Have you set any crochet goals for July? I have and let me tell you why.
The first of any month is a great time to make a list of the goals that you’d like to achieve within the next 30 days. Here in the USA, July is a hot one and it might not seem like prime time for crocheting BUT this month also serves as a reminder that there’s less than six months to get ready for the holidays. That means, whether you’re stocking a shop, or planning to crochet and give homemade gifts this year, you’d better get cracking! We all know how quickly time flies.
June was (and always is) a crazy busy month in my house. It’s filled with many ups and downs. For us, there are lots of really good memories, days, and occasions that we celebrate along with some terrible bad ones that we can never forget. Because of this, it’s usually my least productive month… and I think that held true this year.
BUT… With the new month starting… It’s time to move onward and upward!
So, without any further ado, here’s my crochet plan for July:
One: I plan to implement some of the ideas that were discussed in my 5 Tips to work more Productively at Home post. I’d especially like to start using a work day ending routine.
Two: Branching off of that, I’m going to use a set schedule of hours that will be broken up into segments for work, housework, writing, and pleasure.
Three: I will be adding more stock to my Etsy shop… ASAP. I’ve actually got a bunch of items done, ready, and waiting to go. I’ve just gotten really lazy about doing the listings.
Four: I’m working on taking better photos for my shop and social media. More about this in a future post… stay tuned.
Five: I’m studying crochet trends and searching for new patterns that go with them. By month’s end I want to have at least 5 new patterns/projects under my sleeve and in my Etsy store.
My goals are based around the fact that I’m in the process of building a small business around my crochet.
What are your crochet goals? Are you an established seller? A new shop owner like me? Making gifts for loved ones? Just having fun?
Whatever your goals are for this coming month, here’s wishing you accomplish all you set out to do AND have some fun doing it!
Share your July crochet goals in the comments. I love hearing from my readers and maybe if we share our plans, goals, and wishes, in public, they will all come true.
