Hi, all! This is just a quickie to let you know that I am taking a vacation from Facebook but will still be posting on WordPress. Please stay in touch.
The studio is almost up and running. The sinks are installed and I have some nice restaurant mats to stand on and a kerosene heater to warm up the space. I am slowly plugging away on a business plan and all the paperwork stuff that makes being an official business such a pain before I can start begging people to give me money to work with via grants. First I have to convince them that there is more to me than retro, crazy hippie, tie-dye stuff. I eventually want to branch out into hand-dyeing knitting yarn, too. I have pages of notes concerning my “creative visions” and am closer to becoming able to make them real. Thanks for all of your support and encouragement as I grind it out.
So far the most difficult part, besides all the numbers stuff (how in the heck do I know how much my business is going to expand next year???? I am just starting out!),is coming up with a mission statement. Does making unique, comfortable, fun clothing for all shapes and sizes sound too ambitious? I am not exactly sure what the guys in the suits want to hear. If anyone has ideas, please toss them my way.
In the meantime, beloveds, keep flying your flags!!
