Sunday random thoughts

I want to make a new header for my blog but I don't know what to do. If anyone has any ideas for me or inspiration, let me know! Hmm. I'd like to keep the general feel. Something whimsical, vintage/retro, coffee related, or kitchsy, I am not sure! Maybe I will have to think about it today. Of course I want it to represent me and the blog. I am probably making it more difficult than it needs to be.

On Etsy yesterday I sold three pairs of earrings which is really amazing since I hadn't sold anything in that shop for 2 weeks again. Yay! But what's funny is, the other shop(pillow stuff) that I bought a Storque showcase for, didn't sell anything. I did get decent views on my pillow cover in the first Storque showcase spot, and hearts throughout the shop. I hope at least one turns into a sale! I haven't been motivated to sew for a few weeks now, it's not good. I have fabric sitting around and ideas but no motivation to sit down and make them right now. I had been working more on the jewelry lately.

I plan to exercise today which would make 6 days this week exercised instead of just 5! The only day I skipped was Thursday. I have also been trying to do something unthinkable for me - jog. I don't plan on really becoming a jogger or runner. I have ankle issues and could probably only do a little at a time. So that's what I have been attempting. For instance, Friday night I jogged a total of 11 minutes. That was my 2nd time attempting to actually jog. The first time, I jogged only 6 and a half minutes. But to be honest, I wasn't even sure I could do that much! So by the second attempt, inside in a/c I was able to go 5 minutes before my first walking break. Anyway, that is a big deal to me!
Have a happy Sunday!

Congratulations on your Etsy sales. I know how it is when you lose the inspiration to work on something...but at least you are still making the jewelry. I haven't done anything in quite a while. I keep saying that I am going to do it tomorrow......

Congrats on the sales & also congrats on the exercising! That's great... I am trying to get myself motivated to start up again. It's tough. And for your header - are you in to photography at all? Maybe you could shoot photos & make a college for your header? That way you can pick & chose what shots you want to take to keep your theme the same.

Have a great week!
