Goodness, how did we get 13 days into January?! Half gone already, I can hardly believe it. And what have I been up to? Well, I decided to put some banner kits together for the etsy shop. I spent the early afternoon
catching up on Downton Abbey, (Oh how I love that show!) while I cut out hearts and leaves and yo-yos at the dining room table and sipped tea from a cute new mug I picked up at Homegoods.
I'm a sucker for polka dots and roses.
I am just getting ready to list the kits and they will be in the shop in plenty of time to decorate for Valentines day. They are so simple to put together and I am including everything you need. Some bits of my vintage feed sack stash make up the smaller colored hearts in some of the kits. I know they will go to good homes:>)
I have decided that I need to make stocking the shop a priority in hopes that I can quit my job and come home. It's where my heart is. It's time to follow my dreams. I've always been such a chicken about dream following. It usually means taking some risks, and I have never been a risk taker. I like to know exactly what is coming down the pike but that's a bit of an illusion isn't it? We never really know.
In other news, I spent my day off Friday running errands, working on the kits and then Victoria and I went to see Les Miserable at the movies. Loved it. Sure, it has some pretty sad and heavy stuff in it, but the performances were wonderful and the story was beautiful. I highly recommend it. It's a good thing I didn't cry, Victoria needed all my tissues.
Seen any good movies lately?
