Aha! An outlet for my thrift shop addiction.

There’s so much going on right now – it’s pretty great, actually!  I’m busy with school, house rearranging, and starting the Etsy shop.  Additionally, I’m chairing the History Students Association and last night had my very first French Club meeting.  We went out for dinner and drinks this week and I really enjoyed myself.  It’s not often that I go out nor am I adept at making friends, so I was glad to have a reason to socialize with people I may otherwise be too shy to do so with.

So about this Etsy shop.  Oof!  As it happens, cleaning, caring for, and storing a shop’s worth of items takes a lot of time and space.  This realization was the catalyst for our recent home reorganization project.  I decided that we were in dire need of an animal-free room in our place.  I love my furry friends and hate having to limit their access to our home, but animal hair is a constant issue in this apartment.  Thus, to keep items for the shop in pristine and pet hair-free condition, Josh and I have cordoned off one of the rooms for use as a storage area.  It’s currently housing all of our clothes as well as the items to be put on Etsy.  Josh found this clothing rack on Ebay, which is going to make organization infinitely easier.  I think it will eventually become a bit of a getaway spot for me when I need some alone time at home – it’s so clean in that room!

I hope that this Etsy project works at least a little bit.  It’s been progressing like molasses lately because of other commitments, but life should be slowing down a little soon.  If the skies would clear up and give me a little sunshine, I could go out into the woods and take the most lovely photos of all my things!  But until then, alas…
