Well, hello 2022.
Can't believe just 2 years ago, life as I knew it would totally come to a halt. Like...stop, do not pass go, do not collect $200, go directly to...your home?! Unbelievable.
With all of life happenings, last April made 10 years that I started B Chantel Designs. I also gave birth to my baby boy so celebrating 10 years in business was a no go (plus this Panera we're still in the midst of *rolls eyes*). And honestly, I began to feel like what's the point. I am no where near what I thought I would be doing and felt extremely unaccomplished. So I acknowledged it and left it there.
After a month of trying to suppress those mixed emotions, I had to recognize that I am not a failure. I took MANY paths in my business. And when I had a good idea, I rolled with it and I did very well in it! Made some amazing pieces! Even made some flops *cringe face* BUT I have loved this process so much. I love creating! The skills I've learned and developed over the years have made me fall in love with what I do over and over again.
Through it all, I have realized over the past year I took off from my business that I did a lot of people pleasing and kept pushing further away from the vision that I originally had. So over the next 3 months, business as usual will be phasing into the new and improved B Chantel Designs. I appreciate all the love and support I've received over the years and I am excited for the new!
Change is great, so I choose to embrace it!
