If you've stopped by my Etsy shop recently, then you've likely noticed it's nearing 1,000 sales. I'm elated! As a gesture of thanks, I'm gifting the buyer of my 1,000th sale with a piece of jewelry of my choosing.
P.S. I just did the math - and can't believe I've had my Etsy shop for almost a decade come this fall!
I have to admit that it's all about baby A. lately. Jewelry has not been made, shop orders have shipped a few days later than usual, and product inquiries have been answered at all hours of the day. And I believe this is how it should be. At least for now. Babies don't have on-the-dot wake and sleep times. Mine doesn't nap much (or at all) during the day, and sleeps at strange God-forsaken hours. But oh, her Cheshire Cat grin. Her silly, quiet laugh; the sweet sparkle in her old-soul eyes. For now, it's all how it should be. When I'm ready to start making jewelry again, I will. Until then, I'll be knee-deep in the crazy love that is motherhood, knowing full well that the long days, weeks, and years of childhood will, in truth, be short-lived.
