Where do I go from here?

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party this past August

Anyone still out there? If you're reading this...drop me a comment below. Even an emoji! I wouldn't blame you for not sticking with me as there has been an obvious lack of content here in well over a year.

I decided in September to part ways with LuLaRoe. I'm not quite ready to share the full story yet, but in short: I no longer trust the company. I have so much more to say on this, but that is for another day (soon, I promise - maybe even in the next few days). 

So I've left LuLaRoe - though I'm still selling off a few hundred items through other channels outside of Facebook. I've joined another company, Color Street (joined prior to quitting LLR) that I love and is FAR different from LLR. I plan to share more about that soon too. My day job is supposed to end in about 6 weeks, however, we still haven't converted our accounting system over and time is running out. I'm kind of in limbo right now. But assuming the job ends...in 2018, I won't have a job. 

My current plan is to take several months off and get my life back in order since LLR took it over. I want to organize the house. I want to start crafting again. I want to be home with my son. I want to spend some solid time with my family. After that...we'll see. Ideally, I'm looking for something that I can do from home and is flexible. 

Which brings me to...I reopened my Etsy shop today. No new products at the moment, but all of my past digital designs are now back up and available. I hope to add to that soon. I'm going to start getting back into making cards with holiday cards this year. I might work hard on my mom's eBay business and make that my new "job." Color Street provides a small amount of income a month. I'd like to find other creative ways to add to that so that maybe I can continue staying home with Austin throughout his school years. 

I can't wait to update you guys more, and I'm going to get back into blogging several times a week starting right now so I can get myself back into the swing of things! I miss blogging and I miss the community I'd built here. 

Talk to you soon! Very soon! For real this time!
