on pure joy...

Quick update:

We got the place! Ahhh! I did a little jig around the room for a full five minutes, I kid you not! More details to come on the upcoming move...

The etsy shop is finally up and running. I'm slightly giddy about it, and also a bit apprehensive, just because it's my first time selling anything I've made. I'm overflowing with ideas on what to make for it, though, and so far only have a few journals and one felt pocket up there for sale. Go take a look! No pressure to buy anything; right now I'm just trying to get my feet wet with the whole etsy thing.

I've decided that, although my cat gives me an ulcer from irritation, I'm totally going to bawl my eyes out when we have to give him away before we move. (Jay is going to, too, but I'm sure he won't tell anyone. He loves that cat more than me. Seriously, they're homies.) Nuni has been a part of our family, howling and all, for the last year. So, it'll be tough. But okay.

I've made a couple entries in the photo blog. I'll be posting five photos every five days. For the rest of the year. (Gasp!) Hopefully I'll make it to 365, but I suppose we shall see. I enjoy making it a part of my day, though, to take at least one photo. I encourage anyone else who's ever considered going it, to go for it! It makes you look closer at everything, see things differently.

(Oh, and on a sidenote, I totally would have voted Colbert for president. Why can't he still be in the running? Why?)

I'm completely happy. We get to move! Hurrah!
