As promised at the beginning of the year I am going to try to share a little more about what is going on here. So here it goes……. As we made our blog game plan for the year I kept coming back to my signs. My signs have been keeping me so busy at times I don’t feel like I can do anything else. Our first thought was to scale back on signs and go more of the blog route….posting tutorials, working with brands, etc. And then this last month our signs went crazy. We found ourselves with a problem. I hate to talk about this problem because I feel like it is one of those “my diamond shoes are too tight” problems. I am feeling torn because part of me wants to blog, after all that is why I started making and selling signs so I could have the funds to do those things. On the other hand I hate to turn down the chance to make and sell signs. I wish I could do everything, but I am feeling like, blogging, making signs and trying to be a stay at home mom with 3 little kids is proving to be an impossible task. I am not a flaky person but I feel like I am being that way lately because I am taking on too much. I say I am going to do something and it is late or doesn’t happen and if I do finish something I feel like it is only done half way. As you can tell this decision was not made lightly, because not only do I want to do what is right for my family I also want to appeal to my readers and followers. After weighing pros and cons….I may have made a list….. I realized I need to make our signs the priority. So what does that mean to you as a reader? I will be posting more about my signs and scaling back a little on tutorials and projects…but that does not mean I am going to stop doing tutorials and home improvements all together. I still have plenty of projects up my shelves this year…like….finishing our pantry, our master bathroom, our fireplace, our half bath, and I am changing up our living room……LOTS to come in that department. They will probably just be a little more spread out. As we will be working to create new signs …. (you can view my Etsy shop here)
As for my signs we are adding a neutral color palette with grays, whites and of course chippy goodness.
We will continue to make our turquoise and blue signs. We are adding in a navy and other shades of blue as well. But instead of listing 5 to 10 new signs every Wednesday we will be doing much larger ETSY restocks twice a month. Our next restock is Wednesday Feb 1st at 7pm MST. We will also be at the Vintage White’s market in Salt Lake City on March 3rd and 4th!
We will also be adding new sizes to our existing words….at our restock you will be able to purchase this home is 18″ lengths and 23″ lengths
and we are adding a few new words like welcome! I combined our welcome cutout and our new larger home cutout to our entry way! We also have a few sayings to come in the next month or so!
Lastly I want to say thank you to all of you for reading, following and purchasing my signs. I never thought I would be here today this truly is a dream come true and it makes all the hard work and sleepless nights worth it!!
