Wow. What a crazy couple of weeks.

I've moved, and had every possible thing go wrong with my move - from the truck breaking down, to having to go shower-less for almost a week, to having a problem with most every utility - most noteably, at&t (no surprise there). I've had my purse stolen. I could hardly walk for 2 days due to carrying so many heavy items during the move (I'm turning in to my mom). I've had some super dramatic events happen at work. And, to top everything off, I was offered a position at Georgetown Market!

Now, I love my could I not? I've been there for 5+ years. I've got great employees, great customers, and I get to be involved in a industry where I learn something new every single day. But the dramatics that have been happening as of late (to be honest, for the past 2 years, it's just gotten way out of control) have made me dread going in to open the store & see what's waiting for me. I made a goal for myself at the beginning of the year to find a new job. I'm positive that my changing jobs with give my store the kick in the ass it needs to shit or get off the pot, so to speak. And I'm sure that this new position at Georgetown will secure my future and ease my stress, while still allowing me to stick around the industry I love and be surrounded by interesting & unique people.

I'm happy.

So now, I'm getting settle in my new place, and getting ready to get settled in my new job (in a month). It's still hard to wrap my head around, but I'm so ready.

First up, Bloomington Handmade Market on Saturday, April 3. I'm working on a collection of pretty cool hex signs (if I may say so) to bring down to the event. I'll have a few other knit & sewn odds and ends as well. See ya there?
