I have big dreams, goals for my life. They involve both my jewelry, but also my nursing career as well.
One of those goals include buying a house. A goal that will both require work from both my nursing job and my business. I have been working hard to save up money so that I can afford to buy a house. I want a house, besides the equity portion (yay adult life), but also so I can have 24 hour/ 7 days a week access to my jewelry studio. My studio is currently split between my apartment (where I do beading, wire wrapping, knotting etc) and my parent's house (where I do my soldering, hammering, rolling, and drilling). Not that I don't mind coming home to make jewelry, I just wish I had more time to get stuff done.
Pinterest (yes I am obsessed, 13,000 pins and counting), has been helping me to plan out what I want my studio to look like, as well as ideas for the rest of my future house. Follow me on Pinterest (link is in the upper right corner of the page), to see what has been inspiring me lately.
While this goal is a big one, breaking it down into smaller steps while keeping the big picture in mind helps me stay focused on the WHY, by working on the HOW. I am a big fan of to do lists.
So while it may not happen right away, I know that a house is in my future, and I am going to work really hard so that I can obtain this goal. I also want to go to Greece soon, but that's a whole other goal in itself!
