Handmade With Love is expanding. We are about ready to release our newest patterns for sale and a new service to pattern designers.

Can't wait for you all to see the newest designs that have been rolling around in our heads. They will soon come to life. We are so excited.

In today's economy it is hard sometimes for folks to justify spending on unnecessary things. And with the skyrocketing costs of shipping it makes it twice as hard to make that decision to purchase. So, I'm looking to expand my business by offering pattern owners the opportunity to have their patterns written in PDF form.

I am also expanding my line of product and would like to carry your patterns, designs and product on consignment.

If you would be interested in either service please contact: Susan Peterman, for details.

Thank you,

Letting Go!

Letting go of a dream can be very hard for me and taking on new projects is way to easy.

Let's talk about taking on way more than I'm able to handle period. Must less handle well.

"Susan, would you like to ......(you name the project)". My answer, "OH that would be so much fun and it sound very interesting. SURE!", I say.

So...what all am I involved in?
Guild Master of an online guild
2 online
the other
Editor of the Devotions column for Ruby eZine
2 different blogs
A multitude of online social networking sites
2 Facebook personal...the other business
2 Twitter pages...both business
A new pattern company to publish first projects this fall
I'm a wife....mother...grandmother...
***Oh and did I mention that I work full time?***
I must be a glutton for punishment.


I will no longer be the Guild Master at Sew What guild on ArtFire as of August 17, 2009. Giving that up for someone who can do a better job that I. New and better leadership almost always brings positive change.
Will drop all but 2 of my social networks...praying about which one's to keep and which to let go.

I'm sure as I 'weed out' the many responsibilities in my life that the ones that remain will benefit greatly. More time to invest will mean better products for my online venues and my family.

I know I'm not alone in the issues of taking on more than I'm capable of handling well.
Is it just a woman thing???

I know we are such multi-taskers but honestly....
