The Fogue Abode: On the Side

On the Side

After this past weekend, with Thanksgiving and what not, I felt like the side dish. 

I was the not so fun looking stack of green beans way in the back.  At least that's how I felt.

So where is this going?  Let me catch you up with The Abode's {BIG SECRET}, have you noticed that new Etsy badge on the side bar over there?  Well, I have teamed up with my mom and we started a side business.

I'm actually so pumped for this adventure, we are creating handmade wooden signs which are now available for purchase through our Etsy shop Bushel and a Peck Signs.  It has been a labor of love which has taken a lot of focus and creativity away from my blog.  But not to worry, I'm still around and still planning projects.  Like I said in this post when I was sorting out my feelings, it's just going to be more sporadic and full of some great projects.  (Like the guest room I'm currently 10 feet into.)


So why am I feeling like soggy green beans next to the delicious cranberry sauce and juicy turkey?  Just the highs and lows of starting a business.  We recently returned from our first vendor event and let's just say expectations were not met.  So I'm just sitting here drowning myself with the gravy boat.

That's life and that's business so I'll dust myself off....
I seriously didn't want you guys wondering where I suddenly vanished too.  It has just been busy around the Abode building this adventure.

So with all that being said, make sure you check out our new Etsy Store.    FOR BEING LOYAL READERS, I'M OFFERING YOU GUYS 30% OFF YOUR PURCHASES NOW THROUGH CHRISTMAS!  Use Code ABODE for your discount.

Leave us feedback and let me know what you think of our signs and watch Etsy this week for new listings.
