I have decided to let my pattern go for FREE! Enjoy, and share photos when you’re done :)
Most people make changes to their business at the beginning of the new year. But I prefer to make mine as my busy season wraps up, which means the beginning of spring.
Last year brought many changes for my family, changes that are forcing me to make a few of my own to adapt. With a new home, a job outside of the home, and all of the activities the kids participate in, it’s often been difficult for me to find the time (not to mention the motivation) to really GET creative, make beautiful things, and fill orders.
With these changes and lack of inspiration, I have decided to tone things down a bit with my sales. The option to order online will soon be GONE. My Facebook fan page will remain where it is and I will continue to use it to show off my new wares. I’m not going to just disappear! I hope you won’t disappear on me.
I will now focus on building stock for local craft events, learning new patterns and techniques (and writing my own to share with you), and really just getting back to LOVING making things (and giving things away!).
I have high hopes of revisiting internet sales at a later time. Thank you SO much for the last three years of online sales and support! It means the world to me!
September is an awesome month, for many reasons! The leaves are beginning to change here in northern Illinois, apple orchards are in full swing, it’s my business anniversary (3 years!), my birthday, and I’m finally moving at the end of the month!
To celebrate all of these things, I’d like to give something away to some fans! I have a lot on my plate right now (working a new part-time job, organizing a local craft event, and raising three kids) and half of my house is packed in cardboard at the moment, so I’m sorry it’s not a HUGE gift. I already have something in mind for next time though :)
