Thankful Day

Here I sit on my computer, while hubby drives us to the beach for our much needed romantic getaway, sans 3 year old. I really need to go to a 12 step program for computer addicts! I promise to log off for good in just a short while. I just really wanted to get this post up before the weekend began so I could say a proper THANK YOU to Holly, of Decor8. Imagine my surprise when she sent me a tweet (you fellow Twitter heads know the speak) with this link.

So I'm sitting here reading my mention on Decor8 to my husband, plus all the wonderful replies readers have posted and he starts laughing. Apparently, he's feeling a little under recognized for his contribution to the success of InkSpot Workshop. It's as well he should, you see it is because of his support that I am able to work a full time job, plus have a side business and in what little free time is leftover, still feel like I'm part of a normal, healthy family.

So many wonderful things are going on in my life right now and I just wanted to stop and list a few things I am truly thankful for...

- Right now, it's wireless Internet Thanks to Verizon

- A wonderful {day} job with a great company, especially in this economy. I'm thankful for a flexible schedule, if I had a regular 9-5 office job I'm just not sure I would be able to swing everything.

- Customers who actually like my products enough to tell their friends, plus come back:) It is because of you I now have the resources to make my dream of my very own website a reality.

- Supportive friends and family members who never thought InkSpot Workshop was a crazy idea. I mean come on, what is Etsy? You already have a great job, why do you need to do this?

- A supportive online community I have found that never seems to run out of ideas, tips and suggestions.

But most of all my biggest thank you goes to my husband and not because he is sitting right next to me as I type this. He has been my #1 supporter from the start and even suggested I do stationery as my "side" business, because he knew how much I loved to create designs. He takes over the care of our son when I am swamped with orders or deadlines (like this entire week) He never makes me feel guilty about how much time I am spending on my "side" business. He even offers to help and sometimes can even cut note cards to the correct size:)
