Urban Chaos to Quiet Country

Having a full time job is tough.. In addition I have another part-to-full time job with my Etsy shop. It has been more so full time lately though. Things seem to be going good! Right when I thought we would be jumping into a new home, and lifestyle (homesteaders).. The seller backed out of the sale (We think- Things were very vague...)! Isn't that just unheard of?! So we are back to square one (we think). I was hoping to get a garden started early in the year, and getting the renovation going! So moving on with our lives.. we have some original ideas from our previous search we may be going with- which is still very exciting. We plan to be moved and in a new place by the end of this year, so things will be moving quickly. I am happy all of you will be part of the urban chaos to quiet country transition. Maybe we can inspire you to do the same? Well that was my update..
Now on to the pondering questions of running a shop. For Christmas I asked for supplies for the shop. Things that I knew I would use every single day. I ended up getting Etsy gift certificates! I purchased a custom business card stamp, and a "Here come the Bride" stamp to help customize my packaging a little bit. I used to throw gift tags in with orders, and it ended up costing quite a little fortune. I stopped.. and wondered what else I could do to add that little something that people would remember when opening their package, and the stamps I got from Paper Sushi are just the perfect addition! I wanted to share them with you, and the little photo shoot I took yesterday. My 'dear' took apart a old weathered pallet, and the grey boards are just beautiful!
