I’m seriously getting a smidge overwhelmed. I’ve got a lot going on and yet, I’m trying to slow down. Now, there’s an oxymoron. (more emphasis on moron!)
I started out this week oversleeping an hour Monday morning. My lil D’ just did not want to sleep! He argued with me til 1 a.m. about going to bed. Finally, I made him lay down with me.
My Tuesday was pretty awesome. I got a freakin’ awesome haircut. I went from this:
It’s my summer hair. I LOVE it!
I have tons of Etsy orders and custom orders rolling in, all the while trying to find a retail store and actually do some real work at my day job. Currently, building a website and websites are tedious…at the same time, participating in other work projects. AND while on my breaks, cramming it some yarntastic time. I will be able to get some today cuz my oldest has a doctor appointment and that is an epic wait time for a 15 minute time slot. Ridiculous…In any case, there isn’t a moment my hands are idle unless I’m sleeping. Tonight we are packing up for a weekend away at one of my most favorite events ever with some of my favorite people. No work shall ensue but lots of yarny time during the drive!
Anyway, every weekend this month is booked with family things to do. And with family things to do during the day means that there are long nights in the craftmanic room. I fell asleep twice doing work research while my system was updating and while printing. Then last night, I MAJORLY F’d up some t-shirts. I shut down the press earlier than normal. Then I decided to crochet for a break til 2 a.m. these super cute things for an order. (get the FREE pattern by Whistle & Ivy)
I’m not quite happy with the sizing. They look quite small. Only two of my fingers fit inside and after looking at a picture of the intended, there’s a slight perspective warp on her feet or she really just has bigger baby feets…I’ll be making a bigger pair as well. The pattern was easy enough to follow; my only complaint is that there weren’t any stitch counts after each round.
OOOoo!! So I went to A.C.Moore’s to get more t-shirts for the order I jacked up and found a display for Knit for Kids!!! There’s a drop off point there and I got some pretty yarn and free patterns for some goods to donate. As if I had more time to do more stuff, I am stoked to be able to donate something for kids in need. I donate a lot of stuff as it is surprisingly, just love the idea of somewhere some child is going to wear a knitwear I made with appreciation, unlike my own baby. He could care less and my oldest doesn’t keep track of any of his stuff. I have made him several hats and they have been M.I.A. for I don’t know how long.
Oh, man! I just realized that I have an hour before I leave work and I have several things to do yet!! I have this little notebook of all my projects to do plus follow up on other non-craft related things to do. So many things!! Tomorrow, I hope to check out some retail space but I don’t think that is going to be what I’m after, then drop off the shirts and then roll off to my fun weekend away.
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
Stay crafty, my friends!
