Good Morning! Well, February definitely just flew right by, without so much as a whisper almost! Looking forward to the next few months, I have a crazy busy, but exciting spring ahead of me!
My customs are currently filled to the brim, so I've been sewing like crazy! I'm debating on filling up to the end of March then closing for the entire month of April to prep for the Spring Merry Makers Fair & plan the girls birthdays. Both my youngest girls have birthdays in April, exactly 2 weeks apart. Generally I don't close my customs for so long, but I have a feeling that this craft fair is going to be a good one and I'd love to have a nice full table! With lots of wallets, NCW's, some mens cork items, gift items, etc...
Today I'm rewriting my customs list to see where I'm sitting, just exactly how far into March I've booked myself and I'll decide whether to simply fill till the end of the month. I think I may just do that because the back end of things - pulling fabrics, working out the details etc... can get very time consuming so if I have my month ahead filled, I would save myself the time/effort of dealing with that part for a while.
I have 2 **BIG** sewing gigs just about to start, I'm just waiting on the final details then I'll be able share what I'm so excited about!! But they are going to keep me busy as well, so it's a good thing I've dropped my customs to 4 days a week instead of 5.
On another note, I've spent so much on groceries over the last 2 weeks that I've decided to totally skip grocery shopping this week which gives me a little break! I don't love grocery shopping as it always takes me so long. I'm shopping for us and I'm shopping for my inlaws. Which is fine, but it takes up my entire morning usually, so a break is nice this week! I have a meal plan for the entire week planned out so we'll be fine till early next week without a problem. We may need to pick up the odd item here & there, but nothing substantial at least.
I need to write up our March budget today as our month starts tomorrow. I also need see what to plan for this upcoming March. I don't think there's much going on this month which is a good thing, 'cause April is always an expensive month for us with Easter and the girls birthdays!
In general kids are just expensive. With child #2 heading University probably within a year's time we're going out today to shop for a new laptop. Currently the kids all share a Macbook but that doesn't go well usually, and the younger two have games on it that slow it down, etc... so we're going to BestBuy today to see what we can find. We need it to be fast, higher end and to
I have 2 wallets on my customs list today and the girls hs'ing so I need to be uber productive today! So with that I'm off for now. Enjoy your day!
