Well here it is a new year and I am ready to take it on.
Trying to revamp my ETSY shop. When I started this etsy shop in 2009 it started off with a bang. It was a constant stream of orders. I had clients that couldn't get enough of what I was making. I would spend all day in my studio with a new baby in his bouncy by my side.
Now I am only offering a limited amount of product.
But I also love making small hand held clutch bags from vintage and reclaimed fabrics. So I am offering them in small amounts.
The shop is small and just a few offerings are listed. I am trying to make less but pack a bigger punch with detail and style.
Remembering that I don't have all day to sit in my studio and make.
I am first a mom, a teacher, a wife then a maker.
My schedule is full, from making sure everyone has food to eat, a dog to walk, me to walk, homeschool, errands to run, house to keep, appointments to make, time to read, and finding me time to crochet.
It is a lot! Plus then trying to get in the studio and make.
I am mom but I am also a maker. It is my way to relax and reboot. If I cant find time to do this then everyone suffers.
Thank you all that have stuck with me since day one here on the blog and encouraging me to keep making, with kind comments or purchasing of my things. I am grateful

I have missed catching up with all of you out there so I hope to be able to make a few post in 2016.
Happy New Year to all of you that may still be out there. I think blogging has become a thing of the past in this fast paced world of instant posting on IG and FB.
I started this little blog in May of 2009 it seems like ages ago. I was a new mom, longing to connect with people. I made some amazing friends and it also ripped friends from my life. This month is a fresh slate. Removing all that was negative. Maybe that is why I havent blogged in ages too. I hated logging in and seeing feeds that I no longer wanted popping up. Thankfully I was able to fix that today by removing over 50 accounts from my feed.
Keeping those that really care or have blogs that have a meaning.
Not only did I clean house on this little blog but in our life and home too.
More on that to come for another January post.
Cheers to all for 2016 wishing you all a great start on this new journey.
