It is time to say "Good-Bye" to Tippie Toads. I am amazed at the path that the Lord put before me to lead me to where I am today. In hind sight....there is really no other explanation than God's purposes for me.
When we first moved to The Woodlands, I sat in our rent house, not knowing a soul and started Penelope's Pitstop: Praiseworthy Paraphernalia. It was a fun little kick off for me to learn more than I ever thought I would know about the word of blogging, give-aways, affiliates, social media...and the list goes on. I really had no direction and taught myself everything I knew. I researched even the littlest things about how to write simple code, creating links (new for me then!) and I became an affiliate for several companies.
Next, based on the relationships I developed thru Penelope's Pitstop, I became a wholesaler for a couple companies and a rep for Write Away in order to have a boutique show in my home. This was so successful, that I felt led to start an online business to sell these items and thus began Tippie Toads. I learned even more here and spent HOURS upon HOURS researching the Internet and learning about the world of wholesaling. From the Write Away experience, I was determined to learn how to create my own stationery and set out to teach myself Photoshop. THAT was painful, but I did it! At that point, I let go of Write Away and started creating my own things.
In the midst of my perusing the Internet, I discovered Stationery Academy, which further prepared me for the craziest email...the email I received asking if I wanted to buy Write Away. As you can read in that post, I didn't receive it with open arms, my health was in the toilet and I was not looking for this opportunity. All that said....
I am having the time of my life! Having Write Away has been challenging, hard work, more time than I ever thought, but life-changing. I love the people I have met (or cyber-met) and work with. I love what I have learned and how it has pushed me to grow. I continue to learn and grow.
With all the time that Write Away has become, it is time to let my baby, Tippie Toads, go. If it weren't for Tippie Toads, I wouldn't be where I am today. It is just the time, I believe, to merge the two. So, I will be moving the products over to Write Away from Tippie Toads. It has taken baby steps and steps that were indeed preparing me for something bigger and better each time. Who's to say that Write Away is the final step? Thrilled to be on this ride and even more thrilled to have God in the driver's seat for it all.
