Well, just now, I looked over at the sidebar for my blog topics and I am noticing that the "My day, Friday" posts are all neatly lined up and in order.
"What's an Esty?"
Yes, I was asked "what's an Etsy" and often.
This was my time of reflection-
(Doesn't the word "reflection" make me sound like I know what I am talking about with deeper meaning or does it sound like a bunch of BS?)
I think probably the second BS option.
I just had so many steps to take to step away from the Baby biz and needed to be certain and make sure that was what I wanted.
It started with looking for and trying to shop for pillows that I couldn't find in the stores for myself-my own taste.
I needed more than that, too.
1. There is connection to the designer/seller.
3. Items that are handmade are perfectly imperfect, too. I love that. That's the charm~
There is just something so magical about buying handmade.
Handmade gifts have always been my favorite even when I was a child.
So after the Christmas season settles down and life gets back to "normal" I will be calmly working out in my studio at a calm pace, taking my time to build up my pillow inventory, and I will be back to blogging and reading the blogs I follow more than once a week.
My goal for 2012 is exactly what I mentioned above.
It's going to be my year to prepare and grow the business.
It's been a long sabbatical and it's time to get Bundles of Blossoms back on track for the long haul.
Bundles of Blossoms is such a huge part of who I am, but sometimes, as in life, it's just time to change things up a bit.
This past 2011 year has been kind of like my business has been sprinting kind of like runners do-super fast and at the end the runner is winded and can't catch her breath, but loves the exhilaration!
So 2012 is going to be training for long distance run. It's kind of a slow steady pace while still being able to carry on a great conversation, yet, knowing that there are many more miles ahead.
