Well folks, it is with some sadness that today I submit my final entry into the Smittys Rancho blog. Since February of 2014 I have tried my best to inform as well as entertain our audience, and I would like to think I have done so adequately… but I need to move on in respect for my own plans for the future.
Not many of you know it, but I have been quietly growing a sewing business for the last two or so-ish years… and while I didn’t actually plan to have a business, I guess it just kind of evolved from something I considered a hobby at first. Now I am considering it my retirement plan… since we all have a pretty good clue how it is going to go with social security when it’s our turn – yep.
I am also involved in a very interesting and important recycling project in the oil and gas industry as project manager, researcher, and social media content developer (this helps pay for some pretty bad-azz sewing equipment I now own in my sewing workshop I might add).
So with all this going on, I feel that it is time to back off my involvement with Smittys Rancho and focus on my own doings – not because I don’t love you all (because you know I do). I will still be making all of the awesome bow cases and other Smittys Rancho gear you love, but the social media end will have to be passed along to someone else. My apologies.
Borrowing words from Thomas Edison… “If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.” I’m ready to go astound myself now – but before I do, I wanted to show you my very favorite products I have constructed (and designed in some cases) in my sewing workshop for all of you lucky Smittys Rancho fans & customers over the last two years.
Here they are….
There are dozens more items we carry that I just love, but I have to get going here – owning a small business is not always as easy or fun as it sounds – but you can find all of the great Smittys Rancho products seen above by clicking on any of the pictures.
Thanks for having me and it has been a pleasure (and FUN) meeting and hearing from you as well as exploring all kinds of cool topics each week.
Come visit me on Facebook if you’re so-inclined… look for “Ree in Stitches” and you found me! I have a group page as well as a business page… and FYI the group page is where all the fun things happen 😉
Take care – Ree 2015
