good news &
bad news

so when someone says to you "i have good news & bad news - which do you want first" you always say "bad news" right? because you always want to follow bad news with good news. or at least that is how i'd prefer it be! so that is how i will deliver today's post. good news & bad news.

bad news first.

i am slightly disheartened to say that, unlike i originally planned and worked very hard towards, thumbprint designs will not be reopening today.

i know. super sad face.

apparently my plans outweighed my ability to get them done. i just really over-extended myself with everything i wanted for my shop. and i finally had to sit down one day and come to terms with myself and the fact that i just cannot do it all at once. i really need to learn how to do things more step-by-step.

but now on to the good news!

yay! super happy face! :D

i will be reopening, come hell or highwater, on february 1 with brand new items that i am really excited about. i have spent a lot of time designing them and a lot of time finding a local business to work with in order to bring them to you.

i am so very excited about them that it literally makes my arms numb just thinking about it! so please bear with me and be patient. i promise it will be worth your wait!!

i also want to take this quick opportunity to say thank you to everyone that has supported me and stood beside me on this little journey. i have been so blessed by all of you and thank God for all that He has given me through this blog and my business.

thank you!! :)


  1. Eeeekkk.. can't wait to see all your new items!! :)

  2. Sorry you didn't meet the goal to reopen your shop today, but come Feb 1 it will be worth it. Can't wait to see what is new!

  3. I. CAN'T. WAIT. to see your new STUFF!! Hurry up, February!

  4. Good for you for figuring out your limits and knowing when to just step back a bit! Can't wait to see what you have going on in your shop in February! :)

    xoxo, ashley

  5. Good for you! It will be so worth when you are confident in what you have to reveal in a couple short weeks. Can't wait :)

  6. Just a little more time to look forward to what you're going to put out there! :) You're doing a great job! Hugs!

  7. this is so exciting! i forgot all about the bad news because the good news is so good! so excited for you!
