Sleepy Morning

Trying to wake up in the morning is one of the hardest tasks. Most days I just feel like laying in bed all day and not getting out for anything. Today was one of those days. Do you ever feel like you want to be a cat and just lay around all day? That is me today, but I managed to get out of bed and start the day. Granted I am still in my pj’s drinking my coffee and waiting for my sons ride to pick him up for school.

I wanted to get a jump on this morning writing to try to wake my brain up a little. As I sit here typing and yawning I feel like it is going to take a while to actually have my brain awake. What do you do to get your brain awake in the mornings when it just woke wake up?

I want to learn to crochet!

The other day I was working on some of my baby bracelets for my shop and my 7 year old son comes up to me and says “mom I want to learn how to crochet like you!” I said you have to have patience and not get frustrated with it. Let me tell you about him so this will make more sense.
My son is a very gifted child. He goes to a charter school for gifted and talented kids. He comes home and works on his spelling (which is the only thing he struggles with) and when he gets a word spelled wrong he starts to break down and cry and get upset. Being a perfectionist like that is hard so if its not right or he doesn’t get it then he has a melt down.

Well here we are talking about learning a new skill that takes practice and patience and I wanted to make sure that he didn’t get frustrated and upset. I sat down with him and taught him how to use the crochet hook, and how to “wrap” the yarn around his fingers like I do. We started with a chain and just doing that over and over again.

I was so incredibly proud of him that he didn’t get upset or frustrated at it once! He kept trying and practicing. He wanted to make a tail band for his Eevee stuffed animal. So here is that creation that he made for his stuffed animal!

My life My Shop

I started a job a year and a half ago. I loved it and it took up a lot of my time. It was working with special needs children in a school. While it was a great job and I loved working there my back didn’t agree with me. Just within the last week though I took a look at my job and life and had to think about what I wanted to do with my life. What can I do that I love but won’t physically be demanding on my body. Then I thought “Hey lets re open my Everything Precious shop and try to make that more of what I want”.
So here I am with my grand re opening last week and I already made a sale! It was a great motivator to know that I can do this if I put my heart and time into it! So here I am back at work on my shop! Come back to my blog and stay with me on my journey!

I have come back from the dead!!! Haha just kidding. I know I have been absentee for a while. I have been super busy.  My son just started coach pitch baseball, and my shop has been super busy with baby braacelets and such. I also added a new line of kids yoga socks to my shop and I am going to be making adult yoga socks too!
Here is the child size yoga socks that I have for sale now. These can be made in any colors and also made any size.
