One Year Ago

One year ago today, I walked out of the day job for the very last time, and GypsyFarmGirl became my full time job! 
What an exciting year it has been! 

I had never advertised or talked much locally about the fact I had been running an etsy shop at night and on the weekends, for almost 4 years, so many people were shocked when I made the announcement that this would be my full time job. I had worked at building up my business over time and when the opportunity came, I decided to jump! 

The two sayings have been my inspiration for the year: 

Rope Your Dreams  
What if I fall?
Oh, but my darling, what if you FLY? -e.h. 

Of course, the second quote inspired a pillow and tote bag collection in my shop! 

For the longest time, only Jeff and a couple others personally knew of my shop, because I never dreamed it would be a success. In just a little over a month, my shop will turn 5 years old and today marks one year of full time operation! I've said it before, and I'll say it again, if there's something you are wanting to do, work hard and rope your dreams! 

As always, thank you for supporting my shop and handmade items! You do make a difference in our lives and we so appreciate you allowing us to be a part of your weddings, events, gift giving and decorating your homes. We are looking forward to a great year ahead and can't wait to see where 2016 takes us! 


  1. And you have indeed, Flown!!
    Merry Christmas sweet friend!

  2. You've done really well, and I'm very happy for you.
    Merry Christmas!


I appreciate all of your comments and read them all! It makes my day to hear from you!
