On the verge...

of quitting selling my cards and crafts.

This has been such a stressful few weeks for so many reasons and I want to be making things for fun, not with the pressure of selling them and having other people receive them and maybe not like them :(

It's stopped being fun.

Which means that maybe I should stop doing it.

Oh noz! I'm sorry to hear you have had a tough time the last few weeks! Maybe take a month off, and see how you feel?
You're right tho, there is no point in doing it if you're not enjoying it anymore :(

*hugs*

just take a break from them, you'll feel happy to see them in a few weeks time and can come back to them with a bunch of fresh ideas itching to try things out again :-)

I need a break too!

I agree, have a break and see how you feel after that. This is a very stressful time of year (well it is for me!) so not the best time to make a big decision like this *hugs*

It would be a shame if you quit.
I agree with taking a break. Often a break from it really helps when you get back into it cos you have lots of nice fresh ideas and also you can look back in a more constructive way because you aren't so stressed as you were before you took a break.

Sorry to hear your not having a good time at the moment. I think your work is beautiful. How about taking a small break from it, then coming back?

Maybe just take a break for a few weeks maybe and then if you still feel the same way then quit. :) Maybe spend a day or 2 a week making things just for fun and not for orders?

I'm taking a break too and hope to have a fresh start in the new year. *hugs*

Sorry to hear it has been tough. I think taking a break and then re-thinking sounds like a very good idea.

It's definitely time for a break. You should never feel like you have to do it - especialy if you're in fear of some random oik ruining your day.

Anyway - it's Christmas, have some time to yourself, and then in the new year when you see something that makes you think 'Oh jeez I could do better than that with my hand tied behind my back' then go back to it. [hugs]
