Where does the time go?

I always feel like I have to include a picture with each post. So I chose a picture of the beach in Key West from our trip to Florida last month. It was really beautiful there and warm too. I can not believe January is almost over. Where does the time go? I thought I would be well into my next ebook, but instead I am just catching up on some jewelry orders. I have not even gotten any time to make anything new. It is terrible. Thankfully I have been drawing some ideas on paper. There is nothing worse than when you do get some time to create and sit down at the workbench you are like Okay what was it that I wanted to make. LOL!

I have some more bows to make for an upcoming competition. It will be Rachel's first competition with the Showtyme all star junior team. I am excited to see her cheer. She is cheering with an older group of girls which is nice for her, because she gets to learn new skills. Christina also has been busy with the girl's basketball team at her school. So that means I have been VERY busy to say the least. I have been working during the school day 2-3 days a week and I feel like I am at full capacity. Each week I say I will get some time this week to put my paper ideas to actual creations, but really maybe it will be this week. I will than have some jewelry photos to list here on my blog. Now that would be nice.

Where have I been?

Well I have been back for awhile from Disney. Okay, let's talk about how much I love Disney. I am not super obsessed, but I can not wait to go back again. We had a great time this year. My sister in law and her family came a few days after us, and it was nice to share some meals and talk on the phone with her at the parks. Generally we went our separate ways. She has a little one so that leads you a different direction in the parks. We did have fun hanging out with my nephew Domenic. I bribed my daughter Christina to go on the Tower of Terror. She loved it and went on twice, and even got a Disney sweatshirt out of the bribery deal. My daughter Rachel was pampered at the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique. My husband was against it at first. He thought it was a waste of money. (He is so practical. LOL!) Well he saw how much effort I put into finding a small tiara like the one they give you that when I finally made an appointment at the boutique he did not say a word. Well Rachel was beyond excited and it showed all day long. I asked my husband again if it was worth it and he said Yes! How can you resist an appreciative smiling princess daughter? Well I am back in the groove again. It was a slow start to get back in the designing mode. So I am off to create some jewelry orders. I will be back more regularly and I will have some more Disney stories. I did not want to over do it in one post.
