June 24, 2010 in Other People's Stuff I Like
Based on the incredible wisdom of my dove chocolate wrapper, I instituted what I have decided to call “Friday Favorites.” My blog covers five main categories, here are my favorite findings this week from each one:
Mommy Musings –>
This week I landed on Miss Mustard Seed’s blog and read her story about starting her own business. I felt I saw parts of my story in her story…like feeling the push to start a business while staying home with her children because paying down school loans wasn’t going to fit in the tight one-income family budget. Here is Miss Mustard Seed in what I am guessing is her home office. Look at that amazing “Guess How Much I Love You” Nutbrown Hare Mural!
Again, I love what I found from Miss Mustard Seed… some tips for getting started in a creative business. I was encouraged by the similarities with how she started and how I started…with a dream, a notebook of notes/ideas/lists, and a name for which there was a dot com available. I guess it is the beginning of a series. I subscribed and am excited to hear more!
