Just a Minute in...October

Via Ania-Maria Flickr

Just a Minute in....October

Reading... The Handmade Marketplace, some travel books

Writing... Letters, lists and in my many journals

Hoping... To re-open my Etsy soon (I've finally started taking photos of my items...need to list some items at least)

Praying... For new opportunities to come along

Looking... For a new job

Thinking... About studying again (this is pretty much definite)

At the moment I've decided study next year but I will try and get another job, most likely in retail (for flexibility). I think a change is what I need right now.

And as I mentioned I will hopefully re-open the Etsy store. It might be slow at first and I'm going to change my branding slightly but I'm finally doing something about it.

Oh and I'm thinking of getting this bag for studying next year...

I would like it for an everyday bag anyway so I will probably get it no matter what. 

Hope you all had a great weekend. Have a fantastic week.

Great bag! And I highly recommend going back to school; I think it can be personally and professionally fulfilling.

gorgeous, gorgeous bag! you deserve it.

can't wait to see your new etsy shop! ^_^ and i hope you can find the job you're looking for. you're right--retail DOES suck :P now whenever i go into stores, i look at all the tagged merch and think "someone has to tag that! someone has to organize it!" etc. etc.

i'm looking for a better job too.

good luck to us!

This is a great list, Gracie. You must be feeling so much better as you start to figure out your plan for where you want life to take you. Well done for being brave!

Hope you have a wonderful week. And I'll be watching for that new Etsy shop of yours!

I think you should get that bag. Looking forward to seeing your etsy when it re-opens as well and possibly being a customer. I loved that hairband you made that other day :)
