few things ...

I am so swamped with orders right now. Both from my Etsy shops and custom orders. Did I ever tell you having a baby is like having another full-time job? Sometimes I wonder when do I ever find the time to sew. Maybe I actually sew when I sleep. I don't know. It's like I magically produce all these things for my shops. I wish I had Doraemon. If you don't know him, just forget what I just said. But if you do know him, you know what I am talking about and I know you wish you had him too!! admit it.

So. After much thinking, I have decided to momentarily stop taking custom orders. I need to catch up on restocking my Etsy shops. They are looking pretty old right now. I keep on relisting things I sold. What I want is to list new things. Like a veggie shop, you want something fresh. I run three one-woman Etsy shops, though one of them doesn't require much work really (talking about my vintage shop). Yes it gets hectic for me sometimes.

I have few new things in the making right now for my Etsy shops---both baby and pouches shop. I want to introduce new items. Then have a giveaway here. I am also thinking of hosting giveaways at my bloggie friends's blogs. Should be fun, right?

And on top of all this madness, I am also thinking of creating a craft group. This is just a maybe. If I have the time. I envision of a craft group that meets once a month for 1 - 2 hour. Do fun and easy craft projects. Nothing serious. Swapping ideas. Connecting with other crafters in town. Oh and it has to be free. I mean, sure you have to bring your own supplies and all to the meeting but other than that, no fees to join. I'll give update on this later.


happy to say....

Wheww. A week has passed by since last I posted here.
The fundraising event for baby Ayden Driggers was a HUGE success!! I am happy to report that. The salon (I believe) was able to raised about $3000. And my little shop that I set up inside the salon was able to raise $245!! WOOOHOOOOO!!
I gave the money directly to Nicky Driggers, Ayden's mom. Oh I got to meet her btw. I was so happy to finally be able to meet her. She is a very, very sweet lady and I truly admire her strength in dealing with this difficult situation. I told her I'd like to meet baby Ayden in person someday. She proposed a playdate and a reunion! How wonderful. I can't wait already :)

Another update I'd like to report: my Etsy shops has been able to raise a little more than $350!!!! Woooohoooo. So in total as of today: close to $600!! Wow. I am amazed by everyone's generosity. People keep on buying items from my shop to help Ayden. For those of you who has made purchase(s) through my Etsy shop for Ayden, huge THANK YOU for you!!! I am not related to the Driggers at all but I know how much this means for them. And I cannot wait to send the check to Ayden's family :)

I have 3 more days left to raise more money for Ayden. Please let everyone know about this :)

Happy Saturday!!
