I cannot believe June is already over and 2017 is half way over. This year has been a busy one for me and full of new adventures. But those adventures have been exciting and very rewarding so far. I wanted 2017 to be different and I can already say it is! And I still have 6 more months to go.
My first new adventure was I started my blog. When I started my blog I did not know what I was doing. But I do remember reading that is what a lot of work and everyone that said that was absolutely right! The biggest challenge for me was (and still is) balance my full time job, being a mom and running my blog. I am still working on my schedule and finding the best fit for me but it is all about trial and error. What you think might work one week, may not the next. So still tweaking that every day.
I attended a Blog Workshop this month that was very informative at the stage I was in my blogging. I was able to understand what was being discussed and it made sense and it was information that I needed. Learning a lot about the backend of running a blog was not something I was thinking too much about. But it is something that you need to think about. Had I gone when I first started, or even before starting, my blog I think I would have walked away more overwhelmed and possibly a little discouraged.
Also this year, well really the last few months, I decided I wanted to open an Etsy store. I wanted to have a little shop to call my own where I could be creative and make custom items for other people. I have always enjoyed crafting and never really knew how to showcase that. Well this month I did kind of a soft launch on Etsy and now I think I am ready to announce it to my followers!
So go check out my store here, it is small for now but I will be adding more items in the next month. But if there is something you are looking for and don’t see it please reach out to me know. I would love to be able to make a custom item for you! Or who knows maybe I already have something and it is just not listed yet. I will carry women’s shirts, men’s shirts, kids and baby shirts.
Here are a few things I offered for 4th of July, I know it is almost here/over, and also a few items that have not been added to Etsy just yet. Be on the lookout for those to be listed this weekend to start off July! Giving my readers/followers a little sneak peek at what I will be offering in my shop.
Thanks for looking around my shop, I would love to design something for you! I hope that you will share my shop with your family and friends if they have customized shirt needs in the future.
