Do you remember in this post how I talked about risk?  I am NOT a risk taker.

However, to start fulfilling my dream, I need to take a risk.

At the beginning of the all-new Cotton+Wood, I explained a bit about the name change from My Bright Corner [blog] and Yellow Hope [shop] to Cotton+Wood.

To give you a nutshell version, I live in a creative desert.  There are no cute fabric or paper shops in my town or the surrounding towns, save the big box retail stores.  [Boo!]

So to get my name and idea out, I opened up Cotton+Wood online first.

Cotton = fabric
Wood = paper

I knew I wanted to sell fabric first.  Since I took this week off work, I had the time to make my first order.  It was a bit nerve-wracking.  I had to narrow down my choices to a "measly" 13-14 bolts.  Then of course all the What if.... questions popped into my brain.

All this to say...

I canNOT wait to show you the fabric I picked out.

I canNOT wait to sell the fabric in the shop.

I canNOT wait to make bags out of the fabric that will arrive shortly.

How's that for end of the week news?!!!!  Boom!
