Call Me Crazy...

I finally did it - I opened an Etsy shop! Many of you have told me I should start an Etsy store or become a designer. And I am now doing the first of the two things. Probably doesn't seem like a big deal to some, but to me it is the start to a much bigger dream of opening my own store and being and interior designer. And this is a wee small step hopefully towards that dream. Lavish Home is officially open...even though there are only a hand full of items listed!!




You see, I have always loved art and home decor. When I was a kid, I loved school supplies. It was one of my favorite things...new pencils still make me smile. But when it came college time, I didn't pick design as a major. Nope, I picked Emergency Management. It is probably the farthest thing from home decor and decorating. My day job involves planning, safety, and training - no where close to interior designer. So although my job isn't what I dreamed it to be as a kid, I still have that passion inside of me. I think about it all the time.

This blog helps me to share my passion of remodeling and decorating. And maybe the Etsy shop will light a fire under me to become that designer and store owner I've always wanted to be. There are a limited amount of things I can sell on Etsy (homemade), and I've got big ideas in my head. Once I get ideas in my head, I want them to become real. I'm going to work hard towards my dream.

You can call me crazy now. I just poured my heart out to y'all. Thanks for the therapy session.

Yay for you! I opened a *very* small Etsy store just to get my toes wet. I need to work that store much more than I do.....Good luck to you!
