Just a quick post

Ahem. We've all heard it before but, "Oh my gosh how time sho' do fly!"

My sister is going to be a Freshman next school year.


She's old!! And that means I'M old!!!! What am I going to do?!

In other news:

I survived my first day of finals. Three tests down, five to go. Uggg, will this year just get OVER already?? I'm just dying to crochet. Honestly. My fingers are literally twitching like mad. I think I have withdrawls and crocheter's block all at once. I was going to throw some yarn in my purse so that I'd have something to work on after I finished my tests today, and I couldn't think of anything to make. Not. One. Thing. I just stood and gaped at my stash of yarn this morning going: "Uhhhhhhh......" like some sort of loser. What's my DEAL???

Anybody else get like this? Anybody? I know I've gotten writer's block...but crocheter's block?? What's with that??

Okay, Tara is begging me to get off the computer, so I must surrender. Silly girl. She's all done for the year. No finals for the Junior High. Psht.



I'm done.

Yes, Crazy

I believe I have mentioned in the past that my life is crazy.

Yes, crazy.

I'm down to two weeks of school for this school year and let me tell you, the teachers are piling on the work like there's no tomorrow. Now, it's not difficult work, it's just tedious work. Final exams are May 29th, June 1st, and June 2nd. My last day is the 3rd. Can you say: PARTY?!! So many of my friends are graduating this year! Including my boyfriend. Did I mention him before? Heh. Like I said, crazy life lately.

So, as you can see from the hat picture above, I am.......behind on posting stuff to the shop. So, my loving Grandmother took my hats to the infamous "Pec Thing" and tried to sell them for me. I actually don't know how well it went, considering I hadn't even priced the darn things. Oh dear.
In other news:
The article in Rockford Woman's Magazine about my mother, sister, and I was a HUGE success. Sales have not been skyrocketing exactly, but tons of people have been coming up to me and asking me about my shop. The article is here if you are interested in reading it. I am still majorly excited about the nice little slice of publicity the shop is getting from the article. Very very exciting. Who'da thunk?
In other other schedule for Summer 2009:
June 3rd: last day of school
June 14th-23rd: In Spain and France with the Durand Art Boosters
July 12th-26th: In Chicago at School of the Art Institute studying fashion construction
Other than that, I'm taking lots of naps outside, crocheting up a storm, hopefully reserving a booth for the Fall 2009 Pec Thing, playing hillarious pranks on my friends, breathing in and know, the normal stuff we all do in the summer time.
Hope you all are enjoying this FANTASTIC weather today. 85 degrees and sunny, now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout. No more of the snow-cold-winter routine. I'm DONE!
Lots of love,
Carolyn Michelle
