Grand Opening

Some of you know that I’ve been working quietly for several months in preparation for opening a small side business. This week saw the culmination of those efforts and HappenstanceHandmade is now up and running! It’s still a little small, but it will grow!

I have several goals in opening this shop; the first and foremost being a way to improve my sewing skills, because nothing hones an ability quite like putting it to work. And thinking ahead to the time when Ryan and I decide that what the world really needs is one or two little Burrells to shake things up (still a long ways off, so don’t get too excited!), I want to be prepared for us losing my part of our regular income during the months of my maternity leave, which at my job is unpaid.

I started off with checkbook covers and zipper pouches, because, well, they’re easy to make. I plan to add small jewelry pouches to the product list fairly soon, and I’m considering Matthew‘s suggestion that I sell my “Shoe Fix” as well (let me know in the comments if you think this is something I should add to the shop, or if you have any other suggestions). I want to expand into handbags and clothing as well, but that’s a little further down the road.

So head on over to the shop and take a look around… and if you like what you see, well, you know what to do!
