Day One...I survived!

Ok...very quickly because I am expected to open the store in the next 5 minutes...

THANK YOU so much for all the well wishes, shout outs, blog posts, phone tree calls to all your friends, encouragement about CraftFancy's opening day, it means the world to me and made our first day open a HUGE success!
All the awesome women I met yesterday and blabbed their ears off was so much fun and all the smiley faces made it more obvious that we done good.
After months of getting everything in order you start to wonder...Did we order the right stuff?
Will people like the way it looks?
Are the lights in here hot or is it just me?
(ok, maybe I am the only one that thinks that last one)
And all the compliments and encouragement I heard yesterday made my day.
So again....Thank You!!

Yesterday was my first day of not sitting behind a desk all day and I can honestly say I was wiped out when I got home last night.
This is what it is like not to be sedementary all day, huh?
I'm already kinda missing my days filled with the web, especially my email buddies that used to keep me entertained all day.
And I am already trying to figure out how I will keep up at home but I am sure it will get easier as time passes.
Well...gotta go open a store and do something crafty...ahhh...this is the life!

I just came across your video on Making Memories...which brought me to your other videos on youtube. I linked to your ribbon storage video on my blog. LOVE the idea using the binder ring and safety pins! How exciting to be opening a store. GOOD LUCK!! I will definately keep reading!
