(Bitsy #1 and me... about 5 years ago--long before I ever thought of sending her off to Kindergarten.)

Bitsy #1 started Kindgergarten this week! Wowee! It is absolutely the strangest feeling to spend 5+ years with a little person--practically 24 hours a day--and then send her off to school for a full day. She has such wonderful teachers, though, I really can't think for a moment she's not in excellent hands.

But we've almost survived the first week with not too many surprises! Just one very loose tooth that came out and only one meltdown. I'd say it's been a success! We've had a very, very sad little brother at home, but we'll get used to things. Going to the grocery store with just Bitsy #2 was like going on vacation!!

So as we get used to changes around our home and in our family, I thought I'd do a little 'house-cleaning' of my business. I'll be going back to just one Etsy shop. It's a bit too much for me to handle two & it's so sad when someone who is a regular customer of my graphic design or my fabric labels will see my greetings and say "Wow! I never knew you did this..."

Back to only will be open a bit longer as I let those listings expire and move them back over to bitsycreations.

As always, thank you for your support! I'm sure now that school has started, I can free up some time to blog more.

A Full Summer

We have had such a full summer. I've thoroughly enjoyed visits with family these past few months. We've been spoiled because they've mostly come to us!!

Yesterday was such a fun time. We celebrated two of my brothers' birthdays and had a very full house at Grandma & Grandpa's! One of my brothers lives in Korea, so whenever he's home (usually once a year) we try to all get together. So another brother was in town for just the day & snapped this adorable photo of Bitsy #2 at church:

What cheeks!! My parents & two of my brothers sat behind us yesterday at church--I got to watch as my little two year old slipped under the pew & squeezed himself between my brothers. My heart was so full! So wonderful to see everyone yesterday and so sad to see those who live far away go back. Family, though we are not perfect, is such a wonderful blessing.

The End is Near....

Has this summer just been eating your time up, too? Between the heat, the visitors we've had, and school coming, I've been away from blogging too long!

So here we are... two weeks away from school. Have I mentioned my "baby" is going off to Kindergarten? I just don't know what I'll do. I'm so used to having my dear around, but she is so completely ready to go. It will be wonderful for her to make some new friends and have time away from her little brother who adores her, of course, but also smothers her just a tad.

We're getting ready buying our supplies and labeling it. Yes, for one of the very first times, I am using my own fabric labels! It was a little difficult for me to print out sweet little fabric labels with a hippo (her favorite) and my daughter's name...

I've been getting a bunch of orders from other moms doing the same thing: getting the kids ready to send to school. So please remember that I'm thinking of all the first-time-school-moms! And remember that my labels are perfect for ironing onto school items, not just your businesses.
