One big update >>>

 It's me!  Im back!  What an amazing week this has been.  Most of you know I was the featured seller on etsy last week.  If not, you can read the interview here.  It was everything I thought it would be.  The moment it went on the front page, the orders and emails started pouring in.  So so very cool and exciting.  It had ebbs and flows, it wasnt crazy all day long.  Just enough to really handle.  It was quite perfect.  By day two, I got a bit overwhelmed with the work ahead of me, but I think only because I was sick.  Ive been fighting being sick this whole week.  Im feeling much better today, just an icky cough.  And for the first time today, after finishing up the last of my packaging from this week, like feels like normal.  I even cleaned house a bit last night, and Im baking cookies right now!  Whew!  Im soooo ready to get back into my studio and start creating again.  Funny, even though Ive worked my butt off this week, I still really want to work (but on the creative side, not the shipping/business side).  I can only go so long without creating something new.  That is how I know I really really love what I do.  

Besides all of the etsy stuff this week, we have also been to either Kerrville or SA three times and to Tarpley for a birthday party.  Its been a full week and Im surprised I can still see straight :)  We also made lots of new Skyline Fever shirts, some for James etsy shop and some for a local shop.  They should be going up any day now...  

I got several requests during the week for sponsors spots that are no longer available.  Im down to just small spots only for November.  Ill be changing things up next month to fit in a new size button, so be on the lookout towards mid-month for that announcement.  I have a waiting list for large spots for months now, so if you want a spot you might need to be quick next month.  Thank you so much for all of the amazing support.  

Speaking of support, I cannot believe the amazingly wonderful comments I received on the feature seller interview.  Everyone was so kind and receptive to my open interview.  Putting things out there in this world that are vulnerable and personal can sometimes make you feel a bit nervous, but it was taken with such good response, it was encouraging.  Which by the way, I know I havent written about my dad or anything personal on here in a while just b/c Ive been so overwhelmed with work this past month.  Its sort of been my emotional break.  A much needed break at that.  Im so lucky I have my nanna and my aunt lisa to call up and keep me balanced.  I have very strong woman to look up to in my family. 
This beautiful moon shot was taken mid month during the full moon.  The day I took this, I had myself convinced I was ready to start having kids.  Even though the attempt was farrrrr from reality, the seed was planted in my heart that night.  James and I both know we want kids, but we are both silly scared to make the plunge.  But it feels like the world is turning around us in ways to prepare us for it.  I think our hearts are beginning to really form around the idea.  As free spirited as some of you may think I am, Im a super planner also.  And so is James.  Im a cancer and he is a capricorn, polar opposites, but both all about security.  Me, emotionally, James, financially.  But we are getting there.  I think I should make a post dedicated to my fears one day.  The list is probably longer than I think.  Maybe some of you can help me put some things into perspective... 

On another note, Id like to say thank you to all of my lovely friends who supported me this week with their amazing guest posts.  All I told them was the word 'feather', and they each came up with such unique, creative ideas.  I was so overjoyed each time one came to me in my email.  An awesome group of girls!!!
Wow, can you tell Ive missed my little blog?  I feel like I could write all day long.  Until next time...
PEACE,
Laura
