A while back, my goal with this shop was to make enough of an income to supplement my part-time nursing job. Then I somehow got into ordering a ton of quantity of stuff because that's how I justified the pricing of items. That led to working nonstop and a lot of stress. And while I really appreciate the response I got from my shop goods, I was in no way equipped to handle the response. I'm still mainly a one-woman team. Also, our little 1600 sq ft townhome just cannot accommodate the amount of shop items that were piling up as new items arrive and the older items become less popular. Recording my memories were also neglected as my focus shifted to creating fun stuff for others to record their memories. Loved that I was able to do that for others but felt so very guilty that my little girl won't have anything to look back on during this time. So that's my story lately. I already feel a lot more relaxed the last 1.5 months because of the quiet summer months and because people tend to spend more time outside/on vacation and spend less time shopping for scrapbooking goods.
My current goals for the shop is to continue cleaning up this space. Eddie put up these peg boards in early June to hold all the shop goods. Sorry photos are not the greatest - I'm using my iPhone more lately. They make fine smaller prints but just look really grainy on the web.
Eddie decided it was a good idea to take away my work table and replace it with this unit. He obviously wasn't thinking that I just might want to do some scrapbooking now and then. The table has moved back in from time this photo was taken. Haha!
I finally decided to give Project Life a go. My week one was July 1-7! Stay tuned for my pages:) My current problem right now is how to stop taking so many photos.
She is growing up way too fast - enjoying her more and being less hung up on little things. Oh, and Love and Logic Magic helps too. Read that book and have been practicing techniques on her. It's so much calmer in this household now.
So grateful that we have a waterpark near our place. We go here every week with my friend Yol and her boys.
Ever seen one of these? The first time I did, I had to do a second take. She's getting good at it too.
Yep, that's Mylo at the bottom of the photo. He's still around and healthy but Eddie commented that the boy is slowing down. He turned 7 a few months ago. I think he'll have a quite a few more years with us - thanks to the raw food he's on.
Really loving this summer. We got some hot days but it's been mostly nice and tolerable. Kinda feels like we're nearing the end of summer lately. Maybe it'll pick up again in August.
Hope your summer is fun so far!
