Black Friday

I LOVE Black Friday, so I just wanted to link really quick to a list of bunch of Black Friday sales on Etsy. My name will be on that list soon ;)


Now that I'm not a month behind it's easier to just sit down and blog.

I got to make these sweet little aprons for a friend of my Mom's. They turned out so cute!

These are my kids modeling them.

We're getting ready for Thanksgiving now, and I have a lot to be thankful for. Family, home, love, success, friends, comfort.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Oh good, the stomache flu

I have not died or fallen off the face of the earth. I have been so incredibly busy!!!!!!
First of all, we finished our basement and rearranged the entire house. The kitchen was the only room that stayed mostly the same. It's just like moving without the excuse to order pizza. But now the girls have their own rooms, we have an office and a nice big school room!

I've been making 5 life sized snowmen for a charity event for children with cancer. It took me 2 months to design the first one and then a good 3 hours for each one after that. Whew!

Add to everything else, my shop has just gone nuts! I never thought I'd be this busy! It's unreal! I've got custom orders coming out my ears!

And then, the stomach flu. Sometimes we need to slow down and rest and re-evaluate what's important. If you can't find an opportunity on your own, the Lord will give you that opportunity. So thank you Lord, for the stomach flu. This week I've spent a lot of time snuggling and nurturing my children. Yesterday I got to sleep all day and take a long bath. Today I get to serve my husband. That's my real job, that's more important than any old snowmen.
