Where has the time gone?!

Man, where has the time gone?  I have been so busy trying to balance orders, shows, stock, teaching, my daughter’s schedule and school, house work, Etsy, Facebook, am I missing anything?  Whew!  Anyone have any tips on how to balance it all?  My mom always says you can’t do it all, but I have that drive to do it all.
Anywhooo, I am glad to be back.  It is time to get into the swing of things starting with sharing all the upcoming sales for black Friday and cyber Monday brought to you by the EtsyKids team! 
TZ Burps! Will be offering custom owl pillows (aka custom owlets) at a discounted price of $17 that is a savings of $5, $20 shipped!!  This offer will begin now for all blog and facebook followers just email to place an order.
In the time that I have been missing from here, I have had the pleasure of being featured on 20 Best Twenty, The Little Hedgehog, and My Little Pixies.  Great people, great bloggers great sites, great products.  Check em out!

Busy, Busy, Busy...

Where has the summer gone?  Back to work for me as a teacher began last week, then an earthquake, followed by a hurricane!  What a crazy week.  Things are getting back to normal, kids returned to school mid-week, and now it is time to balance work, sewing, and family.  Not an easy task, but I am sure it will all work out.

In other news, TZ Burps is being featured today on Tutus and Tea Parties blog for freebie Friday!  You can check out her super cute blog and enter to win a custom princess owlet.  Giveaway runs until 9/16/11.  Make sure you let her know I sent you!  Good luck to you all.  Hope you enjoy the rest of your summers and make the most of your long labor day weekend.  Maybe you have something fun planned.  Would love to hear what.  We will be celebrating my mom's birthday with a cookout-yum!

Back Home

Just got back from a wonderful time at the beach with friends.  My good friend invited my daughter and I to come stay with her and her family for a few days at Ocean City, MD.  It was just what we needed!  Family time away without the computer, Internet, sewing machine, to do lists, etc.
