I must admit that the last few weeks have been extremely challenging for both of us with this never-ending renovation. As I type this post, my feet feel like frozen blocks, my fingers are in pain from always being cold and John is plugging away as always on the house.
We are sleeping in a motel, yes a motel. Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would be staying in a motel for an extended period of time. A “budget-friendly” motel is the price of a mortgage payment on a very nice home. And the price of an average 2-star hotel cost more than $3000 per month. This is why we’re in a motel. But I suppose things could be worse.
So how do I keep my sanity? I knit! Knitting is extremely therapeutic. I have limited time so I reserve my knitting time for nighttime; I knit accessories that I can start and finish in two to three hours. Unlike renovating, I see a finished product quickly.
Well, I have tons of hats. I tried selling them on Etsy but I was a lost little fish in a huge ocean. Plus, Etsy takes a commission from each sale–if you’re even lucky to be found. Actually, I think I was more like a speck of sand on a nameless beach somewhere in the South Pacific.
Since I have a platform with my blog, I figured why not make an attempt to sell my hand-knit accessories right here. Of course, knitting is way off topic on a home renovation blog and soon-to-be decorating blog, but that is one of things that is so great about having a blog– I can write about practically anything or even sell something.
