Today marks the one year anniversary of my emancipation from the world of working for someone else.
I started Happy Fuzzy Yarn in 2006, but kept my day job, and spent evenings, weekends, and vacations dyeing, spinning, filling orders, building my website, etc. After a few years, I began to long for a life as a full time fiber artist. My library job had completely changed from what it once was, and I couldn’t stand to be there. When my position was eliminated, I was overjoyed.
For one entire year, I have been completely self-employed, making my living as a fiber artist. I have never have been happier in my life! I’m not rich, but I wasn’t rich before either, and I’ve managed to keep a roof over my head and pay my bills, and now that my body can follow its own clock, my migraines are almost completely gone.
And I get to do this for a living:
My life is so wonderful!
Thank you so much, all of you who have supported me by buying my yarns and fibers and wearable art, encouraging me, advising me, teaching me, laughing with me, sharing with me, and being there with hugs, whether in person or virtual! Thank you! Hugs to all of you!
Here’s to many more years!
