New Items in the Shop

Some new seasonal and everyday things in the shop, with more on the way soon.

So far the Year of the Dragon has been kicking me in the butt, what with toddler tantrums almost everyday and a mild cold that doesn't want to leave. Hoping that the weekend has some good things in store. Happy (Belated) Chinese New Year to everyone!

Whitney's party came and went pretty quickly. All the planning leading up to it seemed a bit in vain (ie. I stressed out way too much, especially in Matt's opinion). Most importantly, there was cake (well, cupcakes) and balloons. Plus, I'm pretty sure Whitney had fun and hopefully all our guests did too.

Of course, now she has a cold.

I'm very nearly finished the book. Just awaiting feedback and possibly some final touches and tweaks. I will share more about the (journey of working on this) book once I've completed the illustrations.

I'm Late, I'm Late

Happy (Belated) New Year!

I wish I could have started 2012 a little more organized and caught up. But with Dex going on a little adventure outside 3 weeks ago, things got set back and some deadlines were missed. The most important thing, though, is that we got Dex back home... on Christmas morning! I kid you not. It was our Christmas miracle. Santa (or someone) heard my plea. Now I just want him to be healthy. He was a skinny and tired boy after a week of being outside. And he's been vomiting off and on for a little bit, so I'm hoping it is nothing serious.

Work-wise, I am finally nearing the finish line of the children's book I've been working on for the past year. Just the cover and a few revisions to finish. My publishers must be counting the days till they can get their hands on all the illustrations.

Other than that, the shop is now open again. Look for some new things soon... once I (or we) finish planning and putting together Whitney's first big birthday party, which will be this Saturday. She turns 2 on Wednesday. This will be the first party really that Matt will have hosted. Yes, we are not social butterflies, so hopefully all goes well. It's all about the kids, anyways, right?
