Collaboration ~ Let's Do IT

For most of us moving onto the next chapter is quite frightening.  Part of that journey for me is cleaning up the clutter, organizing and trying to get the things around me in order.  You may look at this as a procrastination tactic but in the end when I look around I take a deep breath and feel relieved.  Then I’m able to move onto the next project.  (I have donated dozens of magazines over the past week...progress!!)

Being an entrepreneur is challenging and fulfilling but also VERY demanding regardless of how large or small your business is right now.  Good self-care is necessary and achieved in a different ways by each of us.  Exercise, eating right and stress relief help raise our awareness, increase vitality and clarify our vision.  I use meditation to focus on opening my third eye to help increase my "knowing."  Sometimes I include gemstones in my meditation. Surprised?  I'm not.


Increasing awareness and tuning in is important when you are a business person.  Maintaining focus is vital to the survival of your business.  I think that many of us spend LOTS of time chasing this and that and spinning ideas of what "might" work.  I'm finding more and more that if I don't live my life based on what-if and I live my life based on right-NOW and continue doing what works then the world around me operates more smoothly and my stress stays at a level that I can manage.

Well my meditation is a great reminder about why I started blogging in the first place.  Presently at Fairies Market I am working on growing my blog.  And what does that mean??? For me it means remembering why I started this electronic journey... to connect with others who design and make jewelry ~ crafty folks who want to share quality products that people feel good about buying. 

I do connect with others on Etsy through teams and that works great but I would like to use this platform to connect with others.  If Y-O-U are a crafter, artist, designer or hobbyist let me know.  I would love to share your story here on Fairies Market. Collaboration works so let's work together and GROW.

So REACH OUT let me know you're there ... leave a comment.  I would LOVE to work with you by featuring you and your work here on Fairies Market where all are welcome.
