Switching over

A majority of my posts are written on an ipad, which would be all fine and dandy if I had a good bluetooth keyboard. Alas, the one we have is old and gross and the keys stick. So it between using the screen keyboard and the battery life, the idea of sitting down and writing a post is sometimes something I dread.

However I have managed to remember my password and now here I am writing to you from Toph’s old work laptop. It’s fast and sleek and I love to hear the clicking of the keys on the keyboard.

I have recently discovered that I am a fan of making things for little ones. While my little ones are now 10 & 13 and no longer fans of moms homemade items, both of my best friends have little ones that still enjoy the knit and crocheted gifts from their auntie.

Recently I made a pair of baby booties and a sweater for the little one my best friend welcomed at the beginning of the year.

It made me realize quickly that I needed to buy an assortment of wooden buttons, because I will absolutely be making this sweater again. It worked up fast and I’m sure had my husband not introduced me to Stardew Valley well…it would have been finished faster.

The girls have started their own business making soaps, scrubs, and bath bombs. Once a name is settled up I will post an etsy link. Here are a few of the lovely soaps they have recently made

Last year for home schooling I had them start their own business, with their profit of $85 and a little funding from myself, they put it all into supplies and have already made some money back!

I am still working on the socks Griffin Socks, slowly but surely I am on repeat round 2 of 3 of the chart and I started making a dress for my other best friends 7 year old.

Here’s hoping the rest of the dress goes smoothly, the patterns had some weird bumps along the way so I switched things up a bit.

 

Have a great weekend folks!
