Arts and Crafts

I am slowly starting to find my school groove again. I officially have 2 mornings a week all to myself. I would be lying if I said that I am already completely at ease and at peace with the quietness of the house. Even though I fill that time by taking care of some of the things I find challenging to do with 2 kids under my feet, I can feel their absence and it pains me a little. I don't like missing so much of their day, but it is fun hearing them talk about what they did at school. They are growing up, learning on their own, and I am just so proud.

I have a handful of arts and crafts projects waiting for me. Some of it has to do with crafty things that I have been wanting to do around the house. The girls have a toybox that has turned into an eye sore with all of the wear and tear on it, so it is just begging for a new coat of paint. I also have a bookshelf that needs a makeover.

I also have so many plans for my Etsy Shop and I can't wait to jump in with two feet. This vase, the first of a new line I created, by etching a word into the stucco, sold this morning.

I am so grateful for the sale, but to further that, my day was really made because of the nice words that the customer told me, complimenting my work. It really means a lot. I tell you. I love making these vases. LOVE it. And to think that other people are appreciating it. It is beyond words.

That's awesome! I love your new vase and the photography is wonderful! You will get used to having some "me" time and will grow to appreciate it (even though you miss your little ones) I'm sure. Now, get to work on all those projects!
