I'm Legal!!!

I got the dreaded signature and it was much easier than I thought it would be. The landlord was very nice... even sweet. Then I made my fourth trek to the city to get everything paid for and turned in. I even got to answer a question with "I own my own business." That was monumental for me. So if anyone out there needs help starting a business feel free to ask me questions and I'll help... I may ever write a book about it :)

The Beginning...

This begins the journey of Eli's Lids! It is 1:30 in the morning and my mind is reeling with ideas about my new business. I have my sellers permit so I'm now legal... almost. I still have to get my business license. Since Eli's Lids is a home business and we don't own our home I have to get a signature from our landlord. I'm not to thrilled about that because I think she is kinda a slum lord. I'm not sure if it is the peeled up laminate floors or the 40 year old faux marble green and cream counters that first gave me that impression but I'm nervous to ask for the signature.
I may not know whether I'll get the signature, but I do know that I make some pretty awesome hats for little boys!
More to come about my climb to fame... or at least my successful (or not) plee to the slum... I mean... landlord.
Here are some pictures of the final prototype for the snowboarder Lid. I had just finished sewing the brim on and I was beyond excited that it looked so cute on Eli.
