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.
