After much deliberation, I have decided to expand my horizons beyond my Etsy Shop. There's just something about working with my hands that helps me de-stress. 

I have been spending a lot of time working on my books, which I have available on all major online retailers. As much as I love to write, I need to give my brain some downtime too. 

I set myself some goals for 2019, and I am working hard to achieve them. It's hard to believe we are almost five full months into the year already. My publishing goals are on track, as are my NotJustAlpaca goals. 

Starting a dot com website is a big step for me, but I am confident it will help in the long run. I celebrated my fifty-first birthday earlier this month, and decided it's time to go out on a limb and try something new. For those of you who know me from Etsy, you'll see a lot of the same items. Over time, that will change and this new site will have some different items as well. 

I look forward to writing this new chapter in my life (and several new chapters in my upcoming books). I have to admit, I thought I could push my crafts aside to write. But, that's not who I am. I really do benefit from being able to do both. 

I'm excited to have the flexibility my new dot com site has to offer.
