The topic: Website problems were an eye opener

----------------------------------------------

I had no idea it had been so long since I'd done any upkeep on the store. The html catalog pages were dated 2008. Which means I hadn't added any stock since then.

The only thing I'd sold in years was catnip. Then I ran out after Brian moved his workshop home and he commandeered my catnip growing area for gardening tools.  He needed the shop for work.

I got to wondering why I quit making jewelry. I have thousands of dollars in supplies. I really liked making things. Why did I quit? After thinking about it, I remembered that one morning I woke up and my right thumb hurt. It hurt a lot. I couldn't move it at all. I asked the chiropractor about it and he said I'd jammed it.

I don't think so. And I couldn't do much of anything because anything I tried, movement brought on that horrible pain. So, I quit making jewelry.

My thumb took as long time to heal. Then my mom died. Then Brian moved his shop home. Then he shut down that business and started another one where he was home all the time. I had to adjust. And I just never got back into it.

Which is a shame, because I really enjoyed it.

As much as I enjoy making cards and paper projects. I've had folks ask about me selling cards.

And I think once the store is up and running, I'll start making stuff again. Do something constructive with my time instead of playing Candy Crush Saga.

And maybe make a few tunas while I'm at it.
