The buzz......

The past week I have been buzzing around non-stop. I don't know where the time goes. I get up at 7 and don't go to bed until 11 or so, but where is the time? Do you ever feel like this?

Let's see, my baby turned 1 last Friday. This was bittersweet. I love to see the next stage and watch her grow, but with each milestone passed it soon becomes a distant memory.
My sweet husband and I have decided that 5 is the lucky number. We don't have plans to have more children, so I am trying to relish every minute with my baby. The only problem is, the more I try to slow her down, the faster she goes. She walks... not just from couch to chair, she walks anywhere and everywhere, she jumps... I thought most kids didn't learn to jump, feet all the way off the floor, until they were 2 or 3 at least. I could go on and on, but your don't want to hear me sob anymore. I love watching my children grow and hopefully I will get a chance to post some pictures of here way cute birthday. I made her a cake of her very own and she LOVED it.

I've also been spending way too much time on the computer, not blogging obviously, but editing photos and working on my ver first e-book! I am so excited to release it. It's in the testing stages right now, but you will be the first to know when I release it.

My sewing machine has also been the focus of my time. I have been working on some fresh new customs. Stay tuned for a preview.

Speaking of sewing.............

My fantabulous group 7&Co is having this "black friday" launch the day after Thanksgiving and you would not believe the great things we are planning to offer! I can't wait to see what everyone lists and great prices too!

I plan to bring back a couple things one last time before I retire them from Ebay. I will also have some brand new customs that you are going to love!
So stop by on Friday and the whole next week to see what we have. We will be listing throughout the following week.

And then Thanksgiving....

We will be splitting the day with both families. We normally don't do this, but we want to be able share the day with both, so what else, but to split the day.

I will be taking lots of food.....Parsley Green Beens, Corn Casserole, Stuffed Mushrooms, and Crab Dip. Mmmmm, I better go get busy or we won't be taking anything.

I hope to find more time this weekend to update you on everything and show some pictures! I am going to join the mass of loonies Friday for some knock down dragout shoppin' so I won't be doing much blogging until the weekend.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and I will see you in a few days.

The Pitter Patter

of little feet again. It seems like yesterday when my first child was learning to walk and here I am five kids later still brought to tears when I see my baby take her first steps.
It's actually been a couple months since she took her first step and it was so adorable in a bittersweet way. It's always cute to see them grow up, but the next stage is always harder than the previous. I don't push my children now, I just try to enjoy each moment, because tomorrow may be worse.
Which brings me to the reason, or shall I say reasons for my blog absence. Kids 1 and 2 have so much homework after school that I think most days I am back in school. Who's the student here? I distinctly remember doing my time in school and gladly left that behind, but now it haunts me through my children.
Kids 3 and 4 fight constantly and kid 4 uses a blood curling scream as her defense mechanism when kid 3 is bullying her for the pen or notebook, which is the constant battle here.
Then there is kid 5.... She went from taking her first step to running through the house like a tornado ripping things out of place, eating everything in sight, ripping papers to bits, and demanding I spend every waking moment focused on her.
I do know this too will pass and soon I will have so much time to blog, you will be sick of me. So until then, stick with me and I will try to post as often as I can.
