The Clip Fairy is BACK!!!!

I took my etsy site down for about 6 weeks because we were gone for a few weeks and I just needed to gather my thoughts and order lots of great appliques. Most of the appliques are now here and I am ready to get back to business. I am also going to be putting my Fairy Bags up on my site very soon! I am so excited to be back in the Clip (and now wristlet world). It is such a great outlet for me! I will be going a give-away VERY SOON!!! If you are reading this and have a blog let me know - I am going to pick a few blogs to do reviews and give-aways!!!

Back in the Blogging World

I'm back and ready to go!!! I have taken a break from blogging because life has just been overwhelming. Pre-school is out for the summer, we are moving, and I am trying to get my business up and running! I have to say that I am VERY excited about our move -we have been wanting to get back to Point Loma for 3 years and it is finally happening! We signed the lease on our town-home last week and we are moving boxes every few days. We have a month to get moved in so I am not sure when we will sleep there for the first time, but we are already taking advantage of the pools! I will say moving is overwhelming. Having time has been great, but still. We had a garage sale a few weeks ago and got rid of a lot, but being in a house for 6 1/2 years with 2 kids means lots of stuff. We are purging in a MAJOR way. It has been such a good feeling to get rid of stuff we just don't need. I am determined to not bring anything into our new place that I do not feel strongly about. I did put a bunch of memento's and family heirlooms into storage, because our new place is small and we will only be there for a year (more on that later). One of my favorite things about our new place is that I get my own office!!! The girls are going to continue to share a room - something that I think is very positive. I will be able to really run my business which is expanding to include wristlets and other items that I will share later. I can't say enough how excited I am to have a place to work that is mine. I am also setting up a sewing table. I am determined to grow The Clip Fairy and Fairy Bags. I am also motivated by my commitment to pay for pre-school and my new passion Pilate's out of the money I make. More very soon!
