As some of you know, I started an on-line business from my home when I "retired" from library land in 2010 and it has been slowly growing. I'm getting orders from the website and doing lots of local trade fairs and such. When I first left the library I was quite content to stay in my jammies all day and work from home but after a while I began missing daily contact with people. I was getting restless and wasn't sure what my next move would be. Then came the day when Sue mentioned that the candy store that she shared the building with was closing... and the wheels started turning. After talking things over with Mr. B I decided to turn my little on-line business into an honest to goodness brick and mortar store! Yikes!
Before I knew it, I was writing a cheque for the first months rent and we were in demolition/renovation mode to turn the space into my new store. Of course, we had a few breaks along the way for friends and family visiting from out of town but on the 5th of June, Lilypad Lane Children's Boutique was open for business.
Now that I have the first month under my belt and life is starting to settle into a semblance of a routine, I am back in blogland! I'm hoping to reestablish a regular blogging schedule (and cooking and cleaning schedule at home, fingers crossed), so I hope you stop by and visit once in a while!
