My Intentions for this Business
What are my intentions for this business?
That is a good question to ask myself again now, and it’s been a minute since I really considered this – and now that I have I feel very pleased. Pleased because it has changed so much in someones and so little in others.
Here is the short story – but if you are interested to see them all, I’ve attached photos below 🙂
Turns out my intentions were written in a smooth outpouring across 4 pages and with that, 4 over arching areas. 4 is not a number that comes up much for me, so I find this very curious.
Anyhoo, 1st download was around my person space, my income and ability to support my son as a single mum. It covers my desired to demonstrate tangibly to my son how an ethic business redefines ‘success’, and remains still as focused as ever on building a private LOCAL enterprise centred around NZ made products.

2nd download from the brain had me revisiting creativity (the big WHY) of the business and how I see my role in inspiration, accessibility, creative expression and creative freedom. My desire to re-design and re-imagine and set a pledge to really solve the ‘size inclusion’ design riddle.
Highlight from this page: To develop patterns & present patterns that are a ‘safe pair of hands’ for all crafters, making knitting accessible, inclusive & enjoyable
3rd was as focused as ever on making beautiful products that craft and WEAR well – and a neat addition to that was building on the accessible side; how to make a range of ethical and beautiful products more accessible in their price.

4th was a neat new dive into what community looks, feels and functions like. From free patterns to online knit groups, tutorials, to social enterprise and what can I do to give back – with the last intention being to generally make a happier life for all.
From here I can run all decisions and actions against my intentions to make sure I am on track – cool right?
