Keep reading for something fun.....

SO, I finally got a chance to sit down and catch my breath. Today's been a little crazy, but good crazy. First thing in the morning, Leila and I headed to the post office to drop off yesterday's orders. Then we went to storytime, had some lunch, got home and put Leila down, and I started on a few orders that came in this morning. I packaged those up and then went onto my computer to upload some pictures when it crashed. Ugh! Thankfully my brother came over and fixed it. He was also sweet enough to stay and hang out with Leila after her nap so I could get some more work done. My blackberry kept beeping and orders kept coming in! It was a little overwhelming but great. Anyways, I finished all my orders, went to the post office again and then went out to dinner with my brother, Ryan (Uncle Roo) and his girlfriend (who I can't wait to become my official sister...hurry up, bud!), Auntie Dana. Leila went to bed shortly after dinner, and here I am. I just finished listing a couple of things and now I'm updating my blog.



I was able to list the Follow Your Heart necklace:


I made a few of the "Follow..." necklaces for the boutiques I was in over the holidays and they sold out before I even got a chance to take a picture!



I was able to list the Faith necklace:




And now, I'm thinking I should do a GIVEAWAY!! What do you think? (And let's make it a good one!)

The best part of my day was walking in the door after a long day at work and seeing 3 crazy boxers welcoming me at the door with wiggle butts in tow. They had tons of kisses for me and I knew the were so happy to have me home. Now I am snuggling with them on the couch.

The most favorite part of my day was Cam saying " Dada, beep, beep, work, bye bye, Dada, hug, beep beep :) Melted my heart

SwishDesigns said...

The best part of my day...heck this was the best part of the whole month of March. I've waited 2 1/2 years for my beautiful daughter to give me not just one kiss in a day but TWO!!! She isn't one to give kisses and when she did it the 1st time I cried! When she did it the 2nd time I laughed and cried at the same time. Ahhh...the little things!!!

Kelly Marie said...

The best part of my day was rough housing with Greyson in my bed and taking pictures to send to daddy.

and I hope to be a mommy squared soon ;)

Awesome stuff Heather! I love all your pieces!

Ashley said...

How about I actually follow the directions? The best part of my day was when my cousin came over to help out with Brady and he just cuddled her on the couch.

Ashley said...

(Trying this again since I'm not too sure the first one went thru) I am so excited that your shop is open again!! The best part of my day was when Sean very seriously demanded a hug, "Mommy gimme hug!" And I got the best set of hugs I have ever received...of course that was followed by Aiden wanting me to join in his silly dance. Gotta love my boys!!

Michelle Z said...

Best part of my day was reading my first book (other than Good Night Moon) to Maddy.. We read "One Fish, Two Fish.." She was in a great mood and seemed to really like me reading to her because she in return just 'talked' my ear off and gave me big smiles!

Heather said...

I'm in Erica's club of trying again, although maybe you have to post it?

Anyway, the best part of my day was when Alex read me "The Hungy Caterpiller". Cracks me up AND I got it on video today!

And also when Alex pretended to sign Cam's card and said "A-l-e-x Frick!" that was pretty good too!

de said...

Wow! Love your pieces! I game over from Ashley's blog (Etsy Inspired). I need to thank her for the referral! You rock!

The favorite part of my day was when I finally got home after a long day, and driving to 3 gas stations (on empty) to find someone that had gas and took credit/debit cards! Crazy.

I love my home and I love being in it. It's peaceful and comfortable and the stress of the day faded away!

StampinCathy said...

WoW the necklaces are just awesome. I just love your creative style. The best part of my day was to hear Adam sing on American Idol. Thanks for a chance.

Laura L said...

The best part of my day was snuggling with my little girl on the recliner watching Sesame Street. She is getting to that age where I don't always get the cuddles I want!

Laura L said...

Ok, I have you linked up on the sidebar of my blog!

SwishDesigns said...

I'm lame! I didn't follow directions (or maybe I was so excited that I forgot???) ;) Anyway, the best part of my day yesterday was hearing Ryan say "I love you too mommy".

janessa said...

The best part of my day today was my DH sending me a picture over email with the subject line reading: "Daddy's hair attempt"

He put Jenna's hair up in a single pony tail, like a whale spout. Super cute, I'm still smiling over the picture.

christi said...

The best part of my day was watching Dane playing on the floor with 2 huge dogs wagging their tails right around him and sniffing him and the cat cruising right by him...and he just LOVED it. Super smiley and giggly...and grabby. It just warms my heart to think of all the great memories they'll make together.

janessa said...

and I just posted it on twitter :) (which also is on my blog)

Rachel said...

The best part of my day was sitting on the couch with Peyton watching Cars (shocking) and he was rubbing my belly and laughing hysterically. When he was done, he leaned over and gave the baby a kiss.

Jenn said...

My day has just started, but it was the fact that my husband got up with the baby instead of me :)

Bre said...

Heather - your work is amazingly beautiful!

The best part of my day today was having Lily with me. Waking me up telling me she 'whoves me' and kissing me!

Off to post!

SAM said...

How fun! The best part of my day (so far) is that my husband came home unexpectedly and we went out for lunch. They screwed up my order, just a little bit - no biggie, but ended up comping my meal. Woo hoo! But the best part was a surprise lunch with my hubby - not the freebie!

STARTING A BLOG! said...

the best part of my day was...
when my 5 year old daughter was at kindergarten today and when a friend of hers began to make fun of my mom ( who is battling breast cancer and is bald) my daughter puffed up and said when my momo(what she calls my mom) gets rid of this cancer bug her hair will grow back and be so pretty but my papa is bald for no reson and it isnt coming back.

gotta love the kids prospective:)

Julie said...

The best part of my day was carrying my sleeping toddler into the house from the car. I love the pure innocence of a sleeping child and that transition is really the only time I get to hold him while he sleeps anymore. I love it!

Mason's Mommy said...

Best part of my day, when my little one gets home from school & says, "Hi Momma!" It makes any awful day at work melt away.

Garrison said...

Hey! Love the new pieces! The best part of my day was this morning at the moms group in church it was my week to work with the kiddos. It was so cute seeing them in there. Prayer time was priceless. After the amen asked the kid next to him, "hey buddy, you got Jesus in your heart?" It was pretty cute!

kirstie101 said...

So far the best part of my day was my mother in law calling to tell me that Brynn's fever went down! But I know my day will get better when I actually get to see her after work tonight!
