Drowning....

...in a sea of orders--in case you've wondered where I've been.

In addition to spending time with the family over the holiday weekend, I have been working like crazy to get orders finished and out the door. It's truly a blessing to have these orders coming in, but I am finding it a bit challenging to find solid sewing time before 10:00 p.m. with 2 kids home for the summer. However, in August, for the first time since February of 2003, I will have both kids at school. I will have about 3 1/2 hours alone every...single...day. While I know I will miss them, I will admit that I am looking forward to that quiet time.

In the meantime, I am trying to enjoy my time with them while still honoring my commitments. (Isn't that what every mom tries to do?)

We did go see WALL*E. While it's not our favorite Pixar film, the kids still enjoyed it. They requested Wall*e clothes when they spotted this fabric on one of our trips to the fabric store and I complied:

Oh Jen I am right there with ya! Luke will be in 1st grade and London will be in preK 5 days for the first time. Three hours with just myself 5 days a week, oh what will I do??? Sew of course! It is a bittersweet feeling though!

Hi Jen! I've just recently found the bloging world and started my own this week!
I know how you feel with kids home for the summer! I usually can't get Nathaniel asleep untill 10:30.
Love the Wall e sets!
