I can't believe it!

I only have a month and a half left of school before I finally get my Bachelor's Degree. After I am done with school, I'll start looking for a more full-time job, but until then, I will (hopefully) have even more time to dedicate to my beloved Etsy shop. Meanwhile, I am going to try something that is supposed to be trendy this fall-- Military stuff! I have a few ideas and some supplies already that I am pleased to announce are UPCYCLED! I love using upcycled stuff, it's just a rarity for me. My father in law gave me a bunch of his old army stuff-- blank dog tags and the stay-brite buttons with the Army Seal on them. I have some ideas for the dog tags, and some ideas for the buttons, but I am still waiting on my sewing machine. Hopefully it will be fixed soon and I can start practicing.

My fanpage has grown about 10 members lately, and my twitter following has exploded! (Well... relatively, anyway. Everything is relative, right?) Now, I just need the sales in my shop to follow the same trend. I have been working on refreshing listings (not renewing, but giving them makeovers). Hopefully, it works.

As far as the home front, things have been a roller coaster with sick family members, car wrecks, and a death, not to mention that graduation in the fairly near future. Child care has been a nightmare lately because of everything that has been happening. I just have to keep telling myself "One more month! One MORE MONTH!"

  1. I can relate to that my husband is just now finishing his final project for his masters degree and things have been crazy. Hang in there and before you know it you will be done with that part!
