Audrey and I are flying off today with our dear friend Kristin for a week away. We are headed to the Lone Star State where yummy restaurants and decent shopping are on every corner. I can hardly contain my excitement!
This past week has been a whirlwind. My sweet little family and the shop have kept me busy, busy, busy. I have to admit that I am looking forward to a break. I haven't really had one since...well, I can't remember when.
While I am away, I have a few things I have been thinking about that I wanted to pass along to you, my dear blogging friends.
::1:: I have a love affair with ETSY that is growing stronger by the day. I feel such a sense of gratification in making something lovely, packaging it up and shipping it off to a happy new home. Working directly with buyers is is very empowering. One buyer that I am super excited about is Deb from Ruby & Crickette. Deb lives in Australia with her husband and 2 little daughters. She also runs an online jewelry business that specializes in lovely one-of-a-kind pieces. You MUST check out her stuff! I was lucky enough to put together a new line of packaging for Deb's business, and I have to tell you, she is a dream to work with!

::2:: Dwell Studio is now offering up some pretty things for baby at Target. I bought Audrey this, this, and I really want this. My Target doesn't have it, but maybe a Target in Texas will.
::3:: One goal for this spring is to plant a garden with my children and I need advice! What are fun and easy things to grow? Any great books out there that will be helpful?
::4:: Three new crafting books I must have: This one, thata one, and definitely this one here.
Have a lovely week.
I may check in while in Texas, but if I don't, plan on hearing about all the fun on Monday!
