Thanks for all the nice comments about my bake sale cookies. I'm totally over it and feeling guilty for whining. It was nice to have you commiserate with me! If you've ever sold your creative work, you've probably been there.
This weekend was much better. I spent all day Saturday decorating cookies for a wedding reception. The reception is this coming weekend (the 15th) and I'll be making cupcakes for them too. So, I'll be taking this Friday off to get that done. I'll show you the pictures when the whole sha-bang is ready to go.
Yesterday was spent in my craft room. I'm trying to get a few things made for a craft show that I do every November. I have a thing for hot pads in the shape of something with embroidery and stuff (if that makes any sense). My mom found some fun hot pad patterns she had stashed away from the '70s and I couldn't wait to adapt them. The cupcake potholder in the photo was one of the patterns.
I also spent a little time staging some photos of some things I need to get listed in my etsy shop. My poor little etsy shop has been badly neglected lately. I'm hoping to spend some more time there this month getting new things listed and hopefully designing some new fun things to sell. We'll see…
Truthfully… I feel like lots of things have been neglected around here. I stayed up way too late last night trying to get caught up then woke up at 4:00 a.m. thinking about every thing that I need to get done. Late summer through Christmas tends to be that way. Way too many things I want to do and not enough time. Not looking for any sympathy though… I don't have to sew cupcake potholders, write blog posts, list stuff in my etsy store, shop for fabric to use for photo staging, go junking with friends, make new potholder patterns, design new recipe cards, paint my hallway, blah blah blah… I just really, really want too! Ohhh woe is me…
Hope you are finding time for all of your projects! Take care!
