I've been a busy girl.

Which I feel like is a blessing! Kyle and I have been trying to figure out a way to make some extra money and my solution was to open an Etsy shop. Now I know I posted that a couple months ago. Probably back in October, when I opened it. And things have been S.L.O.W. in my shop, until a couple weeks ago. When some photography challeneged me to make something, and I did.
{ see below }

I then thought this would be a great thing to market and make... I'm the only person on etsy making anything like this, so as you can imagine... business picked up!! Which is WONDERFUL!!! I am loving the opportunity to create, and we are all enjoying the lighter pull on our wallets. I've had the oppotunity to work with some really creative people who are just fueling all of my ideas... one of which is some hot-shot (i guess) who is going to feature my item in a MAGAZINE!!!!! Can you believe it??!! I am SO excited I can hardly stand it...

My next pouf is going to have these little roses all over it - darling for spring!!

Apart from working for my shop, I've taken some time to do some home improvement things.... As you can imagine, our apartment is quite small, so having a big over sized coffee table - not practical. So I've been looking for a new ottoman, one with some storage hopefully so I can hide Max's/Rambo's toys in there. And I found this one...

On clearance because it was scuffed and had holes, but no bother... I'm crafty!!

so I recovered it!!

Much more fitting for my home I think!!

I love it!

And as always, I am a mother and wife first.
So while I'm having fun creating, I'm also remembering to spend time
with my family.

I get to enjoy these two cuddling ALL day

{seriously - nap time is adorable}

I am lucky enough to get to love on this little guy all day! He's so beautiful!

Life is Good, people.
Be Happy.

  2. Hailey! You are so talented!
    My mom wants to know a little about the Etsy thing. She's wanting to maybe sell some jewelry on there. Maybe you could call me or something and then I could relay the message on! :)

  3. Hailey! That ottoman looks SO good. Way to go! i want to learn how to recover furniture. And way to go on your business! It's so nice to have that option to create and sell via web :) can't wait to see more.
