Falling into Place

2013 Jan Chalkboard_edited-1

This is a photo of the chalkboard in our house right now. (Please forgive its imperfections… I am new to this whole chalk thing.) Towards the end of last year I had planned on my first post of 2013 being an announcement about how excited I was to re-open my etsy shop. Here we are almost a full month into the year and I am just now posting!

The truth is, there remains a whole other part of my life that requires some attention at this moment. In an effort to break away from my usual tendency to say yes to everything and assume it will work itself out, I’m doing things differently this year. I’m saying no. I’m focusing on what I can control, and doing what is best for my little family.

hope that all of these things fall into place sooner rather than later, and I can get back to running my little online shop. Until then, I’m working on the fun part of the business that made me want to start this in the first place… the creating. For those of you who have been asking, I am most definitely still here. Still working. Just not through Etsy at the moment.

In the mean time, If there is something that you are interested in, please feel free to contact me via email or facebook. I would LOVE to help you with your event!

A Blog!

For quite some time now I’ve been thinking that I needed to create a blog devoted to Paloma Paper Designs. I love checking out blogs for inspiration when I’m working on a project, and wanted to be able to share some of the things that I am particularly proud of with others who might like them as well. I have just been so intimidated by the thought of creating something that isn’t completely embarrassing that I kept putting it off. While I may have majored in a somewhat computer related business degree in college, HTML is not my thing.

TODAY is the day though!  You’re not going to find anything too fancy (at least not until I am able to hire someone to help me with all of this), so please excuse the “minimalist” look while you’re visiting. The good news is that, despite the lack of flair, you WILL be able to check out some of the latest projects and ideas that I’m working on and hopefully be inspired for something going on in your own life!
