I DID IT!!

Well I really did it!! I bought Helen's Hobbies in Torrance, CA. Helen made me an offer I couldn't refuse and, with the urgings of my sweet DH, I did it. And then I promply developed a migraine that lasted a few days. So finally I've crawled out from my fog and it's finally sinking in. OMGosh! I'm going to open a store! And not just a store, a stitching store! This has been my dream forever. I have ALOT to learn. I already know how to run a buisness on the financial side, I am in accounting and I'm an office manager for a successful home builders/interior design company. We have alot to do and plan. I am not keeping the same location due to high rent costs. I'll keep everyone posted on opening day & location. Thank you everyone who gave me encouragement while I was deciding, your comments are so appreiciated. 

And....due to all the excitment in the past few days I was not able to pick names for my PIF! So here's Holly & me picking names. Well, she was looking where the food went because this is her dinner bowl.
Holly only wanted to eat the paper strips so my DS picked the names for me. Thanks Daniel, who was camera shy tonight, but I'll get him LOL . The winners are.....
                                                               Sherry
                                                               Suzanne 
                                                               Farmgirl
                                               (Farmgirl: please send me your email address)                                                                                                                                                                            I will e-mail the winners to let them know and to get snail mail addys.
So in 365 days or less I will send you ladies something stitchy, since I'm going to be super duper busy, I might not have time to create something but I'll make sure it's totally special!!!
                                                    
There's a sneak picture of my DS (Daniel), just the best son anyone could have!
Got him while he was involved playing a video game with his cousin, Rick, who is in the Air Force right now in Utah. It's just great how we can stay close even while away from home.

Congratulations on our new endeavor. I'm so jealous - I always wanted to open my own shop. But I'll just come visit yours - my sister lives near Torrance, so I'll have a place to visit when I get there.
