Life is Full

If I post a picture of Springtime, surely that means it will come, right??
Here's to hoping!

I hope this post finds you well. I have had quite a busy few months, hence no time to post, or really even think about posting. I had eye surgery; that was a a big moment in my life. I feel like one of these days, I will give a detailed blog post about it. It is on that never-ending list of things I want to do.

But life is full, I am not too busy, is full, as discussed with a dear friend. We don't complain about life being too busy, we just look at it like Life is Full, and we are grateful for that.

Wishing you all the best!

Springtime Ready

Winter has barely started, and I have the full on winter blues. So, to combat that, I have been trying to fill my shop with springtime. Like this vase HERE. Are you all ready for spring as much as I am??

I am very careful when expanding into selling on other websites. I want them to be user friendly to me as a seller, but I also want the customer to have a good experience as well. Currently, I sell on Etsy, Brika, Bourbon and Boots, Scoutmob, and now, I am a proud seller on Houzz.
Remodeling and Home Design
Houzz is a different kind of website. You will get what I mean the very second you click on it. I have been super impressed with the level of service by the employees of Houzz. I have been very happy as a seller on my current websites, and so far, it looks like that trend will continue with Houzz!

New in 2015

With 11 days left in 2014, I am looking forward to 2015. I have been working on my "what I would like to accomplish" list. One of them is to more regularly introduce new items into my shop.

I probably averaged 1 new item a month in 2014, if I were to guess, I know it felt mostly like I was skating by with re-circulating old stock.

And while, I wouldn't re-list items I no longer felt passionate about keeping in my shop; I do know that it is not smart business practice, and I wouldn't attract new customers, if I wasn't creating new work. So, I want to make that a priority as I move forward.

The vase above (HERE) is the first in my Farm Animal Series I am working on for 2015. I hope to have all of the animals completed and listed by the end of February.

I am breathing a sigh of relief that the holiday rush is over and I am going to enjoy the holidays with my family.

I wish you all Happy Holidays and Peace and Love in the New Year.

Not nearly summer...but..

....I am already dreaming of it!

And obviously it is nearing Christmas, so I should NOT be feeling this way, but I can't help it. I am ready for flip flops and the sound of ocean waves.

This is especially strange coming from my mouth, as I do love Christmas: the traditions, being with friends and family. And tonight, we are taking the girls to see Rudolph onstage...I am excited about it...

but.. can we move the show to the beach?

Bobby took this week off from work. The girls are out of school until December 8th, they are in year round school here, which is essentially 9 weeks in, 3 weeks out, throughout the entire year.

We had originally planned to take a vacation somewhere, but ultimately we decided on hanging out here, doing day trips, getting things done on the seemingly never-ending list we have for what needs to be done around the house.

Here we are at a State Park called Raven Rock.
What a place of beauty, a great hike, the perfect autumn outing.

And it has been a great week. I think we will be planning more staycations in our future!

There is no place like home!
