Sunday Lately :: Week 134

Jul 23, 2017

 

Sunday Lately is a weekly linkup hosted by the Blogger Tribe, which is fearlessly led by Angelica (Gardening in High Heels) and myself. We e-hangout every Sunday, sharing a small glimpse into the past week of life in our own worlds. We’d love if you could join us!

This week’s themes: Trying, Buying, Capturing, Rejoicing, Clearing

 

Trying. To get everything together before I leave next week.  Because I’m going to Salt Lake City, baby!  Cricut is having a big convention out there and they are sending me, all expenses paid, to attend as one of their “industry leaders”.  SO FREAKING EXCITED.

Buying. A new cute laptop bag for my trip.  I just ordered one this morning and I’m hopeful that it’s going to be what I want.  We apparently are going to be needing to have our laptops closeby so we can be creating with Cricut over the three day period, and I wanted something that would do that but be adorable at the same time.  I think this one fits the bill…if not, I can drag my pretty-but-giant camera bag along with me.

Capturing. Some newborn images for our besties this week!  Heather and Jon-Erik welcomed in their newest family member and I volunteered to take some newborn photos for them.  I haven’t photographed a newbie since Lincoln was born, so I’m feeling a little rusty.  But I started to make some things to bring along with me…like a new crocheted hat and some pants/a wrap, so I’m excited to say the least.

Rejoicing. About the response that I’ve received over a pattern that I released as a freebie!!  You’ll hear more about it on here this Wednesday, but I totally pulled a Katy and released something before I was supposed to, out of pure excitement.  I created an entire pattern all by my lonesome….in sizes XXS – Plus 3X for women.  It’s called the Wanderer Skirt and it’s an adorable high-low knit skirt.  FOR FREE!  Go grab a copy for yourself and then share pictures with me over in my Facebook Group!  DO IT!!!!

Clearing. Out some space in our “laser room” so we can get our machine back up and running this week.  We’ve been unable to create wooden anything for over a month now and it’s been killing me slowly.  The part should be back in our hands tomorrow and I will be ::hopefully:: celebrating a functioning machine with a small sale of our wooden goods.  Cross all fingers and toes that it goes well!
