This year has been a bit different already. My etsy shop has had quite a bit of activity. Those hennies are flying the coop. I've made 32 just this week! And I love it. I always have fantasized about having a little shop to sell my handmades. In fact, I set one up as a child in the kitchen-it had potholders, jewelry, scrunchies, homemade dolls...you know, for the shopping pleasure of my relatives who happened to pop over. Fun memories. But now? I couldn't be happier that my little dream has become a reality. I know it's just busy for the holidays...but I must say this crafting hustle bustle is really quite fun! (Except my own projects are getting pushed to the side... alas, I'll get to them.)
But most of all, I'm thankful for this man...who is such an awesome dad and husband. He embraces all of my ideas, encouraging and supporting me without hesitation. He's been helpful keeping the kids busy so I am not always filling orders with two 'helpers'.
