I Feel I am Failing You...

Happy Monday everyone! I was wondering if I might be able to share my heart with you for a couple minutes? You see... I've had a lot on my heart recently & feel like if I were able to share it with you, I might be able to answer some questions.

When starting this website, my desire was to create multiple coloring pages & prints & have new items available to purchase often. I wanted to have fresh, new coloring pages each month & inspire you through my art. 

I know you haven't seen any new coloring pages or art prints in my shop since I last updated it with a few fall items 4 weeks ago, & this is where I feel I have failed you. I know many of you follow me on Instagram & see some of my "teasers" I post almost weekly with new seasonal coloring pages or prints with comments saying that they will be on my website to purchase soon. Unfortunately, "soon" hasn't happened, which frustrates me & honestly leaves me feeling like I have failed you & lied to you. Please know that it is not, & never will be, my intention to mislead you! I never want to come across as someone who doesn't keep my word or another artist who couldn't make it in the art world. 

I'm  learning that when starting a new business where you have more than one person to rely on, that it doesn't always go according to how I think it should. Things happen, life happens..... & I'm having to learn how to extend grace in the midst of frustration. I have to remind myself how many times has God given me grace when I most definitely didn't deserve it! And because my desire is to be more like Him, I must choose to renew my mind & try to walk in full, no strings attached grace! (and my goodness... that is hard to do sometimes! can I get an amen?!?!)  

I'm asking for you, if you're willing, to have a lot of grace & understanding with me & my website as this is a completely different world for me! I'm new to the whole idea of blogging & creating a successful website is something I've wanted for a very long time! I can tell you, with confidence, that I am doing all I can to get new products up as quickly as I can because the last thing I want to do is to let you down!  

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support & understanding through these beginning stages of my new adventure! Even with all the frustrations, I wouldn't trade a single minute of it! Please continue to come back because I have some new opportunities that are coming up in the next week or two that you do NOT want to miss out! I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
