Thank You. Thank You. And Thank YOU!

Thanks guys for all the warm welcome back wishes! It's been a crazy crazy week.

I busied myself (read: ran around like a crazy woman) preparing the children to leave, with my in-laws, for a MONTH (gosh that's a long time).

I said last week that I sewed. I did - some fun playful playskirts for Anna:

Sorry for the bad photo (did I mention the CRAZY woman living in my house last week)
Anyway - she loves them and they were super simple.

I'm also working on a HUGE home project - recovering all of the upholstered pieces in my den. I think I might be crazy, but it seemed like a good idea and heaven knows it needs to be done! I've restuffed/rewrapped all of the cushions and covered them in muslin. Now I must make the actual covers. It's a large undertaking to be sure, but I am enjoying the process and it will help this homeschooling mom manage for a MONTH without the kids.

It's awfully quiet around here.

I'll keep you posted!

Hi,

I wanted to write and tell you about a new website for fashion designers, artists, musicians, and filmmakers: www.PutItOn.com. I've been using the site as an artist and have my work there, and am trying to support. Basically, the site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with no commission taken). The site gives artists a free gigabyte of space to showcase their portfolios, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, and if you like it too, let your readers know about it, and even sign up yourself or link to it on your site it would be greatly appreciated! We are trying to make a go of helping out artists everywhere and are trying to get the word out, so please help us out if you like the site after checking it out! 

Thank you!
