One giant leap...

Starting a business is hard. 

Not hard in the sense of gemstones or maths, but perhaps closer to putting together a puzzle on a table smaller than the finished picture.  You can visualize bits of it at a time in great detail, but as soon as you get one side of it straight, the rest falls out of view.  Overall, I would put the experience somewhere between driving down the only open lane in a construction zone at night during a rain storm with cones on both sides of you, and maybe coaching youth soccer.  Thankfully in both cases, a good pep talk and a pat on the back can do wonders. 

Sometimes all you need is for someone to tell you that you can do it.

This project has been kicking around in our minds for years, but never really quite rattling loudly enough to overpower the other things in our life until recently.  It was an idea that needed some time to germinate (perhaps fester would be more appropriate) for awhile until it became tangible.  Until you could rub it between your fingers and detect it's texture.  Well, we finally decided that time was here.

Getting down with the plan...

This site is part of a bigger idea that hasn't quite come to fruition.  We're still in the seedling phase.  Peeking up from the soil, testing the sun to determine if we're ready.  We intend to continue adding things we make here, and see where it takes us.  Our roots are already pretty strong, so we are excited to see how much we can grow this year. 

We are motivated, creative, and just the right amount of crazy.  Now let's see where that takes us.
