So what is next?
Baby is a month old now. Sleeping better, less colicky, gaining weight steadily, smiling and looking around. :) Daddy and siblings are bonding well and baby loves all the noise around her. Praise Jesus! I don't think I will ever have a quiet house again with 4 children. :)
anyway... my Mom and Dad are back in Brazil and I am once again in charge of my nest. I had to re-think a lot of things and organize my nest and my time. I have decided for now (it can change in a couple of weeks) to close my Etsy shop on April 10th. I have a sale going on now, so do stop by and check it out. Everything is ready to ship. I am no longer making them after the order is placed.
I really need to concentrate on my home and children right now so I am only making things and putting them for sale when I am inspired and I have the time, otherwise my family comes first and I will not stress. I love to create and sell my treasured creations and make custom orders, but I just can't right now and sacrifice my home and children. So, I will not stress and really enjoy the creative process. I will be making things because I am able (I got the time and there is no pressure) and because I enjoy. This is me preaching to myself, my own reminder.
Have you ever been caught in the rat race? It's difficult to imagine that one can create imaginable outside pressure and put oneself in the rat race. I have done it to myself many times. I need to learn to stop. So, I am stopping. :)
I have been inspired this past few weeks. I made a gorgeous 6x6 album for my Mom to take to Brazil. I never got photos though because it was raining and as usual I make things for her at the last minute. :) I made some cards and tags that went to Brazil as thank you gifts as well as to my dear friends who sent me baby gifts. Here are a few.
I have already some Mother's Day cards ready and other pretty shabby chic treasures to share. I will share them in the next post.
Please make sure to follow my blog if you would like to know when I post or when I list things in my Etsy shop.
Have a blessed week and thanks for stopping by. :)
