 I asked our friend Pam from PK Fabrics to tell us how she has time to manage 2 shops here is what she has to say. thanks PK for all of your support.   How do I balance 2 shops? Hmmm...you would have to see the world in Pammyvision to understand, lol. I am an OCD, hyperactive insomniac. That allows me the time and energy to do whatever I need to do, hahahaha. I’m one of those people you just want to slap around....I don’t do naps, not a big fan of shopping, don’t watch TV much and I like being at home.    Oh! And I love sweets....totally addicted to designer cupcakes at the moment. Nothing to spur you on like a good sugar rush! When you combine it all and add a little workaholic in to the mix, you have 2 Etsy stores, woohoo! But the best part of all of it is that I’m able to do something I love. I have a passion for fabric and creating. When you are able to do something you love, you have the ability to do it well.     pk 300x225 Guest Post By Pam Of PK Fabrics and PK Stuff
