Asalam alaikum all,
Although I have opened my shop again about a month ago I haven’t had the chance to update you on what’s new and what’s going on yet. First of all it’s great to be back. I realized that this little hobby of mine was actually quite a stress reliever. Since I opened up again I’ve been a bit happier with everything even though I’m being ruled by a madam who’s only a few years old and a toddler who jumps on top of me every morning telling me in her own baby language that she owns me and I can’t do anything about it. Before it was a bit too much, but now I see the beauty of it all. How funny is that?
Recently my brother-in-law got married. Okay it wasn’t recently but considering I missed the wedding it still feels like recently and I don’t know why. Anywho his new bride and I were having a pleasant conversation on Skype, you know as you do, and we came to the topic of having hobbies. It’s common that when we get married we have to let go of things we used to enjoy doing. I had a lot of hobbies when I was single, and I’m sad to have had to let go of some of it for pots and pans and diapers. However I’m glad I got to keep some of my hobbies while I had the chance. I’ve thought about giving up jewellery making time and time again because it’s just hard to keep up with it when you are a full time mom, but I’m glad I didn’t. This was exactly what I told my sister-in-law, you can be a full time wife and mom but just having that one thing for yourself to enjoy will keep you happier in the end.
Whether it’s reading, drawing, painting, video gaming – you name it, if it makes you happy then don’t give it up. When you get older and your children will leave the nest what will you have to look back on? Memories? Memories are great and all but they don’t keep you warm at night, in fact they do the opposite and make you feel even more lonely. At least keeping up with a hobby will help you expand your horizons to other things and the habit of keeping busy so you won’t have to feel like your life has changed so much.
Anyhow enough with my life advice lol.
So now that life is a bit much nowadays with the two little ones and playing the wife I have had to reduce shipping to one day. Mondays are shipping days! At least I’ll try to get your packages done by Mondays. If your packages are larger than usual then I’ll send you an e-mail if I can’t ship it on time. Also if your orders are rather small and easy to complete I may send it off after receiving the order. I’ve posted all this detail on the shipping and returns page so at least my pages are up to date! If your order is urgent or you really need it soon please just send me an e-mail before you order and I’ll let you know if it can be done!
Also if you haven’t seen it already I do have a blog site which I update prom time to time. Give it a whirl and tell me what you think! Here’s the link: http://hijabpinshop.blogspot.com/
And last I’m coming up with new designs and styles that I hope you will love to wear as much as I love making them. I have been approached for wholesale pins so send me an e-mail if you are interested. However you will have to purchase over £100.00 worth in order to get a percentage off. That’s really the best I can do considering I gotta sit here and make all this stuff!
That’s all for now I guess, take care my lovelies and if I can ask my lovely sisters to please help me spread the word of my little shop by liking and sharing my posts and site I would really appreciate it very much. May Allah (swt) bless you all with happiness and good health always inshaAllah and ameen!
