We're Moving...

*Whew*  We're in the process of moving!  You're probably thinking I've disappeared.  Well, I haven't... I'm just in hiding. ;)  The last few months have been an absolute whirlwind for our little family.  My husband graduated from college & had no luck finding a job where we were, so we moved in with my parents temporarily to look for a job back home.  Sucess!  He found a job & loves every second of it, so we've now found our own place.  We're in love.  100% in love.  Okay, maybe 99%, but that's still pretty good.

So I'm here, just not as much as usual... but things will be back to normal--no, better--in about another week!!!  I can't wait!

Make sure to check out my sale in the meantime. ;)

Woohooo!


New photos!! I'm more excited than words can express! Not long ago, it became very apparent that I'm AWFUL at taking photos of greeting cards. I'm not the best photographer to start, but greeting cards are really difficult subjects!! (I kept saying, "Say cheese!" and nothing would happen...)

So I put an Alchemy request on Etsy and was pleasantly surprised when an old Etsy pal of mine placed a bid! Hooray!!

You'll start seeing my new photos shortly. And make sure to check out Brandi's shops on Etsy! *Whew* What talent!

You may have also noticed the bright new colors of my banner! It was time for a change. My sweet ladybug is still present, but is looking a little more girlie and ready for Spring! The next big change will be to my website!

Little Kokeshi Doll Flat Notecards

Sometimes when I'm stressed, I get a little down.  Touchy.  Cranky.

I've found that if I create something happy & upbeat, I usually snap right out of it.

Does this tell you I've been uber-stressed lately?! :)  Ha!!



This sweet set of notecards is available at Bitsy's Greetings on Etsy.  (And will be available shortly on my website.)

A little catching up...

Happy New Year!  I know it's a little late, but you're still getting it! :)
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.  The Bitsy family's was filled with a lot of joy and love... and fabulous food!  I don't know how I came away from it all without gaining 20 pounds!

What do you have to look forward to this new year?  2008 was a crazy, crazy year for me and my family. 

We welcomed our sweet baby boy into the world & he took us all by surprise!  We fully expected a busy little guy to make up for our ridiculously calm daughter (well--she was calm THEN, but not NOW.  She's almost FOUR!!) and boy, did we get it!  We love him to pieces, but he keeps us hopping!

My sweet husband finished school!!!  What an undertaking with a wife and children.  WOW!  I am so proud of him.  He now has TWO degrees: music & biology.  What a smartie to be using BOTH sides of his brain, right?  (He gets that comment constantly!)

We MOVED back home to Maryland & said hubby got a new job after looking for quite some time.  Hooray!!

And we said goodbye to our sweet little Muffin cat.  For those of you who read that post awhile back, we did end up putting her down.  Things got worse VERY, very quickly and we just had no choice.  It was a difficult decision, but we are very much at peace now.  I was actually worried about how our daughter would handle it, but she did very well!  She takes any opportunity to tell people that our Muffin lives with our Heavenly Father now & we'll see her again some day.  What could be more sweet & innocent than that truth coming from an almost 4 year old?

And now on to 2009!!!!!
