Everything is just buzzing around here. Studio is busy, orders are flying in, time just seems to fly by and there is so much going on with the family this time of year. Both of my sons have January birthdays, a week apart so we have been busy planning and entertaining.
His celebration extended over a whole weekend and included a Minnesota Gopher Gymnastics meet where he got to be the announcer for a few minutes!! A Monster Truck Show with 4 friends, a Gymnastics meet where he had his best scoring meet so far this season, a trip to see the Tooth Fairy at the movies, Jimmy John's subs and of course birthday cake shared with friends and neighbors. Lots of fun but parents quite exhausted after the weekend. I lucked out in the drawing for which parent did what....I didn't have to go to the Monster Truck show, I however had to watch buff, college gymnast bodies at the Gopher meet and saw Dwayne "the Rock" as the Tooth Fairy.....not too bad!!
Next up.....Atli is turning 17 next Sunday! Yes, can you believe I have a 17 year old!! Well, I can't. I asked if we could rewind and if he would be ok with starting over at age 15? Nope, no such luck. I am just going to have to face it, I am not getting any younger and neither are my kids. No big plans yet for the weekend, but I am sure he will come up with some things he wants to do. They will probably NOT include his parents so maybe it will be a relaxing weekend for me. Somehow I am going to have to embarrass him one way or another, it's hard with this kid.
I have been very busy working on new designs for spring market, but every time I get busy in the studio, I have to clean out. This time I did some big time spring cleaning....or winter cleaning and found some leftover kits from shows and lectures. Many of them consist of my fabric lines that have been discontinued so I thought I would share the love since those aren't available in shops any more. I loaded a few up on my Etsy site that I am ready to part with and some of you might be interested in, but there is very limited quantity so act fast. I also listed them at a discounted original price because I am in clean out mode!!
These are the kits that are available now, I will be putting more up next week.
