Throughout this month, Charlie and I have been working tirelessly to get designs up onto our online store. It’s been a very meticulous process, but it’s all been worth it! Slowly but surely our designs are getting put up and I’m so happy we’re almost done for the Summer ’12 line. After this is done, our next project is our look book. I know that’s going to be such a big undertaking. But I’m excited about it at the same time.
I’ve been transitioning my role and the way it affects the company. I’ve been digging deep and really making tough decisions these past few months. Based on our personal and professional goals and a lot of prayer I think I’m finally walking down the right path. At the end of last month, I decided to focus solely on graphic design. CO will continue to provide graphic design and web services, invitations and custom stationery, as well as iPhone and iPad cases.
I was going back and forth about this decision as the past 7 years of my life have been dedicated to the wedding planning industry. To let go of that aspect of my life and career was very difficult for me. I worked so hard, I planned so many events, I met so many great people, and me giving up would mean I failed.. All I thought about was why I should stay. But slowly, it started to crumble away and I started to realize why I should leave. In fact, the last 3 years have been me going back and forth about it. Instead of wanting an answer that same day (cuz that’s just how I roll), I decided to let go and let God. And quickly, he gave me the answer.
Now, I couldn’t be happier! Things have been moving along on my new career path swimmingly and I’m incredibly excited about where my new career path is going to take me. Letting go of my old path may mean I failed, or it may not. But what matters most is that I don’t care. It just means I fell and got back up, better than ever.
Since I’m in a happy mood we’re going to do a contest in June! We’re going to be giving away a free iPad case and a free iPhone in celebration! Stay tuned for details everyone!
