Boy, a lot has changed for us in the last few months since we vended Tinley. My clientele has shot through the roof, time has managed to escape me, holidays happened, and... now I'm going to be doing this huge move.
BUT YOU JUST MOVED, RACHEL!!!
Yeah, I did. I had just moved into a new house. A beautiful house. I love this house. I've been here less than a year and I'm sad to leave it behind. But life and goals change. Pretty often for some people. I have recently separated from my long-term partner and so was in need of a big change.
That change is gettin' outta this tiny town and finding something cool and exciting!! On top of leaving Coos Bay, I'm also quitting my full-time job and doing this full time. Isn't that fantastic? I get to do art and stickers as a job. This was my goal around this time last year and it's utterly amazing that it's already happened for me. I wasn't expecting that for at least five years, but boy howdy you all have shown me something that I cannot ignore.
Support and undying friendship.
Thank you all for giving me these precious gifts. I owe it all to you.
For the next month or so, though I'll be packing, cleaning, doing garage sales and donating a lot of my stuff. I have less than thirty days to get my butt in gear. A lot of that time is going to be spent visiting with my family, too and so I'm extending my usual 3-5 day turn around time to 1-2 weeks. I also have a huge show in Texas during these 30 days. So just a heads up.
Thank you all again, for making this possible. We'll be settled back in in no time and be back up and running for some fantastic stickery business.
