Here Goes Everything

Well tonight I come to you, excited, nervous and filled with promise... I am officially announcing the opening of my own Etsy Shop! This is an amazing opportunity for me to be able to showcase and sell the handmade goods that I create here in my home.  I have been dreaming of the day that I would feel confident enough in my work and in my schedule to be able to do this for myself... I cannot begin to describe to you how exhilarating it was to list my items and create this space for myself.  If you are not familiar with the Etsy website, you are in for a huge treat! Different men and women from all corners of the world have an opportunity to sell their handmade goods here...Amazing finds, lovely people... Please take a moment to check out my shop and let me know what you think! I welcome an comments and feedback...

 I know what it means for myself to be able to create... I know the feeling of excitement and pride in giving an item that I worked into fruition from an idea stored away in my mind... I know what it is to put off your own dreams and ambitions to serve and fulfill the dreams and ambitions of your children... I know what it is to loose a piece of yourself in the wonder and joy of a family... 

This is me regaining a bit of that... My dreams and ambitions.  My life;with little ones, and sometimes without...This is me giving myself a huge hug and telling myself, "I knew I could do it, I knew this day would come..." Yippee for me!!!
