My First Pick

The next week is going to be busy for me around here. My etsy shop continues to grow and after yesterday (story to come), I'm getting more and more confident about it!

The upcoming week is going to involve a lot of preparing items for photos, photo shoots, researching, and listing my items. This is all leading up to a giveaway I'm sponsoring on Fussy Monkey Business soon. (More on that later.)
I don't want to put it off too long because I want to ride this momentum that's been created.
And that means a busy week ahead, so I apologize if my upcoming blogs are brief.

Yesterday I had the privilege to "pick" the garage of a local couple that is selling their house and moving into an RV for a retirement of travel. Mr. John is a retired scientist and woodworker, Mrs. Joyce was laughing at my "finds" the whole time.

I had to make a run to a grocery store for more bribery cereal (the kids were in the car with the windows down during the pick -- I was in the garage nearby) and more money, but it was worth it.

You can't see it now, but in that trunk is the future of my shop. :)
