Well here's my resolution for the year-- we it's more of a decision hubby and I made.

I haven't worked but one month this uhhh last year. When I got laid off and then screwed I got really depressed.
But I'm coming out of it.

Well I've figured I'm not really able to work for anyone yet. But ten years ago I had a good business doing alterations and repairs.
I ended up closing it down to help a friend develop a business. (mistake)

At the time we rented a house that had a separate small building and I renovated that worked really well.

But now we own a small mobile home but I think I can make it work. We have small dining area that's been the home of my husband's studio but he hasn't had a recording project for the past year and a half.
So we are moving him out and me in. My industrial sewing machine and serger and desk and another smaller sewing machine will move in.

I bought a couple of 60"X64" venetian blinds for 8.00!!
each and will hang them up to divide the kitchen and living room off.
It will just keep the home parts separate a little. I have a curtain track up now and will put big fabric hanging from it to make a change room and then I have a sewing shop!

I have had a lot of folks ask if I was still sewing for several years 9but I couldn't handle the two jobs at the time). I was the only one in town that replaced broken zippers in every kind of coat going and did the fire departments repairs.

So it's time! My son is here to help with the moving of equipment so as of Jan. 2nd I'll be open.
Don't have a business license yet but everyone in the town office used me for years and the last two never even bugged me about one.
I can coast for a bit until I make enough money to apply for one.
But I'm very excited because it means not having to go out to work for someone else.
I plan on working really hard and get this developed and see no big problems ahead. I've done it before and figure I can rebuild it again.
I also still have my business wholesale account and they will help me out big time. They are a great bunch and I've always brought them little treats and stuff and still bought from them for the past ten years I worked with the other jerk. So I'm in great standing with them.
But I do still have a fair bit of supplies in stock at the moment.
Anyhow it looks I've written a novel here but I just wanted to share. My future is looking very bright again and I'm ready to move on to working my tail off again--but this time for me!
