Welcome to the 101010 project, the brainchild of Robin Norgren of Well of Creations and My Creative Peace, both on Etsy. Every weekday for the next 10 days (well, 11 if you count the wrap up day :) I’ll be featuring one artist participating in the 101010 Project. You can find my responses if you hop over to these ladie’s blogs!
About the 101010 project, Robin writes:
In 2010, hundreds of women met through an online e-course offered by Kelly Rae Roberts called Flying Lessons where all were challenged to take their business ideas to their fullest potential. Many of those women took the challenge and have transformed their businesses, juggling successes and failures alongside managing family, friendships and personal lives.
In 2012, the 101010 project was birthed as a way to tell the stories that have come out of running these independent businesses in light of hard economic times. Beginning May 1, 2012 you are invited to join the FIRST SET of 10 women from that 2010 e-course who will offer candid information about their businesses through the vehicle of 10 questions.
The Hazelnut Cottage blog will feature the first of these 10 artists, who are each answering one question on my blog: What do you need to STOP DOING in your business?

Sonya’s Bio: I’m this crazy JESUS loving creative … with 2 children living smack in the middle of Tennessee. The seeds of my creativity were watered with knitting needles, yarn and nine kittens on a rock covered patio in the mid sixties. Today, we hold the fort down with a few less kittens (3) … and thankfully my creative edge remains in tact. I’m often inspired by some odd ball stuff & compelled to create by the sweet whispers of the HOLY Spirit. An idea generator am I. Creative collaboration is a sweet spot with me and many have locked creative hands with me to work on projects like The Bond & Respond Quilt project of 2010, Inspired Studios Magazine & The Creative Biz Marathon. My service to HIM in the body of the church currently is that of Women’s Ministry Coordinator, Southeast Baptist Church Murfreesboro TN.
What do you need to STOP DOING in your business?
I need to stop doing the easy. Plain and simple. Some talents come easy to us. Because those talents have already been honed, honored and achieved. I need to stop doing the easy. You who are reading this ... need to stop doing the easy. We need to stop doing the easy and do the hard. Deliverance is found in the hard places. Where are your hard places?
