Brrr...It's so cold...

Pin It

The above pic was taken at 7:45 today morning. It was around 4 degrees. I went to the terrace just to take some fog photos. If I had gone with my husband for the early morning walk I would have gotten some really nice fog shots, but the thought itself makes me shiver. It's been so cold here for the past 3-4 days.

My poor kid. His school van comes by 6:30 in the morning and you can imagine how cold and dark it would be then. I wish he had his winter break for a few more days. 

I am on a hat-making spree nowadays. I made one more for my kid. So far I have made 4 in total.

The yarn is some kind of a fancy yarn, but it is so soft and fluffy.

Nowadays I am not getting as much time as I would love for crocheting and blogging. The part-time job that I was doing is now almost full-time. So I am not left with much time for other things. I may not be able to post frequently but I will try to. Thanks everyone for your wishes and all the comments that you leave here.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hurray! I did it!

What did I do?

I opened my Etsy stop!


Phew... I am able to breath only now. It feels as though I had been holding my breath all this while.
I had planned to open a shop long ago, but it took me a while to decide between Artfire and Etsy.
I was proceeding at a snail's pace and on top of that other things came up and some how the whole process kept dragging.

On top of it mood swings! One moment I will be all charged up and motivated and the next moment I will develop a terribly cold feet. You know, I wanted to announce the shop during my blogiversary, but couldn't. I would have told you all earlier, but I wasn't certain myself. With my confidence level I would have backed out any time.

Anyway, after dragging for quite some time I finally told myself, "you either do it now or don't bother at all."
So I sat the whole day and figured out how to set a shop, listed the few items that I had made and...
Voila! I am a shop owner now!

How nice that sounds.

I named by shop "From Hobbyhopper's Home." I didn't want the Lazy there. It didn't sound appropriate for a shop :))) There is lot more to be done in the shop, but I am really exhausted now. I will take care of the rest later.

Etsy is a huge place and I know there are hundreds and thousands of sellers out there. This fact dosen't help my morale in any way and it only sinks my confidence level further. Anyway I can't chicken out now. So let's always believe in the best.

I have only a few items now. I will be adding more.
Okay, meet you all later. I am going to sleep. Good night!

Oh's almost 10 days into 2012 and not a single post! Lazy me? Of course not.

I have been working so much lately, but I am not complaining. I am enjoying it. But I am neglecting my house work entirely. Not complaining, again. That is one department that I don't enjoy.

Also, I have been neglecting my blog. Usually I always visit my new followers' blogs
(if they have one) and I leave comments to let them know that I have been there (sometimes I might have missed some), but lately I haven't visited any of your blogs. So all my new followers, please forgive me. It's not that I am not interested in any of you. I sure love to know more about you. I will sure try to catch up with you. I am really happy that you are all here.

Anyway, I completed the hat that I showed you. Actually I completed it long back but could only photograph it today. I also made one for my husband and a scarf for my son. 

Okay, that's it for now.

Thanks everyone for the sweet comments you left here wishing me for the New Year and the blogiversary.
