Where am I going?

I'm here and there and all over the place but no direction.   I've never been good at goal setting and now retired I  feel all I'm doing is wandering.  I'm the kid in the candy store I want to do it all but don't want to do anything.  Yuk..

The last two Tuesdays I've been trying something new during the off season for sales.  I've had an open studio hoping to bring in a little business.  Didn't go so good.  Don't think I will continue.  The only sales I made were items I had posted on FB to advertise the sale.   You don't know until you try.

I've been posting alot more on Etsy.  Recycled picture frames and boxes.  Here's a couple I just finished yesterday.

This one sold already.  Yeah!
