Revisiting, Revamping, Putting Together A Game Plan

Greetings Stuff N Junkies!  It's been a while, how have you been?  Life can get crazy, right?

You know me, I'm hanging in, doing my thing.  I don't think I've found a "rhythm" to life but something drew me back to the computer, so here I am.

It's been almost a year since my last post, so much has happened!  We are finishing up Samie's first year of Kindergarten homeshooling, both girls are excited to be spending lots of the summer poolside at Papa's house while mommy works, my Etsy shop took off like a rocket around September leaving me crashing somewhere in January!  I know other things happened that I just can't think of, but school, work and Stuff N Junk has really been driving the year in top speed for us.

So, what's next?  Well, this year I am working on taking a step back with my business, going over things that I definitely sped past last year and I'm working on how to grow my business, my creativity, my spirit.  I'm learning new things about not just my business, but also my own sewing, my photography skills, and certainly my organization; or lack thereof!

I can't promise that I will post as regularly as I once did, at least not at first, but that will be my goal; to reconnect with all of you Junkies (I think there are ten of you now, Hi Mom!) and not just to push what I'm selling but what I'm actually doing, what I'm learning.

For the rest of this month, I will be learning about all those steps I skipped when setting up my Etsy shop.  Let me tell you, there is tons and tons of information out there, but it can get so overwhelming!  I'm so glad I found some youtube videos of Renae Christine last year!  I actually was searching for creative ways to package my orders (yup, that's totally a thing and blew my mind how detailed some people get!) but I just loved the way she explained things, her quirky personality got me to click the "subscribe" button and I'm so glad I did!  Now I'm following along a webinar series and going back through her earlier youtube videos to hone in on details I never even knew I missed!

As always, if you have tips, tricks, inspiration, feel free to comment or link a blog, video, article that is sewing related!

Talk to you soon Junkies!
