2nd Thoughts

I am having second thought about my sewing business.

1.)  I'm wondering if it's worth it anymore.  It's becoming work.  I mean, there are some days I hate the thought of sitting in front of the sewing machine.

Don't get me wrong, I love sewing and I love the look on peoples faces when they receive something handmade...but my house is a mess and I feel guilty for not spending every second with my kids.

I'm hoping this gets easier once pre-school starts in the fall.

2.)  I think my constant sewing is putting my health at risk.  My thumbs have been going numb lately.  I have carpel tunnel issues (thanks to my years of being a paralegal) and my little fingers and sometimes my ring fingers go numb at times, but now with my thumbs....I don't know.

3.)  I am beginning to wonder if there is still a market for what I do.  Why spend $15-$20 for something custom made when I can get something close that was mass produced for half the price?

4.)  I'm not really sure how to get market myself.  I have business cards and there is a magnet on the back of our truck and I ordered a canvas bag that I'll use as a diaper bag.  But I really don't know if there is anything else I can do.

Like I said, I'm having second thoughts.  But maybe that's a good thing?  Maybe that's what will help me succeed?

I don't know.

Happy sewing everyone!
