The last few days I am feeling kind of sluggish not much energy for anything. Well to my defence I had a 6 year old with an ear infection in the house and that took a lot of my energy. I didn’t even have time or muse to sit down and knit a few rows not even thinking about creating something new. I have 3 unfinished mice lying around, half a hat and a top that I started for myself.
But my main issue at the moment is, why do I still not know what and when are the American Holidays? Yes I know the ones from Germany, why is there not more push from my side to remember the ones from my second home now? Is it because my hubby pretty much has to work on every Holiday and we never had a chance to start our own traditions? Is it the hype that’s putting me off that is created around each of these Holidays?
I don’t know. The days like Christmas Eve and Easter, St. Nikolaus, Advent, New Years have their own “family routine”. 4th of July we always try to spend with some friends.
My other question is, am I hurting my business if I don’t create some Holiday related items? I think I don’t , my items can be bought all year for any occasion, I think. I just sometimes get this empty feeling or the feeling that I might be making the wrong decisions, when the days around a Holiday all those sales are promoted with a certain theme. Everybody is promoting his/ her newest themed creation.
