Monday, October 25, 2010's been a while...I've been busy:)'s been a while since I posted, BUT I was busy! On August 17th, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Delaney. I was fully expecting to jump right back into the jewelry making without skipping a beat. I even scheduled a craft show 2 1/2 weeks after she was born. Before I met her, I didn't think that would be a problem. However, the morning of, I was bawling my eyes out at the thought of leaving her for 8 hours. I fully did not expect her to survive the day without me and I didn't think I would survive without her (Luckily, my husband brought her to visit me because he knew I was struggling:) Anyway, to make a long story short, she changed my schedule for making jewelry. Now, instead of working at 2 pm, I am often working at 9 pm, while holding a bottle with my chin and trying to print out Paypal labels with my left hand pecking at the keyboard. I honestly can't believe how such a little person can control my entire day. Not to mention that fact that hammering metal is not exactly the best way to keep a napping baby asleep. Although the naps are few and far between because she doesn't want to miss a beat. Combine that with my sister's five-year-old boy and 10-month-old daughter and you can imagine that a work day at Tag...You're It is not what you would call typical. However, we make it work:) We've been busy preparing for the holiday season. (Hint, Hint: ORDER NOW TO AVOID THE HOLIDAY RUSH AND TO ENSURE YOUR DELIVERY FOR CHRISTMAS:) ...Although, I guess since you are reading our blog, I should tell you to wait for our Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale:) Yes, we have been busy preparing for Christmas.
