BIG DECISIONS AND TREASURY FEVER!!!

It seems like there’s been a treasury fever going around!!  I have been included in several new treasuries (they are below), and also a blog post (big smile) here by Sandi’s T’s of the EtsyBloggers Team.  Thank you ladies for the includes!!

Also, I have withdrawn from BEST and the EtsyBloggers teams because of the time I am spending on promotional activities. I am sorry to leave, and I appreciate what all my team mates have done on my behalf. Unfortunately, I just do not have the time required to participate in the team activities. If you follow my blog, you know I have been having severe time related issues regarding the shop. I just cannot continue on my present path. I have also decided to seek a part-time job, as the shop is not getting it done for me regarding income. My savings have dwindled to bare minimum, and I must go back to work to build them up again. Everything just keeps getting more and more expensive, and I am trying to live on a pension alone (not old enough for SS yet) and I have a house to support,and property taxes and heating oil to pay for, and health insurance premiums….food, utilities… and the shop is barely supporting itself let alone me.  As much as I loathe the idea, I have no choice other than to find part-time employment and go back to work.  *sigh* This is so hard for me.

Because of that, I will be making changes in the way I run the shop.  It will have to revert back to being a hobby.  I will be slashing prices shortly and selling whatever I can, and cutting way back on other things.  I will also be shipping on a once a week basis now, and not on a daily basis as I have been.  We will see how that goes. If it is still too much for me to handle, and if the shop does not stay in the green I will, sadly, be closing it.  I don’t want to go that route, but I might have to.  Time and sales will tell.

So, that is my BIG news and it’s somewhat dire and rather depressing for me.  I am hoping and keeping my fingers crossed I will not have to close the shop.  

In the meantime, here are those treasuries for you to browse through.  Happy looking  (and hopefully shopping)!!

‘Never Never Never Give Up.’ by ClarkArts

Don’t ever let anything get in your way when you’re trying to express your creativity. Go against the flow, don’t be afraid to be different! No matter how hard it may seem, you will get there. “Everything will be okay in the end. If it is not okay, it is not the end.” I believe in you.
