Happy Halloween

I've finished all the samples, and they should be arriving at their first destination shortly. What a relief it was to complete them. I also managed to sew and stock new items at both babyGO and Orchid Place last week, and this week committed to join In Their Hands, check it out! I got a bad haircut, got it fixed, and then got that one improved, so I've had 3 hair cuts in the past 11 days! I think it's all good now, and will hopefully stay that way. I also settled on a name for my own interior company ... I'm very happy to have that firmed up, and can now move ahead with promotion plans and such, and set up to open in February 2008. :) Have a great day!

I'm really going to update this more often. Really.

Ok, I think I need to be more intentional about this blog. So, I'm starting over. I'm going to try really hard to post more often, weekly at least. I'm going to write about whatever I want. Some of this may duplicate Finn's blog (access to family only!), but hey ... if you read both, you're family ad used to me chatting lots :) I'm going to hopefully update progress on my sewing, both for Orchid Place, babyGO and personal sewing for myself, Finn and gifts. I'll post photos of Dave's train set as it becomes more than 6" of styrofoam on a plywood platform. You'll get to see photos of Penny, Parker & Jesse too. Sewing Update I have 4 of 55 change purses completed for The Spotted Box. I have 10 more cut out and ready to sew. I have fabric for all of them - just need to get back to cutting. There are too many other projects to list right now, so I will only ramble on about projects that are at least cut out! And perhaps updating the blog will encourage me to start and finish projects! Life Update Finn is 7.5 mths old! Crazy. He has 3 teeth, 2 of them on the top, they're sharp - really sharp. Dave can confirm this for you, as Finn enjoys chewing on shoulders. Currently, Dave has taking the little guy out for the afternoon, so that I can have a bit of a break - I have used this break very wisely ... made chili, washed diapers, rescued my desk blotter from my crazy paper eating dog, and as soon as I'm done typing this update, I'm going to have a shower without listening for Finn ... you who don't have sole responsibility for another person 24/7 some weeks will not fully be able to appreciate how wonderful that really is! And, a wonderful has happened! It's finally fall! Cool and a bit of a brisk breeze ... perfect sweater weather :)
