and it will be a while longer. I just thought I'd let any readers out there know that I am alive. :P Some pretty big changes have happened in my life over the past couple of months.
- I am now a single mom.
- The kids and I have moved to North Delta
- I begin classes at Kwantlen in Richmond on Tuesday, February 10. Just upgrading for now, but hopefully I will be enrolled in a nursing program come this summer, or September at the latest!
- I don't have a computer! Well, I do... but I'm having a hard time getting windows running properly.
We are doing alright, though. Starting to get out in the new area... meeting people, and such. :)
This is a testiment, in my opinion, of my commitment to Sweet Earth Soaps. It just directs to my etsy shop right now, but I'm hoping that by the end of next month I'll have a fully functioning website :) I'll likely be moving my blog somewhere on to the site as well, at some point. We shall see! :D
I made my very first etsy sale! Oh joy, oh happiness! What a colossal ocassion!
While I have been selling for years, I've only recently started really trying on etsy in the last few months. Finally, it pays off.
Recently, I was pleased to discover a large package on my doorstep. My mod swap gift from a fellow hyenacart forum moderator. Inside was such a wealth of goodies! A wonderful purse in my all-time favorite fabric, some funny knitting themed bumper stickers, a drop spindle and some lovely roving. Even a little sample of tussah silk - divine!
I broke in to one of the rovings right away, following a video on youtube for instruction. In a matter of two hours, or so, I'd turned a little pile of roving into a beautiful, relatively even bulky yarn. (stopping once to stop keilyn from cutting the other roving more than she already had and usher the kids off to bed *blush* lesson learned, I shouldn't be trying to learn a new craft when the kids are awake)
I also ventured out with the kids to show the Saturday vendors some love. The usual suspects were there, and some new as well. The lighting was a little better for photo taking, being during the day instead of the evening.

You can catch me at Maternal Creations tonight! I am so excited! I had a great time last year, met some very cool people and I have actually been looking forward to this craft fair all year. I just wish I were better prepared! I feel as though we're quite lacking in the knits area. Soap - not so much :P
Here is a sneak peak at what will be on the table.
There will be so much awe inspiring talent in this one little space, it's worth a visit even if you are done your Holiday gift shopping.
