So, if you keep up with us on any of the social media outlets, I'm sure you've seen that we have a LOT going on right now (possibly understatement of the year). Not only are we building a brand new home office to house Fine Thread Art, we also have our first baby on the way, due in just a few short months (August to be exact). I currently work out of our front bedroom that had been converted to my home office but truly needs to be converted into our little girl's nursery, stat!
With that being said, I originally thought I'd take orders until July 1st... but I think 6 weeks before my due date is seriously pushing it (no pun intended), especially considering we have the monumental task of moving everything from one spot to the other as well as getting the baby's room ready for her arrival. So, I'm thinking the cut off time will probably fall around Friday, June 13th. That way, I can have the last couple of weeks of June to get all of my open orders out rather than still having 3 weeks of work ahead of me at the beginning of July. It just makes more sense.
Although I love what I do, the reality of being too tired to do anything when the afternoon comes is really setting in now. It's time to make some real decisions that keep my stress level as far down as possible to also try to keep my blood pressure and overall health in check. I'm so appreciative of all of the support that I've had from customers so far these past 4 years, and I look forward to getting back into the swing of things after my little one is here. Right now, I'm going to say I'll be closed until the fall, at least until October. We'll make the decision to open back up after that time when things settle down and life gets back to a new normal.
I appreciate getting to do what I do each day, and I know that it's a hard-earned privilege. I'm thankful that I'll be able to provide a second income for our family even after baby Adeline joins the family while still being able to stay home with her as she grows. I'm so grateful for all of our loyal customers over the years, and I anticipate seeing you all again in the fall when I come back! Keep in touch in the mean time, and I'll do the same!
