Expanding horizons



I have finally decided to expand my horizons so to speak. I have been selling my lovely little creations in my etsy shop for just over a year now. I keep seeing the phrase dont put all your eggs in one basket, and this has prompted me to expand my online presence. I have opened another shop under the same name at ArtFire. I realize that maintaining multiple shops will be more work, but honestly I dont consider the computer time to be work. The time I spend on the computer in the evenings is my down time at home.

What prompted this? I really enjoy creating, and tend to be prolific at times, and selling my wares is a grand thrill for me. Right now I'm truly switching over to believing this what I should be doing as a business/career, for myself, and my happiness. After doing my taxes for the last year, and crunching some numbers I came to a conclusion that it is possible earn income enough to help support my family, and my creativity. 

Hmm.....so how's that for challenging yourself creatively? Actually I'm still creating, and here are the pictures of the new pendants......

Just for GlassIdentities:

Bread Pudding- pour 2 cups scalded milk over 4 cups cubed slightly old bread, let sit for a few and mix- 1 cube melted butter/margerine add 1/2 cup sugar, 2 lightly beaten eggs, and dash or so of nutmeg or cinnamon. Mix the bread mix and the butter mix put in a buttered casserole dish, and bake at 375 for 40-45 min....do the toothpick test...I like mine warm.
