My first order!!!
Progress takes a little bit of work! Or a lot of work, but it's SO worth it. I love making something that people like, and want. I like the interaction I've gotten with different crafy women, across the country (one even in Australia) through the mom blogging networks. I love seeing that people are still making things with their hands and that arts like crochet and crafting will not go away. In fact, it seems like the recession has helped handmade arts and crafts.
When I made the first board for my son's room after he was born, I never imagined that a year and a half later I'd have my boards on a website and about 20 or so stacked up on my kitchen table and in a closet. I never thought I'd be entering in a craft show at all. It's so exciting and FUN!!! It's also something my husband is enjoying helping me with. Since he's home because he's injured and waiting for surgery to be scheduled, the boards and projects have given him something to do, also, because he can't do much of anything until his surgery and therapy are completed.
I like working at something while I am able to also run around after my son, watch tv, do houshold work, or whatever I need to do. I like that my husband is involved, even my son. His job mainly seems to be that he gets to unroll all of the ribbon spools, or make me get up to chase him, but that's why I wanted something like this to do as a job (outside of the realm of mommy). It's the best of both worlds...even if it did take me about two years, and a very NEGATIVE experience trying to re-enter the workforce after three years.
As far as what's new, I have gotten a Halloween board done, and made the two for my friend from the mom's group. I am going to spend the better part of the day on the boards and really hope to get a pillow or two done today. I've not been feeling particularly well, it comes and goes, but everyone is sick right now, so, I guess it's just going around. (And back around in this house it seems).
I will post pictures of my new boards and whatever else I manage to finish throughout the day.
