Sunday Lately :: Week 70

May 1, 2016

Angelica, Meaghan, Nicole, and myself. We e-hang out every Sunday, sharing a small glimpse into the last week of life in our own worlds. We’d love if you could join us!

This week’s themes: Completing, Visiting, Repeating, Writing, Scheduling.

Completing. April’s hell week.  And coming out mostly alive.  We’ve been working so, so hard to launch the new rebrand and it’s finally here.  I still don’t feel 100% prepared, and there are things that need to go online still…but we are close enough.  I call that a win.  www.ThreadandGrain.com come check us out!  (And if you’re on Instagram, find us @threadandgrain for a Launch Party discount announcement!

Visiting. Centre Market in Wheeling yesterday with my Momma, Bennett, Louis and a bunch of our friends for an “Afternoon in Centre Market“.  May is Preservation Month and the Wheeling Young Preservationists kicked it off (a day early) with a tour of a thriving part of our city, which also resulted in discounts at nearly all of the local businesses down there.  Later Alligator even created a new special drink: The New Old Fashioned.  It was full of yum.

Photo lovingly stolen from Alex P's instagram because Louis was using my phone the entire time we were drinking these and I never got a chance to take a picture.

Repeating. “I think I can, I think I can.” All day.  Because I’ve got a laundry list of things to make happen today.  GAH!  Why do I do this to myself?

Writing. A fun post that goes live on May 3.  Just wait.  I have entered myself into Crafting Con this year, with a Star Wars theme.  And I am so so so so excited to show the look I’ve created for Louis.  

Scheduling. Some time for myself to get some selfish sewing done.  Normally I don’t call it that.  But damnit this time it is selfish.  I  just want to create something without pressure of it needing to be for something particular.  I realized the other day that most of the shirts in my closet are long sleeves and we are coming into the warmer months (kinda…it was hella cold last night!) and I need short sleeves and tanks to get me through.  A date with my sewing machines would be just the thing I need.


Disclosure: As always, you’ll find some affiliate links scattered within my post, which means I receive a small amount of compensation if you end up purchasing something I’ve recommended.  Keep in mind that I link these companies and their products because of their quality and not because of the commission I receive from your purchases. The decision is yours, and whether or not you decide to buy something is completely up to you.  Purchasing from my links does not alter the pricing in any way for you, it simply helps feed my sewing, creating and blogging habits.  Thank you for your support!
