Last fall I was fortunate enough to begin
a working relationship with Miss Mustard Seed herself.
I shamelessly sent her 2 huge boxes of
items from my Etsy shop.
She had shared on her blog that her business was
growing so fast that she couldn’t keep up.
She had decided to start out-sourcing.
I couldn’t get those boxes in the mail fast enough!
She liked my stuff and placed 2 large (for me) orders.
Some things flew out the door of Lucketts and some things didn’t.
(Mama Mustard Seed got a few of the left-overs.)
Fast forward to today.
Marian has down-sized her space at Lucketts and is writing a book.
No more orders.
So much for my big break…
In reality, it was probably the best thing that could have happened.
It forced me to focus on my Etsy shop.
I had to count on myself, instead of someone else, to make my dreams come true.
As a result, I have discovered things inside my soul that I didn’t know were there.
I have dreams now where there once was an empty nest.
I have filled that empty nest and all those empty hours
with things I love.
Learning new things.
Thank you to any and all of you who have stuck by me
as I have figured this all out.
I’m not saying I have all the answers.
But I feel as though I’m one step closer to
making my dreams come true.
All on my own.
