Thank you.

Etsy Shop Closed

Well, it came to my attention today that my Etsy account has been deactivated. They say because I solicited for sales off of the website. Understandable.

I am in the process of getting everyone's things packaged up and returned to you.

I will use the email accounts that you all provided me to convo with you in the future.

Thanks again, everyone. And I am sorry that this did not work out for us. And I apologize for not having the best business approach. Again, I am sorry to everyone.

I think that we are going to close. The sales have been horribly bad. I was told from the landlords and other shop owners that the summer was the peak season, and to hold out. Well, the end of summer is in 2 weeks. It would be a different story if we were even bringing in enough to cover the rent (which is sad). We aren't the only ones that have been slow, the whole downtown has been unusually quiet. It picks up on a weekend for the festivals, but everyone is looking to browse and listen to musicians and not actually purchase anything.

We have been trying to find a new location, but everything that we find isn't realistically in our budget. We can't justify spending a whole lot more for rent when we don't know what the increased traffic and sales can warrant. Everything that is in our price range isn't in much better of a location at all.

I will keep everyone informed.

Hanging in There

Sorry for not posting in awhile everyone. I didn't have access to internet for a couple of weeks. Things have been really slow, $200 in sales for all of June isn't too great. I was told that the summer months would be hopping, and I haven't seen it. We are trying to find a new location, but everything is just too expensive when I just don't know what the increased sales would warrant.

I would not feel offended if anyone would want to back out of their contract early. I would much rather you sell them on Etsy and make something, versus them sitting in my store. Just drop me a convo on Etsy, or email me at and let me know if this is something that you would want to do.

Also, if you never received your May's statement, please let me know ASAP. I have had a group from the end of the alphabet that never received their's and their checks have not cleared the bank.

I really think that I am developing anxiety. Partially stress I think. I always feel that I need to do something. I want to do something, but I don't know what. I want to create, but I don't know what. There are plenty of things that I could do, plenty of materials that I have. But I don't know where to start. I always look at a task as being too large. I look at the time that it will take, and don't want to devote that amount of time to it. I really need to break it down. Do 15 to 30 minutes of it. Walk away and if that is still what I want to do, then work on it some more. I have ideas aplenty in my head, but where to start. I procrastinate. I say later, but later never comes. I can't sleep at night, because all of these ideas are spinning around. Argh!

Sister doing well

My sister is doing as good as she can. She has to have a colostomy bag for 3 months, but she thinks that she would rather just have it for the rest of her life. She has to have another surgery in 3 months. Her nurse was very impressed in how well that she did last night.

I finally figured out how to get my photos to download. Here are a few.

Slow starting out

I'm sorry that I haven't been updating my blog much lately. My sister is very ill and has been in a university hospital 1 1/2 hour away. She is scheduled to have surgery on June 12th.

My Grand Opening didn't go as well as planned. It was the Memorial Day weekend, and the weather was quite poor (thunderstorms and tornadoes). I did have great response with the products and the boutique from the people that did stop by. I still have great hopes as we head into festival season.
