The thing about weekends that I love is the pace change up. Everything seems a little bit more laid back, a little bit more chill. Donuts are not a normal Tuesday breakfast, but Saturday? Perfectly acceptable. Pajamas are completely appropriate at 12:14pm and reading is a must.
We like to explore on the weekends too…find new things, eat new food, see new sites. I love the extra time we get because all other responsibilities are for the weekday.
Weekends to me mean extra time to think…

Sometimes life feels like a hamster wheel and I hate that feeling. This summer has brought so many fun adventures and new things and I love that, but in other ways I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. Home, Etsy, kids, school, meals…things can add up fast and I feel like I need a break from something…like I’m unfocused because there’s too many things on the table right now.
I’ve decided to close my shop for a while…focus on other things. I have so many ideas and my brain never seems to stop in the creating part of it, but I feel like it’s something I have to do. Tentatively, I’m thinking about a big reopen sign in October. But that too could change.
I’ve been praying for God to show me which direction to go…where my talents lie. I feel so uncertain sometimes. I have ideas and aspirations but I also have three kids that need me. When I am sitting at my sewing machine sometimes I feel so guilty…I wonder if it’s worth it right now. I have some other ideas in the works that I feel better suit my family and my needs for the time being. I feel like God might be leading me in a different way. In the meantime while my shop is closed, I’m really going to streamline my items that I decided to create. Something’s gotta give.
That feeling when someone seeks you out to do custom work or when a magazine decides to feature you…twice(!).. it’s so awesome…I love it. So it’s hard to take a break, but sometimes the hard stuff is synonymous with the right stuff and you have to just do it anyway.
So…on August 5th, I’ll be closing up shop for a couple months which means I need to clear space on my shelves for new stuff.
I want to offer 30% off everything in my shop so I can clean off the shelves a bit.
Right now I have a long trip to plan for, school plans to organize, and a house to clean. I also have some fun posts in the works as well as something I’ve been working on that I can’t wait to share. The Happy Day Challenge is taking a little break as well. I feel like I can’t have weekly deadlines right now or I just might burst into little pieces…and self-induced deadlines are the worst, so I’m cutting some slack for my little ol’ self.
