Well, it's been one year since I came home from the day job and decided I had to do something more creative in my life. Shorely Chic was born around a year ago and what a year it has been!! It has always been my goal to be a designer and be professionally involved in all things interior design and I have certainly dived right in.
Just so you all know this is what goes through my head at all times: where should I be right now? Should I be working in my own boutique? Should I be running an e-commerce store that has all my customer should ever need for his or her beach chic world? Should I be working on my very own product lines and having my prototypes manufactured? Should I be going to school for interior design? Should I be working for an interior designer? AND the list goes on...
The truth is I am still dabbling in each of these ideas and have been pretty close to pulling the trigger on some. Right now, I am working hard on a new e-commerce site and have been collecting inventory from various designers. I am working on a decorating a few different rooms in various homes, I am signed up for a sewing class in September and a Drawings & Presentation class at a local university. I am also working on a few new designs for picture frames and pillow covers with a block printer I met at the NYIGF in August. He is oversees so it has been a bit challenging but I am hoping I love the samples and can order my very own designs to distribute! P.S. I am also working my full-time day job, taking more than my allotted vacation days, and I have a very nice boss to thank for that :)
I know, I am totally all over the place. On this blog, I mostly post beautiful things that inspire me but every once in a while I need to get out what's going on inside of ME and the feedback from all of my readers is so incredibly satisfying and helpful.
Thanks for hearing me out!
a sneak peak at some new designs!!
