Let me begin by saying Happy New Year to you all! I hope you’ve enjoyed a most wonderful holiday season and are ready for the coming year 🙂 Now let me share with you the plot twist that has come into my life…
For the past five years I have worked at a local shop and I have enjoyed it greatly. I’ve met so many wonderful people in my little community. I also went to college for much of that time studying both Business Administration and Graphic Design. In my spare time (ha!), I’ve worked on ThistleGirl Designs. That’s all about to change…
The little shop is going to be closing down the end of January. Because of this, I’ve spent the past month (and will spend the month of January) working extra shifts and more than a little bit of overtime. While I can’t help but feel some sadness at this change, I’ve always been one to embrace these little (and sometimes not so little) plot twists that fall into our laps! But what does this mean for ThistleGirl Designs?
Starting February 1st of 2020, I am going to give myself a chance to work full-time on my graphics. I truly want to see if my years of experience and recently acquired education can be put to good use working entirely for myself! I’m nervous and excited about taking this chance but I feel like it’s time to take the leap. It helps to know that so many of you will be there cheering me on 🙂
And that’s about it! Again, I wish you all the very happiest of new years and hope you’ll stick around to see what’s to come!
