my creative space

In my creative space today, and for the next few weeks, I’ll be writing — journaling actually — about where I want to be this time next year. My daughter is enrolled in some morning camps and I’ll be hanging out in the coffee shop nearby with a notebook and pen (and banana bread for breakfast!).

I can’t believe my “baby” will be entering kindergarten in the Fall of 2011, which is all day in Nebraska. (Do any school systems still do half-day kindergarten?) I don’t think I want to go back to a regular 9-5 job. I really enjoy being self-employed. I’m trying to decide whether I want to continue and expand my freelance business or take my eco-friendly crafting to the next level: write for publications, write a book, pattern design or wholesaling.

Tomorrow I’ll be back with a thrifty find and Friday I’ll have two washcloth stitch patterns to share.

You can see what everyone else is up to over at Kirsty’s blog.

    Julie,
    This post really resonates with me…today I joined the International Association of Journal Writing (www.iajw.org) to inspire my journaling. My goal: same as yours. Where do I want to be a year from now?
    Thanks for the slice of serendipity!
    Anne

    It is tough when our babies grow up, isn’t it? Mine is a senior this year. *sniff* I might have to get coffee and banana bread to ease the transition too. Looks like a lovely way to spend the morning.
