Hi buds! So as promised, I’m back to give you guys more details as to what I’ve been up to for the last six months! Yesterday when I updated you guys on what I had been up to for the last few months, I mentioned what I would be talking about today, I teased you guys with a picture that had a ton of Farmhouse inspired signs with sheet music on them! Well folks, the cat’s been out of the bag for a while now but unfortunately I’m a bad friend and forgot to share with you guys!
I have been making and selling these lovelies since November of last year and so it’s been about 5 months since I’ve been on this journey! 5 months? That’s so weird to write! Where has the time gone? It certainly does not feel like it’s been that long! I’ve been making and selling these both locally and shipping them!
Ya’ll who have been with me a little while will remember that I made this one for my house a year ago and that is where the journey began!
Ya’ll, I am a lover of Jesus, a lover of his church and a lover of the works that his church has produced over the centuries and therefore this project was simply born out of things that I love! I’d like to think that I’m merely borrowing the praises of the church of the Lord from over the centuries to put in the form of art to be an encouragement to people!
If you are interested You can actually purchase them on this blog! See the little link that says “store” in the menu above! It’s the last one on the list! Well, you can use it to ask about custom orders or shop one of the staples! There are 3 sizes available!
In the past 5 months, I also opened a little shop in a market place locally where I sell my furniture, these lovely signs, and other things! So if you are ever in the Central VA area, come see us at The White Brick House . It is a beautiful old estate that is filled with talented makers.
It’s all part of making the big dream a reality you guys! It’s funny to think that 10 years ago when I was a senior in high school working out my 10 year plan for the future, I never imagine that I’d be here running a blog! Well, silly Vanessa, of course you didn’t think you’d be running a blog! Could anyone have imagined the phenomenon that has become blog land and social media? Ha! Well, I should say that I never would’ve imagined that I’d be running my own business! But then again, what teenage 10 year plan ever did come to fruition? 🙂
I’ll have to do another blog post about what it’s been like to run my own business for the last 2 1/2 year! For now just know that I am ever so motivated by the quote that “if you don’t spend time making your dream a reality someone else will pay you to make theirs a reality!
And life is too short for that!
