Un-official end to summer

So with Labor Day weekend upon us and what most call the Un-official end to summer, I'm looking forward to fall.

We have a busy Labor Day weekend ahead of us. My sister and her fiance are having their engagement party this weekend. We will also be celebrating Dart's birthday, which isn't until September 26th, but this will likely be the last weekend we are in KC until probably Thanksgiving so we decided this would be the best time to do it. Hope to get to Santa Cali Gon days as well while we are there. Busy busy busy.

I'm hoping at some point life slows down, but I really don't think it's going to. At least for the most part it's all fun good stuff. Just really looking forward to a weekend when we can chill.

Right now I'm reading Craft, Inc.: Turn Your Creative Hobby into a Business right now and totally loving it. I usually just get my books from the library, but this may end up being one I buy. It is so full of information and has me feeling excited and inspired with regards to my business. I am constantly thinking about branding and packaging and all that other fun stuff now. I really want to be able to dive into all the ideas I have swirling in my head, but for now I'm learning and sketching and drawing and writing. I think even if you just wanted to make a little money with your hobby, this book would be a perfect read. For those interested in going further there is also a little planner that goes along with this book called Craft Inc. Business Planner. The author also has another book out called Creative, Inc.: The Ultimate Guide to Running a Successful Freelance Business.  I haven't read it yet, but it's on my list.

I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend. I hope to be back more next week.
