Weekend alone

Well this weekend I was all by myself. I had to work on Saturday and it was my niece's birthday this weekend. My husband made the 4 hour trek with the children to my sister's house. It was a very strange feeling when everyone left. It was the first time being home without anyone. My mission this weekend was to clean my house. I started on Friday night, with the help of my girlfriend. We were optimistic that if we worked until about midnight the whole house would be clean. We managed to clean the upstairs. It was very clean though. Thanks for all the help Char. So today I woke up to try and finish the job we started. I steam cleaned my carpets, got on my hands and knees and scrubbed my floors. Most of my house is now sparkling. I only have to finish the basement now. The basement includes my studio, which of course is too small for all of my crafts. I need more space for all of my fabric and ribbons. I have a pile of new fabric that needs to be washed so it can be made into some wonderful creation. Hopefully I will have it completed by next week. Even though I did not get much me time this weekend it was so worth it to have a sparkling house. No more fingerprints on walls and stains on floors.

My New Blog, My New Website

Well after fighting it I have finally set up a website. It was a little daunting to me at first, but it is almost complete! check it out! I am really excited about this new way of selling my handmade wares. I love to create new outfits and this is an excellent way to stay in touch with my customers. Previously my items have been sold by word of mouth, and some boutique stores. I am very excited about my customers being able to see what is new and for them to be able to purchase my items from the comfort of their own home. I hope to be adding more items to might site soon and have a grand opening as well. Be sure to check back as I will be posting a grand opening coupon code. My goals for this blog are to get some tutorials up, and to have a few competitions as well. Thanks for letting me share.
