Though I currently work full time, I expect to be retiring in about 4 years, so I have a plan. I certainly don’t expect to be one who sits around watching soaps and complaining that I have nothing to do. I already do some sewing for charities and I plan to expand that significantly, but of course, that isn’t going to pay for itself and I will have a fixed income.
My plan is to make some of my favorite things and do a few craft shows each year with my husband who is a talented woodworker. We decided that “Chickadee Workshop” was a great name for both of us, as we love the busy little survivors of winter. They are industrious and tough and I love their appearance, as well. So….WE are the Chickadee Workshop…though you won’t see hubby posting.
I have already begun sewing for the future; so far I have made some baby bonnets and some little clutch purses. I will also make cloth gift bags, tote bags and whatever suits my fancy as time rolls by–probably some cloth dolls and doll clothes. I used to make cloth dolls twenty years ago and it is still a deep love of mine. I just don’t have time to do it while I’m still working full time. I will post a few examples soon of my other projects.
Here is my little chickadee logo:
I may use him in my header eventually. Credit goes to my talented niece, Emily, for drawing my logo for me. Thanks Em!
