3 gypsy chix


Opened a new etsy store with my daughters Millie and Grace. Bringing our slightly unmatched, wonderfully eclectic, whimsical and beautiful gYPsY cOtTage style to the masses ;)

...well at least to the small portion of the masses that come upon our etsy store or read my blog!

And yes,I dream BIG (and in lovely unmatched patterns colors)...I am determined to once again be a stay at home mom! trying many things, some working better than others ;) But I AM DETERMINED!

So, this is no charity, but by all means, if you like anything I (well we- my 2 chickies and me!) create, or resale/ repurpose, and ya wanna help a chickie out ;) check out my shops (see side bar links), send me custom requests (got a lot of my Lulah Hildebrandt etsy orders that way), link and share my blog/ shops with your friends and blog readers.

I am very grateful to those of you who have already done that, THANK YOU!

And yes I am ramping up the income from home effort! Because of my hubby's health I had to go back to work full time 4 years ago this summer. My oldest is turning 15 this month. He only has a few years left at home, and I want to be here w/ him for as much of that time as I can. Time flies when you are working full time. God has shown me a lot these past 4 years. Sometimes, though I get scared that I won't be able to ever again stay at home w/ my kids. So, yes, I have been feeling that way as of late. And I have decided that fear, worry and $1.00 + tax will get you any size coffee at McDonalds!

So, I will try again and again with all the creative juices I can muster. And I will dream, determine and do! And I will pray, everyday for a Godly attitude, for my hubby's spiritual and physical well being, and my sweet 5 kiddos, who I miss everytime I walk out that door!

Thanks for reading and praying with me.

That turned into quite the self motivational speech ;)

Have a good day...and if your are shopping... shop GyPSy! Thank you!!

How exciting! Congratulations! My two daughters and I (age 17 & 22) are thinking about doing this, mulling over ideas, trying to decide if there is anything we can do together. We're thinking of doing something similar as you are. We have some financial struggles and some physical health issues that are restricting us so I want to look into etsy more.

I will remember you and your family in my prayers. Also, if you ever make a button or logo for your blog and etsy store, please, let me know because I would be more than happy to put them on my blog OR do an exchange with you. Right now I only have my blog button but if the girls and I do get an etsy store I will have a button for that too. If you're interested in this, please, let me know. :-)

Blessing!
