And the other night, G said "I'm going to miss seeing his toothless smiles." I know. Our boy is growing too fast. Too fast for me to even enjoy some of the other things in life out of fear that I'll miss something in his.
So along with getting my blog set up, I've been grappling with the idea of opening my own Etsy store and selling some hand-made crochet items for extra money. I've come up with a pretty good, cute idea that I've been scouring the internet for to see if I'd be infringing on anyone else's wonderful idea - nothing. It's honestly the most simple pattern ever, anyone who can do a single crochet and sew can achieve it. There are those people out there who either can't crochet or don't want to, so my shop is mainly for them. There are a couple other things I would like to sell through my Etsy store, including baby blankets. It is my sincere belief that any new mother should have at least ONE handmade blanket for their new child; I made one for myself (which I plan on selling because we never used it) and received 2. Not everyone has the patience or the skill to make a blanket, so I would like to offer an option for those who would rather purchase one. Granted, unlike my first idea (that I don't want to let go of into the public yet), Etsy is SATURATED with baby blankets. I think mine will stand out, though. My style and color choices aren't usually run of the mill. Small and soft they may be, baby blankets can still be beautifully crafted and rich in color.

Anyway, so that's where I'm at. Expect to see a lot more changes here! I plan on big things for this space!
