Well, life has been quite the whirlwind!! I am attempting (too often unsuccessfully! ;-P) to find out what my new "normal" is and settle in. The local sewing business has picked up considerably and is keeping me quite busy! On the down-side, I've had a bit less time to devote to my Etsy shop than I originally planned. But, that's how life goes, right? ;-)
This week continues in the "busy" mode, and the next 2 look to be just as full, as a good friend is getting married and I will be in the wedding party! I get to work on her wedding gown, and let me tell you- I can't wait to finally show you all pictures! :-D I'm a big fan of the dress. ;-)
Posting might be a bit sporadic leading up to that, so for now I'll just leave you with a short re-cap of the things I deemed "photo worthy" in my spring sabbatical. ;-)
Hosting a fun "Vintage Travel" themed party! See?? I really do need all that vintage luggage. ;-)
(post with more pics coming later!)
A girls trip to Lake Michigan where I saw my very first giant sand dunes. Wow. Those are crazy! While we were there.....
.... we were tourists in Holland, MI. So of course we visited the delft and wooden shoe factories. As well as parking along the road to take photos of the only patch of tulips blooming. All 7 of them. ;-)
We had better tulip and daffodil luck at the flower farm!
And we took trips down to the beach each night to take photos of the sunsets. :-) It was a beautiful change from the cornfields around here, but I don't think I'm quite a beach addict yet. ;-)
This trip was also my very first time taking my camera out in public. Big step for me!! I still haven't made much progress in the Photography Skills department, but now that the weather's warmed up, I'll have more excuses to take photos. ;-)
Finally, I received my first custom Etsy order! I was so excited that I had to take a picture before I even got around to the buttons. ;-)
It's good to be back blogging- I've missed you all! :-)
