Tonight will be our first attempt at laying the boy down after he eats and waiting for him to sleep on his own. Sounds simple enough, right? Well, it is only 9:41 pm and he is already really cranky. As I type, he is doing my favorite whine. I am sure that in the next hour I will need to set up the monitor, so we can watch the red line shoot to the highest setting, all the while, listening to some calming music on my headphones to avoid his sad puppy dog cry. Wish me luck...if all the books are right, maybe only a week of torture until he sleeps a respectable 6-8 hours without waking.

Today marks the day of our first sale with the new line of fabric! We have started out with 7 bolts of glorious Erin Mc Morris Park Slope fabric from Free Spirit. We also snuck in one bolt from Anna Maria Horner as well. It has been a busy few weeks with getting all of the buisness stuff in order. We ordered the first line, and was told a 7-10 day turn around for it to be shipped out. What a special surprise when it only took 5 days to get it at my door. We have started to post it on Etsy, aling with the de-stash that is forever being posted. Since we made our first sale, I have some pictures of the line and the first cut...If you want to see our shop, visit:

After always wanting to be my own boss, it might actually be happening soon. Although technically, I will be starting the venture with my mother. So, actually it will be like it's always been. She will be my boss. I know what you're thinking. Working with your mother....not my idea of a good time. Well, our relationship is not like that of most mother-daughters. We actually have a great relationship! She is my mother, and my friend, and now my partner. For now, staying at home with my son is the best blessing I have. But I can't wait to have something that will benefit my family first. With that said, I will be posting daily to let everyone know the trials of starting this adventure. I am sure they will be interesting... plus, the boy is growing so fast...you will need more frequent updates.
