I can! That's because I am blessed, and let me tell you about my latest blessing. Now I know SOME of you are thinking...did Chris give in and let her have another baby...WELL...no....but this blessing is almost as good...at least to me!
Let me first say...I am truly blessed. I lead a blessed life. Even during the darkest days I know that I am blessed. I know that the Lord is holding me up and most of the time carrying me, when I let Him. But I tend to take those blessings for granted even if I shouldn't. My latest big blessing is the start of this little business.
You see I really felt like the Lord had put this idea in my heart back in December. My friend Briana mentioned it to me out of the blue and I started to really think about it and pray about it. People had told me before that I should sell the stuff that I made, but I just never felt like I was good enough to do it. But I kept being pushed, so I took the plunge after Teacher Appreciation week. And it has gone better than I ever could have imagined that it would. This is due to the blessing of good friends, and the Lord.
I am working to fill about four orders right now. It is so much fun. I love making the stuff, and buying fabric, so this is the perfect little business for me. Tonight I am going to actually open the Etsy store. I will be promoting it tomorrow as soon as I get up and running. Meanwhile, here is the second order that I filled last night. :) I need to get Allison to come and take pictures for me, but you will get the idea.
