Is it bedtime yet?


It's been one of those weeks. Ya know, the ones that leave you exhausted in every possible way at the end of the day, yet you feel like you've accomplished almost nothing? Yeah, that's it. I've finally gotten up to 50 items in my shop (which in itself doesn't seem like a lot, until I factor in that the majority of my time is spent cleaning, running errands, and chasing after a bunch of toddlers. And even then, I need to list a *ton* more for the holiday season.)

I am having a celebratory sale on my etsy shop in honor of the fact that I somehow listed the big "50", although once I get to 100, boy, I don't know what I'll do! Take 15% off by putting "Made it to 50!" in the notes to seller and wait for a revised invoice to pay.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving, and if you don't celebrate that, I hope you have a calm and relaxing week!

It's Almost Christmas!!

Now, normally, I'm not too thrilled at Christmas coming waaaaaaay quicker than it should, but this year, it's different.

I don't know if my general outlook has changed (which would be good! Any amount of happiness is a triumph against depression), or if it means even more this year than others. My girls are doubly excited about Christmas this year as well: it means daddy will be home! Oh, I am so excited! Not only that, but I've even made a few holiday inspired pieces. So far, a lovely lanyard and an oh-so-elegant bracelet with Cream Swarovski Crystal Pearls, garnets, and emeralds!

I've started making lists for the kids, including parkas and long johns! I still have to figure out what actual fun stuff to get them! Any suggestions for a 1 year old boy and two girls, 3 (just about 4) and 5?

So, I'm hoping to eventually have a little more substance in my posts here soon. But, like it's titled, I ramble! Anyway, have to hop off here soon, DD wants to watch Hannah Montana....again. Ha!
