How to start this…. August 25, 2010

So, I’ve never blogged before, but figured since I want to start my own business, that now was a good time to start and get my name out there. Here goes nothing!

I’m Shannon H. a slightly crazy lady. This is obviously true because I have decided to forego a good paying, steady, dependable job to start doing something I love. Well ok, that I love slightly more than what I do now. As it stands right now, I love what I do for a living. I really do. I’m just tired of the horribly long hours and thankless work. So now if I don’t get thanked, its no one’s fault but my own! lol (or my husband’s. lol) 

 So im sure you are thinking “gee what does she do for a living that is so horrible that she would stop doing it?” Good question. This is why im slightly crazy. I am quitting my job as a nurse to pursue something that will probably put me out on the street, in a nice insulated refrigerator box. 🙂

The next question is, “What could she be doing now that is so much better than helping people for a living?” Another good question! (I have such smart readers. 🙂 )  I am starting a business designing and making (as in I sit down and then make everything myself. whew!) home decor items and jewelry. I love crafting things with my hands. I have since I was little. Now is just the right time to start. My husband backs me 100%. which is nice because he really doesn’t have to, seeing how his income alone will now sustain us. I am blessed with a great husband!

So in the next few months, after I build up an inventory, and move (we are in the process of moving. UGH!) I will set up an online store where you can view my items. (and hopefully purchase a few. lol)  So in the meantime, I will just be blogging away about my creations, the joys of moving (cough, cough), and the start of my business, Faded Leaves: Designs by Shannon H. I hope you enjoy it all.

Now im off to go sort through beads and come up with some fabulous designs!

Until next time,

Shannon H.
