stay tuned!!!

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!)

stay tuned...

stuff i have been doing...

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...

another angle!

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...

what i've been working on...

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!
