I have been crazy-busy this week….don’t you hate when people say that?! Everyone is busy. Or if they really want to make it seem like they are busier than you are, they call it way-crazy-busy or super-crazy-busy.
However I have had a lot on the go and some unexpected little snags (can I post officially that I Hate Revenue Canada without them seeing it?) that have challenged my patience. I have had to do my square breathing methods more than once this week!
My girls have been participating at Peak Invitational dance competition all week, which I have been enjoying (something I am working on…*don’t get stressed out, its fun*). However, my hubby is away this week so meal coordination and getting the girls to different locations and different times, hair and makeup, plus doing my own work has been a challenge. So I have been reminding myself of Happy Things and blessings that I have in my life.
1. I am totally jazzed about the new Stella & Dot Spring Collection. I have been selling S&D for a long time (this is my 6th Spring Season #oldtimer) so I usually don’t get too excited about the jewels anymore, but the colours in this collection are really my style. I love the Rory necklace.
2. My girls love dance and are really good at it. I love seeing their growth in fitness, flexibility and their love of music.
3. I have been diligently working on our Upcycling Projects for OUR NEW ETSY SHOP coming soon! I have always had an affinity for upcycling….perhaps because we have a small home and I am always getting rid of stuff. So it is nice to be able to ReUse and RePurpose things into different uses. I had this poncho made for me by an artisan a few years ago and I still love it. This is part of my inspiration.
Chloe is wearing one of my prototypes that I created last week to school today. We are seeing how it wears, if she likes the bulk of it and so on. I have many other pieces in various stations of production. I love posting photos of items on Facebook to get your Feedback too! If you want to place any comments below, that’s cool too *hint*!
And I am also working on some prototypes for Upcycling dance costumes! I know many people like me who have over 50-60+ costumes (!) hanging in the basement just begging to be re-used. You will have to stay tuned to see how these projects turn out.
And of course, Chloe’s Knot Tangled bracelets, which she is continuing to plug away on….
4. And I am meeting with our accountant next week – so my Tax-hell-receipt sorting will be over. Something to be VERY HAPPY about!!!
And here is the trailer for his new movie. Oh yea!
Cheers and Happy Friday!
