indness Matters....

a couple days ago I decided to decorate our front porch for fall.  I did this knowing full well that I was taking a big risk and whatever I put out there was pretty much at the mercy of a certain big white beast who likes to chew on things.  He is outside most of the day when we're not home and the front porch is his hang out spot. Sometimes he gets bored.  Call me stupid because he has already chewed on the corners of our front porch swing, so I'm not sure what I was thinking except that I was determined to not let the dog stop me from having a cute porch! haha.  The photo above is proof that what I knew would happen did happen.  :)  I found him chewing on this wooden block that said "Kindness Matters".   Sigh.  Why are we smiling in that picture?!?  We obviously still have some training to do.

I had a few days off this week and was able to spend some much needed time in the craft room making hair clips.  I sell them at an adorable local shop called The Soap Box and the shop owner re-ordered for a third time! Haven't sold any on Etsy yet but that is probably due to my lack of advertising/marketing.  I need to work on that!  I'm really happy with how they turned out.  My parents sell vintage jewelry on ebay and when they buy lots of jewelry and sort through it they'll pass things along to me that don't have a match, are missing pieces, etc.  Basically whatever they can't sell.  A few of my hair accessories in this order are embellished with vintage clip on earrings.  : ) 

My craft room is still a mess.  That's a project for another day.

That's all for tonight! I'm half watching a movie with my husband and he just informed me that this is an important part, so I need to make sure I pay attention! :)
