Saleable :-s

One of the Bad things to do with being self Employed and stressed is what I find it has turned me into.
Everything I Craft, I feel has to be sellable. I was making a Blanket for my upcoming Grandson the other day, Whilst making it I counted the Hours it took so I could work out how much this would have to be priced up for to sell, I took photo's that would be good enough to go on ebay and etsy not just good enough for me to track what I had made via my Blog. It is something that is haunting me almost...... My Craft did for a while turn into my business and now yes it is nice if I make something and someone would like to buy it infact it is fabulous but I need to Craft just to enjoy Crafting. I have seen many things Crocheted that I have really though what is the point of that??? no one would buy it would they and is it even sellable? Not oh wow that is nice I would love one of them  ha ha one of these things is Crochet covers for tins. Why would someone want to Crochet a cover for a tin?? but it is done, here on this amazing Blog I love; Attic 24
Yes the are beautiful but the time involved is just not justified to me....... that was until today ha ha light bulb moment for me. Why not just for the sake and enjoyment of it cover a tin..... Not to try and sell but to actually just do for myself to enjoy the art of Crochet....... and so I did and how amazingly refreshing it was too :-)

Hi Wendy, I have just popped over to your blog to ask if you could email your address to me, as I will be sending the Travelling Craft Box on to you later this week. I'm glad you have discovered crafting just for the sake of it, as there is so much pleasure to be had by just making items simply because you can. Happy crafting, Pj x

I find most crafting is like that, especially so with knitting and crochet. Glad you are enjoying it :0)
