I'm not sure why I thought developing my own website would be simple.  There's more to it than I imagined, plus I'm changing my business name which requires all sorts of applications, trips to the County Clerk and so fourth.  Truth is, the only thing that I really want to do is play with my girls and make things in the studio once they're in bed for the night; Trying to work while they're awake is futile. 

In the months ahead, I'll be able to dedicate more time to the business-notice I'm not mentioning the name because I don't want anyone to go look at my empty store!  It will be filled with all sorts of lovely little Lilly items soon and you will be the first to know.  You will also be the first to receive promotional deals!  In the mean time my other etsy shops are up and running and that will continue. 

I'll be able to spend more time developing the business in the fall because that's when the twins start Kindergarten.  It was a tough transition when our oldest started school.  She was ready, me...not so much.  The twins on the other hand,  I think we're all starting to feel ready.  Honestly, as much as I love spending the days with them, they're bored and then they start antagonizing each other, which makes me feel like more of a referee than a mom on some days.  It's just time for something more, even though they are in preschool a few days a week now. 

I really admire people who home school, maybe because I'm a little in awe of them.  I just know that if I were to give it a try, it might not go so well (I just deleted "I would suck at it" and tried to put it in more tactful terms, but make no mistake, I meant the latter).  It's horrible to say that, but it's true and recognizing your weaknesses is a strength, right? Let's just go with that.


  1. I hear you. A web based business is a lot of work. I used to have one. The website development alone was a real eye opener, who knew it was so complicated??? Good luck, I can't wait to see your new site!

    My son starts Kindergarten next Fall also. I am not sure I am ready, but I know he is. I could never home school and also admire people who do. I would really suck at it too :)

  2. You are doing a wonderful JOB hang in there, I will be asking for help soon..hee hee.
