Let’s just clear this up right now.
Just because I don’t leave the house and go to another establishment and get a paycheck every two weeks doesn’t mean I don’t have a real job.
Just because I work from home doesn’t mean I’m sitting here playing with my crafts. I work REALLY hard, every day. This isn’t crafty playtime. I really like doing what I’m doing. I work really hard too though.
Do you have any idea how long it takes to make these things?
Just because I sit on the couch sometimes doesn’t mean it isn’t work.
I do not sit around all day eating bon bons and watching reality tv, I am constantly thinking, making, brainstorming, sewing, cutting, cleaning up after myself, starting new projects, fixing things that break, reading til my eyeballs hurt, brushing up on the latest and greatest, blogging, writing, listing, taking pictures, winding bobbins, applying to shows, tracking inventory, packing the car, untangling threads, unpacking the car, lugging things all over Boston, printing things, logging in, logging out, going to the post office, printing orders, filing papers, buying new supplies, placing orders online, going to the store, refilling packing products, addressing packages… you get the idea…. It’s just like any other job.
To the people who get this, THANK YOU! You know who you are! :)
