Finding time for the learning process and growth...

When you're told having your own business will take up all your time... 


While I've been successfully in business for myself for well over 25 years...
starting over with a new venture can be consuming + exciting!

Even more so when you're a small business
and you are the one who wears
ALL the hats...

designer + painter + buyer + bookkeeper + technical support 
shop keeper + sometimes pick up & delivery (though I'm cutting that one out)

all while trying to keep the home fires burning 
(sometimes not so successfully)

Right now I'm wanting to step it up, widen my audience 
show my furniture pieces online...

that means I now put on the hat of photo stylist!

Questioning where to go me out!

I just finished up this collection of turquoise furniture...
loving the way it turned out and hoping my customers will too!

coffee table with decoupage squares

set of Stanley night stands with faux wood tops

Now the last piece to get to is the 8 drawer dresser in the background.
It's a beautiful cherry, and I'm stuck on what to do with it.

That's the quandary!

I'm Suffering Social Media and Online Presence Frustration!!!

I know I have to do it...
I actually enjoy the creativity involved...

...though the amount of time it takes to do it correctly and effectively 
is hard to find!
