so, i am moving in two days. i don't know why, but all the big moves in my "business" world are inspired JUST before big moves in my other life. like... i got my tax id and made my first big fabric order the week i moved here. and now, i opened up "shop" within the month i am moving! never fear... pink hydrangea shop is not going far... just pausing for a few weeks. i am packing up my sewing stuff and moving it in with the 'rents for the summer. then, my fabric, kids and i will move to our tropical island destination!! so, think, plan and dream about what you want to order. you can even go ahead and order it. but i won't be shipping until may 25th. (plus, now is as good a time as any to pause the business... WAIT FOR IT... cause i won't be idle in my time. i am planning BIG THINGS for when i am back!)
welcome to pink hydrangea. this is my passion... sewing and creating! it started as a hobby and moved to outfitting myself and my family. if you see something you like and are interested, email me at email@example.com or visit my store.

balancing books... i finally did my taxes and have (i think)
figured out how i want to do my books...
turning out a bunch of handles for the "pink hydrangea" bags...
i did these one night while the hubs and i watched some good old tv!
a new yoga bag... about to go into the shop...
i opened the shop just over a week ago. i have made ONE sale! (i am pretty excited about that one!!) in the midst of preparing to move in three weeks, be in transition for two months, then finish a move to the other side of the world (or so it feels), i haven't wanted to be too overwhelmed with orders. this pace has been good. i also have had one more custom order (that might turn into a shop stock) that was done locally. i am going to take some pics of it and can't wait to show you! for now, i am packing, purging, and preparing to move!! (meanwhile, sewing away... does it surprise you that my sewing "stuff" is the first bag i will make sure i can fit? clothes can come later...)

okay, so i opened the shop today. there are currently a few things in there. they can be customized in a variety of ways. different fabrics. monograms. anything else you can dream of, i am willing to consider. this is what i am starting with! so, there is a link in the right hand sidebar. check me out! buy something. share me on fb/twitter... enjoy it...

getting things up and running... like organizing my finances!
(boring, i know... but it feels so much better now!)
and some new bags... here are the handles that i turned right side out during a game of scrabble with the hubs. he takes a long time with his moves. these are for nine new bags to go in the shop... hopefully next week!
i am working on getting things up and running... and preparing to move to the other side of the world! (at least, close to it...) i have some new things i am trying out, too... so stay tuned!
