Random Friday: Christmas in September

  • On Sunday I posted my declaration of intent to use my Etsy shop as a full time job.
  • On Monday, I had a panic attack about that very thing. Am I crazy?

  • Then I ignored those mean voices in my head and made this stocking.
  • The first few people I showed it to loved it. The next few hated it. What do you think?
  • I started a new blog series over at the Made by Lisah blog about Product Development. I'd love it if you would go over and comment. I'd love it more if you'd go over and follow the blog!
  • Speaking of the other blog, have you all gone over to enter my giveaway for Digital Scrapbook Software?
  • On Wednesday it was 49 degrees out when I sent the Pirate off to school. It was 87 when I picked him up from school. How're you supposed to dress for that?
  • Did you see my tutorial for making Friendship Bracelets? (Hint: it's not what you think.)
  • Yesterday Trish posted about her favorite song, which shoved me right down the rabbit hole of looking up songs from my past. Now it's 24 hours later and I'm still randomly listing to songs.
  • The Pirate had his parent-teacher conference. There was nothing noteworthy to mention, except that he's a good kid and gets along with others. Yay!
  • This weekend the Pirate starts selling his Boy Scout popcorn. If you're in the market for popcorn let me know, I'll send you a link so you can support a kid you "know", instead of the ones standing in front of Wal-mart!
What I'm Reading:


  1. I'm glad to hear that the Pirate is doing so well in school. We just got the 1st progress report for my oldest and he is doing really well as well. Always a relief to hear :) Have a great weekend!

  2. They sell popcorn? I remember when boy scouts used to sell apples... Maybe that was just around here?

  3. My boys used to be in Boy Scouts and we used to fill half our deep freeze with that popcorn! I think they've changed it a bit - it used to be the best popcorn you could get. Not sure it's as good any more but still such a good cause. I'm waiting for my door bell to ring soon so I can stock up!

  4. Glad Pirate is doing so well.

  5. I'm not sure about the stocking. Is it a christmasy thing or a decorative thing?

    We've had big weather swings here as well--not as cold as 49, but we span from 59-90 throughout the day. Layers.

    Any good songs from the past? just realized you posted this 6 days ago. Geez--I need more free time!

  6. Will check out your Made by Lisah blog shortly. Still so psyched for you about your new venture!

    We love making friendship bracelets here, too!

    I think I have Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake on my TBR! It's a signed copy from RWA where I met Sarah MacLean. She's a doll. I think I might just pick that one up the next time I want to reach for an historical romance. : )
