Taking the next week off

I'm hoping to force myself to take the next week off to catch up on some stuff around the house (like the 10 piles of clothes throughout our home that need to be put away). I'll still be online, checking emails and shipping bags but probably won't list anything new for about a week.

Wednesday's Bags for Etsy

I've been able to get back into sewing yesterday and today. This first bag is a new fabric I bought a few weeks ago at Betty's and kept going back and forth on whether to get it. Since it went with those freakin Amy Butler dots I use on every bag, I had to buy it. I haven't done a little girl's bag in a while and was kind of in the mood for something quick and fun. I'm really happy with the end result but the Easter little girl's bag I did never sold and it was way cuter so I'm not getting my hopes up.

What I worked on last week

I swear I wasn't just sitting on my ass last week. I didn't sew as much as I'd like to but I was able to complete a custom order for one of my mom's teacher friends and a monogrammed bag for my niece's birthday. I liked the bag so much, I made one for myself and already used it for an out of town trip last weekend. We'll be out of town yet again this weekend so no sewing for a few days. Side note about Crafty Mama...I hate traveling. I think the fact that it takes a half a day to pack and then what seems like a week to unpack (when you have young kids) just ruins the whole idea of travel being fun. That, and we don't really go anywhere fun. Just to the hotter than hell central valley to visit family. Ok, enough ranting, I'll just try to focus on looking forward to our camping trip in August.

This Week's Bags

I'm a little behind on my blogging, but here are my bags for Etsy this week. I seem to be in a tropical floral mood.

I think my sewing is going to slow down a little for the summer. We have a lot of weekend trips planned (too many, and not fun enough, if you ask me) and Bella's school schedule is going to change soon which will cut down my sewing time.
