I have been trying to claw my way back into making things for a while now. But every time I would get close (the canvas purchased, the paint ready) I would chicken out, fearing I wasn't good anymore. It had been too long, and I was too old to be "artsy" anymore. Well, no more! I have had it with my excuses on why I can't be or do what I want. Lizzie, quite complaining about not doing things when you don't even try!
I have done it, after years of saying I'm going to. I have gotten my hands dirty and cast my apprehension to the way side. I am making organic doggy soaps :) Welcome to Trois Amis Soaps! (French for Three Friends, because I have 3 dogs)
The web page is made, nothing is up on the site yet. (SOON SOON SOON!) I'm still trying to figure out all the business stuff. The soaps have been tested, (on my kids and i, yeah i know it sounds weird, but if i wouldn't use it on myself i don't want it on my dog!) and are wonderful. My kids think it's funny use "mommy's special dog soap". Plus, with all this testing my dogs smell so good!
But as excited as I am, I am scared to death. This is a huge step for me, to create something of my own, to tell people about it and to follow through. I may fail, it may not turn out as I plan, I keep telling myself that is OK. I am making things with my hands, my kids are enjoying being my helpers. We are creating together, and for the first time in years I stopped just dreaming and am doing.
Look, I've got a blog button over there ----------------->
I hope you'll stop by from time to time and see how my store is doing. Keep me accountable, and remind me not to be afraid. Thank you Bloggy friends for always being such a supportive, wonderful and safe group for me to work out my craziness.
And if there's anything you've been wanting to do, but have been scared to try, DO IT! I got your back :)
au revoir, adieu, ciao, till next time...
