so with that, I've lowered my expectations. if i blog once a year, well then, so be it...here is my 2014 post.
girls...my sweet loves...are growing too fast. soon, there will be no more little ones. thinking about it makes my heart ache, so i remind myself daily, despite my checklist, to be aware and present in the moment. in doing that, i take a lot less pictures at events, some days we look a tad disheveled, the house not so perfect.
reaggie is in pre-school/3...what comes to mind: "big eyes", puffalina, penelope puppy, hand in mouth, megan and caymen (her left and right hand), talented linguist...the way she expresses herself for a three year old, boo...everyone calls her boo from monster's inc, loves rice balls, loud quacky voice, upper lip that sticks out when she talks, a true stinker, loves her red patent leather shoes, says, "when i was a big girl...", loves puzzles, early riser and morning person like daddy, a REAL character, wants to be a star
projects...i decided i needed a creative challenge this year. at first i thought...new etsy store, which i did launch. it occurred to me however, that my first etsy store, pipsqueak and bean, was already established and that I should put my efforts in one place. so...this month, in my original shop, I started testing new product and treating it like a real business. in just 3 weeks my numbers have topped all other months...amazing what can be accomplished with focus.
as much as i love designing little dolls...my second store, lucky 5 studios, will be on hold. AND...that book of poems that i started 10 years ago is officially on the to be finished in 2014 list. dr. seuss, roald dahl, shel silverstein...still my ultimate goal.
dolls and pins in my etsy shop, lucky 5 studios
CK published layouts for 2013 that i never posted
so with that brief update...signing off for the night...hopefully not for all of 2014.
