{keep calm, but get to work, Gus!}

Since offering giveaway #2,
I have felt a heightened, overwhelming sense of something wonderful. I can't place my hands {or heart} on any one specific word that I am feeling, but it is so amazing. The responses to the contest and the e-mails I've received is a blessing. I feel this is exactly what I have needed with life -- and with the business side of life, too. Not much has been certain since the New Year, but let me tell you this: God provides. He's provided this new found sewing talent and the past month has been intense.

Intense like I continue to drop my jaw when I read my e-mail. I say "wow" so many times a day Zack has stopped asking what I'm wow-ing.

Intense like I feel like I'm in a dream and I hardly recognize this chapter in my life.

{Gussy sews?! What?! And I thought Gussy only talked... ;) }

Intense like a marvelous multi-tasking sistah that can't seem to move fast enough lately... I spend a lot of time doing a lot of things: researching places/blogs to advertise The Gus; how I can improve my shop sales; how I can improve Gussy; how I can meet new people.

It appears life is catching up with me.

Woo-hooooooooo :)

Aside from the Gussy label exploding, I feel like I have a job again. That in itself is gigantic blessing. I'm usually known to investigate every situation, get the details out on the table, that type of thing. But with sewing I feel like there isn't time to stop and ask, WHY ME, LORD? Or any other phrase I like to voice. I just have to get myself to The Sweat Shop {aka: my sewing room} with a big mug of coffee each day and keep at it.

Because this is my life right now.

Apart from the giveaway, I am working on a few proposals. They are all sassy, spectacular, and I'll be sure to share once they happen :) But in the meantime, here is a small sample:

PS. The giveaway was at 39%-off last I checked... how exciting is that?!?! :)

YAY for you Gussy! Wow...what a great post. We are so thrilled for you and love those pictures. I want that wallet.

Perhaps we could do a Gussy/MLG swap...a little cross promotional swap?!?!?!

Have a great day!

Dear friend Gussy,

So happy for you.

Now get back to the sweat shop!

Hello sister friend.

You have such an awesome talent and where ever God takes you with that be sure to Praise Him for all of it and He will take you even farther.

I love seeing all your beautiful creations.. makes me feel very lazy, but then I just laugh it off because I cant sew.. so.. Ill just blog instead.

Keep up the good work girl. I look forward to stocking up on your precious work for xmas.
