My Summer plans

I have been thinking about this for a while.. I know I need to cut back.. and focus on one thing.. so for this summer.. I am planning on focusing on getting rid of the stuff in the house.. either thru Ebay or Listia.. and put off my crochet store until fall.. I have more than enough private orders to get thru.  If I make anything for sale.. I will put it up here or on Facebook.. then in the fall.. I will do a blitz of putting items up for sale on Etsy.. I am also not taking any more orders for this summer.. thanks..
