So I’ve been thinking about this whole blogging thing for a while, trying to come up with the perfect post, something creative, interesting, significant. I mean, after all, it is my FIRST post ever, right? Well, truth be told, I got nothin’.
Have you ever tried to force something creative out of yourself? It just doesn’t work. So I just decided to approach this whole blogging thing the same way I would approach an art, craft, or sewing project- just let go & let it flow, mama! (easier said than done).
So, in lieu of trying to be witty or poignant, I’m just writing today what comes to me. My deep philosophies on the meaning of life will have to come another day. Right now, I am running back and forth between my computer and my stove, making soup for my 19 month old for breakfast. “Soup for breakfast?” you say, and I answer, “Yes!” At 19 months, there aren’t too many things this boy can ask for that I actually understand, and today, he looked in the pantry, pointed, and most definitely asked for soup (Chicken Noodle, one ice cube, in case you were wondering). Today is his lucky day.
We’re also working on our package for miniswap 3 today. We are sooooo excited to have gotten a super nice family from Sydney, Australia as our swap partner. I’m not sure if the boys quite get what we’re doing, but they’ll definitely love getting a package from the other side of the pond. The package is to be kid-oriented, and mostly handmade or gently used items. Our swap family has two little girls, so I’m just beside myself with giddy-ness as to what I can include for them- oh, the ideas I have! More updates on this to come…
Some of the things I’ve been working on this week are baby gift sets. Here is one for a boy:
And a female version:
I just love the Tracy Porter fabric on the boy set, and the sweet peas on the girl’s. These sets will be available for purchase on my Etsy shop which is coming soon! Hopefully they’ll make their new owners very warm & happy.
Well, off to start my day- there are noses to wipe, teeth to brush, laundery to do, breakfast to clean up (the dog loved the soup, by the way). Thanks for stopping by, & come again soon.
