My Crazy Life

As I sit here tonight, I have to ask, does anyone else think that time goes by way too fast?  I feel as though the last few days have just flown by..... My hope was to put my shop on vacation for two weeks so I could finally make some new items!  But, I have 4 wholesale orders to complete first....

My motivation has flown the coop..... I took a day to veg, bad idea.... I have a strange pain in my left arm that wont go away....Makes it hard to want to sew like that.  I need to find a rhythm to juggle 3 kids, a hubby, and my business.  There have been quite a few days that I say, I need a job....I need to go back....But uh, HELLO! I'm doing what I love!  I just get bogged down by making the same thing over and over and over.....

So my solution is simple!  Sorta.... I closed shop so I could reorganize and stock pile.  No more made to order. Just ready made!  I'm going to spend a lot of time taking new photos next week and relisting.  Should I relist after the two weeks is over or open back up??  I don't want a ton of orders coming in while I'm working on new stuff, that's why I closed.  I have to finish this one wholesale order that I'm working on now, then the next few are a lot more simpler... And shouldn't take too long I hope.  I changed my graphics!  Let me know what you think!  I'm happy with them!  I have matching ones for all my shops now!  =)  

Yes, I have 3 shops!  I will put links to the other 2 once I put items in those!  One is a gift shop, with gift baskets and items for new babies and parents!  The other is like a supply shop, I am getting rid of a ton of craft supplies I never use and are taking up about 1/4 of my storage unit!  Those items may be going up as soon as next weekend!  Please let me know what you would think are essential items a new baby or new mommy would need/want.  I want to make sure my gift baskets are full of useful things!  =D  I've sold a few off line, worth $50, which included burp cloths, a bib, a tag blanket, a crinkle toy, and a hat.  I'm thinking of starting to sell embroidered onesies too, might be cute!  Please let me know what your ideas are!

That is all for now, I must hit the hay as they say....lots to do tomorrow!!

It's Go Time!

As this being my very first blog ever I just want to say....Hi!  I hope that in the coming months you'll pop in often and follow me through my success and failure as I venture on as a new business owner!  There is a lot for me to learn, I welcome any recomendations on how to get my name out there! 
I am a self taught sewer.  Never took a class, was never shown how....I started sewing when the hubs and I recieved a sewing machine as a wedding gift.  I was truly inspired to start my own business when my son was born.  People kept saying how when you have 3 kids....but somehow, everything fell into place.  And here I am, 4 months in, already quit my "job" and am focusing on my business to the best of my ability.  I'm going places.  I have accomplished a step that many are too afraid to take.  Me, the one that never does anything for herself.  It can only keep getting better now right? 
Please take a moment and "like" my fan page and check out my etsy page! I will be having a giveaway very soon!  I'm also always open to suggestions of items you'd like to see or want.  I love doing custom orders for people, don't hesitate to ask!
