[NOTE: I have some fabulous bloggers who have contacted me for giveaways! Be on the look-out for some great goodies and a few chances to win $10 to the shop (which will get you a couple cards or tags of your choice!) and when we open, those bloggers will have coupon codes for you to save 10%!]
There are going to be some wonderful changes going on around The Young Retiree and I can’t wait to unveil the final product! Here is the back story: Yesterday I had the worst headache I have ever had in my life. Hubs brought home some Excedin Migraine, and around 7pm, I popped two of them into my mouth. That’s how I roll, just like the Honey Badger.
I am still awake this morning… from yesterday! EM and Me do not get along, however, it did give me a little spark of genius! As I laid there wide awake I thought of how crafty I used to be. I used to stamp note cards, gift tags, cute little gift boxes, and so much more! I used to draw! I used to be an award-winning artist (true story, in a public art festival with “real” artists: The Stockley Garden Art Show in Ghent [Norfolk, VA], I won the Future Artist Award when I was in High School!) and when I couldn’t sleep I would go to my work space and create amazing things.
Somewhere along the line I stopped creating amazing things. I decided it was time for a change and opening my own shop was the way to go! I have set my shop up (even though I immediately threw it into vacation mode!), ordered my first set of business cards, and am ready to accept Paypal! I am on my way to Michaels today to get some little things, and price some others! I have contacted Nan and she will be sending me some of my supplies so I can hopefully get my shop open by November!
Here is where you come in! I am looking for a few bloggers who would be interested in giving my shop a little shout out via a giveaway on their blog! Each blogger will get a notecard or two, some gift tags (in time for Christmas!), and perhaps a special treat I’m thinking of having in the shop to giveaway to one of your readers! You can set up the giveaway however you would like! Drop me a line: TheYoungRetiree@gmail.com if you are interested in hosting a giveaway for “The Young Retiree, STAMPED!”
