This week, the computer and I are bonding. Not so much bonding with the sewing machine, however.
I view my computer as a "necessary" tool. I need it to run my business, to communicate, and honestly to run my life. I mean, really, could you live these days without it? Banking, Facebook, shopping...it's all on there.
The sewing machine is my "fun" tool. :) I'll get back to it eventually.
Despite the necessity and non-glamorous side of the computer, my job this week really is exciting to me.
The Little Shop of Stitches is getting its own Dot.Com website!!!! Wheeeee!!
The designers did a fabulous job with the look of the site. The programmers have done their part to make it "work" like a website. (I am so thankful that wasn't my responsibility!) Now, it's my turn.
I'm doing the tweaking, adding the fabrics/books/patterns, uploading the photos. You know, the FUN part!
The Little Shop will still be on Etsy! I believe in Etsy and what it stands for - handmade items and quality supplies to make them. Additionally, there is a sense of community found on Etsy that is unlike any other.
Starting this new Dot.com website feels a bit like buying my first house. It's mine, it's all mine! Where will I put this? Where will that fit? What can I add to make it beautiful and personalized?
I do not yet know exactly when the site will go live, but I sincerely hope you stay with me for the journey!
