Blogging hiatus and business cards

I've been on a heck of a long blogging hiatus. Mostly for my own sanity. I'm not going to apologize because it was a much needed break. I'm going to pretend that I haven't been swamped with Halloween costumes, new business plans, and setting up my very own "studio" (in home studio that is). I'll let you all think that I've been catching up on my precious readings of Mr. Darcy and his flirtations with one Elizabeth Bennet.  drinking cocoa, and soaking in bubble bath after bubble bath. The former would be much too tedious so we'll pretend the latter.

I am excited about a new business venture that has completely hijacked my brain and all other interests. I'm in the throws of starting up my own alterations and custom sewing business. The idea is to start in my house small, and then eventually (if I enjoy it, build clientele, haven't pulled all my hair out)go store front. It's been a little overwhelming but I've had such an outpouring of love and support from my friends and family that I'm ready to take the plunge.

I'm not entirely sure what it means for my blog. I suppose I'll eventually need an actual website but I'm trying not to kill myself off just yet with all the logistics. One bite at a time is my strategy. Today's bite? Business cards. I've got to get my big bum out of my house and talk to as many people as possible and hopefully spread the word that there's a new alterations specialist in I'm a dork. But really, this is today's goal. Talkin' up the biz. This is probably the hardest most painstaking aspect for me. I don't enjoy the networking and the talking about myself bit. But whatever. Wish me luck dear friends!
