Spring is almost here! It was actually "warm" today! The boys played outside - took their sandbox toys and shoveled the snow... They said they had to get rid of the "garbage"... hmmm...

I can't believe it but Connor turned 5 on Sunday! I'm starting to feel old! I never ever thought I would have a 5 year old - Soon I'll be saying, "I never ever thought I would have an 18 year old!" haha!

I'm working on my "spring line" of jewelry - trying to get some creative work in whenever I can. I have a ton of vintage beads to play with and have been working on some long dangly, delicate flower earrings. A lot like my poppy earrings inspired by Sheri Burhoe's work.

I'm a BAD blogger! Sawyer Alva Meddles is here! and in fact has been here for a whole 6 weeks now. Whew! Where does the time go? He is the chubbiest, most content, smiley baby I've ever known.... :) He sleeps through the night... smiles and coos all day.... eats, poops and generally just has a good time.

I'm quite thankful for this peaceful little baby as my last son (middle child) was, and is, quite the handful (in fact I don't think I've slept more than 3 hours a night since he was born almost 3 years ago!!

We're enjoying the new baby smell in the house.... and my blogging skills will weaken further as I try to catch up on my Etsy orders. I have all kinds of creative thoughts swirling around in my brain.... Just looking for an opportunity to use them. I wish I could hire someone to do all of my paper work. Between photographing my jewelry, uploading it to etsy, writing descriptions, pricing things on my costing template, ordering supplies, processing orders, packing stuff up.... well - I have no time to actually make anything! Who can I hire to take care of all of this stuff (plus do a little babysitting once in a while) out here in the middle of nowhere, in a messy house, for next to nothing pay. haha! hmmm.... guess I have to keep doing it.
