Excitement on the Rustic Internet!!!

Today, July 14, 2014, (a Monday if you can believe it) is a VERY EXCITING INTERNET DAY for my Rustic sites!

To Start with early this morning I updated a few things on our blog!  Now, our Rustic Square Store is right there!


No more looking all over the internet for your Rustic Fix!  Now, it's all in one handy place!  Which means Facebook, Subscribers, Pinterest, etc. has all moved to the Right!


But that's not all!!! (I know I sound a bit like a Game Show Host but in my defense ~ I am incredibly happy!)

Today, North Country Rustics hit a new Facebook Milestone ~ 1000 Likes!

I keep pinching myself.  How did this happen?  How did 1000+ people find out about me and my creations? Who knew that there would even be 1000 people in the world who think that carvings, paintings, and screen doors were worth liking!  It may not be a Miracle ~ But it certainly feels like one to me!

I was just a Mom who felt very overwhelmed by my daughter's Epilepsy diagnosis and a little lost with no direction to my life when I found carving.  I instantly found my creative calling and it has provided hours of therapy, escape, and enjoyment to my life.  My Rustic Hubby thought I was a little nutty when I impulsively decided to take my hobby and start my own business.  But in the 1,146 days since then I have loved learning about business, about friendship, and about my own strengths and weaknesses. I saw a quote this morning that seemed amazingly fitting ~ "Life isn't about finding yourself.  Life is about CREATING yourself."  I know now that I've created more than just Screen Doors and Carvings ~ I've Created ME!  I didn't just follow my dream... I found it and chased it down.  I work every day for hours on the computer, more hours in the workshop and someday ~ I will figure out how to be organized at it all.  Today, might not be that day ~ But it is still one freaking awesome day!

Roller Coaster of Life!

I feel like the past two months have been a roller coaster ride that just doesn't end!  So many amazing moments squeezed in between so many disheartening moments.  Medical Issues continue to plague my household with hospital trips, ER visits and a myriad of new worries to accompany all the old ones!  However, I've been working and am hopeful that I can share these new creations with you soon. Until then can I share this month's newsletter with you?
