Only through faith can one forge ahead despite the down times.
Second, forge ahead.
Continue doing what you love to do.
This is NOT THE TIME to give up even though it may seem that way.

I just had a week off from my almost two months of daily plushie making.
At first, I was so excited for the break.
The past months were soooo busy...I think, one time, I found myself unconsciously talking to one of my plushies.

I still stayed productive though...
This time, I channeled all my creative powers to making accessories that I, myself, would love to wear.

The new challenge made me happy...for a while...
I'm a dreamer, yes...but I still have REAL, financial obligations too.
The thought of not having orders for a week was scary.
My mind suddenly raced back to the time when I was still an employee...
Monthly Paychecks, Bonuses, Allowances...
I will be lying if I say that the thought of going back to work did not cross my mind.
To keep me sane, I kept repeating these three simple but powerful words --
GOD WILL PROVIDE.
There are times when it seems as if God doesn't answer...
Yes, I have my share of seeming unanswered prayers as well...
I do believe though that eventually, He will...when the time is right...
I was fortunate, I guess, because just when the voices of self-doubt started getting louder...I felt Him answer through the story of a boy and his DIY video arcade.
Before his fame, Caine only had one customer...
But did he give up?
But did he give up?
I cried like crazy after watching this video.
He's just a child.
To have that much passion at such a young age and to be rewarded for that...
It's everyone's dream, right?
I appeared on "Good News" again over the weekend. My appearance on the show
helped me remember that is what I want to do.
So after moping...
I set aside my self doubts, went back to work and prayed that everything will be okay...
Captain America and Thor -inspired plushies

After a week of slow sales...I got new orders.
Isn't God great? :)
