What are your dream luci wallis?
I was driving in the center of town in our sweet community and I almost caused a traffic accident.....I slammed the brakes on in the middle of the street. There was no missed stop sign or dog in the road....there was my favorite store front with a FOR RENT sign on it. I proceeded down the street to the post office and then turned around to sit in front of that shop for about 15 minutes. In my first post you will notice I left my retail career of 19 years, while I left the stress and demanding schedule I did not leave my love of retail. My dream for as long as I can remember was to open my own shop. I have wanted to open a shop that would offer a combination of vintage finds , paper products and gift items. I would also have to have room for a big farmhouse table, where workshops and parties could be hosted to produce the most lovely paper creations.
So you ask how in the world does this fit into "what does your blog want to be when it grows up"...... I should probably title my post "what do I want to be when I grow up". While I was sitting in front of that beautiful storefront it dawned on me I was not ready for this yet. The next thought was how can I get there?
So this link party fit perfectly into my mind set...and helped me decide what I want this blog to be. So here we go..... my goal is to rent the store front of my dreams... one of the ways to get there.
Develop my Etsy shop and make it the shop of my dreams...one of the best ways to do that is to grow my blog. I have never put the time into blogging to make it a success.
So my goals....
For my Blog... Post daily, open myself up, put the time in
For Etsy... Add merchandise daily, connect with other etsy sellers and continue to find unique goods.
For my Shop....put a business plan together and make it happen!
I hope to look back at this post in a year while standing in my own shop, wrapping up pretty packages~
