I just wanted to send out a quick storefront update to everyone. This process is taking much longer than I anticipated or expected. But I will be much better prepared for that to happen the next time I need to do something like this.
It has been about 4 weeks since the initial retail offering went out to the shopping center management team. Each week since then they have asked for something else from me. More details, more business financials, more statistics, more personal financials, etc. I have given them everything but rights to my first-born child!
I know that I didn’t have to jump through this many hoops to buy my house, or my car, or even to start my business. But I am practicing my patience waiting for them to make their decision. I know it will all work out the way it is meant to.
In the meantime, I feel like I am in limbo-land, which I don’t much like. The plans I make are going to be different when I am in a store-front as opposed to working out of my home. I am embracing the challenges that go along with this process. Because life is all about learning from our challenges.
I look forward to sharing the details with you as soon as I know anything concrete.
For now, I am still open for business. I still have classes that are being held in my studio and would love it if you were able to join me to explore your creativity more closely. I still have the monthly ATC challenge for you to participate in. I also still have the website available for your on-line shopping convenience. I am also still available for shopping in my home – either by appointment (719-648-6611) or during the Open Studios sessions each month. The August dates for Open Studios are Aug 30th & Aug 31st from 1-4 pm (no appt necessary).
I’ll keep you posted.
