And, this building was quite impractical to become a shop. So, it was just a little wish and a dream in the back of my mind and on my heart. So, I opened an etsy shoppe and then some booths. Then last week, Mr. Hughes orchestrated a way for me to get my own shop. So while it doesn't look like the above photo, it does look like this!
excuse the really longish, messy bangs... I have a trim on Tuesday!
If you follow me on facebook, this is a few days old news... I got the keys to my own shoppe!!!!! Can you hear me jumping up and down?!?! We got them on Thursday (my favorite day!) I am so excited! It is sort of sudden, but it couldn't come at a better time. I am taking on more and more custom painting clients and it is getting cold painting in my garage. This space has a large back room/ workspace that I will be able to spread out and work on projects (hopefully keeping our home a bit cleaner *wink*) The Mr. and baby will join me on most days. We are starting out working Thursday- Sunday and we will take it from there. I am thrilled that I will have the best of both worlds... being a mommy and a shoppe owner. In fact, the very first thing I purchased is a large kids table for him to play on and entertain our younger visitors.
In true fashion, we forgot to take photos before the Mr. started ripping out the carpet, so here are some teeny tiny ones from the craigslist listing:
I know, we are terrible! Hopefully, we can get some more photos of the progress. We hope to be open fairly soon... November 19th is the projected date, even if it isn't 100% perfect (or my vision of perfect!)
I want to thank all of my friends... online and offline and my family for believing in me and THIS. Both of my booths will stay open and I will still be blogging, of course. These next few weeks I may be a little absent (minded and otherwise!) It may take me a little bit to get adjusted... time management is something I can become better at... I am pretty easily distracted!
I did finish baby hughes' room for the most part... I am still searching for a good bookshelf. So, I will post photos of that this week. Okay, time to get to work!!
bye for now!
