Peek A Boo
Hey everyone! I had a hankering to do some writing, so I'm stopping in to say hello! I've had a pretty fun weekend so far, and even more fun on the way tomorrow as we have a holiday!! I LOVE LONG WEEKENDS! I cannot stress this enough... It's snowing, our kitchen is currently in shambles due to renos, and I haven't been to the gym all week, but I'm not letting any of that get to me, because I can enjoy a Monday free from work! For those of you who don't know, tomorrow is Family Day. A made up holiday to appease the winter blahs. But any excuse to hang out with my family is fine with me!
I woke up early this morning and cleaned up my studio and organized by Etsy stuff. I cannot tell you how much better I feel now that that is done! I am planning on doing a huge Etsy update this week, since I didn't get around to it last week. Holding down and full time job, and a house and a workout routine is making it hard for me to spend time on the things I love, like this blog, and my shop and my crafts. I don't know why I thought it would be easy juggling it all, but I try everyday to make it all work. Maybe one day I'll get the hang of it.
Since my work space was all clean, I decided to tackle my HUGE pile of alterations, and mending. I had shirts to fix for the mister, pants and dresses to hem for myself, and some odds and ends to mend. Slowly but surely I am making my way through it. Clayton brought Bon Iver home for me on Friday and I have been listening to it all weekend, on a loop. It has made the things I've been putting off so much easier today!
The Indie E-conference wrapped up this week, and I'm both a little intimidated and eager to continue blogging. The conference was very informative, but stirred up a lot of self doubt. So I am working on proving myself wrong and am aiming towards accomplishing my style blogger goals. In the next couple of weeks I plan on teaching myself some basic HTML, and improving on my photography skills. This past Wednesday I figured out how to use the self timer on my camera. Something I've been meaning to do for a while. Hopefully you will all be witness to a blog makeover in the near future. I have an idea and am excited to try and execute it!
Hopefully you all have a wonderful Monday and if you are celebrating Family Day tomorrow, hope you enjoy a snowy day in with wonderful people and a hot beverage!
