We are super excited to be opening an Etsy shop! I love doing crafts and DIY projects but never thought I’d try to open a shop up. This is an adventure we’ve been praying and talking over for quite some time. Last year I left my job at Nordstrom (more on that later) and have since then tried to find an outlet of things to do during the week. At first I was excited to be able to spend some much needed “me time” but quickly found myself staring at the clock, waiting for Ryan to get home. I am a doer by nature so it’s very hard for me to not work. I do go into an office on Tuesdays near our old home to help out so at least one day a week I’m able to get out of the house.
After a few weeks of no work, I started feeling like my purpose was missing. I didn’t have much a reason to get up in the morning. I didn’t feel needed like I often did in my old job so I knew (and Ryan definitely knew) that our intentions for me not working were good but I have to do something. So I decided to start making some blankets. I thought I would just do it for us to someday use but found that I really enjoy crocheting and could easily make a few and list them to sell. I’ve also had a blast making serving trays and painted mason jar sets so those will also be available. I hope to soon add aprons and eventually, quilts to the shop but for now I’m super excited for this new adventure.
We’re hoping to officially open on Monday!
Here’s a sneak peak…
