Packing Up My Etsy Things For Now
Though I only began selling online a year ago, I'm in a different season of life now than I was when I started and I've decided to carve out more space for myself and put aside my business venture for a time.
I'm not gonna lie -- it drives the German pride in me crazy not to keep my shop open come hell or high water, but I'm trying to grow in humility and create healthy boundaries for body and mind. That's more important.
When I first opened shop, numerous friends reacted with awe. How in the world do you do all of that sewing when you have three small children??? they wanted to know. "Oh, I make time!" I'd say. But I seem to have lost the time-making-machine. I think it disappeared the day my toddler son learned to move chairs across the kitchen floor and it hasn't turned up since.
Perhaps the new baby and I will sew together come January? Hey, ya never know. In the meantime, you can find me here blogging like usual. The holidays are fast approaching...
