Hello Everyone! It has been quite the week here at The Cosy Book Shoppe and I’m excited to share with you what’s been happening. There hasn’t been a lot of new things on the “fun” side of things, though a lot of what I do, I enjoy so “fun” is a debatable concept. I’ll start with some business-ey items first and then give a little more of a personal update.
The biggest business update that I can announce for this week is that there will be a new section of the site! If you remember last week I touched on speaking with my nearest and dearest and we did a little business brainstorming. I have long wanted to incorporate cookies and baking into the business in some way. This is easier said than done, especially being a mostly online business. So, starting next week there will be a new weekly or semi weekly post called The Cosy Kitchen. Within this post there will be a full recipe for something that would be found in The Cosy Book Shoppe, along with a review of the baked good. This will not only be cookies/baked goods, it will also include some finger sandwiches, soups and other items similar to that. They will all fall into what would in fact be offered in the brick and mortar Cosy Book Shoppe. Not only will you get the recipe, but at the end of the post you will have a link where you can purchase all of the dry ingredients in the online shoppe! I will provide the exact amount of flour, sugar, spices, etc needed to make the recipe. This way anyone can create their own Cosy Book Shoppe in their home. All of the recipes will also be linked to a page on the website just in case you missed a post.
Note, I said that that was the only announcement that I said I could make this week! There are so many goods and items that are in the works and so many things that I will be able to announce shortly! I am so excited for the items that will be coming in, there are going to be so many good things to choose from to create your own little happy moment! The Cosy Book Shoppe is not only a shop, but it is a lifestyle and atmosphere. As I said in my introduction post, everything that I am listing and selling will help create your own atmosphere. One day, there will be a brick and mortar location that will offer everything listed and then some!
I also just briefly want to mention that I do have my personal blog up and going. The Curl Up blog is the little sister blog to The Cosy Book Shoppe business. You can check it out HERE and follow along with some more personal posts that I’ll be doing on there!
Now, for a more personal update…there has been a lot going on this week! It’s been super busy and almost has seemed non stop! I actually started to have a rough end of the week, but I was able to “re set” my day somewhat and overall the week was good for being so busy. We are getting ready to gear up for a little family vacation in about a week and I cannot wait! It is going to be such a great change to just relax and get away from the humdrum that life can become. I think it is incredibly important to just get away. Everyone needs a chance to not have to worry about anything and just take a breather. Vacations allow for us to do that in a way that doesn’t happen as long as we are home.
That’s what I’ve got for today! How was your week? Are you excited for the new posts that are going to be happening? I’d love to hear from you!
