Turning Passion into Profit

country living

For the last few months I have been trying to think of ways to turn my passions into a business. I wasn’t shooting for the stars, just for Etsy, something reasonable and can be done even when I return to a full-time job. Well, I am definitely a crafty girl, but I have had quite a bit of trouble finding exactly what craft I wanted to use. I enjoy paper crafts most, so cards/stationary was the first option, but I just wasn’t feeling it once I got started. So, now I have dabbled in about everything else, glass art, jewelry making…

Any ideas?

This morning on the Today Show, they had a segment on turning your passion into profit. It has a lot of great tips, I just need to figure out what that passion is and I will be on a roll. The original story came from this Country Living article. Watch the Today Show video here.

There Are No Words

Honestly, we all have times in our lives when we are not laughing a lot, but that is why God created these people, just to put a smile on my face. I have truly never laughed so hard in my life.

Favorite Things

Josephine Baker

Since coming back from Paris last year, I have been completely obsessed with Josephine Baker. I really see her as a strong woman who really owned her sexuality. She was also a great performer. Plus she was a part of the group of Black Americans who no longer wanted to put up with the racism and double standards of the U.S. in the 20s and 30s and moved to Paris. It is rumored that Paris was a color-blind city. As I have looked into this, there are a lot of mixed messages on if this is true, but nonetheless, I loved it. Every day I think about when I can go back.

My Favorite Person

Lenny Kravitz is definitely my favorite person in the world. I love everything about him. Anyone that knows me, knows my love for Lenny is a LARGE part of my world. Lenny played photographer for Russian Vogue. He photographed some of his closest friends and family, including his daughter Zoe, Jay-Z and Beyonce, Alicia Keys, and Lionel Richie.

Enjoy!
