I can't believe my self imposed "Maternity Leave" will be up Monday. How did it go by so quickly?
During my time away I got to thinkin' about where I want/need to go with this here "job" I've made for myself. To be honest, sometimes the stress level gets higher than I ever thought it would get and I feel pushed into a corner with no way out. Every feel that way?
Truthfully, I love doing what I do.... selling fabric, making dresses and interacting with fellow Etsy lovers........ it's the life for me. It's just that ....... in order to stay on top in the fabric world I have to go into soooo much debt. It's a bit harder now that it seems that there are so many other sellers of fabric on Etsy now. Last year there were just a few of us and now...... well, there are tons. I'm glad in a way as it gives us all so many more choices of designers and such.
What am I getting at? Well, I've made the decision to not sell fabric any longer. I've been wanting to spend more time on my regular ole "Plumticked"Etsy shop. I've been invited to several wonderful little online shops and just haven't had enough time to designate to joining them and getting my things out there. I've also wanted to take my time making OOAK items and adding embroidery to little dresses and more. So, that's what I'm gonna do!
I've also changed my Plumtickled shop a bit! New and improved thanks to Studio71on Etsy. Let me recommend this talented Etsian to anyone who needs a new banner, business cards, sticker designs or anything really having to do with graphics! She's fantastic and in fact, is the best I've ever worked with. I gave her an idea and POoooF...... it was ready! Here'sa preview of my new look:
I love it and can't wait to get it going!
Ill be working on my fabric shop this next week......... adjusting prices and adding some fabrics that have been needing to be listed. All remaining fabrics will be marked down 30%-50%.......... I'll announce the starting date next week so be sure to check back and also....... spread the word. All of my fabrics are top quality designer fabrics so you can be sure you're buying the very best!
*The sale will only be about a week long*

I'd also like to thank each and everyone of you who has dropped by to say hi to Avonlea. She's the sweetest little baby ever........ she makes those little newborn squeaky noises and nuzzles your neck......... sigh. I've ordered some pink tulle and will be making her, her very own tiny tutu for her birth announcement picture. My tutu tutorial has been quite popular and I'm just thrilled that it's been featured on so many blogs this past year! I've also received so many wonderful photo's of the finished tutu's worn by the cutest little girls ever! I really should set up a flckr thingy for them! Wouldn't that be the most fun to look at?
