Worth the Wait

The e-commerce site is taking shape and even though I haven’t officially launched it yet, it’s published and we’re starting to see visitors from all over the world – we’ve even sold a few things. Thank you, shoppers! 

So excited to re-direct my focus on simple things like adding a new listing everyday, creating a new blog post each week and publishing a monthly newsletter for subscribers.

It’s a good day!

Someday

Someday I might get around to another someday but for now I’m knee-deep into the decade old someday of designing the elusive online shop.

After following the directions and starting over a thousand times, it became crystal clear that patience gets easier the more you use it.

Three cheers to those who stick around long enough for the pieces to magically fall into place.

Happy Friday!

10 Years Later

After Buddy passed in 2009, tilegypsy.com was born. Happy 10th Anniversary to us. 😉

Years earlier … my intention was to become a brick and mortar shop-keeper (I was) and tile artist (I am) who taught herself how to design websites (I did) and would live happily ever after until … the universe kept showing me the door … not once,  (I’m not a quitter) not twice, (pack-unpack) but 1/2 dozen times. Thanks for your patience, Robbie.

When one of my intentions show up, I try really hard to honor it but this time was different. The wretched (being kind) side of the human element literally forced me – with a good pummeling – to get off my butt and take a completely different path. Bravo. Mara Lee, take a bow, you rock!

My suggestion after being shoved toward enlightenment is to  …  arm yourself with a case of Kleenex, Fiji water and plenty of snacks … that way you’ll have a better chance of riding the courage wave, until you reach the shore.  You can do it water boy;) #hidave

In memory of my sweet Budders.
