Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone. The day where everyone is a little Irish. Well, I'm pretty Irish everyday ;-)
I made my obligatory corned beef and roasted veggies last week. I wish I would have gotten a photo of it because it was a thing of beauty, but it was devoured before I could, which is a good thing I guess. I know it's pretty stereotypical to make one, but I just can't help myself. They are sooooo good. Just like my weird obsession with Shamrock shakes (don't lie, you know you have one too). But I'll save that for another day. Let's move onto some beady goodness. Well beady business goodness. Fun I know.
I've been working on some new beaded items. Progress has been slow, real slow. I only get time to work during nap time and at night, but let's face it, most nights I collapse on the couch without doing much. Who knew having a baby would be so exhausting ;-) I'll try to get some progress shots soon. But you should check out my Instagram account because I'm always posting fun things there. The link is below because for some reason I can't seem to add hyperlinks to anything right now. Blah.
I've also been working on my whole business model. I've been reading some new books and listening to a bunch of podcasts (especially ones geared towards introverts). After taking a few years off, I need to get back in the game. I need to get my butt in gear. I need my motivation back. Seriously, having a baby really changed a lot of things. I mean I obviously don't have the time I use to have. I'm having to learn all over again how to manage what time I do have. I did learn last week that I can get a little bit of work done by giving LO some fabric to play with. She was having all sorts of fun waving it around and playing peek a boo. Oh to be a child again. But that does means I can get things done while she's with me, I just have to figure out how. I know lots of parents do it, so there is hope for me.
That's all I have for now, just some random ramblings. Now I have to go back to taking my class on logo design, something else I'm working on. But I'll leave you with a pretty beady photo.
I hope everyone has a great St. Patrick's Day and a great weekend. I'll see you all next week. Stay crafty.
Just a girl that loves to bead, take photos, and cuddle with her new baby and her pug.
