Last fall, I attended the Minnesota Blogger Conference. One of the presenters at the conference was Jasmine Brett Stringer, a lifestyle blogger who packed a lot of great content into her presentation. A key takeaway of it for me was about planting seeds—the idea that opportunities are like a seed: you plant it, nourish it, and watch it grow.
The past few months and years, I’ve been planting and nourishing seeds in my both personal and professional life. Many of those seeds are now coming to fruition. It’s an exciting time and each day I’m waking up with a renewed sense of spirit.
Unfortunately, there are only 24 hours in a day. These opportunities require a change in how I spend my time. Thus, I am closing my shop at the end of the month because realistically I can’t do it all. If I’m going to do something, I want to do it well; I don’t believe in doing anything half-ass.
Beginning today, everything in my store is 60% off. If you’ve had your eye on something—get it now. Once it’s gone, it’s gone for good.
Will I come back to designing at some point? Possibly, but it will be a while. The best thing to come out of this experience is the relationships I’ve gained with fellow designers and customers.
From the very bottom of my heart, thank you for being an important part of my journey.
