Vacation Mode on Etsy

Well, I wouldn't necessarily consider it a "vacation" but yes I will be putting my shop in vacation mode starting June 29th.  Why?

Because just this past weekend, my hubby found a house he wants to buy which means we are putting up our house for sale immediately!  There are so many things involved in selling a home: cleaning up the clutter to stage the house for photos, then keeping it that way supposedly until the open house.  Mind you we have 2 dogs and a 10 month old baby boy who just learned to walk.  Every time I try to clean up the clutter, it looks like the clutter is back the next day!  I pray we get through this phase of selling our house quickly.

Fanciful Wish One Year Anniversary / Hand Stamped Necklaces

For the next phase of my jewelry business I am going to simplify the products I make so that I'm not wasting time experimenting too much (with a growing child, it's been a bit difficult to do).

I am also taking a class next week on soldering.  FINALLY.  I've been wanting to do it since my son was born but haven't been able to attend classes.…
