Anticipation

Most of my family is coming into town this week. My brothers and my SILs, and two nieces are arriving in just a couple of days! Yip!!

I spent the weekend cleaning and PUTTING THINGS AWAY. Aside from the rugs, which were really dirty and got cleaned with a rented carpet cleaner (what a great idea), I spent a lot of time just  putting things away.

Oh, my car was a disaster, too. Significant dogginess in the back seat. A car wash in town has free vacuums, which I used for about 20 minutes. I even cleaned out my trunk, anticipating hauling fam around for their visit. It's nice to have the outside of the car clean as well.

I made two new styles, a new necklace and a new bracelet, and I really like them. The bracelet uses old buttons mixed with my clay tiles and I really like how those turned out. I'm going to redo all of my prices in my Etsy shop (i.e. lower them a bit, and have all the pieces sit somewhere on a continuum of pricing), and that will take some time, too. But it's all good. I like what I'm doing there.

Gotta start the day.

  2. What a busy, and fun, time; I hope the visit with family is grand! Love what you're doing with your Etsy shop; very exciting.

    Oh, and I'm glad you liked the botany blog; I had the sneaking suspicion that someone using 'physaria' just might. =)
