Busy & Unexepected Hurdles but Natural Mommas is Back!

August 6, 2014

New Home

So I had these huge grandiose plans after my last post, in APRIL {oh my, where has the time gone}, but a few bumps in the road caused me to take a break for a bit.  But I’ve been anxious and itching to get my Etsy shop going soon, as well as share a bunch more here on the blog.  I’m excited and can’t wait for others to also experience some wonderful homemade products from Natural Mommas!  🙂

Update from the past few months:

My first bump in the road happened when I decided it would be better to have an actual domain name but with a little research the domain name I wanted was taken/bought {this happened in December 2013 when I had done this search and found out it.  In fact, it had just been purchased a few weeks prior, boo!}.  BUT just the other day I did a search too see if things had changed and it had said it was available.  Unfortunately though, it still wasn’t available after further research.  :(. So I went with the second best option –

NATURALMOMMAS.US !!!.US Domain

So, I’m elated to have that all squared away so I can finally complete the product labels and get my Etsy shop up VERY SOON, I promise!

Which brings me onto the next bump in the road from the past few months…My hubby’s work buddy offered to design a logo for free and give the ‘rights’ to me but after 2+ months of getting the run around from this fellow, he never followed through.  So needless to say, as thankful as I was for the offer, I wish I had just continued on.  However, I’m glad I didn’t…

This ended up being a blessing in disguise because now I can put my official NEW domain name ON the labels (instead of having to include the WordPress part) when I open my Etsy shop soon, WOOHOO!!  And I’ll just go with the original logo I had because it was easy and worked perfect anyways.  🙂

The second milestone recently was a purchase of our first home in May, YAY!!  So I’ve been Über busy with packing, moving, cleaning, fixing, unpacking and organizing the new place.  Also, it didn’t help that Hubby has been recovering from clavicle surgery since April too.  So, needless to say, I’ve had a lot on my plate but we finally feel settled in and we’re definitely enjoying our pool a lot during this hot summer!

It has certainly been quite the balancing act with work and family visiting, a mini-vacation, and D starting Pre-School!!  So lots of positive changes recently but I’m glad life is calming down a little (for a while at least, crossing my fingers).

Needless to say, I am ready to get back on track with this exciting project and I will be checking back soon!

Peace ❤
