Like Lois Pearl

Moving forward!

Do you remember where the name Lois Pearl originated?  Naming my biz after my grandmother and great grandmother should tell you a lot about me.

I LOVE family
I LOVE my hometown
I'm a bit sentimental

Lois Pearl has been so blessed with opportunity this past year.  After a long winter of working from home I realized that I was just too lonely all day!  I will always choose to live in the country, but working out there by myself all day every day was not my style.

This extravert needs more interaction.

Our little town is going through a lot of change.  There is a push to "bring back" downtown Yorktown, IN.  This is my hometown.  There is a gazebo here where my dad used to hang out after school.  There is the family farmhouse where my grandmother (Lois) was born.  There is the old bank building where my great-grandmother (Pearl) used to walk.

And as I type I'm listening to the church bells ring.  The church where I went to preschool, and Hill & I were married.

My studio needs to be in this town.  I need to be a part of this town.

So here's the big announcement.  I've moved out, or up, or on.  It's a great thing.

We've spent countless hours of the last month painting, cleaning, and organizing to get the space ready.  Today I'm finally here.  It feels like my first day at a new job.  Fresh, clean, exciting.  It's making me ever so happy!

Oh, and that bank that my great grandmother used to walk to?  That's where I'm at.  The Bank space!! It even has the coolest old vault inside!

I'll share pics of the finished studio soon.  It's feels a bit empty now, but soon it will be filled with all sorts of pretty things, the sound of humming sewing machines, probably a little country music, and laughter!

I hope that you have a terrific week!  I'm headed out to the Country Living Fair in Columbus, OH for a girls weekend.  I'll be sure to post pics for you next week!
