On the crafting front, however, I think I am finally getting into the etsy thing. I created my very first treasury the other day, and it was so fun to feature some of my favorite shops, as well as read all the sweet comments that were posted.
And I was happy to discover that one of my totes made it to the front page in this gorgeous treasury last week:
Then I tried out the fabulous reversible Emmeline apron pattern by Montessori by Hand for a Mother's Day apron swap. I got lots of suggestions/requests for me to make a sundress in this style, so one of these days when I'm feeling clever and brave enough, I may just tackle that task. In any case, here is the apron, in Amy Butler's Midwest Modern fabrics.
Things are picking up now that it's May: the end of the school year approaches, custom orders are rolling in, and a crate of pear pincushion-sized boxes will be arriving on my doorstep tomorrow so I need to get sewing!
I've also spent a bit of time planning out some new designs, which I would like to try out soon. Barring any more adventures with The Money Pit, that is.
Happy crafting and house-not-self-destructing vibes to everyone!
