With that, September will be a "test" month for me. This break allowed me to realize the true amount of work it takes to keep the shop running. I feel as though perhaps it's taking me away a little too much from my family. The kids are still young and these years will be gone before I know it, I really feel that I need to cherish these next few years.
I've mentioned this before, I believe it was at the beginning of the year, so it's definitely been something that I've been contemplating for a while now. Sooo, we'll see how things go in September and I will make a decision as to what to do then. Be it keeping the shop open, going for a temporary closure at the end of the month, only listing items periodically or perhaps I'll only have a small selection of items and will re-list as they sell.
I'm having a tough time finding the right balance....
If I do decide to close the shop temporarily, I plan to continue to sew and to continue to sketch out designs because this is truly something that I absolutely love to do. I will just have to wait until I have a little more time to put towards the shop.
I have so much admiration and respect for those who take care of their little ones while running a successful business, it's more than a lot of work, I bow to you!
If you were wondering, I do plan to continue blogging if the shop does end up closing next month....
