Before I get to the heart of this post I just want to sincerely apologize for the extensive months-long silence here on Creature Comforts.
As I mentioned in my next chapter post…I truly had no intention of abandoning this space. After sharing with you the exciting news about my new business I set to work on creating the first collection of goods for Petit Pippin. I knew that it was going to be a lot of work to get my dream off the ground, but I really had no idea just how time-consuming it would become. Then after the grand opening things went bonkers (an amazing but crazy experience)…I was sewing for 12-15 hours every day for well over a month! When I finally found a quick moment to jump over here and let you know why things were so quiet on Creature Comforts I discovered that this site would no longer allow me to access the login page without it crashing my entire computer. I kept trying day after day with no luck, and then was finally crushed when a few weeks later the entire site itself crashed completely. Since I had invested our small savings into getting Petit Pippin open, hiring someone to fix the site was a big stretch. Finally, I was able with the help of my brother-in-law’s good friend, to get the site operational again.
But then anxiety set in! How was I ever going to be able to write this post? Would it even be possible to find the words needed to say goodbye? And then just now, it struck me. I don’t want to say goodbye, and so this doesn’t really have to be a final farewell, right? I mean I’m not vanishing offline entirely. I will still be occupying many of the same spaces that I always have…plus a few new ones! Is is too eager if I admit that I kind of hope that we can keep this adventure going…even if we leave behind this one fond and familiar gathering place? I hope not!
