Humble Beginnings

Everyone has to start somewhere.  I have been spending the past few months trying to figure out how all this is going to work. I kept going back and forth about Etsy, blog, website, Facebook...and just became completely overwhelmed.  I finally had to just take a step back and realize that this is not Macy's.  I am not some kind of big time seamstress with a stack of orders.  I'm just a girl who likes to sew clothes for my kid and thought others might like for me to one day sew something for their kid too. 

So here I am. With a little bit of confidence in one pocket and some anxiety in the other,  I finally listed 2 things in my Etsy shop.  Again, everyone has to start somewhere, right? I am hoping to be able to add a few items per week to get some inventory and some sales.  I don't have huge expectations right now and I am super excited about just having 2 things available!  There is so much more worked involved in this than I anticipated but I am looking forward to what is to come.  

My plans for this blog are to keep people updated on new listings on Etsy, what I'm working on, possibly some sewing tutorials or fun stuff I've found.  I have met a ton of people in the small world of sewing that I may ask to do some guest posts too.  I want this to be a place for people to not only be able to see my finished projects but to also see the process and some of the mishaps...and there have been some pretty funny ones so far!
