My friend Robyn sent a couple of fortunes she and her Mother shared at dinner. One of them was "Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability." This couldn't have come at a better time. I was looking for my next snippet of wisdom to stitch. But also, I've been experiencing some discipline problems of my own.
The holiday season is right around the corner, and with the biggest selling season. In order to get in the running, I need to think about craft fairs and inventory ... now. I need to have a plan and know how I'm going to tackle this. Merchandise lines need to be finished, plans need to be made. However, with the summer coming to end, my brain is stuck on day-dreaming.
I have several ideas, knowing what I want to make, but the list grows. I want to make everything now! Realistically, that just isn't possible, I only have tow hands. The challenge comes in balancing the creative fire without overwhelming myself into inactivity. And the answer, as the cookie so prophetically told, lies in discipline.
This card can be purchased at my Etsy store. A wonderful greeting card on it's own, the photo frame also makes for a great display. It can be put into a 4"x6" frame, or it can be displayed as is on a desk.
