hello! ohhh i’m sorry for being such a bad blogger! it isn’t even that i have nothing to say or that nothing’s doing–so much! all the time! i’m just Tired. but in a good way! not complaining.
friday, my oldest (uh, longest-running?) friend, karie came to town for a baby shower that genevieve so kindly hosted for the sprout and me on saturday. it was so sweet and amazing and though these things tend to make me Very Nervous, we were surrounded by some of the most awesome ladies of all time and received some of the very best and sure to be most treasured handmade gifts. it feels sort of strange bragging about them…sorry! but i was so blown away.
honestly, when we found out that we were with sprout, i was a little bit embarrassed and nervous to tell friends and family because, let’s be honest here, though we had talked about it quite a bit and planned on raising Future Sprout, this little guy caught us by surprise. true to form, (or at least, old form, which i am slowly but surely un-learning) i expected judgment and wagging fingers, so the outpouring of happiness and support has been overwhelmingly wonderful. thank yous, all around.
anyway, i don’t want to gush and mush too much right now! there’s other stuff, right?
stuff like…fixing my serger!!!
the parts arrived and i seriously doubted that i would be able to put them all back into place properly (not knowing where in the world that spring that shot out had come from) but i did! and lo, it works! and it is good. so i posted some more undies to etsy yesterday and today i am going to try to finish a wholesale order of patchwork undies. completed cuteness to be revealed tomorrow! or at least, in-progress cuteness.
and i desperately want to make some more tops for the shop. and work on sprout’s quilt (though he now has two AMAZING quilts and the baddest rasta baby afghan ever) and maybe some other things…? before i become so blimpy i can’t even sit down. we. shall. see.
oh and one more thing that i just discovered: modish wrote about dear birthday yesterday! so sweet. thank you!
oh wait, i lied. one more thing: did you know that you can subscribe to etsy shop updates via your rss reader? like bloglines or google reader or whatever? i discovered this a while back, but hadn’t put it into practice until today. it’s nice for people like me who have so many favorites that the originals get lost, since etsy organizes them chronologically by when you added them (annoying! alphabetize!). to subscribe to your favorites feed, just go to your favorites page and click on “subscribe to favorites feed” in the upper right. you can also subscribe to individual shop feeds on that shop’s main page: it’s the last link in the right hand column. sorry if this is old news to you etsy pros, or completely baffling to non-etsy users. i’m a big dorky blog reader, so to me it’s a rad feature that allows me to while away Even More time in front of the computer! yes!
also, can you tell that my former etsy ambivalence has been erased by the etsy bug? it’s true. i’m not sure it’s entirely healthy, but i’m a serious convert.
