hello friends
i was waiting until june 1st to have the official grand opening of my perch store through etsy. last monday i opened the store and wanted to make sure i work out any kinks before i really tell everyone about it. well, in the meantime, i had my first sale...and then another! i was soo excited when i saw the message pop up on my phone. i was in the midst of scolding the pups for destroying my bedroom door when this happy little sound came from my phone and changed my mood in a snap!
crazy how that can happen, eh?
anywho. i'm still figuring out the best way to take photos and promote through etsy so bear with me as it will only get better, promise!
i'm really  excited about finding fun crates to add to the store and 
seeing how people use them in there own home. 
can't. wait.

last march i was looking for something to really make a hobby. i love to cook and be creative in the kitchen so i though pampered chef was a natural choice. i joined and met lots of great people through our team. as months went by i felt guilty as i wasn't really contributing much with pampered chef and it wasn't really what i was passionate about. 
in the back of my mind i have always dreamed of doing something creative with our thrift finds. but figuring out the direction i wanted to go took several months. the name of the shop was easy, got my bro to work the logo, and then created the etsy store...last october. i sat on it for a while and really wanted to make sure what i sell there is something i reallly love. 
a love so deep i don't want to sell it because i love it so much type thing. 
so, perch is a compilation of what i love. 
and i hope you do too!
