What. An. Exhausting. Week.
On top of having set the goal of opening my Boutique by November 1, I also had an insane week at work. Our member newsletter (which I’m completely in charge of) went out this week, and our annual meeting (which I helped plan and implement) was today. This week was good/fun hectic, but hectic nonetheless. So, as you can imagine, I am thrilled that it’s Friday. And for the first time in months, the weather is breathtakingly gorgeous!
Air conditioning off, windows wide open! The kitties are loving the fresh air.
Opening the Boutique (on time!) was an exhilarating feeling. Thank you to everyone who has given me such positive and encouraging feedback.
And speaking of the Boutique…I’ve updated it. Yes, already. Are you wondering when I sleep? Yeah, me too.
If you look at the right-hand side of this page, you’ll see two badges under the heading “Handmade stuff rocks!” The first is for the Handmade Pledge. If you’re willing to vow that you will buy handmade gifts this year — or make the gifts yourself — click over to www.buyhandmade.org and take the pledge. Support handmade!
The second badge is for “Handmade Holidays” at Sew, Mama, Sew!, an awesome site that is featuring an entire month’s worth of resources and ideas for sewing your own holiday gifts. Each day is a different theme — yesterday was aprons, today is pincushions, etc. I’m very excited and proud to say that my owl coaster tutorial will be featured in their November 12 “For the Table” post!
My brain has been working overtime all week, and it hasn’t yet slowed down. Alex and I are heading over to our friends’ house for dinner tonight. Some good conversation and a glass of wine should help mellow me out a little.
