I've been know to be too ambitious :0)

So, I originally wanted to re-open my Etsy shop AND website on the 20th of August. I've been struggling to get stuff done while caring for our newborn son. It hasn't been easy and as any new mother knows, sometimes we try to be Superwoman and then beat ourselves up when we don't get everything done.

So while sitting on the deck with my husband the other night unleashing my "I've got no time for..." speech on him, I realized that I am probably expecting a little too much of myself giving the fact that the baby is only 4 weeks old. Instead of spending the last 2 weeks trying to do everything - I should have just been learning to take everything in stride and do only what I can and NOT beat myself up when I don't get the whole house cleaned, and dinner on the table at 6pm, and if I don't get all the laundry done in one day - no one but me is going to know.

So the moral of the story is that while doing a little thinking I've made just a few decisions. I'm pushing the opening of the Etsy shop back to sometime towards the end of August/beginning of September and I will not be opening the website again.

Maintaining both a website and the Etsy shop would be WAY more time consuming then just having the Etsy Shop. So, in the very near future, if you visit ShopRachelRene.com you will be forwarded to my Etsy shop at RachelRene.etsy.com

And when I do reopen at least for the first month or two, I will only be selling what I have in stock and made. I will not be doing any custom orders.

I'll be keeping you posted here and on my Facebook page as well - so keep checking back!!!

Thanks for being so understanding!!! I can't wait to get back into the swing of things!
