i thought it might be fun to share some peeks of some RVA website updates we've been working on…. these will be going up later this week as our web developers are hard at work!
This is for the 'Friends of RVA' page… each photo will be a link. it was fun to pick out cute photos of everyone!
and this is for the 'About Us' section….
I'm really excited about this Summer because it's the first time since my shop opened that I don't have lots of other commitments going on (ie. Italy, Craft Weekend, Online class… ect). Don't get me wrong, I love to be overbooked (ha! clearly.) but it's really nice to be here in Springfield with a season ahead of me to devote my energy to making our store more beautiful & adding tons new goods to the website. It's exciting!
People ask me all the time, "How is your store doing?"…. It's a complex question considering that it's
a. probably the scariest economic climate to open a small business in (at least in my lifetime…).
b. the first year… and everything that goes along with that (getting every little detail set up initially is a ton of work… every single thing takes more time that i expect.)
c. my vision & the most challenging and fulfilling thing i've ever done. i am completely in love with this dream to the point where it feels like almost nothing could change that. it works for my personality so well because i really like to be challenged, change creative tasks often and to feel a little bit 'in over my head' every once in a while. :)
Of course, when people ask "How's the store doing?" I usually just say "Good!". ha!
Be back soon. <3 you. elsie
