Finally all moved and a Fresh Start

My goodness what a loooong almost 2 months!

Well we are finally settled in the new house after many unforseen delays in moving in , still some issues with the house being older especially plumbing as we woke one morning to find that we had a sauna for a toilet! We found the hot water and cold waterlines in the house were crossed and caused all sorts of busted pipe problems EEEKKK , but we are working through them and everything should be normal soon . The last of the moving and renovating happened this Saturday, and I still have yet to set up my office the way it needs to be but it is for the most part unpacked and semi -functional . I have so many little doll projects unfinished I am dying to have a moment to sit and work on them . Another reason I have not really set up my office is that I after long hours of debate with my self I am to be closing VMB, so to organize all the bath and body supplies to me right now is not really worth doing.

Yes , I will be closing shop because with a new start you see things differently and with events and health situations in my life right now it has left me with the hard decision that I must stop stressing myself out, spreading myself to thin in every way and really start to spend more time with my family ...that over all is more important to me than anything I am doing right now. What once was a happy hobby has now become a burden of stress and chaos :( So when you lose the heart to do something you must let it go . It is sad because it took 5 years to make my business with blood sweat and tears but then too what a breath of fresh air this will because there is no more made to order , no mad rush for turn around times and no dealing with delays of suppliers , and yes holiday rush!! I will begin to focus my energy and creative thoughts toward my art and dolls so here in the next few weeks will be adding some new projects up for sale on etsy and ebay and finally being able to keep up with fellow bloggers , My Space and eventually FaceBook and Twitter! A lot of change in my life but for the better! Not only for my family but my own sanity and I look forward to more tranquil moments from now on. Like... a full 8 hours sleep instead of 4 or 5, baking, gardening, curling up to long talks on the couch with my hubby, and tea parties in the back yard on a blanket with my little girl before she grows up and tea parties with mom are just a little girl memory.
Here is to New Beginnings!

Sounds like the move was a good thing in your life, even though moving itself is stressful. Letting go of something you worked hard for is difficult, but it sounds like you've really thought it out. Spending more time with your family is a precious gift. So glad your fresh start has you inspired. Hugs...Iva

Sorry to hear the shop is closing I absolutely loved the perfumes... especially the velvet gypsy and witching hour :) but it also sounds like you are making a good decision to move forward in your life in peace. Good luck to you!
