But pretty soon after it started, it stopped. I don't have to have that conversation in my head anymore. Now I have my own shop.
I love that I get to make whatever I want, how I want, whenever I want, as the inspiration drives me.
I love that I 'know' so many of the little princesses my dresses are going to live with and I love the interactions and stories and feedback and photos I get from their Mamas/Grandmothers/friends who buy them.
I love that I have my own paypal account with my own money in it. As anyone who runs their own business knows, often you don't actually get paid a wage for the work you do. So I feel happy and guilt free spending a little bit here and there on some craft supplies. Some yummy hand dyed yarn, a knitting pattern, a Foxs Lane stamp or a book, I've earned them myself. Yay!
So I guess this is just an enormous thank you to everyone who has bought something from my shop, has commented on something I've made, has been supportive, has suggested something or sent me something that they thought I could use.
Thank you Vicki for the parcel of doilies.
Must be off now. Indi gets home from camp in an hour and I still have to make her bed and make her favourite dinner.
So do you buy online? Do you have your own little shop? How's it going?
Bye for now. X
