Today is Small Business Saturday! I'm thankful for each and every person who supports small businesses, not just today, but ALL year long. A few years ago, I never dreamed this small business would become my full time job.
As we celebrated Thanksgiving this week and look forward to the Christmas season, I have been reflecting on this year. It's been almost a year, that GypsyFarmGirl has been my full time gig. Wow!
I really didn't know what to expect when I left my job at the flower shop. Jeff halfway expected me to have a part time job of some sort, within a few months. I never really knew if I could work from home all the time and like it, but it was a chance I had to take. My motto for the year has been "Rope your Dreams" and it's been a great year and I have to give credit to all those who support small business and shop online. My handmade creations are all over the USA and travelled to several foreign countries! We've even set up a few times with my glamper and got to meet customers locally and I've done some freelance floral design work as well.
My shop has expanded to offer more home decor and gift items this year, as I've had more time to be creative. When I worked a separate full time job, it was all I could do to keep up with wedding orders and I didn't have time to develop the ideas that were constantly running in the back of my mind.
I ramble on with all this to say THANK YOU for allowing me to be creative and supporting my small business and dreams! I have THE BEST CUSTOMERS!
All orders today will receive a free gift with purchase, as a token of my appreciation! I've got Christmas ornaments, gift sacks, or t-shirts that will be added in with your packages! No coupon needed!
Well, you've come a long way girl!ReplyDelete
