She can do lots of fun stuff. I'm not even really sure how I ever used a single needle machine now that I have this one. My Naptime Craft Mommy business has taken off and I've also started listing a few items on Etsy. The Very Hungry Caterpillar birthday theme is hugely popular right now, and my shirt has been a hit too!
I try not to list too many so as to not get in over my head, but so far they are good sellers! I have to realize that on a daily basis, I'm good if I get 2 hours of work time (while the babes nap, of course) so I can *maybe* get two shirts or items done a day. In addition do making custom shirts, I have also started selling the awesome products from Oh Mint!
Here is my "Everything Tote" with my biz name on it. This bag is great!
Another neat thing that I have been involved in is Relay for Life. Since I was diagnosed with cancer, this has been an important cause to me. Last year I was on a team with other staff members from the school where I worked. Now that I am a SAHM and we live in a different city than where I taught, I decided to participate on a Relay team closer to home. One of my friends is also a Thyroid cancer survivor so we were co-captains. I held an auction on my FB page and was able to secure a sponsorship for Relay as well. These helped me finish as the number 2 top fundraiser out of 1,276 participants! Woot woot! I loved being so involved with Relay and have been asked to be a committee member next year! I am honored to be asked and will definitely do this!
The family is well- the kids are growing like weeds and keeping us busy! Being able to be home with them has been such a blessing!
I'm not making any promises that I can't keep, but I do HOPE to be able to blog more often. I have so many posts in my head and ideas of posts.... it's just a matter of finding the time to do so!
