Messy, messy

So... I've been super busy lately. Helping my son learn his multiplication tables, bandaging his soccer injuries, and trying to keep my little daughter entertained by going bike riding and exploring with her. And then I'm sneaking in some community meetings at the same time - and all the while our house is being dismantled around me while my husband and a friend do some work painting and renovating. It's exhausting but interesting!
At night I come up to my studio to try and relax but I end up only making a bigger mess!

Here's some of what I've been working on though.Some of it is already for sale in my Etsy shop or will be soon!


And here's the cushy chair that I never get to sleep in...

I like all the button things. Is that another new business card- the one with the button and material on it ? I like that one, so colorful ! Hey, did I leave my scrunchies over at your house ??

I love all your new items on Etsy. And I love seeing you share your home pictures. Love that.

And I think I need a fabric pin you're working. Just saw it's not in the shop yet.

I got your package yesterday and was thrilled. You do such beautiful work. And thank you so much for the bonus earrings...beautiful too!
I loved reading this last post. You're doing everything right by putting your son's projects and your little daughter's bike rides above a perfectly clean studio. Way to go mom! : )

I haven't been blogging. My sewing machine & 2 tables are totally covered with fabrics & stamping mess..so I'm glad to hear that you are having a similiar week :) .
In these next 4 days, my kids have 2 overnights, 1 class breakfast & 2 birthday parties - all of which I'm also involved. Thank goodness that all mothers are good at ,multi-tasking!
