Baby steps…

So I told myself today I would work on crafting, since Dec will be here before you know it and we’ll be getting ready for craft fairs.  So i said I’d complete 3 pairs of baby shoes.  I know, that’s not much considering how simple they are – but between that and watching and keeping my 4 year old occupied, it is quite an accomplishment, and as the title suggests…baby steps.

How cute are these?

I also finished a pair of reconstructed shorts and a zipper pouch!  I’m on my way to craft fair inventory, lol!

Summer rolls, how I love thee…

So, there’s this place near my work (1/2 a mile to be exact) and they have the best summer rolls.  I make the walk at least once a week.  They are so light and fresh and filling.  They have those white cold noodles, shrimp, mint, lettuce.. they are a pretty healthy alternative to my walking in the opposite direction, to the plate lunch place.  Anyhow, I love summer rolls. 

Yummo!

So on a seperate note, I went to another establishment to pick up dinner one night.  While waiting for my food, I noticed this lovely sign in the window…

I mean really?  If you decided you wanted to give someone less fortunate your hard earned money, or buy them a burger – do you think the Management of the food establishment has the right to tell you that you can or cannot?

Online selling…

Does anyone have an online shop?  I have an etsy shop, and sometimes feel overwhelmed at all the sellers and how do I compete.  I hope to have a re-opening of the shop, to follow my “projects” post – I really need to get focused and get going!

Hope to make time to work on new projects…

I know everyone out there has things they want to do, but are just so busy, tired, etc.  I have so many ideas, things in my mind and I read so much about how if you want to do something, you make the time.  But man, when that bed is calling my name, when that TV show has me hooked, I find a hard time focusing on those ideas in my head.  It’s lame, I know.  I really hope to get going on some projects.  Anyone working on anything big?

Taking a break…

I had a training for work in Waikiki, and anyone who knows me knows I rarely go into Waikiki.   So on my way downstairs during our break to get a Starbucks, I noticed a pond they had, and really pretty flowers.  So I took out my trusty camera, which goes with me everywhere…again, it’s important to stop and admire the beauty of what’s around us, instead of rushing on by to get your mocha frappacino
