What I've learned so far:
To make a living at craft, you have to work a lot harder than working a 9-5 job. A LOT harder. But maybe it's worth it.
To loose weight, you have to take your time and get your body in shape BEFORE you start dancing up a storm. I'll be slow dancing for at least another week before I work up a full sweat again with that pulled muscle in my back.
I could possibly make a decent living sewing, if I could tolerate it and focus on that and give up my flower jewelry.
Even though most people like flowers, not everyone wants to wear them. I can live with that. I just need to reach the 3% OK 1% of the population that will.
I can earn a very good living at product design, but I loose some freedom with as well.
I'm getting old.
