It’s amazing how much I missed having a computer (at home) for the past couple of weeks. I now have a replacement and it’s like having a limb returned. LOL 😉 Can you relate?
The time away from “the screen” has not been unproductive though. I actually accomplished more than I had expected (by far!) including “mapping out” my crochet book, which I have been hoping to create for a long, long time. I am really happy with the concept for the book (fun and informative) the projects I’ve designed already and how quickly it all came together, when I really focused on this one project. Now I am deciding on the yarns I want to use for each project and getting started on completing them. It’s a tall order but crochet has always been my first love in yarn-crafts so I think it’s going to be a lot of fun too.
I have also completed the new recipes, updates and variations for my second vegetarian cookbook and have a proposal ready to send out, as of this week. Again, a project that has been a long time in the works and again I am truly happy with my work to date, on this venture. Cooking is a passion for me as you know, so it’s been wonderful to get back to creating new recipes.
Also in the works, my haiku calendar is now being considered by a major calendar publisher, I have been offered the opportunity to write another bi-weekly recipe column for a BC newspaper (hopefully starting in May). Also plan to start selling a natural cosmetic/skin care line that I truly feel good about promoting, also coming up next month.
I have entries in a couple of poetry/writing competitions. Again something I haven’t pursued for a long time.
Last but not least, I have finally been able to get more copies of my first cookbook: Not Just for Vegetarians, so will also be selling these (including an online sale/promotion) in the very near future.
I’m swamped, but in a very good way! 🙂
