Lookie what came today!

I LOVE them! I love the shape, the colors, the everything. Ever since my printer lab came out with these custom shapes, I want to have everything printed on them. I think they add a little extra to them. And everyone is sure to notice.

Do you love the shape too? All of my printed cards, invitations, and announcements can be printed with these beautiful die cut shapes.

One Happy Chick.

So here's the scoop. I have wanted to run my own Etsy store for, I don't know, like forever (or at least since I discovered the wonderful world of Etsy). But I worked a full time job, and had 2 kids that require massive amounts of attention (also require occasional feeding too). I ran my photography business on the side, and between all that had very. little. time. But I know I love to make things. And I know I love to be with my children. A few nice people have encouraged me to do my own thing. But that's a scary thought to completely rely on myself. I kept talking myself out of it and saying someday I'd get around to it.

Well, I decided it's my someday. I finally put in notice at my job (where I've lived for the past 6 years!). I know that may seem crazy to some, but I figure how am I going to know if it works unless I try it? Right? I've put a lot of thought into this over the past year or so. Some people are born to climb the corporate ladder. To pour their heart and soul into making someone else a truckload of money. That is not for me. At least not anymore. I've spent the last 10 years working for some corporation, and I find myself just doing the same motions everyday. I didn't enjoy what I did. AndI felt like I was wasting myself and my time, not to mention my time with my kids. They're only little once, afterall. I don't want to play the games anymore. I'd rather play games with 2 little people who think I'm the coolest person around.

So here I am, in the last 2 weeks of working in the corporate world. I've finally got the blog up, finally got my Etsy store up, and now I've got to sell and do what I love to do. Make cute things!

And I'd like to thank everyone who said I could do it. Without your words of encouragement, I never would have taken the risk.

Looking forward to seeing what the future holds!
