I started to feel like those crazy coupon ladies on "Extreme Couponing", you know, the ones with the basement full of non perishables.... I would sit at my work table and panic as the neat rows started to diminish. The fullness of the shelves made me feel safe, made me feel like I could have my baby, but once the slowness hit me, well, let's just say at 6 days postpartum, I am feeling pressure to go back to work.
And then Etsy freakishly picked up, literally the second that I went into labor. We were up with early labor at 5:00 a.m. updating Etsy announcements and emailing clients. YEP. That happened.
And then the wholesale orders started coming in.
And now, my husband is reporting that my hoard is dwindling to a drastically low level in some categories and is beginning to panic.
Pregnancy and Childbirth have brought with them new priorities and perspectives. I can slow down and still be myself. Life can happen in unexpected ways and will still go on.
