Did I do a good job distracting you with an awesome giveaway on Tuesday? Did I make you forget with the adorable craft project on Wednesday? A little over a week ago I wrote a post vowing to do what ever it took to see that my little Etsy shop would open...last Tuesday. I have failed to make that happen, my apologies. But, I'm not going to beat myself up over it. Things happen like I didn't see the light of day on Saturday as I was sick in bed, Monday was Columbus Day and you know I was not going to waste my kiddo's day off from school (we had a blast down by the river) taking pictures of jewelry, and then there's the Fall Family Fair this weekend where I committed to making an entire bakery's-worth of homemade cakes and cookies (I want to make a good impression at our new school so I may have gone a bit overboard).
Yes, I know what you're thinking because I'm thinking the same thing: excuses, excuses, excuses. Well, I'm old enough to have learned that I'm only delaying success, postponing good results. The best is waiting for me and that's my motivation for fulfilling my promise. But I'm not SuperWoman, and I'm not going to make myself sick over trying to be one. What I am, however, is a person who puts her best out there and I want to get the photographs as good as I can for the Etsy shop to really show the jewelry's quality and beauty. That I will not compromise on, no matter what the deadline.
So, kind readers, I humbly ask for an extension for my shop opening. I think we've all been there, delayed fulfillment of a promise, in some capacity or another so I know you'll understand. I won't make any promises now because making excuses takes just as much work but you will be the first to know when the shop finally opens its virtual doors!
