 Now along with PayPal I am accepting all major credit cards in my Etsy shop.  This makes the process of purchasing just one step easier for you.

Time for the Fair

 I have dreamed of having kids old enough for some time to be able to enter various projects in our local county fair.  Well it appears this will be our first year!  I am getting so excited about it all! 

My two older boys participate in 4-H, so they will be entering a couple static exhibits for that.  And, my two younger kids are entering projects of their own.  Mama even gets to play.  I will be entering 3 projects as well.  We have everything from paintings to sun-catchers to knit sweaters.  Today we are taking our first entries to be judged and next week we will take the remainder.  Wish us luck!

(Pictures of entered projects will come after the judging =)

Busy Life

The days fly by when I don't even know where the time has gone.  It seems that I spend a lot of time carting children from one activity to the next, but I am thankful for all the fun things they are able to participate in- swimming lessons, soccer, library times, taekwondo, etc. 

We do have fun in this busy season and enjoy times together.  A couple nights ago we stayed up late to finish our Scrabble game (one of my favorites).  My two older boys were competing against me and did really well for a 9- and 10-year-old if I do say so myself.  My two younger kids were "fixing" my hair and it was just a fun time to be a family. (My hubby was peacefully resting in the floor next to us after a full day at work =) 

Hoping to get back to a regular schedule soon with Etsy and crafting in general.  I miss it and will have to find a way to make it work in the hours I have.  Hope you too are having a happy summer!
