You are invited!!!

Hello there my lovelies!

I hope you are choosing to live a fabulous life today!  I know I am!  Why?  Because I took the big leap! Two actually, it’s been almost a year now but I moved back to Michigan from Florida so I could be closer to my family (with the exception of my kiddo who is out exploring the world) and the other…  Dun, dun, dun, dun!!!  I am proud to introduce my new and improved website with an online shop to boot!  Yay!!!  {Insert a vision of me dancing a jig here, sort of, well…maybe you don’t want to have that vision in your head, lol}

Anyhow, I’ll have you know that I have a completely newfound appreciation for web design and management.  I actually did want to go to college for this but yeah, that just didn’t happen.  But, hey that is totally okay.  I learn best outside of a classroom anyways and with the wonderful tools we have at our disposal these days…  well, let’s just say I owe a huge debt of gratitude to WordPress.org, WooCommerce, YouTube and it’s many YouTubers for such awesome tutorials!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

So what’s in my shop?  You will find lots of ‘one of a kind’ and not so one of a kind hand crocheted items perfect for gift giving or for your own personal collection.  I also have many more things in the works so be sure to check back for those as well.  AND, I do consider custom orders that are up my alley (so to speak).

Now all that said, I was originally planning to launch my shop on Black Friday but I’ve had some complications.  Argh, but it appears I’ve got most of that stuff worked out.  For now.  LOL, as anyone who knows me I always like to improve upon my own self.

I do ask… no, beg for your patience as I work through the technical end of things.  My first website/blog was very simple as all the tricky stuff was handled by wordpress.com and it was mostly a landing page and blog but in order for me to launch an actual affordable shop properly I had to switch to wordpress.org, which doesn’t do all the tricky stuff for you, which is why it’s a more affordable solution.

So, I’ve spent the past year learning how to {in simple terms} make my website do what I want it to do (or mostly what I want it to do, lol), and while I have definitely put a lot of work into making sure my online shop is good to go I’m sure there will be speed bumps in the road that I can’t predict until I go live.  However, I promise, as a handmade business, one of my top goals is to provide excellent customer service.  You know the kind!  That real person, quality touch kind of feeling you get when you step into your favorite local shop, and my hopes are that I will soon make it to your list of favorites too.

I would love to hear from you so please feel free to share in the comments below or privately through the social media you are most comfortable with.  I just ask that you keep this a safe place when posting/replying.

Hugs, TerryO
