Great Things

For the next few days I'm gonna be giving some shout-outs to some great fellow Etsy entrepreneurs.
There are hundreds of thousands of shops on Etsy. You can find anything you want there--handmade or vintage. They even sell sweets and vegan treats. Yummy!

So, today I'm singing the praises of: wish it was sunday. (Yes, that is a link. Try it!!)

This shop is all about protective cases.
For the Kindle, Nook, laptops, iPads, phones. You name it. Handmade. Customized if you ask

She made me a padded case for my new Macbook Air. It's amazing!! The fabric on the outside is nature-themed with vines, a stag, spiderweb, birds, butterflies, etc. The inside is contrasting fuschia white little white polkadots. And since I didn't want the button-clasp that the original came with, she made mine with a zipper. It has a sweet pink ribbon sewn on to act as a zipper pull.

I had a fear of crumbs and junk in my purse getting into a button-closed side and destroying my new baby. Can you really blame me?

Here's mine:

I'll Procrastinate Tomorrow

After a loooooong hiatus, I am back to my blog.

I missed you, blog.

I have been so busy lately! I lost my job after taking care of the most adorable boys for 3 and half years, found a new one (love, love, love this family), traveled with the new family for a month, and now I have finally settled back into a normal routine!!

Oh, and we have been going through the process of being approved for an exchange student!!! (Can't wait to meet her through Skype in the next few weeks!)

I've been planning out the next month's worth of posts, so I am going to start tomorrow.

Nothing like a little procrastination!
