monday update

happy monday!

so, this is our last week before school starts and i’m feeling a mix of freaking out and super excited.

all 3 of my kids will start part-time homeschooling this year and will be attending the same school, too.  crazy scary because now i’m responsible for 3 educations, but also pretty awesome because when they are at school they will all be in the same place.  for me that means 1 drop off, 1 pick up.  so nice!

i have loved having my kids home for the summer.  i know a lot of people are ready to send their kids off by the time school starts, but i am sad to be losing some time with them.  i am looking forward to focused work time again, but i’m sad that they’ll be gone, too.


i have restocked ALL of my wristlet clutches!

i cannot tell you how much i love mine!  i toss in my sunnies in their case, wallet, tiny pouch, chap stick and stick my iphone in the pocket, and still have plenty of room!

a handful of my customers also use it as a diaper clutch, fitting diapers and a pack of wipes easily.

a customer at the queen bee market also showed me how well her kindle fits into hers – great idea, because the clutch is nice and padded!


my week will be filled with more cleaning and prepping for school to start, trying to finish as much as we can off our summer list, and spending time with my sister-in-law and her kiddos while they visit for a few days.  silas is so excited – he thinks my 13-year old nephew is his best friend!

    They are all so beautiful, Lindsey! I am with you on the back to school – missing them. Our 3 can walk two blocks, which is so fun to have my coffee in one hand and my youngest holding the other. I look forward to that. But I miss them during the day.

    I have to second that! Totally miss the kids. I am not sure how I found your blog but I love it! I wanted to introduce myself and say hi since I am not used to visiting sites of people I don’t know :) I just recently started a new blog and so far I think it is going to be a great outlet for me. Love all of your hand sewn items and fabric choices. Wish I could sew like that! I have already pinned some of your photos like your living room… Love mermaid net paint color, gonna have to try it soon! Thanks for sharing. Much aloha, Malia

    We still have a couple years before our son goes to school, the school he will be going to is literally right around the corner [hop, skip and a jump] which will be nice on the cooler days and we can walk to and from school :)

    Happy Monday!

    I took my wristlet (black with lace trim) to a dinner function I had to go to Saturday night and received TONS of compliments… :)

    they look great!
    They would be a great fit for my linkup, I made it Monday!

    I can’t wait until I’m diaper-free…. in three years. Then I’ll buy so many of these! Right now with a newborn, I don’t think I can fit everything in. ;-) They are so cute, though- my fave is the first one!
