The summer just flew by, now its fall already and I have a lot to catch you up on...
First, I failed at finishing my summer Pinterest project list. I'm still working on it and have several more projects and posts to update you all on later. Part of the reason I failed was because I rediscovered the awesomeness of laser cutting and got terribly sidetracked making a new line of wood jewelry and accessories for the shop. I've started featuring a few of the new products in stores including Space Montrose and Cherry Tree Creative as well as Etsy. I'll have everything new up on my new site after we move but more on that later.
Second, we had another beautiful baby boy, Rory, in August. He was a bit earlier then expected but he is happy and healthy. His big brother adores him and we've all adjusted well, including the furry half of the family. You can see some adorable photos of Rory that our friend took at Nichols Pixels Photography on Facebook.
Lastly, we have decided to move back home to Boise, Idaho. With baby #2 finally here we've decided we'd like to be closer to our families. I would like to continue expanding my business and my husband is looking to further his career which is difficult to do without more help and support from family and friends. We leave Texas the first of November before the worst of the winter weather starts in. It is going to be quite a change in weather and scenery that will take some getting used to. As much as I absolutely adore Idaho and the northwest I am not a fan of the cold. Snow, beautiful; cold and wind, brrrrrr! But we are terribly excited even though we will miss Austin and the sunshine dearly. I have made some great life long friends here and have had a blast being a part of Austin Craft Riot.
So, as for my shop, I've cut everything back to a minimum on my website and Etsy. Once we get moved and settled in a couple weeks I will be updating my website with both new and old goodies. I will have three main sections in my shop; screen printed home goods, laser cut jewelry and accessories, and state themed gifts. For the moment I intend to keep a few other fan favorites including bottle cap charm necklaces and game board clocks but as far as their future I'll have to see where they fit into the larger scheme of things. I started a catalog in the spring and will have new line sheets and updated wholesale information up as soon as possible. Any questions, requests or concerns can always be answered at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, you can see more photos of the family, the shop and follow our big move on Instagram @Ilovelostlittlethings or on Tumblr at http://ilovelostlittlethings.tumblr.com.
Time to get packing!
