Growing Slowly

I’ve had one of those months. Things aren’t really lining up perfectly at work…sales are a little slower, some systems aren’t as efficient, and I’m most certainly more scattered & unorganized.  Some of my ideas aren’t panning out, and the [...]

Factory South: Shop Displays

Things are slowly settling down since our opening last week of Factory South, our new sister/brother store. It was a whirlwind week for sure, setting up late the night before our soft opening on Wednesday morning.  By the time the doors opened up at 7 a.m., my feet were already [...]

FS Grand Opening Details (& a store sneak peek)

If you would have told me five years ago that I would be a store owner, a blog/book writer, and run an online store, I’m not sure I would have believed you.  If you had told me that writing that blog would lead to all it has, I certainly wouldn’t. After a couple of years [...]

Evolution of the Shop

I remember the summer of 2012 vividly.  I was holding on to dreams and sketching and my mind (that never rests) was in overdrive. I was writing the blog, and I had opened an online store.  I was battling the decision to homeschool Gray, had a kidney surgery, and for whatever reason, [...]

Chapel Market 2014 Displays

The Chapel Market has become this event we at PI look forward to all year.  Fun fact:  I love meeting blog readers, and get to meet so many of you at the market.  I do, however, get nervous and begin to profusely sweat from approximately 11 a.m. on Friday morning til 7 p.m. on [...]

Time has been simply passing so quickly these days in the shop.  We’re working on so many fun projects I can hardly stand it.  Sure, there’s the business to deal with (but I love that part just as much), and there are tedious tasks.  For instance, this week we had to [...]
