Happy Friday! This has been a fast week, and I would love to sit down and have coffee and a chat with you. If we were having coffee today...
...I would start by telling you that we are about to be buried under snow. It can be really pretty coming down and to watch it pile up and know you don't have to go anywhere, but when the forecast is for 15-24+ inches of snow and blizzard conditions, it makes you worry a little. They've already cancelled school in town so at least I don't have to worry about taking Gus to preschool.
...I would tell you, with a little squeal, that on Saturday, I had a treasury that I made featured on the front page of Etsy for the first time. Not quite as big a deal as having an item on the front page, but still pretty darn cool. I was so completely excited by this, I took a screen shot. I couldn't help myself.
...I'd tell you that I did a quick guest post for Heidi this week. I shared my super quick and easy blueberry muffin recipe, which I make a lot with Gus as my helper. I'd tell you to pay her a visit because I would love for you to try the recipe. I already made two batches this week.
...I'd tell you again how excited I am for the Better Life Bags giveaway that's running right now. It's such a great cause and it's wonderful to give them some support. I'd encourage you to enter, if you hadn't already, because their bags are so awesome.
...I'd lament to you that even though I have a ton of new materials sitting in my workspace right now, calling to me, I haven't had time to do anything with them. We have had a really busy week, and I haven't been able to squeeze in the amount of alone time I need to make anything. If you follow me on Instagram, you'd see that I started work on a new bag, but I didn't get to finish it yet. It's really frustrating. I'm hoping that maybe with the snow I might get some time to work, since I won't be able to leave the house.
...I'd share with you that I'm having a big sale on baker's twine in my shop. I'd tell you that I don't plan on selling it anymore, so if you've been waiting for a good time to buy it, now is that time! If you follow me on social media, there's even a little more of a discount. I'm trying to move my shop toward one clear theme, and I feel like I have a little too much going on in there right now.
...I'd share this series with you from Sarah at yes and yes. She's dong nine random nice things over the course of nine days. Her ideas are simple and easy, and I can't read to see what else she comes up with. I'd ask you if you ever did random acts of kindness such as these. I feel like it's something I would like to do sometime in the future.
...I'd also share my latest find from the library. Yes, those are homemade Pop-Tarts on the cover. I actually got a whole new stack of books this week that I can't wait to dive into.
...I'd tell you that I'm going to go pour a second cup because it's just looks like that kind of day. I'm hoping it will be productive. I'd ask you what's new with you, and I'd tell you to stay safe if you are also in the blizzard's path. I'd wish you a great day and a great weekend, too, and I'd thank you for having coffee with me today. It's such a nice way to wrap up the week.
