Gearing Up

It's going to be a busy week. We have a lot going on at work, and I am just treading above water at this point. I'm hoping I can get through the week without incident.  I thoroughly enjoyed this 3 day weekend, and am quite sad that it has to end. 

School starts tomorrow, Joe is ironing new school clothes as I type this, getting ready for his first day back. I remember those days, stomach jitters, excitement for the new outfit, anticipation of seeing my friends again, and meeting the new teachers.

I liked school as a kid, I just didn't do very well. I was a pretty consistent C student, unless it had to do with music or art, which I completely excelled.  Anyway, enough of that tangent. I did create a few things today and they are now available in my Big Cartel shop. Be prepared, you'll start seeing pieces disappear from the Etsy shop, so if you wanted something, it's wise if you grab it now.


  1. I imagine that you are transitioning to the Big Cartel shop from Etsy? It is sooo expensive to have an Etsy shop. I had almost $100 worth of fees between my two shops last month! Love the new pieces! Good Luck!!

  2. Love 'em all!! Good fortune and much success to you with your new shop

  3. What a sweet little owl on on the first bracelet. All of the pieces are wonderful. I wasn't a great student either, it has always bothered me because I think that school doesn't always tap into individuals best assets unless your are a A student. I haven't heard of the big cartel shop until you posted something, what is the scoop. I have actually been thinking about starting a shop on esty is this a better alternative?


  4. Great pieces. I hope your week is a good one.

  5. Wow! ThatOwl City bracelet is marvellous!! =O <3<3<3 :)

    Wonderful pieces -- you have such a knack for color.

    As for first day of school craziness, I tried to blog about it to get it out of my system, but I think this whole week is going to be full of ups and downs for us ...

  7. Love the pieces! Good luck with the shop!

  8. do tell- why are you leaving etsy? why are you only doing big cartel? what is big cartel?
    love the pieces as always. gonna go check out your big cartel after i see how many times i can type big cartel in one comment.

  9. The pieces are so unique! I really find this so beautiful! Thanks for sharing. Like it!

  10. Love the owls...they are my daughter and sister's favorite accessory this summer and fall - just so fun. And in nature I have been hearing them a lot lately - such a wonderful animal!!
    Beautiful pieces as always!
