it’s friday. IT’S FRIDAY! freaking out here a bit as i only have a few more days before we leave for our missions trip and i am not ready! packed, yes (pretty much). work stuff ready, eh… not so much. kid stuff ready (itinerary, homeschool…), not reeeeally. so this weekend is going to fly by because i know i am going to be so busy! i may not even get my coveted date day with silas today – so bummed!
but here are my pics of the week from my phone, and i’m linking up with jeannett. there are a lot of fabric pics this week, be warned.
this is my desk. where i work. and blog. and design. and pay bills.
none of that is happening here. these piles have taken over. now you’d think i’d just move those piles, or even maybe… put them away. but they are actually works-in-progress that i am super excited about. since my desk was taken over i migrated to the coffee table and the dining table all week. i’m at the dining table now, in case you were wondering.
good news: the piles have now been cut up into little piles of potential and my desk is looking a little more welcoming.
lily is taking a tae-kwon-do class at school and was teaching silas x-blocks and other cute things. someone will get hurt pretty soon from this stuff. guaranteed.
we had to move my shipping department out of our garage to sean’s office – boo. but its so much more spacious now – yay. i stopped by last week to drop off more products and i couldn’t help but stay awhile and organize the drawers all pretty-like. p.s. it’s cold season – do you have a travel tissue case tucked in your purse to catch the sniffles? ;)
we are a baby-wearing family. i loved wearing my babies. i vowed to carry silas in the moby until he was 16, but stopped at about 1. darn kid wanted to get out and run! i have gotten pretty good at turning a scarf into a carrier and a small blanket into a sling. mad mommy skills.
oh the anchors, the anchors! and just about the prettiest aqua fabric you have ever seen! so pretty, in fact, that i cut all of it up for products and promptly ordered more because i loved it so much!
somedays it just feels good to be the cool mom. most days i’m the “do your work” mom. this day i let silas use his tractors to “snowplow” through the shaving cream. super easy cleanup and he smelled so manly all day – bonus!
i spy a parking garage on my coffee table.
i am so nearly out of posies in my shop (oops!) so i had a late night working on some for bloom bags. on that note, i am hoping to list a huge pile of bags some time today – yay!
i had so much fun working on our valentine’s day decorates this week with the kids!
i am slowly weaning myself off of the south beach diet, moving slowly into the last phase. i actually didn’t mind the first 2 phases much. i made whole wheat pancakes and added bananas, peanut butter and sugar free syrup. so yum! and this morning i had bran muffins with apples baked inside – yummy!
and again, buying more fabric. the second fabric from the top, the one you can hardly see at all, is going to be made into this.
lots and lots and lots of late nights this week. but i try mixing it up and moving from the dining table to the coffee table in front of the fireplace. much cozier!
the boy climbs in our bed every morning at about 6 or so and falls back asleep. he’s my favorite thing to wake up to, so sleepy and snuggly.
i was spread across the table again working on pairing up fabrics for new posy pin sets, and checking out the links to this week’s wiww. holy cow thats a lot of linkers! and no, i no longer hand cut all my flowers. i have a custom die made for a gigantic die cutting machine. i used to do them all by hand, but tendinitis started to set in a freaked me out for a bit when i was in so much pain i couldn’t even type, so i had to make some adjustments. some very expensive adjustments at that!
ok, thats it! have a great weekend friends!
oh, if you haven’t signed up for my newsletter yet, you better do so or you’ll be sad really soon… ;)
