Helllooo. Did you guys miss me? I know, I know, been a slacker on my blog. I do have a good excuse ya know, lol. I think things are starting to calm down around here a bit now. The kids were happy to have their first Monday morning without having to go to school! Remember that? Oh, that's a great feeling!
Here's my latest listing in my Etsy shop--a romantic book cover/carrier. Isn't it pretty? See that beautiful ribbon trim? I got that as a surprise with my order from Aggie -- Pareo at Etsy. One of the best things about doing business on Etsy and blogging and Flickr is that you meet the BEST people! I met Aggie when she ordered an item from me and I checked out her shop and saw the beautiful shabby chic decoupage work she does, so I had to order a little something from her too. We just hit it off--she is just such a sweety! Well, anyways, she had that beautiful trim that she got from her Grandma and decided to share it with me. How nice and sweet is that?!! Thanks Aggie--I hope you like what I did with it!
We had a special birthday to go to on Saturday--my little Goddaughter turned 5!! Yeah. She is so cute. She got a little pink tutu as a gift, and she looked so adorable running around in it. It made me remember when my Linds was a little girl of about 4, we were rummage saling one day and she found this little black tutu--just her size! She LOVED that tutu and wore it everyday--summer and winter--for about a year! LOL EVERYWHERE we went! Not surprising, she ended up taking ballet for several years (when she got a little older!) and she really loved it. Anyways, it was fun to get together with the brothers and their families, it was a lovely and sunny day, and a good time was had by all.
Well, enough gabbing for tonight--I better get to bed. OH, I almost forgot...go check out this blog , She's Sew Pretty, a fun read and she is having a drawing for some of her lovley rosy stuff! You'll be glad you did--and be prepared to have another blog to add to your reading list! Good night friends!!
