Slowly I step, inch, by inch...

A project takes time.  Remember the line in "You've Got Mail" when Tom Hanks says... "I'm in the middle of a project that needs a little tweaking..."  We love that movie.  Though we take our shop's name from our parent's antique shop... we can't help but think of this movie when we say "The Shop Sisters" out loud.  Ha. We digress.  Our work continues to proceed in a very positive direction.  Let's just say... it involves a lot of cutting... scissors have become our friend... though, there have been some nicking accidents! Ha!  So for today... we continue to tweak.

Keep on truckin'

Well we're working on it.  You know it's sooooooo hard to contain your excitement when you start to play.  Whether you make something good or bad, there's always that rush that comes from posting it on ebay or etsy... or zazzle...whatever the outlet, it's a high when you get something up there.  We always admire creators and artists that persevere through thick and thin, never letting a dry spell get them down.  Dry spells are the worst, and we've been in one for too long.  So this week, with sleeves rolled up, we've been participating in creative brainstorming together instead of apart.  Two heads, especially sisterly, are better than one.

In the beginning...

Well, we've stuck a foot out the door... a toe in the water... flapped our wings.  Oh my... here we go!  Shop fronts are done... now we just gotta fill the shelves!  Ruh ro!
