A roller-coaster ride

Whew! I'm pooped!

Blogging in two different places can really wear a person out.
Especially when it's coupled with Spring Break and four little kids
with serious cabin fever because of a massive blizzard that hit our house this week. (Boo!)

Throw in Microsoft's automatic update corrupting Windows on our computer and making it crash! Seriously, this happened on Wednesday and I still needed to finish the bag tutorial for the next day! Fortunately my husband's wonderful co-workers (a big shout-out to Brent and Daniel) went above and beyond the call of duty to miraculously re-install Windows and restore my computer to me by Wednesday night.

Another big shout-out to other people who pitched-in to help me get ready for Design Mom. Like my wonderful sister, Laura, and my fabulous brother-in-law, Nathan, for taking some great pictures, including this behind the scenes shot:
And the lovely Laura Lucille for creating such wonderful banners for this blog and my etsy store.
Seriously, this girl has skills - skills that I do not posses.
She also has a lovely blog (and a cool etsy shop) that you should visit here.

And many thanks to my husband (who gallantly rescued me in my computer-crash meltdown) and kids (who have probably watched a little too much TV this week - please do not report me to Child Protective Services) for their patience.

(this is starting to sound like the academy awards)

And finally, thanks to YOU for stopping by or leaving a nice comment.
I've so enjoyed meeting new friends and I hope you come back again soon.
(Like Monday, if you want, because there is going to be a sweet giveaway in celebration of all this.)

Have a happy weekend, folks.
And now, if you'll excuse me, I've got some serious laundry to catch-up on.


  1. Glad that you survived all of the drama! You know that everything always happens at one time.

    Enjoy your weekend because you deserve it!

  2. well you better get going on that laundry pile. I know by experience it doesn't clean itself! ha ha
    we are having some weird weather over here too. Some days are in the 70's and then 3 days later there is snow! Strange!

Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam. I'm hoping Blogger will make a way where people who are not registered users, but would like to leave a comment can do so. Please, Blogger! In the mean time, thanks for your patience.

I also love to respond to questions. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can get back to you. Or you can email me directly: amy @ Thanks!
