We Made It!

December 19, 2015

What a fantastic close to the season. Of course, I know that Christmas is still nearly a week away, but in online retail, by this point it is the equivalent of an empty sidewalk.

{If you are late to the game, don’t worry! Today is the last day for standard shipping across the continental US and Western Canada. We also have emailed gift certificates available throughout next week!}

I never quite remember what I share online vs. what I am feeling personally or sharing with friends. I also never know what the perception is, or how any messages are being received. Running a small, family business is challenging, flexible, exciting, and emotionally taxing. It is a great gift, and I never would have dreamed of it! But, I’m also ready for a true break.

I am excited to be taking the holidays “off”; a break from facebook advertising, instagram posting, blogging, and strategizing. A mental break, to devote attention to my family, my personal sanity, and the peace of the season.

Have a very, very Merry Christmas! Thank you all so very much for joining us in this journey to shop good, make meaningful purchases, and connect with other people in the world.

I wish you peace & joy this season, and I will see you in the new year!

I was inspired by a goal that Elise Joy (goal-setter extraordinaire) set for herself for 2020: "Get dressed (in an outfit I feel good in) every day."

In Bangladesh, there are some cultural “rules” about what to wear that is appropriate. This amounts, basically, to covering your curves: two layers over your chest and rear. When I was there for a week, I essentially wore the same thing every day (a long, plain navy, cotton tunic, as well as a scarf). That had its own benefits (the ease of a "uniform"!), but I was also thrilled to come home and wear what I wanted to again.

But, with the freedom to wear whatever I wanted, the question came: what did I want to wear?

Growing Pains

January 24, 2020 1 Comment


One subject I find really interesting is learning some behind-the-scenes of business and marketing. I've written before about how online brands use email subscriptionsdiscounts, and scarcity tactics to sell and grow. Some elements can be manipulative, but overall, I am just fascinated by how all of these hidden intricacies work.

In e-commerce businesses (retail stores that are all online) like mine, it is common to grow for the sake of growing. More sales, more staff, more products… isn’t that the definition of success?
