The season change is getting a bit obvious, it is starting to get really chilly outside, We actually spent a few days last week raking, I have just enough trees to give me a yard full of leaves and pine needles. Yesterday morning it was snowing. It did not stick around but Yes it was snowing.
So I have decided I am going to use this as an excuse to slow down and take care of me for a while. I will keep up with my schoolwork and create beadwork when I can sit and enjoy doing it. I will spend a lot of my free time with my grand baby because now I can have her come stay at my house more often than I have to go to hers. Now I just need to find a playpen so I have a safe place to put her when she is sleeping. She is right at that point where she is going to start really rolling on her own with no warning ;o)
I ended up with 8 custom orders for Amulet bags which means forget getting new items in my shop before Christmas. First order was for a large bag, large enough to hold credit cards. that is finished and mailed. I have 2 that are required to have metal feathers, they are almost done but running into a problem, the feathers I have bought in the past, well I just can't find them, I have found larger ones but not the size I use. But I will find something. One the next order I have one bag finished, one almost finished and 3 more to start!
I will not stress, I will not stress, I will not stress. This is the winter I stay tucked in the house and work at my own pace, even in my jammies if I don't feel like getting dressed and enjoy being home doing what I wish without stressing about what I cannot do anymore.
Tomorrow is Veterans Day, coming from a family who has many members past and present, close and distant, of the armed services, it is natural for me to remember what this holiday is about. Remember to say thank you if you happen to come across someone tomorrow who is in service. If you or someone in your life is in any of our armed services, I thank you and honor you for what you do for us.
