Hi Everyone – wow, long time no post! I’ve been a busy mommy taking care of Ethan who is now 11 weeks old. We couldn’t be happier and are amazed at how fast he is growing! 🙂 A lot has happened these last few months with the arrival of our son, house ‘stuff’ for a lack of a better term, etc. I won’t bore you with the nitty gritty and will get to the point regarding my announcement. With Ethan came a total shift in my priorities; It’s funny how life throws these curve balls at you. With my online store, I’m finding myself spending a lot of time packaging orders and doing store-related tasks during my free time (which I have very little of now).
To keep it short, I’ve decided to go on a temporary hiatus from my online shop, www.QuiltingInTheRain.com. Whew! It feels good getting that out! Next week I will host a promotion to give you all a generous discount code for my shop, in hopes to clear out my inventory. Whatever I don’t sell, I will most likely donate the remainder to some kind of quilting charity, I’m not sure yet which one.
I feel really good about this decision because it will free up my time to do what I love most: first and foremost is spending time with my family and then of course, crafting! My sewing machine has built up a thick layer of dust because I haven’t used it in so long. I’m not sure when I’ll open the shop again, but I’ll do it when the timing feels right.
And YES, i will continue this blog to share my latest crafting creations. I’m off to a slow start, but I’ll get back in the groove once things settle down.
Lastly, I couldn’t post this without a picture of my little Ethan who brings so much sunshine to my life. I don’t need sunshine in Seattle when I’ve got this little dude! Oh, and there’s a quilt in there too! 😉
