I'm So Excited, And I Just Can't Hide It ...

...I'm about to lose control and I think I like it...uh huh... Dance with me ya'll! Dance your little feet off! I'm so excited, and NO I'm not pregnant and NO I'm not getting married and NO I did NOT win the lottery. I opened my very own etsy shop!! (Drum roll, balloons launching, marching band heading down Main St.) I hope you will visit my shop and let me know what you think. It's scary putting "myself" out there but I'm still excited!

LeeAnn tagged me a while back to write my to-do list, which I'm just now getting around to. I don't know where time goes but I know that "time" is clicking by much faster than my to-do list is getting shorter. (I hope that sentence makes sense.) This is my latest list...

The only item I can mark off at this moment is "start an etsy shop". Everything else is still left to do, with a few more added in my brain that aren't listed. I've got sewing to do, the Summer Bucket of Fun swap to work on....the list becomes endless sometimes.

#1 - I've got a few small pieces of furniture to paint in Laura Ashley "Stone" color. I enjoy painting furniture, but not walls.

#2 - I still have (3) skirts to make. I bought fabric that I luuuuvvvv a month ago and still don't have them made.

#3 - I need badly to go through fabric in the chifferobe and decide which pieces I absolutely love. I've found that the more fabric I have the harder it is to decide which to use. I also want to take the chifferobe back to my sister in N.C. It's gorgeous, but I wanted it to house my fabric and it just doesn't work so well for that.

#4 - Clean out my bedroom closet. There are just too many clothes in there. Some don't fit, others aren't comfortable and some just aren't "me". I'm tired of seeing so many clothes and wearing only those that are in the center. If I got rid of some clothes I'd have more room for fabric. Yee-Ha !

#5 - Work on my Summer Bucket of Fun Swap. My partner is Christy and she makes pretty aprons I've noticed. I love aprons. (hint hint)

#6 - Try the lasagna recipe I've been carrying around in my purse for 2 weeks!

#7 - Post on my blog 2 times every week!!

I received the origami stars I ordered recently and I just love them! They were packaged so pretty and have been a big hit with everyone who has seen them. I'm amazed that Chantelle makes these little things......with her little little ol' Hawaii !! Oh my gosh...Hawaii. Seriously though, these are so unique and very affordable. Check them out here.

You go girl! Congrats on opening you etsy shop. Adding a charm to your bags is a really nice touch. (I set up my etsy account a while ago, but haven't taken that leap of faith to put anything in it!)

Got the hint about the apron. I'll see what I can do. :0

Oh, I want to do something like this too this summer. I will be watching your progress. I need inspiration like you to start up on etsy.

Aw thank so much for including me in your blog!!!
It's good you have a to-do list. My list for this summer is to work, sleep, and go to the beach and get a tan.

Anyway, if you ever need more justtt let me know! I'd love to set up a special* listing for ya.
