Yesterday, before Zack even came home from work, I suggested we have another Gussy meeting. We used to have them regularly, weekly, but these last few months have been so crazy insane that we haven’t kept to our norm. Owning a handmade business has been an incredible gift. I didn’t quite realize just how much of a gift it would be to our family — it’s been almost 3 years now that I walked away from my day job to focus on Gussy Sews. Having Gussy Sews has allowed us to visit with our families for longer periods, travel, move across the country, and most recently take a maternity leave.
One thing we talked about last night is this huge shop update I’m working on. I love love love the excitement of shop updates and handmade biz strategy-ness. Wanna see a sneak peek? ;)
Sometimes, as your own boss, you just have to get crazy with making things happen. There’s so much “behind the scenes” work to these updates and it feels amazing to be working with fabric and sewing ruffles and making plans :) Seriously, I have missed it. It’s taking a lot of intentionality to get back into the swing of it, because the time I have each day to work has changed so much. [Thanks to this little mister…]
Maxwell is my absolute favorite work time companion ;) Even if he’s snoozing in his swing while I work. Or hugging his bunny.
I can’t wait to share the final shop update with you later this week. It’s one of my biggest updates yet, yeow! xo
