Two years ago the sweetest little love came into my life! My sweet Piper Ella! She is a fireball of a toddler and I am so lucky to have an amazing job where I have stayed home with her since she was born. It has not always been easy trying to run a business and raise a child. Mommy guilt is a part of my everyday life. But the time has come for Piper to start Mothers Day Out Preschool. I know she will love every minute and it will give Mommy a little more time to get some work done! All total it will only be 9 hours out of the week but that will be 9 hours for me to focus completely on Paisley Pear and the occasional trip to the store, ALONE!
The day Piper was born I had my dad take 200 wedding invitations to the post office to mail off to a sweet bride! She never knew I was at the hospital finishing up her wedding. A week after I got out of the hospital I was back at it again with my parents and Brandon helping me put together hundreds more wedding invites! That went on for the first 6 months of Pipers little life. Then one day I realized it wasn’t worth it…as much as I love my job (and the money), my family was my first priority! So for the last 18 months most of my business has come from word of mouth, repeat customers and friends. Don’t get me wrong, I have been in the business for 5 years and that was enough to keep me busy! Over the next few weeks I will be working on putting some of the hundreds of designs that I have on Etsy as well as posting more pictures to Facebook, Instagram and Blog posts showing all the different designs that I now have ready. It is now time to get back started on everything that I love about paper!! And finally more fun wedding designs too!
