Back to back

December 12, 2009

There has been a sudden surge of visitors to my site… a whopping 12 people in one day! I guess people are starting to write their 101 Lists and getting referred to mine (?). My magnets are now for sale on my etsy shop – I am quite proud of myself for getting them up there! (see below for photos) I delayed and delayed and then just jumped in. Whew! I am going to make a bunch more for knitters again, too. After the Christmas rush of making presents for the kids.

I am very aware of this being one year since my back went out. I am thankful for where I am at, but also a little nervous of the anniversary. I think that’s because it’s the busiest time of the year, and the most stressful… I want to maintain my healthy back!! There have been ups and downs during the year, but things are getting better overall. I am not back to where I was before last Christmas, but I think this is a positive thing – I am able to listen to my body now and slow down when I need to.

Sketchbook Exchange

November 24, 2009

I think the idea of a sketchbook exchange is so intriguing and I would love to try this… is there anyone out there who would like to join me in this? We would all get a new sketchbook, fill out a few pages and send it to the next person on the list. It would eventually get back to the original owner. Any takers?

We went to the annual school fair and it was insane, again! But also fun. I worked in the kitchen window at lunchtime – got to scream soup orders! I was running on adrenaline all day.

My friend was going to put my magnets on her table but she called last night to tell me that she didn’t have much room for them. She ended up only putting about 6 on her table. I gave her about 60 magnets and a display stand but she didn’t use it. In my opinion they would have fit fine, but I didn’t feel like I could ask her to put it up, since it was her table. I will definitely be getting my own table next year. I was quite disappointed as I was really pleased with how they turned out and I thought they would sell well…if they were displayed well. Oh WELL!

Happy Birthday to Me!

November 11, 2009

As my grandfather used to say… I am now in my 38th year.

The kids are home from school this week. We made white cupcakes yesterday and are going to make buttercream frosting today. Yum! And I am going dancing tonight.

…Here I am eating my cupcake with the kids! My wonderful friend Mandy made me this shirt and sent me this beautiful necklace.

Happy Hallowe’en!
