Over the last year and several months I have really needed to completely cut back and focus on my personal life. There were just some personal issues going on that I really needed to dedicate 110% of my attention to. At this point I am not comfortable sharing in public forum such as this what was going on but know there were several and all very pressing and important or I would have found a way to manage being present here and at home.
I am looking at starting to eventually make a come back. Talking of vending again at the GVSU Renaissance Faire in October 2017. I know it seems like such a long way out but with how long its been since I was a merchant (last event was Oct 2011!) I feel like I need the year to just make new stock. Tempted to make 100% fresh and list everything else I had on my Etsy shop for a good % off to just clear inventory. I don't know that it would sell though because it is things i have had for years now. But you never know. Who knows maybe a do a give away?
Long term down the road I would love to get back into:
1 - vending at GVSU
2 - re-opening the Etsy store
3- 1/month ustreams
4 - 1/month crafty dragon
5 - 1/month blog posts
But this is going to be a slow weaning in process. Thank you all again for bearing with me through all of this and for such a long time.
Until next time, may you find magic wherever you go.
