I’ve been contemplating how to go about announcing that I’ve finally decided to quit my day job and get serious with my small business. There you go. I just said it. It’s a long story. And its been in the works for what seems like years, though it was just last year that I came up with the novel idea of selling my own line of sewing notions and dressmaking supplies.
If you remember from last year, when I wrote the post on The Real Me, I was seriously struggling with juggling my day job, my small Etsy business, keeping my whit here on the blog and even just day to day things like cleaning and cooking, not to mention at the time I was participating in Self Stitched September. I also found that many of you struggle with the same things. It’s kind of drag if I do say so myself. Well, let me say that my day job is a drag, but all of the other things are things and dreams that I actually want to pursue.
So it is now that I’m officially announcing that I will be full-timing the shop, tending my crazy ideas and trying to cultivate more excitement and fun here on the blog and around the web. I’m terribly, terribly excited about it. Oh I’m so excited, sometimes I find the excitement catching in my breath!!!
Ironically, though, ahem….you’ll find the shop in vacation mode at present. Ha ha aha. It’s my last week, this week, as a secretary and I know its rather strange, but I wanted to take a break from all of my extracurricular activities and get in more of a groove for this coming week when I’ll officially begin hitting the shop hard. I know, weird. I’ve got a fun giveaway planned for the small reopening next week. And I have so many more ideas and products, to get going on and show you!
So, now, I’ll be a full-time shop keeper. I hope you’re excited too.
