Blog Carnival-2nd Quarter of My Life

Judy of jnoriginals is our host for this week's blog carnival and she gave us these two themes for the carnival: 1. Are you in the first quarter of your life (up to age 25), second quarter of your life (up to age 50), or 3rd quarter (beyond age 50)? Describe your goals and dreams for your current "quarter." How have they changed over time? 2. Describe someone who influenced the person you are today, or who motivated you to do something. Explain how this is so. Is this a positive or negative? The first topic actually threw me for a surprise! At 27, that puts me in the 2nd quarter of my life! Wow...am I there already! Most of the time I feel 50 years old, but in my mind, I'm still a youngin'. I think it's because we hang out with a lot of "older" people that makes me feel young. After all, Jesse is almost 7 years older than I am!

My current goal right now would be to find an office job that I enjoy and get out of the factory life. I am happy to have a job...and a good job at that, but I want to use the degree that I spent 4 years of my life earning. I would like to find a job that suits me better and makes better use of my skills and talents. My dream is somewhat similar, but a little far off. I would love to turn my scrapbooking into a full-time job. What Etsian wouldn't love to work full-time on their craft :) But a dream is all this is for now. I have to be realistic with my life and figure out a way to work my goals and my dreams together. I'd love nothing more than to find a part-time job that paid well enough that I could work more on my scrapbooking. Or a job where I could telecommute. I'd love to do more shows and add more stock to my Etsy shop! I just need more time to get it all done! Fingers crossed that I reach my goals and dreams before the next quarter of my life :)


  1. I have a feeling that one day you will reach your dreams! You are certainly deserving of it and work so hard that they will come true!

    By the way, you are a youngin!

  2. You work so hard toward those goals. Hang in there! You can do it!

  3. Agree with Sharla!! I think you can reach your dreams very soon!! :D

  4. Your work is so wonderful that I am sure it will happen sooner than you think. In fact, I think you will be in a position of trying to figure out how to continue keeping up with the demand and having to decide to let your job go!

  5. It IS strange to think of your life in quarters, isn't it?! I think you're well on the way to achieving your scrapbooking goal, though. Lovely work!

  6. good goals! enjoy your 2nd quarter! {:-D

  7. I'm right there with you! You're young, you have plenty of time to build up your Etsy business!

  8. I think you very well could realize your dreams! You are talented, enthusiastic, hard-working, and motivated. And your work is lovely! all the best to you!
