After taking a break from blogging to deal with life, I’m back. A little worse for the wear, but I’m here!
First, an update: My aunt passed away Thursday before last, and her memorial is this weekend. It will be held at the location my aunt and her husband were married, and we’re doing a casual potluck. I’m really glad, too, because, like my aunt, I am not a fan of the “wear black and a somber expression” tradition. In the midst of all of this, though, I had to take my mom to the ER for chest pains and shortness of breath. Luckily, I guess, we were already at the hospital for a different test. She was admitted and stayed for four days before being released yesterday. We’re both exhausted, but the hope the doctors and nurses gave her for recovery is fantastic. The doctor was able to manage meds that should have been managed a long time ago by her primary care doc, and she’s already feeling better than she was before she went into the hospital.
Needless to say, we haven’t had time to make much for the etsy shops. I was able to take some pictures of a few little guys that need to be listed today, though! (Etsy’s site is down, so I’m waiting patiently, looking up youtube videos and blog posts …)
So far, these googly fuzzballs are being turned into earrings, but I’d like to see what they look like on bracelets and necklaces.
Also, some exciting news! The etsy team we’re involved in, Etsy817, is hosting a holiday craft show called Handmade Holidays this December in Arlington, TX!
Hope you’re all having a stress-free week as summer winds down and all the kids and teachers go back to that crazy thing called school!
Share the Love,
