As most of you all know I am working towards the Fab countdown and I have been organizing (photo 1 - just look at all the stuff I got out of my house!) and working on my logo in preparation. Those are all pretty big things for me and the latter two are things I have been putting off for at least a year. I also have been creating a new line of fabric, yay! Or I should say I finally ordered the fabric I started designing almost two years ago. (photos 2) I am really excited about it - no embroidery involved. Not that I don't love embroidery but it's fun to design something once and be able to produce in larger quantities, and it's just new and that feels really refreshing.
We have also had a plethora of doctor and dentist visits the last couple weeks. (photo 3) Okay, maybe not a plethora but a couple a week, and that feels like a lot. My little Luca has been kind of sickly since I started giving him solid food. So you know like 3 years ago. Sickly is probably not the right word choice but emotionally not quite as well adjusted, psoriasis, belly issues, stuff like that. So we all went gluten-free awhile back because I have suffered very similar issues all my life as well as a lot of joint pain. We all started feeling so much better, and while Luca did as well, he seems to be extremely sensitive to the point we are thinking he probably has celiac disease. We are also wanting to rule out other food allergies as well because sometimes the little guy just seems miserable and is constantly dealing with his body. And at four, um, he should just be having fun.
And as if I didn't have enough on my plate I am undertaking another painting project. (I can't pass up a good sale!) Anyone who knows me knows I am terribly indecisive, as in the debilitating sort of way. Or in the way where I get the urge to call people in the middle of the night and ask them their opinion for the umpteenth time.
And last but certainly not least I am looking to try to create my own store front (photo 5) and not use Etsy as my main squeeze if you will. I am ready to break up, or maybe date other people, or just be friends, or have an open relationship. Remember that part above where I said I was indecisive, that definitely isn't helping in this process nor is my super-basic technical skills. But now is the time so forward I must go.
Hope everyone has a great weekend and the world is a calm and filled with peace. I am hoping to get a little downtime and read some of my book. My older son, Fisher, insisted I read Game Of Thrones (photo 4), I was quite unconvinced that I would like them. I was wrong. He was right. Check point for Fisher.
**the photo of pillows in photo 5 are not mine. i was just too lazy to go through all my photos to get a preview shot while working on a design. that image was found here. grazie.
