Opening Delay

My original intent was to have my Etsy store launched and open for sales today.  It didn't happen.  Surprisingly though, I'm okay with it.

About 10 days ago I made the decision to push the Grand Opening back to June 1st.  I was sitting at the sewing machine one day fretting over how I was going to get it all done and ready.  I had dresses, skirts, shirts and pants to get sewn; I had pictures to take of all the items; I had listings to write and post on Etsy.  Add to that my day to day housework, laundry, tending to KT, trying to get my garden prepped and planted and the camper put back in order (i.e. curtains and cushion covers sewn).  When I looked at all of the pieces it just felt like too much.  I didn't want to go into my opening being overwhelmed.

 So that's what I've been doing lately -- housework, yardwork, sewing and more sewing.  I'm enjoying it all.

With all you have to do pushing it back makes the most sense. Really opening under less stressful circumstances when you feel like you have put the time into everything that you wanted is the best situation. I am so excited for you!

I'd say that is a pretty good reason for a delay. Good luck with pulling it all together!
