Nathan, Emme, and I are preparing to make the 12 hour trip to Wilmer Minnisota. We will be gone from Thursday thru Monday. Our neighbors are kind enough to care for our house while we are gone. We are going up there to help Nate's grandparents finishing moving out of the house they have lived in for over 40 years. They are no longer able to care for the house. Nate has such a great family and I love spending time with his grandparents. We are so excited to make this trip and on the other hand we are dreading the 12 hour drive with 5 year old Emme. If we didn't take her they would be so disappointed though. I am sure we will come home with items that they no longer want or don't have room for in their new apartment.
While we are gone I will be unable to manage our etsy store. I added a couple new items this evening and will try to add a few more before we leave. I really need to get some hairbows made to place on etsy. I just haven't found the time or the energy to make them yet. I think that once I get some made they will be a hot seller. I have made some vintage windows with vinyl on them. One of the windows is a chandelier with rinestones.... it's really awesome. The other one is a kitchen inspired window with silverware and scrolls. I will take pictures and post them tomorrow.
I really wish I could get feedback as to what people would like to see in our etsy shop.
As I mentioned in a prior post $5.00 of every sale is donated directly to Lanie Watkins. She is 2 years old and is at St. Judes battling cancer. Once I have a lump some of $300 to send Lanie, I would like to research another child in need. Granted doing this makes some of the items we sell on etsy nonprofitable to us but soing this gives Nathan and I a sense of satisfaction that we are able to help a child and her family in need. It really has ment so much to us.
I was talking to a friend today at work and we got on the subject of poetry. I really got to thinking..... I love poetry and I used to write alot of poems. I looked some of them up today and they brought a smile to my face. Possibly in the near future one of my blogs will be one of my poems with the story behind the inspiration that I had to right the poem.
Soon I will post a tutorial on making vintage tin flags.... that is in the works.... stay tuned.
Until next time.... Be at peace with who you are and be thankful for all you have in your life.
