I had the opportunity to meet with some of my favorite bloggers over the past weekend and it was so fun! (I’ll be blogging more about that when I have more pictures ready).
We talked a bit about shops, websites, our families, life, etc, and it was just what I needed to nudge me to finish up some things that were already in the works.
First off, I’m a .com now. It’s lemonsqueezyhome.com, rather than the “a” before lemon because that was taken. I had purchased the domain alemonsqueezyhome.com for a couple years but I decided to not renew when the time came around once, and now it’s taken. Oh well. It’s not hard to find with a search so I’m not worried about that! The change might take a couple more days to be complete.
Second, I’m not going to be selling on Etsy anymore. I had signed up for Big Cartel a couple weeks ago but didn’t finish setting up shop. I have now, thanks to some discussion with the blogging buddies. The good news is that the prices are really great, and I’m trying to figure out how the prints can be emailed to you immediately. So does anyone know how to do that? I’m having a hard time figuring that out!
In other news regarding my shop, do you remember my pendant necklaces? I’m done selling those, so I have a PDF file for sale that allows you to make and sell your own sewing machine pendants, as long as credit is given to me for the sewing machine design.
Third, my tutorials are finally a bit more organized into categories, though still far from perfectly organized. I hope that helps you maneuver a bit easier! I also added a few that were missing.
And lastly, my words for the year are SIMPLIFY and ENJOY. As you know, I’ve stopped taken sponsors (for now at least while I figure things out with balancing everything in life). It’s been so good for me. I’ve received a couple emails expressing disappointment over my lack of blogging lately, and I appreciate that you enjoy my posts but even more I appreciate the kind responses as I’ve explained my focus on simplifying and enjoying my family more. It’s been great.
