Normal Moments.

A few things from my week:

>I have had orders, orders and more orders to fill from my Etsy shop. YAY!
>Made four trips to the post office so far.
>I have been searching high and low for a mustard yellow jacket that will keep me warm and a friend finally found this one for me.
>I watched the snow fall and blanket the homes on our street. It is beautiful.
>Finally ordered gifts that I have been procrastinating on.
>Fallen more in love with the colors olive green and mustard yellow.
>I dropped my tooth brush down the drain. It was a light saber toothbrush...bummer.
>Thought of many projects I want to get to...but sadly have had to put them off for a bit.
>Drank many cups of hot tea.
>I haven't had the chance to catch up on my favorite blogs. bummer.
>Gotten more excited for my new years trip with my best friends
>I've probably gotten dressed at 1 p.m. about 3 days this week. Oops.
>I'm still searching for a tortoise shell digital watch. I've even taken great lengths of emailing different watch companies.
>Successfully made two different soups. I feel like I conquered the kitchen this week except for when I burnt the cookies.
>I ran into some very angry Christmas shoppers and drivers.
>Received letters and postcards that made me feel loved and warmed my heart.
>Made some "goals" for the new year.

This week has been really busy and I haven't really gotten to do the things I usually like to do like blogging and sitting down to crochet at night, but I have just been reminded how blessed I am and how thankful I am to do what I do. My days can be so normal, but in those "normal" moments I find myself incredibly happy. I love my kind of normal.

P.S. You can find my passport covers featured in Sister Mag this month alongside 49 other projects for the holidays! Click here to check it out.


  1. I feel you on getting dressed at 1... I'll get to working on something in my PJs, and before I know it it's late afternoon... and I'm still in my PJs.

  2. I'm anxiously waiting the snow here in the Pacific Northwest. It's funny how seasons bring new favorite colors, mine being a forest green. As well, those seemingly normal routines can be treated as the mundane or appreciated as they are in their comfort, even if they are spent in pajamas until the afternoon hours.

  3. Your list sounds lovely (well, minus the crazy Christmas shoppers). Hot tea, homemade soup and letters is a recipe for a good week!


  4. I actually stayed in my pjs all day yesterday. Lol. But it was a nice slow paced day compared to others, so I enjoyed it! I would love to know what your favorite blogs are. When my creative juices aren't willing to flow, I enjoy reading blogs to help with inspiration! :) hope you have a great weekend!!

  5. Pretty photo. I like it! :)
