So the last 2 posts have been kind of downer posts so it's time for some happy things.
One of the biggest happy things for me right now is this...I was contacted last week about my new business Pink Owl Designs. I was floored that I was contacted and so excited. Trying to get a new business name, especially in the creative field is so hard and even more so when you are trying to do it frugally(free).
Other happy things are of course spring, although when we were creeping towards 90 a few days last week, I was not so happy. Not that I want the cold winter back, but I wanted Spring, say 70-75 degrees, not almost 90. We moved in November and where we are now has a several really large trees in the front yard and I am loving seeing the leaves on the trees and the shade they are providing. I am loving the kids being outside too. Although it is difficult when they want to stay out and it's time to come in and get ready for bed. Will be glad when summer comes and they can stay out longer.
I'm also happily busy creating. I had a friend call and see if I would be willing to make some gift tag/cards for her daughters school for the teachers. I was so flattered that she thought of me. I created 24 cards for her and she said all the teachers and anyone else who saw them loved them. Shortly after she contacted me I had a lady email me requesting me to address envelopes for her mother's memorial service. She said she and her sister both had horrible handwriting and they wanted pretty handwriting for these envelopes. I have always been fascinated with handwriting and am always experiencing with my handwriting so I was thrilled with this task. I also created 115 cards for my son's school for the volunteer breakfast. That was a ton of cards to do in a matter of about 3 days. I didn't get a picture of it, but will when I get my card at the breakfast on Friday. I'm now working on a gift for our outgoing PTA President. I'm not happy that this is her last year at our school, but am happily creating her gift. I can't wait to be able to take pictures of it to share here.
I have a busy week coming up, but have some ideas for different posts so I will be back this week with lots more. Brewing a few ideas for some weekly posts based on some kind of theme. This week I'm also planning to participate in Ali Edward's My Week in the Life Project I have always wanted to try this, but never have. I am excited to give it a try. We have a very busy week this week with baseball practice 2 nights, PTA meeting one night, a field trip for Audrey, volunteer breakfast and of course all the normal life stuff. Great week for me to remember our life for one week.
