Guess What...

Wanna know something exciting?... Monday is my last day at Starbucks. Yep, that's right!
So, what's next for me, you might wonder? Well, let me tell you. I am going to be working out of my home running my shop full time!

I couldn't be more excited! This is my dream and I can't believe it's actually happening. I'm crunched for time at the moment, but was really excited to share with you. I've been wanting to share all week.
I did an interview with Leigh-Ann over at Freckled Nest about my adventure. Check her blog today or tomorrow to read the details. Also, Leigh-Ann is helping teach Indie Business again. I took it last year. That class a long with Kari Chapin's Book were the two most informative and helpful guides to jump start this adventure. If you are curious about running your own handmade business and don't know where to start, I HIGHLY recommend Indie Business. It was informative, practical, and SO much fun! It's also great for those of you who already have a handmade business going.

There are many tgreat things coming your way from The Dainty Woods this year. One of the things on the list is more giveaways! I thought you'd like that. I'm starting with this necklace. I'm giving it away on Freckled Nest. Visit to enter the giveaway :)
Hope you have a happy Wednesday.

[Random question. Did any of you watch Whinney The Pooh as a kid? 'Whinney The Pooh and The Blustery Day' was my favorite one. I always think of when they say happy Wednesday to each other. It's really windy that day so they say "windsday".."Happy Windsday Roo". I still watch that movie when I'm sick ;) ]

  3. Woo hoo! That's such great news Chelsea. I can't wait to see the beauties arriving in your shop. Big hug and kiss all the way from Georgia! XOXO
