Reno In The Works




Like I sad in the last blog. Chris and I are in the early stages of doing a full reno on our house. I find it kind of funny when I tell people, what we plan on doing. The first thing they say back is: "OMG thats a gut job!"... Ya I know, when I say reno I mean it! I guess they just didn't think it was going to be that big of a job. Anyways our homework the other week, was to take the drawing of what our place looks like now, and go over them with what we want our space to look like. I am super happy with what we came up with. We will be sitting down with our architect next week to flush out the plans a bit more. From there we will be sending this to committee, which is pretty much the city looking over the plans and what they have to say. That process is a 5 min meeting. But once you book your meeting it can be a year long wait for them to look at your plans. This is why we are happy we started working on our house plans this early. Hope to have more news for you soon. I am also vlogging our plans so once our house is done I will post a youtube video! Cool Right?

In other news I had my first big sale on my new Shopify shop! I am so happy about this. I am also working on knitting a infinity scarf I am very new to knitting. I am also working on a project bag for my knitting. I will post those up next week. I hope you will come back for that update!

Talk to you next week!

Blogging Again!



Its been a bit since I have talked about how I am doing. I am feeling like this might be a good time to try and do a blog a week talk about life things/ whats new. As you all know I have been working very hard on my shopify website.

About my shopify. I am working though a how to build your brand/ sales workshop. One of the challenges is building a website outside of Etsy. This is so that you can have more control of your website and also to get more analytics. I have always been of the mind of sending your buyers to one place. So setting up a new shop outside of Etsy, which I have been part of for 9 years, is hard for me. I jumped in with both feet and over the feb. long weekend, I worked the hole weekend to get my new shop up and running. So far I have only had one sale. I say its a start! I'm going to try it for a few months and see how it goes. I'm almost done the challenge workshop so we will see how it goes.

I also started a new job in animation that I had never done before, at the start of the year. I was getting a lot of anxiety and stress, at the start. I felt like I was doing everything wrong. I think this was because my pas job, I was there for 5 years. You just get used to old ways. Where as at my new job I felt like I was tossed into the deep end and didn't know how to swim. Now it has been 2 months and I feel that things are coming together. I'm super happy about that.

In other news: I have my jewelry in a small shop in Toronto called Old's Cool General Store , The Toronto Etsy Street Team I am part of has a gallery space for the next year. Also Chris and I are in the early stages of doing a major reno to our house. More to come on these topics later!

Talk to you all soon.
