Well, I did it...pulled an all nighter working on boards. I am committed to getting this up and going in the direction I want this to go! Now it's time to hit the blogs and get a few more boards up to see if I can get in some shops around town. I have a good friend who has a salon that's already promised one of the boards a spot in her shop... Now I just need to figure out which one I want to give her. I made one that I am thinking about giving the music director at my church and may make a duplicate of it for another music minister I know.
This has been really fun for me, and I just need to work on making sure I can balance starting something new with family. Now's a good time since my husband will be off of work for a few weeks trying to recouperate or figure out if he has to have surgery on a hurt shoulder. He's here to watch little man so I can work.
Why didn't I do this years ago, when I threw away all of the projects or scrapped them...I could've been bigtime by now!!! :o)
Oh well. I've had a lot of fun working on these boards and they are going to be my main focus. I'm also just getting some orders for crochet in, mainly family and I probably won't charge them much for the crochet (what they want is easy) and it's a start. Bigger things will mean charges even for family though, because I'm wanting to actually run a business.
Keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer that I can get in some craft shows soon! Hoping to have enough and become "established" enough with the boards that I can get into the region's biggest craft fair, Affair of the Heart in February. We'll see!!!

However, parents of physically challenged children have to be especially creative to make sure that their young people learn the daily life skills that they need to be self-sufficient. Occupational…
