1 - shop name will change
2 - no more made to order listings
3 - kanzashi pieces are going on clearance.
4 - ornaments will take over shop inventory.
I am not excited about this change. Giving up kanzashi is not something I wanted to do. I love my flowers, and my shop. But I do not have the ability to work at the demand made to order requires. I will still take custom work on occasion. It is my most favorite sale to make. But I no longer have the time and energy required to be a dedicated kanzashi artist.
I think we have discovered the root cause of my health problems. Which gives me hope, and fear. I have poly cystic ovarian disorder. It causes very poor hormone levels, including my type 2 diabeties. It can also give you cancer, if you have it bad enough. And i have it pretty bad. I go to a new obgyn for testing soon. Let's just hope my worst case scenario is a partial hysterectomy. Not kemo.
In light of all this, i at least have a path to follow to get better. I am not what you would call obese, but i am at least a few pounds over my bmi. So my time now must be dedicated to exercise. Religiously. Even 10 pounds can regulate my ovaries again. And reduce my fatty liver disease. Yeah. I have that too.
So as i lay here in bed with the flu, typing all this on my phone, i realize th as the this was a year of letting go. I lost several close friends, had deaths in the family, gave up kanzashi, and had my son diagnosed with autism. Hoping for a better 2015.
