Taking a Breath

After all the excitement of Christmas, a house overflowing with family and more cookies than one person should eat, I find myself looking toward the New Year and all that it will bring. First on my list is to become more organized! They say you can teach an old dog new tricks, and I am hoping that is true, because I could use to be more organized. Both in my everyday life and in my Etsy shop.
    Having gotten a five year old late last spring, by the way she keeps me young, LOL. I had to redo many of my routines to fit around, her, school and all that goes with being now six. I need to have time to answer the hundreds of "why" questions and can I have a snack zillions of times a day. On top of that I have five grown kids, eleven grandkids and three great grand sons, along with a few kids we just tossed in for good measure. A hubby, two small dogs and that rounds out my life. Busy, yes but very blessed.
  My Etsy shop that I started a few years ago, for a way to sell a few things has done very well, but I know could be better if I used my time wisely and planned ahead. So, that is on my New Years to do list.
   I want to share a few things with you that have been fun to make as well as brought smiles to many faces.
