Galilee was in her footy pajamas, I was wearing sweat pants (something I haven't done since being pregnant) and ABBA was playing as I stood in the grocery store aisle looking for peanut butter. Leaving the apartment at 10 am in our pajamas didn't seem like a bad idea until I was actually at the store. Then I prayed I wouldn't run into anyone.
I've had a lot of sewing to do. I'm so grateful to pay the bills doing something I love. It does seem that there is a point where something you love can turn into something to fear. Too much of a good thing at once? Seems a trend with my business. It's weird. One day I'm hoping to hear that wonderful cha ching sound my etsy app makes and then another day I'm completely overwhelmed with work.
I hate the turn around time that accompanies my work. As a fellow consumer, I don't know if I'd want to wait that long. Even if the dress is handmade, unique, amazing, affordable, made with love by someone who cares (I'm being a goon now). I get stressed out for you and me.
As of this afternoon I'm putting the ol' etsy shop on vacation mode. Isn't that a cute term, btw. It sounds like I'm doing something... different. While in this mode I'll still receive convos and I'll be filling current orders. I have begun a ready made collection and I will talk more about that in the future as I look to move in that direction. It will probably mean I wont be offering customization but it will also mean a dress will ship within 48 hours. Cool, right?
Tomorrow is Monday! I'll start cracking bright and early as usual and you know what? I do look forward to it. Here's hoping everything will work out better than okay. <3
