So... I've moved.

I've been toying with this change for awhile. A long while actually. While I liked WordPress... I don't feel as if I could ever make it look the way I wanted without spending a lofty amount of money. And quite honestly, I just didn't have that money laying around. So... I stopped blogging for a couple of months. Reason being... I just didn't like the way it looked.

Sad. I know.

I have also been toying with opening up a shop for a bit. I just didn't know the avenue that I wanted to go with it.

But then...

A couple of weeks before Christmas I had made myself this...

A bright, colorful, super soft cowl. And had a HUGE response to it. I hadn't intended on making and selling them but after seeing all the love that my first two got... I decided - why not?! Instead of searching for a niche in the handmade world - one found me. And I couldn't be happier. Or more grateful! 

Since then I have made and sold quite a few - but have used Facebook, Instagram, and word of mouth as my main avenues of selling. 

And after I thought long and hard I decided that opening an online shop would be extremely beneficial. 

With that... Nora & Jac {the story behind the name will be in a later post!} was born. Again, I struggled with whether or not to keep my blog name as Messy Hair & Cowboy Boots or to change it all so it's more cohesive. I bit the bullet... and here we are. I'm starting 2013 completely fresh. New blog, new shop, and lots of exciting things in store. I hope you'll follow me on this new adventure!

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram and Twitter.

Coming VERY soon... my Store Envy shop!!!

p.s. This little guy is still a work a progress so bear with me until the dust settles!
