Weekly update

You know the thing about blogs, is once you have one you then feel compelled to write something in them ~ regularly. And as time goes along and you don't write anything, you really feel a sense of urgency to do some sort of update ~ Lest people forget about you entirely and your readership disappears, your sense of self worth is gone.... Ok not really, for me it's just about the passage of time and my need to continuously accomplish something. Blog posts are like little checkmarks on your life and I'm all about the checkmarks. I'm not sure where that trait came from, probably requires therapy but I'm happy with it like that.

When I started this blog, I really planned to only post about sewing. But heck life is about more than sewing, or it should be so occassionally you might find a tidbit of my life thrown into the mix here and there . Then again, it's pretty tough to have a blog about sewing if you aren't sewing. Well ok I have been sewing just a bit, but I'm not ready to post about that just yet. Meanwhile we have come to that point in the year when it's time to clear out the old and move in the new. In this case I have to clear out my kids old outgrown clothing. My particular brand of kids grow like weeds - I personally think mine are weedier than the rest, but perhaps my perception is skewed. Late July is about the month when it's time to start selling those outgrown fall and winter clothes on ebay. Well, ok I realize it isn't July yet, but I hate sitting in front of my computer on those warm sunny days of summer, so I have quit selling clothes entirely and shuffled the job off to someone else. My lovely and helpful Trading Assistant ~ that's what she calls herself ~ I like to call her Jen. But she does all the hard work for me which is fabulous because I just mentioned my lack of fondness for the job right? Unlike me however, she is very organized and prepared and wants to get the job started before July, hence my need to ship them off to her now. So that is what I have been doing for the last few nights, sorting through the clothes and packing them up. I really despise this job. Thank goodness for Jen. Alas, this requires me to box it up and ship it to her as she is probably about 3000 miles from me. Yeah that's really cost effective I know but sometimes time is worth more than money. Anyway, so off it goes and the sooner the better so I can get back to my sewing machine. Jen sells for lots of people so if you want to check out her auctions you can do so here in the next few months.

Ok I promise, I will post again soon. I have a big purse launch in the works and it will go up in the Etsy shop as soon as I can get some nice photographs in the daylight.
