I can't really describe to you how looking back on my shop history makes me feel. I feel accomplished, empowered, successful, humbled, and satisfied. I got out of my Etsy shop exactly what I put in, that is, a lot of love and satisfaction from my hard work.

It was a hard decision, choosing whether or not to close up shop. Ultimately, I decided to close because I felt that my shop was taking away more time from my family and from my other interests than I wanted, and I found myself headed down to my sewing room grudgingly when it was time to fill an order. For all these reasons I decided it was time.

I am so grateful for the opportunity that I had to have my own shop for however brief a time it was. Thank you all for your love and support during this period of my life. Maybe someday I'll reopen, but until then, you can find me here on my blog! Thank you all again for your support and to anyone who is thinking of beginning their own little business, I say go for it! You're guaranteed not to make it if you don't try, and you won't regret trying, but you may regret not. Good luck! See you next time!
