this feels really good. this is my last post i’ll be writing before shutting my shop down. i will be done writing the awkward “buy my stuff!” posts! i can’t express how hard those posts are for me to write, even after all this time! in just over an hour i will be closing down my shop. i still have a handful of items left that i am going to post on instagram tomorrow (thursday) for a quick “instasale”. that will be for just 10 items, unless more sell in the next hour. the sale will be at 2pm, pacific standard time.
this closing down thing has gone so much faster than i could’ve imaged. definitely much faster than i had planned for! i am really grateful for that. and overwhelmed. i’m using that word a lot over this last week and a half!
i hadn’t prepared myself mentally, or my family logistically, for the shop closing down so quickly. every spare minute, i’ve been in the shop pulling orders, wrapping them up, and shipping them off. that was until we ran out of mailers – poop! but thank God they came by the hundreds yesterday so hopefully that will be enough to finish off the last set of orders!
my husband has stepped up at home during this time, and my kids have been troopers – helping out when needed, and tucking themselves to the side when needed (they like to hang out under our shipping tables!). and my friends and employees have really stepped up and helped out in a huge way! once again, i am grateful and overwhelmed. and my house. oh my house! it is pretty much destroyed! when my life is chaotic, i feel much better with a clean house, which i normally could care less about. but this poor house, the playroom/school room/studio especially. want to see some honesty?
there you go! just thrashed. and while i’d love to blame the mess on the kids, so much of it was mine! thankfully, the kids had a break from school for almost a week (thank you presidents!), so while they played i cleaned and organized. i went through every bin and basket and drawer of mine that was work related - thats how i had a second round of supplies for sale! now my desk is clean, my cutting table is clear, and i feel like my mind space is opening up a bit, too – yay!
join me tomorrow on instagram – it should be fun! here are some details:
please please PLEASE make sure your mailing address is correct! thanks and see you tomorrow (thursday)!
