It's officially S U M M E R!

These are some photos of items I recently added/or will
be adding to my shop whenever i can find a little extra brake... 
Hello again! Can you believe its summer already?! Is time going fast, or does this only happens to people with kids and school?!  

As if I haven't said it already, I'm sooo busy all the time that sometimes i think i wont make it till the end of the day. -Yes! I'm very dramatic sometimes ;)-  I will give you some insight on part of my ongoing-never-ending to-do list/current status: graduate student taking classes; working on my thesis proposal draft (due VERY soon) ; still nursing my 13 month old baby girl...which leads me to, trying to keep up with my 13 month old little hurricane; working 30 hours a week doing research; studying and preparing for the GRE; preparing application materials for PhD programs; trying to keep up with mommy and wife duties... and besides all of these, I dedicate some time to my etsy shop which kind of keeps me a bit sane. Some people might call it crazy, I call it LIFE!

Keeping up?!

I was really hoping to keep some consistency in regards to posting, but it is not that easy.  I’ll get there though; I’ll get there. These have been a very busy two weeks (as always).

Two weeks ago we (my husband, daughter and I) went camping with some friends to Hurkey Creek Park, which is about 10 miles from Idyllwild in the San Jacinto Mountains, CA. That was fun! (in it’s own way).  It was also pretty cold at night but we managed to stay warm. In summary, it was an eventful weekend to say the least...but if you want to know more about it, I’ll be glad to make a post describing our “adventures”…just let me know.

So it is evident that I didn’t get to do any crafts that weekend whatsoever.  However, on Monday, Tuesday (and probably Wednesday as well), I worked on a large order of owl cupcake toppers, which by the way I just took off my site.  I know, I know they were adorable and somewhat fun to do (when I just do 12 or so) but they are also very time consuming and what I charge for them doesn’t even cover ¼ of the labor. It was a hard decision to make since I’m attached to them given that they were one of the very first listings I added to my etsy shop. Sniff, Sniff. But if you are dying to have them, I can always make an exception (on a person to person basis). You'll also be seeing them in notecards and such. :)

Well.. I’ll be writing another post sometime this week to catch up with what I did this LAST week (cross your fingers!!).
