Yes, it has been a LONG silence. This all began when my bag was left behind at a tram stop in Zurich late one night with my camera inside it. It also had many of my favorite clothes. Sad day. I had hoped it would be found and returned as people in Switzerland are known to pick up lost things and turn them in even when they are valuable but alas, this did not happen. SO here I was with no camera and one thing that is required with a blog like mine is a camera. I thought we would be able to replace it quickly but since we have several projects going on here at the house we had to put it on hold.
I am happy to say that I now have my new camera sitting here next to me waiting for it's memory card to arrive and I will be back to clicking away!
In the meantime, a lot has happened here on my mountain.
I finally discovered my trigger foods that I talked about in my last post and it has been difficult to get used to the change. I am still navigating my way through a different way of life and it's not so easy. I fail a LOT. I know it is very important though that I succeed as it directly impacts my health.I am teaching myself lots of new healthy recipes and hope to talk about a few here and there when I am successful.
We have completed several projects here on the house and several more are ongoing. I plan on showing you what has been accomplished and give you a peek at what we are doing now.
The big thing though that is going on right now is that I am closing my shop, or rather I am putting my shop on a long vacation. The french laws have changed for small business and I have to do some work on my french to be able to take a french business course before I can continue my business. I am taking the break as an opportunity to reassess my business and overhaul it.(and really work hard on my french) I plan on introducing new products in the future and so my shop will be completely different when I reopen it. This will probably not be for a year. So I am having a sale on all my items in my shop. 20% off on everything until the 10th of December.
After that the shop closes and I don't know if I will offer hand dyed fabrics and ribbons in the future. I started dyeing to make fabrics for my own work. Then I started selling my fabrics in my shop. After I started selling my fabrics I found myself reluctant to use them in my work. I would package them up and put them in drawers ready to ship to my customers. When I was working on a project I would never open those drawers. I lost my original intent. I want to make things from my fabrics and ribbons. Once my shop is on vacation those drawers are open to me again and I plan on playing away with all that is left.
I will be working on many new items in the future and I will blog about them so you can see what I am coming up with. I already have a few items done that I will write about soon.
Anyway, sorry for the long absence. I have been here in my heart. Every time I did something I wanted to show it to you but I couldn't. Now finally, once again, I can!
