S



S is for


the machine stitched cards I made and the awesome address stamp I purchased from sweetpaperie.etsy.com making a great gift for my bestest real-life friend on her birthday:


birthday gift for my friend


S is for Samantha, my first born. Smart, snarky, sweet, snotty, sassy, sensitive.





S is for school. I love the two Catholic Schools that start with S that educate our daughters. They are costing me small fortune but are worth every penny.


S is for sewing. I made this apron for Julia while she was running in and out of my sewing room asking what I was sewing, I told her a curtain......she was so surprised when she found out it was an apron for her!


Happy Birthday Julia!


S is for selling what you make. I continue to have mixed feelings about it. I make and sell things as a second job (as opposed to leaving my house and working for someone else at night) but it's still much more fun to make things and give 'em away.

I agree with you on selling stuff. Making stuff to sell isn't as much fun as giving things away.

I know exactly what you mean about sewing/selling! I would always rather give stuff away to someone who will appreicate it. I am constanly taking things out of my Etsy shop for a gift or donation. Oh well! :-)

I love your "S" items and appreciate the link to the address stamp which I shall check out in a few minutes.

Thank you for saying what you did about giving away and selling. I love to give gifts but have been thinking about making some things and opening an Etsy shop. My issue is turning my bliss into work. Maybe there's a happy balance but I'll have to think about this more.
