Bringing a Dream to Fruition












Do you remember the cottage in the backyard? Well, I spent Saturday afternoon turning it into a little shop. Yes, a little shop in the backyard. When I decided to start selling my products an online shop was realistic, and easy, but I had a dream of having a little shop, here, on my land, and this weekend I made it happen.

The cottage needed a good cleaning after not being used all winter, and then I got to work placing product and labeling everything. When it was complete I stood back, satisfied with my efforts, and filled with joy at bringing this little dream into reality.

The shop won't be open to the public, per say, at least not yet. For now it will be open when I am hosting workshops and classes at Life at Nature's Pace. People can come for a workshop, or drop their children off for a workshop, and browse the shop, relax on the futon, maybe enjoy a cup of herbal tea, and fingers crossed, buy something.

It's a little dream come to life, and while I have no idea where it will go, it feels good to bring it to fruition.
