{It's Been a While}

It's been quite a while since our last post & for good reason!  We've had so much going on lately with family stuff & working out some business stuff that I just haven't had time to post here.  I also have a personal blog that I post on quite often but I'm trying to balance the two!

When I started this business venture it was really as a hobby to give me something to do to make a little extra cash for our family & to give me an outlet for my creative side!  I never imagined that it would be anything more than me painting furniture in our laundry room or making frames on our dining room table.

A few days ago I was given the opportunity to be a vendor in an amazing shop in downtown Fayetteville.  I jumped at the chance & now I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to get pieces painted, frames made & I'm working on some special projects too.  I am renting a booth at The Shops at 123 Hay Street.  My space is a 7x12 & I am super excited about staging it.  I open on November 1st which means only 17 days away!  And to top it all off the Holiday Open House is November 16-17th!  Eek!

I am super excited though!  I am actually typing this while a piece dries.  I am working into the wee hours of the morning but I am seriously loving every single minute of it.  God has blessed me in so many ways & I am going to embrace each moment.  God and bad.  I've learned a lot since starting this business & I know I have so much more to learn.  And I'm ready.

First thing first is we are changing our name just a tad.  I guess more like adding to it.  We are now Raised In Cotton Interiors.  We will be offering so much more than just furniture & frames!  We will be sharing all of it as we go & will be even offering some tutorials along the way.

We are leaving on the 25th for a mini vacation to Nashville to see my cousin perform & it couldn't have happened at a better time.  I will definitely need a getaway after all the work we are doing to prepare for the opening.

I am working on a schedule so that I can be a bit more productive as a business woman but also still be an amazing mom to Landry.  It's challenging but I know in the end will be so rewarding.  Well back to work but here's a sneak peek of a few of the pieces we've finished!
