I've tried to write this post for weeks.
I can't figure out how to say it in a way that conveys the big-ness for me and for Blonde Chicken Boutique. This is a huge, scary, exciting step, but it's just so hard to express.
So, how about I just say it:
I quit my day job.
June 30th is my last day working in an office, for an employer.
July 1st, I wake up to…Blonde Chicken Boutique!
I'll be a full-time fiber artist, yarnie, fiberista, spinster – whatever we're calling it that week – it'll be my full-time job!
Even though I handed in my resignation a month ago, it still feels crazy and new and exciting!
This will allow me to do SO many new things with BCB, things you've asked me to do and things I've been waiting to do. More craft shows, more in-person lessons, more yarn!
As I transition into this new role, I'll be sharing more and more about the business-side of BCB: what systems I use, how I decided to go full-time, all sorts of stuff! I know only some of you might be interested in that, so instead of bore the blog readers, I'll be writing about it in a little newsletter-y thing. Sign up here if you want to learn more biz-stuff.
Thanks for helping me make all of this possible!
