Wow, what a sad turn of events. It’s been months upon months since I’ve updated here. I feel sad about my little blog. The thing is, we’ve had so much going on here, I haven’t had the time to do any sort of crafting in a long time! School is starting up next week so I might have some more time to myself, but I’m still not sure since I’ve recently taken on a new project. (big surprise, right? If it’s not a craft, it’s at least a project of some sort)
It’s no secret I am an entrepreneur. I love being in business for myself. Honestly, if I had a choice between being behind a desk making money for and taking orders from someone else, or taking a chance and working for myself doing what *I* want, even though it may take a while to see a harvest, I will choose that any day. I am a carefree spirit. I can’t be pinned down with a 9-5 job. ha! So after Booty Parlor closed the doors to the direct sales department, I decided it was time to stop going the independent consultant and take a chance and do it all myself. Nothing wrong with direct sales, I just didn’t want to keep doing that.
My new venture combines my love of all things entrepreneurial with my appreciation for healthier, cleaner living.
On my site you will find top of the line juicers, grain mills, yogurt makers, sprouters, vermicomposting bins, urban growing bins and lots more to come! If it sounds at all interesting to you, I’d appreciate your visit. I’ve also got another blog connected to the store where I will post healthy recipes and tips for sustainable gardening. (It’s still in its infancy, so bear with me) Consider following me on twitter and facebook as well!
I’m not giving up on this blog. I do love it here. It just may be a while before I can post anything for a while. I hope you’ll stick around!
Hey ladies! (I just assume there aren’t any men who read this blog…)
I know I haven’t been on in a couple days with a craft, but I wanted to stop in and show you what I’ve been up to. I have started yet another blog. If you’d like to check it out, you can visit it at 31 Before 31.
I’ve decided it’s time to finally tackle all the things I’ve had on my “to-do” goal list, so I’ve set a timeline for some of them. Join me in my journey as I document my experiences. I hope to learn a thing or two, and maybe inspire some of you to get to those things maybe you’ve been putting off for “someday”.
I’ll still be posting here, obviously. I could never abandon my one true love of crafting. In fact, I’ve just made a trip to Hobby Lobby so I will hopefully have some things to share soon!
*tear* Today was the first day of kindergarten for my baby.
She’s such a sassy pants.
Right now, it’s 11:00 and the house is so quiet and peaceful. I had plans of doing all sorts of things today, and being super productive, but I’ve put them on the back burner. Instead, I’m enjoying the silence. I’ll get to work on that list tomorrow.
I really thought I’d cry, or have a hard time taking Abby to school, but surprisingly it wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be. I think maybe the last two years of pre-k helped alleviate any of that “my baby is growing up” sadness. She was pretty nervous, though. As we walked from the car to the school, she was hanging back a bit. I had to keep trying to hurry her along. She was also very quiet, which is quite unlike her. I think she’ll be fine, though. When we got to the class, there was another boy from her pre-k class, so at least she will know someone. Besides, once she settles in, she’ll have a great time.
Joss started school today too. This will be the first year they will go to the same school! She’s a big 2nd grader now.
All last night and this morning, Joss did the big sister thing and told Abby about all the things she would do today. She was very protective of her and really reassured her. It was pretty cute.
Look at the apprehension on Abby’s usually smiling face.
They even held hands walking up to the school for a while.
Now I wait. I am excited to hear how both of their first days went.
