Crash Boom Bang!!!
After a looooooong six days, I finally have internet again!!! We had a terrible thunderstorm, and my husband and I both sat straight up in bed after it sounded like someone shot a shotgun in our bedroom. The whole room lit up, and Seth said that he felt like he had just had an x-ray...hee hee! At least one of us had a good night's sleep! Why is it that when I tiptoe through the room, she wakes up over a creak in the floor, but thunder loud enough to shake the house didn't disturb her one bit?!
Before the lightning knocked us in to "Little House on the Prairie," I opened my Etsy store! So, Sew Bananas Boutique is ready for business. I don't have much listed yet (funny, four kids and no t.v. doesn't leave much playtime for mommy), but it is a start. I have a car seat tent listed for a baby girl, and I listed the European Market Totes that some of you inquired about. I am working on bibs right now (all different styles) and I will sew up some more car seat tents after that. I also bought some fabric for making 18" doll ballerina costumes and clothes (perfect for upcoming Christmas presents!). I'm trying to whip up a few hair bows as well (Hannah keeps claiming them all for herself...little heifer!). Check out my store if you get a chance (Etsy button is the little monkey on the top left corner of my blog). For those of you that sell on Etsy, I am always looking for helpful bits of feedback.
