So, I figured since I've mentioned my cute lil Shasta once or twice throughout the site and on social media I wanted to give you a couple of "before" pictures as we continue on with our adventure in fixing her up and getting her road ready! We still have a ways to go but I am determined to have everything completed by the end of the year! Here are some peeks:
This was the first day we brought her home (or to my parent's home, rather). She doesn't look like much to most people but I knew right when I saw her that I had to have her! Though I do love the more curved "canned ham" shaped Shasta's, the stars just really aligned with her and I knew I couldn't pass up the opportunity. Plus, she's a bit wider and longer than a lot of the rounder versions which I think will ultimately make for a more comfortable, efficient shopping experience.
This next batch of photos is from this past weekend. We've gone out and worked on her a couple of times over the past few weeks and she still may look like a hot mess (and don't misunderstand, she most certainly is) she has actually already undergone so much change. The demo stages are completely finished, we are now at the point where we can begin building up and then after that, the fun stuff! Deciding what she'll look like! I'm so excited/nervous about this part. I love the whole branding aspect but with all of that excitement there comes just as much anxiety about finalizing it all. When something is so close to your heart and to your chest, it's scary to finally be at the point where I'm having to make these decisions!
I barely ever talked about this whole crazy dream scheme of mine, not really sure why. Afraid of what people would think or afraid of it failing, who knows. But now it's happening and I'm just going to have to get over it and get on with it! But, as nerve-wracking and overwhelming as it can all be, I am extremely excited about what is in store. Has anyone else out there been hesitant to tell other people their crazy dreams too? I can't imagine I'm alone here. Anyone?... Anyone?
