keepin busy

Hey all!

So, I’ve been MIA for a little while. Nothing big, just a very full, crazy life.  Want to see some of what I’ve been up to?

Frist off, remember that bag I made?

Well, I was hired to make three more.

Yup. People actually paid me to make bags.  Now, two of those . . .

I DID NOT PICK THE FABRICS!!!!

And they are not at all what I would have chosen. But, my friend wanted them, and so, there you go.

But that last one,

I do like.

I got to pick it out, and it was very fun! (and Em, I’ll try to stick it in the mail soon!)

Next up, I’ve been working on a website! Hah! like I have a clue how to do a website!  But I DO know how to blog.  I have a couple of friends who own a craft business.  They wanted a blog type website so people could see all they offer.

(aren’t those gourds so fun!)

Only problem – it was a Wordpress blog.

I know, EVERYONE says wordpress is the place to be if you want to grow a business, and it’s so much better, and blah blah blah. But let me tell you – it’s freakn’ annoying to use! I can’t find anything, adding pictures was a nightmare, and it was literally taking me over an hour to do a single post.

So instead, I spent 5 hours figuring out how to change it over to blogger. It’s not an easy process! But I finally got it to work! (If anyone wants details for how I did this, just email me). I still have a lot of work to do on it, but at least now I CAN work on it!

Then, I’m in charge of a big progressive dinner for the ladies at my church this Thursday. That’s been another HUGE time spender. I think it’s going to be awesome. . . as long as people actually show up.  Everyone is out of town this week! What’s up with that! But, I’m very excited about it, and I’ll be sure to post pictures when we’re done!

So that’s my life right now (along with being a mom and cleaning and helping my sister’s kids out and digging up 239473 lbs of lava rocks and planting and all that!)

What are you up to?
