Branching Out

 Hey everyone!   It's been a while since I have shared.   I have been meaning to update you all on what's been happening here but trying to find time is tricky!

My garden endeavors turned out nicely.   I am very happy with the progress I made this past few months.   I am not, however, happy that in the process I managed to do quite a number on my right shoulder!   For weeks I was in agony and could do very little.   My yard work came to a screaming halt and I was forced to sit and watch as my grass grew and my kids mowed for me!  I wish I had photos to share, but my injury made me a tad cranky and I never got around to taking any.   I will make it a point to take lots next spring/summer.  

Covid has changed the way my company does business this year as all of my really good markets were cancelled...so I still have my products in several retail stores as well as online.   It has been a challenge to keep up with all the rules and new protocols.  

I made thousands of masks, donated a substatial portion of them and was taking orders like a crazy woman for a few months.   Now, masks are the new stocking stuffer, so I have been shipping lots of those as well as the usual clothing items...

When fall came, and I no longer was tempted to be outside...I finished up a bunch of the masks to have on hand, and restocked the clothing, accessory line.   I then stepped WAY out on a limb...

...I turned my attention back to my little company, and I stepped out of my comfort zone just a little bit!  19 8ighty 9ine Clothing House has now become 19 8ighty 9ine Clothing House and Home!

Yes!   I finally got brave enough to expand my product line to include items for the home, and am SO glad that I did!   It's been a great success and I have been super busy filling orders and dreaming up new ideas! 

I now offer several different things that will enhance every home!

This is a few examples of what I am talking about.

There are pillows...of different styles...







 
 
 
There are some dish hand towels....
as soon as I restock these, they seem to sell out!
 

 
some table runners and napkins...
also selling out as fast as I can make them!
 



And some casual blankets!
 








I have been so very busy!   I am so grateful that I taught myself the skills to do what I am doing...and that I love every minute of it.   Being able to support my family and do what I love at the same time is an absolute blessing.   

I am still designing the ladies clothing and accessory line, and now I'm decorating at the same time. 

As Christmas sneaks up on us again I am excited to be participating in a new store in our little town.   I have rented a decent size space there and many of my designs for home and clothing are displayed for sale in there.   It has been busy in there too so I need to be organized.   I also need to find time to put up the holiday decor, and keep up with my family.  

If you would like to see my complete line of products visit www.chic-a-boot.com and see what's in stock...what's on sale and shop!!!   (shipping is always free to US and Canada addresses)

So...on that note I am off to my sewing space!

 

 

 Until Next Time... Stay Safe...and Healthy!
