Endings and Beginnings

Let me start by saying that for all of you who were regular readers, I am so sorry for abandoning you for such a long period of time. I found myself in a precarious situation where I was out of work for five months, and I kind of fell down on posting. It was kind of a rough time, but it did allow for a new phase in my shrub making career, and I want to share it with you.

Hopefully in the not too distant future, I will be making the leap from amateur shrub enthusiast to professional shrub maker. Yes, that's right...I will be selling the very shrubs I have been gleefully sharing with you fine people.

What does that mean for Feel Like Making Shrub, you may ask. The answer is that I probably will not be continuing in quite the same manner as I was before, but we will have a new blog that is more specific to the workings of the new company, which will hopefully include a lot of the same type of behind the scenes action that you have come to love(hopefully!) here at Feel Like Making Shrub.

I hope that at the very least I've inspired you guys to buy some jars and take some risks in your own kitchens. I've learned a lot from my experiences and I'm very grateful to everyone who took an interest in this modest little project of mine. So thank you, thank you, thank you everyone.

Please keep this spot bookmarked, as I will be linking to the new company site and blog as soon as they get up and running. I am very excited and nervous to see how it all turns out, but I hope that you'll come along on this new adventure as well. If any of you make it to the Seattle area, please keep an eye out for our products, hopefully on the menus of some of our finest local establishments.

I'm not good with ending things, so I'll just say, "See you soon."

Until then, keep on shrubbin'.

Hey Alexander,

I have now read the entirety of your blog, and would like to thank you for all your writings on Shrubs.

I had never encountered the idea of drinking vinegar before last week, and I don't know if I'll enjoy it or not; however, reading your entertaining and informative posts gave me the push I needed to give a try!

Yours is the only website with extensive Shrubbing knowledge I have encountered, and I really do wish you the best of luck on your business - please keep us updated, as I'd like to be among your first customers, to see how a true master's Shrub tastes!

Thanks again,

I've only recently discovered shrubs, and now it's become an obsession. Your blog has become my 'go-to' source for inspiration. If I have an idea, I check to see if you have done something similar and have advice. Thank you, and good luck to you!
