Melissa, best of luck with your new shop. It may be grueling hours for you for a while, but hang in there. You can do it.

Break a leg Melissa. Guess that's for actors but seems appropriate. Best wishes. 


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

I'm so excited for you Melissa.  I just know people will come from miles around to claim your shop as the best in the area.  Best wishes for a great grand opening.  Can't wait for your pictures. Be sure to take care of yourself too.

Best of luck to you Melissa.  I hope everything goes wonderfully for you.  If I was in Ca. I would be there, but it is a rather long drive from my Mi. home.    Ginny

I'm not sure if you'd considered it yet, but the Small Business Administration (sba.gov) has a whole lot of great resources for new business owners. In fact, they have a nice online business plan builder. They also offer counseling and have many articles on a wide variety of business related topics.  I've used the site pretty extensively and can't honestly say enough good things about them.

Best of luck to you on your new business venture!

Melissa Halpain:

Congratulations!!!  What an exciting event in your life.   Keep a diary.  When you are 90, it will be fun to read again and again and your grands and great grandkids will treasure the diary.  

Again, Congrats, Melissa.  Tell me all the details at the Oregon retreat where we will likely share a cabin.

Congratulations, Melissa. Much as writing memories sounds like a wonderful Idea I hope you are so busy and consequently so tired that all you will be looking for is a few minutes to sit down to gather your wits during the day. Then you will go home and nothing has ever been as wonderful as your bed. Get up in the morning and repeat!!

I want to thank all of you for all the words of encouragement, help and information. Tomorrow is the big day. I will be busy all day today, getting ready and I hope again tomorrow. I really hope to get pictures posted tonight. Again, thank you so much to everyone.
