How about an update?

Okay, so maybe it's not that cool to you, but just check out all this praise! I've been featured on a super blog again, and ... well, there's just nothing quite like 100+ comments praising your work. Really.

And I get all that just for sending a cute hat to somebody! And then sending some slippers to one lucky person.

Of course, praise doesn't do much good unless I'm making sales, too. Which I am. Record breaking. Not earth-shattering, thankfully.

Breaking a small personal record is quite exciting enough for now, thanks.

I'm thinking about trying to take a break from custom orders for a little while, and build up some inventory. I don't know if that would slow sales too much, or help out in the long run. It would certainly ease a little stress for a while. You know, to have some time to just chill and create whatever I please. (I still have a huge stash of wool that I haven't done a thing with.) Not that I'm complaining about making 6 pairs of yellow slippers in a few days time. lol.

Enough Etsy ramble.

In case you're wondering, I still love my job at preschool.

I am very thankful that I didn't get what I wanted to begin with.
I wanted 4 days, and I got 2.
I was disappointed, but now I see that it's exactly what I needed. 2 days leaves me with enough time to work on etsy, and ... well, do whatever it is that I do.
And somehow, even those 2 little mornings are tiring. :P But see this cuteness? The frustration of flying wood chips, biting children, and smashed up goldfish is nothing in comparison.
Or comparatively insignificant, anyhow. ha!

Lest I sound too saintly here, I admit I got pretty fed up today. But the "bye bye, Miss Caitin! See you latah!" at noon really makes things a lot better.

A random thought :
I wonder if any of those parents ever walk in and see me, thinking, "That's the teacher? Why have they got a child watching my kids?!"

Well, there's been more going on, but that's all for now. :)
Hopefully I'll be back soon.


  1. Very cute pic!! And I little kids love engergetic young adults to hang out with, therefore as a parent I am thrilled when my child is having a joyful time. So I am sure the parents of your kids are happy too. And you have 6 sibblings?!!
