Takin' It Easy

TGIF everyone! This week has been rough as all of us have been sick, my son throwing up 3 seperate times in massive amounts:( He is in good spirits but still no appetite yet but I make sure he is drinking plenty of liquids.

I'm also falling so behind at work which means I have to cut back on my social networking during work hours (hopefully my boss won't stumble upon reading this!). Wouldn't it be nice to be one of those "quit your dayjob" success stories on Etsy! My shop is doing pretty decent but it doesn't pay the bills and I can't afford to lose my day job because I have a family to support. Plus I need to get more sleep! I am usually on the computer late at night because that is the only time I have to myself. So basically I need to self discipline myself and create a strict schedule during the week or else I am going to have a major breakdown *SIGH*

This weekend I am going to try and learn how to make wood chip pendants:) I saw this feature on my husband's MAKE magazine on how to make wood chip buttons so I am going to use that as a guide. I wonder where I can legally chop down a branch? The ones I have on my tree at home are still a bit small.


  1. Cute kitty photo! ^.^

    I hope your son feels better and you were able to catch up on your sleep. Please do share if your wood chip pendant experiment is successful!!

  2. I hope you all feel better soon! Good luck with the craft experiment. :)

  3. Thanks guys:) I actually got my son's stomach flu yesterday and ended up sleeping 12 hours last night! Then it rained all day today so wood chip pendant is gonna have to wait for a little while...

  4. What a cute picture!
    Hope this week is going better for ys
