I feel like I need to clarify my previous post on what is considered "custom". It is such a fine line and hard to explain what I mean, but I will do my best. These are just some specific examples, but again, if you have any questions feel free to email me.

I am STILL doing things such as a oneise/burp rags/bibs with a single initial applique and name.
I can STILL monogram all your stockings, towels, blankets, etc that you provide.
I am STILL selling all the bags, towel wraps, baby blankets, hooded towels, diaper covers, etc.
I am STILL making holiday applique shirts that will be featured on the website.

It basically boils down to there may be times that you see something cute somewhere or envision that you are dying to have that may take me too much time to learn how/actually do that I might have to say no, whereas in the past I was willing to give it a try.

I hope this helps clear up some of the miscommunication. So sorry for any confusion there may have been! I appreciate all the super sweet emails and comments supporting my decision. It means a lot to me!

Difficult Decision

I feel so blessed to have been able to start this business less than a year ago and be where I am today. I was a former teacher/ stay at home mom who thought it would be fun to make some cute things for my little girl and bring in a little income on the side. I had no idea how quickly it would grow. I truly feel overwhelmed with gratitude for everyone who has given my name out or recommended me to friends.

Lately I have been forced to make some difficult decisions regarding Tickled Sew Pink. I have sort of joked in the past about how I struggle to balance being a good wife, mother, business owner with no one being neglected. After talking it out with several close friends I realized it basically boils down to priorities. My very first priority is my husband and children. They come first, PERIOD. However, recently I have let this business take over and it is causing me to realize my first priority isn't always first. I say all of this to say that I had to take a hard look at where I could adjust and make time to do both and do both well (meaning be a wife, mother, and business owner). It really is a simple change and some will not notice any changes at all. I have decided not to do any more custom orders.

What is a custom order you ask? Well if you are asking me "Can you put such and such letters on the front, then in another color do such and such and then tie it in a fancy bow?" That is custom. It isn't the basic burp rag, applique, etc. It would be something that would be special just for you or a small group that wouldn't be something everyone would want. If you have a question if your future order falls in that category, please feel free to ask. Just please understand if I have to tell you no it isn't easy for me, but I have to keep in mind my children are growing up fast enough as it is and I cannot fathom missing one second of it. This change won't be forever, but at least until my kiddos are in school full time and I have more time during the day to work. *Normally I am working from 8:30 pm- about 1:00am.*

Thank you again for helping this little dream of mine explode into an amazing reality!

It's Baby Time!
