I Just Can't Quit You

Hello? Is anyone still out there?

I sure hope so. I know I said that I was going to quit this blog, but I have felt a little lost since doing so. I feel like I have lost that sense of "community" in the creative world and to be honest, my husband is a little sick of me trying to explain the difference between chiffon and organza. So I need my girls. I need to have that sense of accomplishment back. I need a place to share something that I've done, to make new friends and to have a place where I can express myself.

I have entered in a TERRIFYING world of having a business. I opened up an Etsy shop, which I have wanted to do for years, I have just been too much of a chicken. I'm still uncertain of myself, which is a new feeling and I don't like it, but I feel like being back in "Blogland" will help to ease those fears.
What is this new venture? Well, my shop is called Vintage Vanity, LLC. Go check it out! I would seriously LOVE some feedback on it! So, please share any thoughts you have. I have only had the shop open for a week now, well, I have only had things listed for a week, and I'm trying to keep my chin up. I have had my garters in a local bridal shop for a few months now, which has been fun and I have gotten some interest locally, which makes me happy. I have many, many ideas and new designs so the shop will be changing constantly. I have a Facebook Page set up for it too, so go follow me there too. Vintage Vanity, LLC.

Other than having all my dreams come true (that includes those insecurities that make you have the dream that you show up to school naked) what have I been up to? I have been attempting to organize this house. We decided to hold off on selling for one more year as the market here is brutal. So I will have posts on making SUPER SMALL places more functional.

Another thing I have done since I spoke to you all is I put some pink in my hair. Yup, I am a 27 year old trying to go a little more Rock-Star! Or, trying to get all my "Midlife Crisis" things done before I am that age. However you want to look at it. Here's a picture of it. And I have to add that my hair stylist was upset about me doing it but is now posting lots of fun colors in her "Hair" file on Pinterest. Hmmmm. Coincidence? I think not!
Well, there you have it. I will be around more often. I hope to make this blog into what I want it to be and I am ready to do that now. Plus, I got a big Starbucks gift card for Christmas, so I will be well caffeinated, which also helps.

Anything new with any of you?
