Well friends I am ashamed to say that the only reason I am blogging right now is because I am having one of my sleepless nights! I am also a teensy bit excited because my son is starting school tomorrow! I managed to get him enrolled in a much better school and on track. I may feel excited now, but I will let you know how its working out when he gets 5 weeks off at xmas (eek, did I think this through properly?)

My little shop has been CRAZY, I have never had so many sales in 1 month and I have never had such a high Etsy bill. I had to shut up shop for a couple of weeks for a break and to enjoy some of the summer with my little guy, but plan to go full speed ahead and try to double what I did last time. Might be a bit ambitious, but worth a try. I'm still not going to show you what I bought on Etsy last time as I am still sulking over those scarfs.

Things that caught my attention this time around though seem to follow a same theme of involving me to create, which is not a bad thing but growing this bonsai from seeds by EOBotanicals I think for me will be near darn impossible.

Isn't it just beautiful! I am in awe of all bonsai and bonsai growers.

Now this by UrbanCheesecraft looks all kinds of fun!

Its the kind of thing I would love to give or receive as a gift, but would never buy for myself. Firstly it would probably just sit in my cupboard and secondly I would have no idea what to use it for. I think I am in love with the idea of this mostly and will probably end up buying one for some random person just because I like it.

Finally I would love to receive this by StonehouseStudio as a gift,

but alas, I don't mix in the right circles to get such an extravagant gift. Ah well, one day!

Before I sign off and try to catch a doze on the couch before the day starts, does anyone know if there is another way to add photo's to your blog at the point of where you are typing? Mine go to the beginning of the post and I have to drag them dooowwwwwnnnnn and it takes me ages, well longer than I would like and is frankly quite annoying.

Hello, looks like you are a bit like me with my blog, intermittent! Maybe we should read each others and have a good reason to write? Sarah
