I’m Back……………

I have been so super busy!  I have been trying to get my 3 year old ready for preschool, my 6 year old ready for 2nd grade, and apparently this month is the hot month for me to make cakes!  I am just now starting to get back into the groove with sales starting up for the winter months!  I am always super busy during the colder months.  I have a lot of new things that I have been trying to spread out and keep everyone interacting with my Facebook page as possible!  As a Mad Mad Maker one of the biggest things for me to keep up on is having my present year round.  With 3 kids it is really hard when all they want to do it play outside.  I have had to get creative this year so that I could keep crocheting while they played.    I have been debating with myself whether or not to enter into the local craft shows.  I found a website that allowed me to have the contact info for the 3 biggest ones around Northern Kentucky area.  I am scared to go ahead and enter myself into these craft shows one is because shoppers like instant gratification.  I don’t feel that I have enough merchandise ready to be shipped and out the door for 5000 + shoppers for that fair.  I think that I will be ready for sure next year.  But I have also been looking at the smaller craft shows that are not so local.  I am just so torn on what to do.  If all else fails there is always next year right?!

Anyways here is a few pictures of what I have been up to lately.  Enjoy!

Long time no post…….

Hello everyone!  I just wanted to come and let you know what is going on with me as to why I am not posting as much as I should!  We are in the process of purchasing the home that we have been renting for the past 2 years.  Yay us!  I am so excited to be able to make this house a home and more comfy.  We have wanted to update a few things here and there but resisted the urge to do so until the home is ours 100%.  I can not wait to put my style into this house and make it more suitable than what it already is!

The appraiser came yesterday.  We should know within a week what they think our home is worth.  That is one more step in the right direction!  We have been cleaning like crazy!  Not saying that my house is dirty.  But with 3 small children in the home and the way they grow, and how grandmas buy them toys all of the time.  Things sure do accumulate pretty quickly.  So I have been purging, cleaning, and getting things that don’t fit into tubs and out into the garage for a yard sale later in the season.  So in between baseball games and practice, going and seeing everyone’s babies (everyone we know is having babies around us!), cleaning and purging, cub scouts, and making time for family.  We are a pretty busy family in the spring of each year.

I am so excited to be able to use some of the ideas that I have found on Pinterest!  The hubby is just as excited as I am about making the house into our home.  He is already looking into finishing the basement.  Which might be a job all by itself since it is a block foundation and leaks when we have really hard rain.

I am hoping to get back into the swing of things and producing at least one new item to my shop every week!  So stay tuned. I might just start showing the progress of our home remodel too!  I haven’t decided on that one yet.  Let me know what you think I should do.  Leave a comment!!!!

Talk to you soon!
