700 Posts?!

Actually, this post makes it 701. Wow. 701 posts of not all that much to say;) Thanks for coming along for the ride! It is wonderful to have like-minded friends all over the world.

The past few weeks have been filled with a whole lot of Studio Time...Mostly just rearranging, going through things and listing on Etsy. I love going down into the studio! Mostly to putter around. It is definitely my happy place. Unless it is too filled and I haven't been spending enough time putting sale items away or the glue bottles and glitter are all over the desk area with paper cuttings. The desk has been cleared off (for the most part, do not judge me) and this is the most space I have had since last fall.

Obviously, there is still a lot of moving around to do. And on that note, I am going to go fix a pot of tea and head back down for the day!

Enjoy your day and weekend, Sonya


Bud's Harry Potter Surprise Party!

Bud is now 7. MY BABY IS SEVEN!  And is so into Harry Potter he can hardly contain himself. So when we decided to throw a little surprise party for him and a few close friends yesterday, it was quite easy to come up with a theme. Some streamers and balloons in Griffindor colors:
 A cool sign painted by Lu:
 And a scavenger hunt to get the party started:
--Wands were wooden dowels
--Toads and snakes were small plastic Target finds
--Dragon eggs were Easter eggs spray painted bright gold
--Stones were large beads
--Wizards cup was little trophy's found also at Target in their party section

Buds close friends Mommies are my close friends which makes it very easy to just relax and enjoy the party. The different items they found on their scavenger hunt went home with each child in their goodie bags, The potions class was part of the refreshments (7up and food coloring) and then cupcakes in the 'great hall' for treats. And then the kids just played hard while the Mom's had a chance to catch up. It was so much fun!

And now I need to get my newly 7 year old child off to school.

Enjoy your day, Sonya


Organizing Of Life

The past week has been spent decluttering everything from clothes to drawers to emails to computer files to Pinterest to the storage area downstairs. A couple trips have been made to Goodwill, items packed away for Childrens Closet, goodies boxed up to take up to the cabin and lots of items are prepped and ready for Etsy. Its been a good ride!

I would like to focus on the Studio this week...I need to pull everything out of there and rearrange some furniture. Sounds like a fun week ahead and I am sure there will be forgotten treasures that will resurface!

Enjoy your day, Sonya


Welcoming 2012

See ya 2011. So long. Don't bother coming around again. We are locking the door on you. (Except for the good parts.)

Finished putting all the Christmas decorations away yesterday and now the entire house feels fresh and clean and ready for what the New Year will bring. This week is going to be spent doing a bit more decluttering since I am realllly in the mood and as you well know, you gotta go with that when it hits.
Enjoy your day, Sonya
