Well, after 8 months of trying to market and sell my Hand knit Felted Baskets, proving to be a fantastic failure at it, it's time to move on to the next BIG thing. It's so strange to me that folks will say how clever and great the baskets are, and that they are priced right, but only one has sold in all this time.

So, I have marked them down by 50% and hopefully I'll be able to get just a little back for all my effort.
But I'm trying to be philosophical about it. I will find the thing that I can I can do well and love doing. I'm just full of ideas! And the neat thing is, the more creative I am, the more great ideas I have!
