Update! Sorry It's Been So Long!

Hello from Southeastern Connecticut! It's been more than 2 months since I've last posted and I realized that some may be concerned about my disappearance. We're okay!!! We're happy and doing well.

Moving to CT from TX, living in a hotel for a month, and now living in a rental home really is a convenient excuse to take a break from blogging. Especially considering all of our stuff is still in storage including my furniture projects, craft and furniture tools, and my poor computer. Hopefully I'll have everything back soon! We currently have an offer on a house but it's a short sale and it may take a few days, weeks, or months before we hear back from the bank. In the meantime, we're exploring the area and trying to make new friends.

Although I know I'll be able to start working on furniture soon (once we have a house), I'm facing a dilemma. People in CT aren't into the same furniture that sold in Houston, and I'm not sure if I want to continue with the furniture buy-refurbish-resell route. I will still work on furniture for our new home, but I'd like to focus my time on projects or products of a smaller scale. Something I can sell on etsy or in local stores, make in a much shorter time frame, and something I will enjoy doing. It will still be an item that is repurposed or reused, but what will it be? I've thought jewelry, paintings, or paper crafts but none of that seems right for me. My husband has one other idea I'm considering (having to do with a bicycle accessory), but we have to do some research before we move forward any further.

So that's where I'm at right now. I hope everyone is doing well and I'll make a concerted effort to post weekly so you know I'm still here. And of course, I'm always happy to help if anyone has any questions!

Love the Beasts,
