Baby Name Blocks ~ Amelia

             The Beginning of a New Venture

I've been a bit busy with blocks recently.

Last year, I mentioned to you that I was considering opening an Etsy shop.
I never did.
The time and level of commitment I'm sure it would require ~ on top of my already full-time job and family ~ may possibly take up more hours in a day than the 24 I have to work with.

Despite not opening a shop, I've still been getting orders.

Orders for baby Amelia, baby Clara and baby Finnegan, as well as one I haven't even begun.

I plan to show you pics of each as time allows, but for today, here's baby Amelia's.

Even though I've currently decided against opening an Etsy shop, I have decided to start selling in a different way.

HERE on my blog!!

You'll notice a new Shop link at the top of the page.

I've listed all the info about prices, shipping, etc. there, and I hope it will make the ordering process a little easier than it's been for my previous customers.

My hope is to start small here with the occasional order, and build slowly with no pressure. 

Thanks for letting me ramble on today about this fun new venture I'm working on.

And thanks to those who've already sought me out and purchased blocks. 
You've given me the opportunity to share in just a piece of your newborn joy, and who could ask for more than that!
