my big announcement

shoppe announcement

nope, it is not baby #4.

and we are not moving.  (we'll leave that to my parents.)

and you probably haven't been anxiously awaiting this news (especially on a saturday night), but i think you might like it.  (just don't tell me if you don't, k?)

for the last three years, i have been thinkin' and prayin' about selling some of my handcrafted goods to others.

would anyone actually want to buy these things?  do i have the time for this?  

and oh so many other similar questions ran through my little head.  (well, actually i have an unusually large noggin so i should say not-so-little head.)  but i have decided to put aside those fears and just go for it.  one of my goals for 2010 was to find a way to make this work.  (which i didn't share with y'all, because that would make me tres nervous!)

soooo, this is the long way (chock full of parenthetical tidbits) of announcing the opening of my etsy shoppe!!!

shoppe in the making

starting monday morning, you will be able to purchase a variety of loveliness made by moi.  i am nervous and excited.  i hope you join me back here on monday as i unveil the first listings!

xoxo, annalea
