i'm baaaaaaaaack!

Not that I really went anywhere in the technical sense. It's just been really busy and I've been spending time with my hubby. However, hubby is now gone again on an extended vacation. The sand, the sun...lucky man!

Anywho, I pretty much won't have a life for the foreseeable future. That means I'll have time to blog again and to work on something I'm very excited about! I'm going to start another Etsy store. I really, really miss selling on Etsy. It's not just a place to sell stuff, it's a whole little community. Kind of a lifestyle, even. It was a ton of fun and I felt so accomplished. I just don't have the time to make enough of my tile stuff to keep a store stocked. Each piece takes days, and I just have too much other junk going on right now.

Plus, in the next few years (years, people, years...don't get all know who you are!) we're going to try to have a baby and I want to be able to stay at home with him/her and still bring in some money. So I'm going to begin building a new store. Something that takes a little less time per item than my old one. I am going to turn another one of my obsessions into a business. I'm going to make bath stuff!

I'm more than a little nervous. Failing miserably is never a fun experience. But even if I bomb, at least I'll have a whole bunch of yummy bath stuff in which to drown my sorrows.

I have yet to choose a name. This is will probably be the hardest part of the whole process. If there are any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

And cross your fingers for me cause hubby left the credit card here and I just bought about $250 of various supplies...


  1. Yay!!! I was just privately lamenting your absence from blogdom the other day. Glad you're back! Although sorry it's 'cause you're bach-ing it for a while. Cool about your store idea! Good thinking--something else you love that's more feasible in an income-generating sense. Plus you can spend the rest of your life in the tub and never run out of bombs. I'm sure that will be fun, learning about all that apothecary stuff, and designing your packaging and stuff. Way to think ahead! I'm sure you will come up with a memorable and humorous name. Can't wait to visit your new shop!

  2. I know what you mean by being glad to be back. I have been rather busy myself and being back feels great!

    Good luck with the new store.. I know you will do great!

  3. yup! glad to see you back Michelle! how exciting about the baby....years? well is your hubby away for years..., cause it only takes one time...hahaha have fun with that! 8)
    awaiting your new shop! would luv to help with the name...but i can't remember mine most of the time! hahaha
