Happy Monday!

Wow, I took a nice break there. lol So sorry about that, I'm sure you missed me huh? heheh or not. We have been very busy. I know same old excuse every time....*Charlie Brown's teacher voice* wahwah wah wahw. I'm sure that's how I sound.
Moving on...
How was your weekend? Ours was busy and went by way too fast! We are finally caught up with orders and Albert and Ethan took a nice cat nap yesterday afternoon. It was nice. I however, thought it would be a great idea to drink some coffee before said nap time and could not sleep. I was so tired too.
I made use of that time alone in a quiet house, and made a lovely little pin cushion. It started off as a pear and ended up a strawberry. :) That's fine by me. ;) It's adorable in it's own wonky little way. I am terrible at sewing, so please no need to tell me that. ;) It kept me busy and I am practicing on becoming the world's best seamstress. haha! I kid.
Please don't let the lovely photos fool you, it is one funky little strawberry. lol In case you are wondering, I used some Amy Butler scraps and filled it with crushed almond shells (found at my local quilting shop).

Well, I am trying to become a regular blogger. I'm going to try a couple of things to get me to post regularly. Being the note/list maker that I am, I decided to post my list here. Perhaps you lovely readers will hold me accountable.

Monday-Manic Mondays- will be a quick re-cap of our weekend...such as today's post. I would like for you to know me better...hahah you might not care, so you can skip this day. lol I'll try to keep it short and sweet. I like reading about each person's blog I visit. So, I thought this might be interesting to others too.

Tuesdays-Technique Tuesdays-I will share one of my own or I'll find an interesting one online. It might be something you already know, bear with me, it might be something new to someone else...right?

Wednesday- Wordless Wednesday- wow, that's going to be pretty difficult-no words? heheh Nearly impossible for me. This will either be a picture I have taken of my day, week, month or a project. You never know!

Friday- Feature Fridays- I'll share a favorite blog, designer, artist, shop, flickr group, OUR new product or a project of the week!

Saturday- Show and tell- I'll post a project using our products. I'll try to post a list of items, brands or a template. I think this is when I will post free downloads too. I am trying to create something with every single item in our store. A bit nuts!? Sure. ;) It's a nice challenge!

Sounds like fun huh!? lol On weeks before a holiday I will create crafts leading up to it, like I did for Valentine's and St. Patty's.

Ok, off to the gym. I took a month off. Oy. Yup, gained weight. So. not. happy.

xoxo, Veronica
