Hello, anyone there??

Sometimes, I feel like I have nothing to say on this blog.

I wish I had more time to share tutorials, and I wish the things I do in my every day life weren't as boring so maybe I wouldn't feel so silly talking about them.

I love sharing links and images, and chatting. I'm hot and cold on writing a paragraph of thoughts and happenings. I am somewhat uncomfortable re-reading my daily crap lol. Follow me on twitter if you're interested in random thoughts.

Currently I'm working on:

- finishing up the last of the backorders finally - light at the end of that tunnel
- sticking with a good cleaning routine
- cooking from scratch more - I hate dishes
- hating the dishes less
- always learning how to make life more beautiful for less money
- teaching my son things - he is like a sponge right now
- planning halloween costumes and starting to think about christmas and winter
- cozy-fying my house for the coming colder months
- daydreaming. lol :)


also: new items on my flickr photostream today - soon to be in the shop. Let me know if you want anything reserved.

If you miss me when I don't post here - I post daily on my now main blog Paper*Cakes finds - I showcase handmade indie style and cute things - searching through all of the stuff on Etsy so you don't have to :)

Happy Saturday! :)

I hope you're all having a good weekend. I am taking this Saturday morning and afternoon to clean house and catch up on projects. Jude goes to his Oma's house on Friday evenings which leaves Matt and I with some time to get some sleep, and relax as adults :) I like to take weekends mostly away from the internet (yeah even I need a break lol) and spend lots of time with family/friends. On Sunday mornings I go to the flea market where I have a table and in the evening/afternoons we all gather for supper.

Anyways, this post is not just about my weekend itinerary - I wanted to write a thank you to a super sweet girl :) she sent me a cute little gift when I was feeling down a couple weeks ago and it came in the mail this week..


You should check out her Etsy shop - she is Canadian, obviously super sweet, and she gets a lot of my jokes that many don't. Save some cardboard and buy an eco coffee sleeve - would make great stocking stuffers too ;)

Hope to see you at the north river marketplace on sunday! I'll have lots of new items! To see previews of some of my things please check flickr.

Ahhhh, Autumn.

Whhhhhhhhhew! I am *so* glad that it is fall :) the cooler weather... and the less crazy schedule are so nice! I love summer but I was getting burned out by the temps and all of the things going on.

I am finally caught up (almost) with my shop, my home, and life life - yay! :) I have been working on a lot of new items, and trying to list those which I have had around waiting for a while. I will be starting crafty classes in a few weeks out of my home and am super excited for that too!

This is just going to be a quick post, but I want to share a few of the new items I have recently released. The shop has re-opened with a BANG - thank you all for the support I appreciate it so much!
