Welcome, and thank you for visiting my blog! Since this is my first post, I should probably tell you a little bit about myself.
I am a wife and a SAHM to two young boys. Before full-time Mommy-hood, I worked for 10+ years as a full-time engineer. I still do a little part-time engineering work if/when they have some work for me (all from home! Thank goodness!). But, with the economy slowing down, my part-time work dried up. When this happened late last summer, I was working on a couple of aprons that I was planning to give to my Mom and sisters for Christmas. I remember thinking, “Too bad I can’t sew for a living”. I had thought about this in the past. I have always loved sewing things for myself and my home, but I had never seriously looked into turning it into some sort of a business. That is when I discovered Etsy. What a great concept!
I really wanted to try to open up a shop on Etsy but was really unsure of myself. I just didn’t know if I would be able to do it. My husband and I had a serious discussion about it and he gave me that extra push that I needed to just do it! Since then I have been using every free second I have cutting, pinning, pressing, sewing – you get the idea. And those aprons I had been working on as presents actually ended up being some of my first listings on my shop!
Well, that is enough of an introduction for now. I am not sure if anyone will actually be interested in reading any of my ramblings, but I thought it might be nice to write them down anyway!
