I had a wonderful, fun trip back to my hometown, Port Angeles, last week. I was able to spend time with family and friends that I don't see often enough. It also served as a much needed break from work. Don't get me wrong - I love that I get to sew and design for a living. But once in a while, my brain needs a rest. And girl time!
I could have put my online shop in 'Vacation Mode', where it's closed to new orders. But I chose not to, as I always want my products to be available to my customers. The consequence of that is that orders get a little backed up for the 4 days that I was gone.
I'm getting caught up this week. Cutting, sewing, wrapping and packaging orders.
It feels great to be back in the shop, crossing off my long list of orders, and shipping them out to customers!
Sometimes a break from the normal routine is a great way to get motivated and creative!
