    I’ve accepted that the pencil boxes will require glue to hold them together. Either, the joints are too tight, making it too difficult to assemble, or they’re loose enough to fit together nicely, but won’t stay together. Glue fixes the second problem. The first one is not as easily overcome. I took some pictures of…

    Getting traction on YouTube is not easy. I thought I was doing it right, and things were looking good in the fall of last year. Since December, growth, as measured in subscribers and watch minutes, has really slowed down. I’m not sure what to do.

    There’s a different satisfaction that comes from working for yourself. Since I woke up today, I’ve been working on something. As ever, I was hoping to get to the shop but ended up getting things done on the computer.

    Running a business is hard and expensive. The other day, I opened a bank account for the business. Today, I applied for a credit card. Buddy asked me a lot of questions about my finances. It was only while answering them that I took notice of just how much I’ve been spending. Next, I have…

    I’ve got to figure out a way to map out the project ideas that I have for myself. I’d be surprised if this is the first time you’ve read about this. It’s been a problem for as long as I can remember. Trouble is, I haven’t got a plan for how to fix it.

    If you had a freeway billboard, what would it say? I want to continue growing my small business this year, SANA Stationery & Gifts.

    I was working away at a few things today. I put the first coat of wipe-on poly on the bookshelf. Finished turning a bowl. Made a handle for the crochet kit and filmed it for Monday’s video. Once these things are wrapped up, I’ve got a few more things to get started on, like yarn…

    I’ve been having some luck lately with people being interested in some of the stuff I make. The bowls seem to be drawing people’s attention. My friends are good people and want to support me, but I have a really hard time asking them for money. I have a hard time asking for money more…

    I was up until 3 am this morning, taking photos of pens. I wanted to make sure to get some pictures before delivering them. This afternoon, we made our way over to Bill Miles for Men to deliver 18 pens.

    “I have to give this a go,” I keep telling myself. My parents reiterate the same to me when I speak with them. “If I don’t try this, I’ll always wonder what could’ve come of it.” So, I’m doing it. Most of the time, it’s pretty good. Sometimes, I get nervous. I’m an anxious person,…

    Almost a month ago, we signed up with Aro Market, a shop that sells crafts. It’s like a street market in a store. It’s all right. Tomorrow, we’re going in to set up our shelf.
