Peeking Out

So sorry for the long delay between postings.
For those who don't know I'm due in August with our first baby!  Which means A LOT has been going on over in my neck of the woods.  I do have pictures to upload of the basement remodel progress as well as some other odds and ends of quilting projects :)
But as you can imagine blogging has been the last thing on my mind as we prepare for our new arrival in the next month and a half!

I can assure you though once we get my new sewing room done and things moved down there I will try my hardest to post picture of the nursery and all the other little things I've been meaning to do for a while.

Till then my Etsy shop will be on maternity leave from now until November 1st.  I'm seriously considering the fact that this may be my last season for personalized ornaments.  Mostly because I believe I've reached the peak of what I can physically produce and earn from my shop thru custom orders.  In other words even if I add new ornaments to the shop there are only so many hours in the day in which I can take and produce personalized ornaments.  Not to mention I am unable to wholesale my ornaments due to their being custom and personalized and it makes it nearly impossible to do any local craft shows.  So there could be some big changes happening with the shop as well.

There are also inklings of other shop ideas, ideas that involve more use of my sewing machine which I'm feeling more excited about each day.  Still doing the research and gauging the potential before I take the leap.  If it works out I may move away from the seasonal ornament business altogether.

As I've said before knowing when to let go and get out while you're ahead is the best business advice I've allowed myself to follow.
