Don't Push Me!

You know how you stand at the edge of a pool, ready to dive in, but you just can't?
Everyone is yelling at you to jump, but you're not ready?

That's how life is for me.

For as long as I can remember I've been stubborn and strong willed.
And if you tell me to do something, I'm more likely not to do it.
I like to do things in my own time and on my own terms.

That means, the greater the pressure, the less likely I am to do anything.

People have been telling me for years that I should be selling my craft work.
And I've always wanted to, but I guess I just wasn't ready.

Until last week.

Because on Saturday, I jumped into the pool.
I opened my own store on
I am so excited about it!!
I guess the planets must have just aligned or something, because it was one of those snap decisions.
I thought "I'm doing it!" So, I did it!
Once I'm ready I don't overthink things, I do all the overthinking for years in advance.

Jump in with me, the water is divine.

  1. I don't need to shop on your Made It site - just make two of everything you make for your daughter and send it over, then just invoice me!!! ;)

    Love your work!

  2. Good for you! I hope your madeit store goes swimmingly :)


  3. Glad you took the plunge. Pun intended!

    Good Luck.

  4. You sound a bit like me, the harder they push, the more I dig my heels in.
    Good for you that you finally gave in! and good luck with it :)

  5. Good for you Thea. I hope it goes well for you. If you can turn your hobby/something you love into something that will even make you a little extra cash, that's great. And you will be making loads of other people happy in the process.

  6. Congrats cant wait to take a peep!

  7. Well done, Thea. Such a giant leap into the new, but I'm happy the water is fine for you.

  8. The planets really are aligning for you. You will do great. You have so much talent and it is great you are doing something with it. Much success. Must head over and get me a scarf!

  9. Well done. Love it. And can I just say the way you described yourself is so close to me! Stubborn, string willed... tell me to do it and I'll do the opposite. Us Scorpios gotta stick together!

  10. Congratulations! This is fantastic, and so exciting! Good luck! I'm sure you'll be very successful! xx
