This past week has been crazy

Since leaving my job, I have been working on my Nano project- which turned into a short story I will be putting out somehow when I get it finished and a novel I am wanting to self publish when I get it finished. I have decided that, instead of trying the traditional route, I’m going to go ahead and self publish. I’m still looking into the different platforms but I still have time.

On top of that, I’m trying to prepare Bethcessories for the holidays- including my first print advertisement for local business. My word count for Nano is suffering, but my businesses are picking up right now. I guess you always have to sacrifice one thing for another. In the very near future, I’m going to be working more on my DIYmommy page, I’m trying to come up with a good domain for it since DIY mommy is taken. I want this to be different from this website but I’m not sure what to name it.

I’ve been thinking a bit and I’m going to start doing craft tutorials

of some of the Pinterest type crafts I have done over the years- the good ones, not the fails.

I have found a lot of really cute ideas over the years.

I will do a tutorial for the ghost kit I sell (https://www.etsy.com/listing/466162627/halloween-ghost-kits-for-kids-halloween) to show step by step how to put a hanging ghost together closer to Halloween and I will find some of the other simple, easy for kids crafts we have done. I’m also going to continue posting recipe conversions (dairy/soy/gluten free) Note that most of the recipes are not mine, they are normal recipes I have gotten from magazines, websites and cookbooks that I have made altercations to for my daughter and I to eat.

If there are any types of crafts you’d like to see (either video or pictures, I’m going to do both here and on Youtube), let me know in the comments.

I’m going to do a short series to show how to loom knit- I will show a hat first, a bag, then a scarf.
