But it's not the time required to write this that's difficult. It's the content.
How to communicate it well, how to convey how the emotion and thought that went into this decision, how to finish it well. That's what's stinkin' hard to do right now. And why I've put it off for so long. But, with the upcoming release of my Spring Canopy collection this week, I knew it was the perfect time to announce that I'm wrapping things up. Making and sending off one final set of canopies (which happens to also be my favorite of all time!) will leave Hemmed In just where I want it: in the everyday lives of hard working, multi-tasking, love-pouring Mamas who could use a little help "simplifying life with baby" wherever they can find it!
I am shutting down the operations of Hemmed In. Specifically, by
May of this year.
While the world around us screams by at lightening pace, and it seems everyone is handling more than ever with picture-perfect ease, the truth is: You can't do everything; despite what your social media feed may have you believe!
I've made it my purpose statement for this business to "Simplify Life With Baby"; now it's time for me to take my own advice and live that very mission.
So, while Spring blooms and another year of new life emerges, Hemmed In will be entering a season of hibernation.
All I know is that my new title will be simply "Mom." Not "Work at Home Mom," or "Small Business Owner" or "Mompreneur." Just Mom. To who knows how many kiddos! (And on most days, that's probably more than I can handle, if I'm honest!)
HOWEVER: all that to say, this is not happening today. In a few short months, yes, Hemmed In will shutter its windows. But there's still time for one more round of life-simplifying canopies to get into the hands of Mamas delivering a new batch of babies this spring!
And, I must say, I've saved the best for last:
:: Spring 2017 Canopy Collection ::
They're each just right for an everyday baby accessory that's really for mom: colors that are understated and modern, with trendy patterns that don't topple over into the cheesy baby realm.
This is an extremely Limited Release, with less than 10 canopies available in each style. They'll be available for purchase, and ready to ship, this Saturday, March 18th. If you're not already a Hemmed In VIP, make sure to sign up today to get in on Exclusive Offers on these and the last few Mini Dot or Solid canopies about to be clearanced!
Thank you so much for reading this, and thank you for your purchases in support of Hemmed In! I couldn't do this without you.
