drumroll please....

I did it!! I took the leap, feet first, eyes closed & arms outstretched.  I will be pursuing Pleasantly Plump [Knits.] full time now!! This is big for me, it's two years of dreaming, planning & waiting big, it's waking up one morning & realizing nows the time big, it's being scared but finally not enough to deter me big!!!

Today freedom comes in the form of knowing my daily commute will consist of walking across the hall to my studio instead of driving for an hour in traffic, being able to work into the wee hours of the morning without paying for it the next day & knowing I was finally brave enough to try something I've dreamed about for years...

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all my customers who may or may not know that their decision to buy handmade gives handmade artists & crafters like myself the ability to take the huge leap of faith & follow their dreams.  Today is a good day & life is definitely sweet!  Wish me luck!?!
