My Life Being Renewed: Go After Your Dreams!

Go After Your Dreams!

December 12, 2012


Hi Lovelies,
Guess what I did the past weekend- I re-learned how to crochet again!! I haven't crocheted anything in almost 15 years- it was so easy to pick back up. Although, honestly I have only done the simple crochet, but I plan on moving on to more complicated patterns soon. This particular scarf that I am wearing is up for sale in my Etsy Shop and I will have more to come soon! If you want an infinity scarf in a particular color, let me know and I can make you one- I am selling them for very reasonable prices.


This makes for two items that I have marked off my bucket list in the past month- first my Etsy Shop {I sold my first item last week!} and now crocheting! It feels great to finally accomplish things that I have dreamed about doing forever. I have a couple more goals that I am working on as well- losing the last few lbs and also growing my nails.


What are some goals that you want to accomplish and are working towards?

  2. Good for you going after what you love! I am all for that! Etsy is a GREAT starting point! I learned a lot about business from it and has given me a driving passion to just GO FOR IT! Great blog!

    1. Once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy & it's rather addictive, I must say!

  8. Great scarf. I love the color! I just took up crocheting last year around Christmas. I've only made a scarf and a baby blanket for my nephew. But, I have ambitions of doing more this year. I think an afghan will be my next project.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  11. Hi Melinda! Just wanna say PROPS to you for opening up a store on Etsy, especially if it was your dream!
    I made a post recently called "Dreamer" where I talked about my desire to start a blog for so long (I know, small dream, but I get intimidated easily!), and I finally got past my fears and just did it. It feels good! So congrats to you for crossing a few things off your list. :)

    Also, I'm obsessed with the scarves you made and have visited your store on Etsy twice already today. Such great prices for such cute little projects!

    Now following as well! :)
