Another day sneaks away
I promise, promise, promise that The Boutique will be open by November 1. I have a few more things that I want to finish making before I go live with it. I also have to write descriptions for all my items and figure out pricing and shipping. I started to think about all the little details and got a bit overwhelmed and panicky. So I made a “to do” list (which always calms me), and I realized I have everything under control.
Then I remembered the three special (non-Etsy) orders I have pending, not to mention all the Christmas presents I want to make, and I started getting overwhelmed and panicky again. Oy. Calm down. You can do this.
I’m convinced Nola thinks she’s helping me by positioning her chubby little self smack dab in the middle of my work table. That’s what I get for putting it in front of the window, I suppose.
My parents are in town visiting my sister and me this weekend, so another potential sewing day floated away today. Don’t get me wrong — I adore my family and love spending time with them. My point is that it’s difficult to open The Boutique because life keeps getting in the way. Hence the panicking.
They’re heading home tomorrow after brunch, so I’ll have all afternoon to sew.
I made a new bag for The Boutique. This is the third bag in this style — which I’m calling the Luna Satchel — that I’ve made, and I love it so much that I want to make one for myself.
I almost kept this one but have decided to make another one after November 1 as a gift to myself for actually opening the damn shop!
It’s lined in a beautiful Asian fabric. I’ve fallen in love with this color combination.
