Random Rambling

Once again randomly rambling with Brooke - and happy to say its not from Kansas City again!!


************


My dear friend’s 5 month old nephew passed away last night.  It was very sudden – please say a prayer for my friend, her sister, and her family.  They have all already been through so much this past year – he was such a light in their lives, my heart is breaking for them. 

************

We are once again getting ready for the Providence Open Market.  We had actually planned to go last weekend as unreserved (basically show up and hope there is space) late last week we changed our minds…I am glad we did – there was horrible rain all day Saturday and they actually ended up cancelling the market since the weather was so bad.  I am really hoping for a gorgeous day on Saturday – We have some new displays to put up and a ton of new products, I’m pretty excited.  It is exhausting getting ready for these shows (I have been up until at least 1am every night this week) but they are so much fun and so worth it.   Next Saturday will be our last show until next spring (I think).  Now I just need to get pictures of everything so I can post it all to my Etsy shop.  I really would like to take the winter to focus on advertising and getting my Etsy really going.   It is so hard to get decent pictures and figure out what to write up when I post my products.

I am really looking forward to this break between shows – I have a few new things that I really want to work on that I haven’t had the time to do and I really need to work with the embroidery  machine – I still don’t have the process down and have yet to produce something of quality (but I’m getting there!!)

I am thrilled that I once again (and hopefully for the last time) re-organized my sewing room last night.  Now that cable is gone – we took the TV out of that room – I can’t get over all the space I have now – its wonderful!!  See…






************

Speaking of cable – its gone and I am happy.  We definitely didn’t miss it last night…well hubby did once the boys went to bed and I was working.  I told him its time for him to pick up a hobby.  He already reads a lot, but he was looking for something else.  I told him if he wanted I could find him something to do (ie laundry, dishes, start building my kitchen shelves) but he didn’t like my ideas

************

On another crafty note…I am hoping to host a bag party at my friend’s house sometime soon.  The plan is to take samples of the bags and (possibly) aprons I make, and let the guests pick out what style and fabric they want.   I really think it could be a lot of fun…what do you think?  Would you be into a party like that?

So now I am off...time to sew - and I am happy to do sew in my newly organized room!!

  1. My sewing space is a cluttered corner of the living room now! It has basically taken over the living room actually! I have fabric every where! I haven't watched TV all week either and I really haven't missed it. :o)

  2. Ok, you and Kameron are making me look bad! I can't go a day without my TV!!! At least I can shut it off while Aidan's awake, but it's TV during naps and TV during nighttime sleep. Ugh. I need to cut the cord!!!

    Love your work room!

  4. Wonderful about organizing space that is important to you. It feels good. But I am so sorry about your friend. It's hard to fathom and makes my heart hurt!

  5. I don't even have a sewing space! Your space looks great, and I think I could even be productive in a space like that :) Happy sewing. Oh, and yes, I'd attend a party like that for sure.

  6. Randomness always makes for a good post. Great time to get your craft room in order. Right before the holidays!

    I also saw the news about your friend's son. How truly terrible. I am so, so sorry.

  7. so sorry for your friend . . .
    that is cool you do these shows - my hubbie keeps telling me to do one for my scrapbooks - but I would hate to sit there ALL day and not sell anything. Plus how do your kids do without you all day (and who watches your table if you have to tinkle?)

  9. T - Thanks!!! as for the shows - it is tough when no one buys. I really love what I make (that's why I make it) and I take it kind of personally. It is mostly fun though and doing it with Kameron means if I had to I could...ummm....go...although apparently I can {not} go all day :) As for the kids, hubby takes them to his mother's house where they get delightfully doted on all day long, and come home more exhausted than me!!
