June 25th at Top of the Hill Shops, these are some of the things that will be for sale!

So, The Goddess Door is officially an LLC now! That doesn't mean I will leave my main job as a physical therapist (which I love, and will have to write more about sometime). It also doesn't mean I have figured out how to make a profit selling knitwear, even the really gorgeous stuff.

It means that I am going to sell my things at an event, and I want to pay taxes (as I should) on stuff I sell. I have been partnering up with others who collect and pay the taxes for us both, but I figured it was about time I make the leap. And, maybe, someday, I will learn how to make some money with this thing that I love to do. I suspect that might involve writing and selling patterns, which I find pretty exciting! So, I am all set up to move ahead, if that is how things proceed.

The kids and I are doing pretty good. This is the first week of their summer break, and they are deep into Vacation Bible School, Camp Cool, soccer, and piano lessons. We have canoeing, camping, kayaking, sailing, and zip-lining planned over the summer. I can knit during only some of those things!

I haven't blogged in quite a while. The Vincent and the Doctor post was very meaningful for me, and I almost felt like... well, what do you say after that?  I still think of Don often, I still miss him terribly, and I work to keep his memory alive for his sons.  And I am also continuing to live, love, and create. So, I will try to write a bit more often. There are really fun yarn and knitting ideas percolating in my brain!

Oh, the event! Do you know about the Pirates in the Harbour?  Well, on June 25th, they are having an event at Top of the Hill Shops!  Here is the description from their website:

June 25th - Our 1st ever "Partying With The Pirates" bash at the Top Of The Hill Shops in Fish Creek - Their will be various crafters and a lot of great shops to find just the Door County souvenir or gift you've dreamed of. We'll be serving our famous Cheeseburgers in Paradise AND some great craft beers from Door County Brewing Company for consumption in our beer garden for those of legal age. Profits from this event will be for the 4 food pantries in Door County.

I hope to see you there!
