Exciting new ventures

Lucy and I are opening an Etsy shop together. We'll be selling an amalgam of things that showcase both of us to the best of our abilities, and hope to have lots of fun with it. I'm going to keep the details of everything we want to see in our shop under wraps, but suffice it to say, we're VERY excited and now VERY busy prepping for our self-imposed launch date of Aug 31st. Watch here for more info to come!

Busy Lady

Yesterday, Jake had a friend over for brunch, so I was cooking my fanny off starting at 6:30 am!

Today, I think I'll go to the LYS and try to see if I can't enjoy some knit time there.

At some point this weekend, I need to book three round trip tickets to Pennsylvania (yay for red-eye cross country flights when traveling with a 4 and 6 year old!) And can I just take this opportunity to say what pros my girls are with flying? Their first flight was in December, when we moved to Vegas, and from that very first flight my girls can navigate through baggage check, security, and find their way to a gate with relative ease. They impress me.

Then will start the epic list making, packing and repacking, and triple checking. That will pretty well take up the entire two to three weeks between now and the time we go.

The ruffled apron I talked about a couple of posts back is done, and look how cute it turned out!
