I've been working on the legalities for two months, and now my shop has officially opened as a stand alone website and on Etsy.
I'm slowly listing the items I've been making these past few weeks. This has been truly a fun but exhausting time preparing the shop, making the products and the boxes to ship them in (yeah, even the boxes are handmade), getting the county and state documents allowing me to sell, making the website, etc. I've learned so much!
Now I'm looking forward to listing out all the things I have ready, and making even more products to list. I'm really enjoying everything that has to do with the shop, even bookkeeping. (no, really, it's kind of fun)
So, here's to new adventures and starting new phases of our lives!
