Yesterday was so busy I totally forgot to post. Sorry. Just slipped my mind. Tuesdays and Thursdays are quickly becoming 2 of my most favorite days of the week. With each kiddo who joins the Kelley family we’ve been able to work it out where on MDO days (Tuesdays & Thursdays) the youngest Kelley gets one-on-one Mom time. Last year was Sol’s year and Huddy and Harper had their year previously and this year belongs to Amon. I love the time and attention I can pour into him. And sometimes we do crazy things like go to tattoo parlors and run in 20 degree weather. He was so hardcore. He was like, “Yo, Mom, it’s cool that it’s so freakin’ cold out here. You keep on running your way to 55 miles. I’m good.” So maybe he didn’t say all of that, but he was stellar and bundled up tight. Ignore my terrible gross hair
I sooooooo wish I had noticed how blurry this picture was when I took it. He’s going for a new after bath look that is pretty dang cute. Golly.
Okay so onto the real meat of the post. I have really been struggling with how to do the “business” side of creating. I love doing orders, but honestly I get really overwhelmed and am really, really loving hanging with my little family and all these crazy wee Kelleys more. Creating is totally in my DNA, so I still do it often and am really trying to see the ways I can bless others around me with the talents God has blessed me with. They are clearly His.

So here is what I’m thinking. I love to create the ideas that often float through my mind and I’m contemplating making Saturdays sale days. Essentially, I would create during the week and then post all the creations up for sale on Saturdays. This Saturday we’re going to give it a try and see what happens. Right now I have quite a list of things I would like to complete for the first sale, including (10) 4×12 “Where you invest your love, you invest your life” canvases, plus an additional 12 varied canvases. So if all goes according to plan I will have 22 canvases up for sale this Saturday. That’s a lot of work, but I have been busting it since last week.
This 9×12 “Now the sky’s our point of view” canvas will be in the mix too.
There you have it. We’ll give it a go and see what happens. If all the canvases pan out and time permits, I might have some sets of key fobs and a few camera straps up for grabs as well, but don’t hold me to it…I tend to aim super high and miss sometimes. I think that’s about it. Oh and I will post more details on Friday like time, total of canvases for sale, etc. I’m excited to see what happens.
Hope you’re having an awesome day and thank you from the bottom of my crafty heart for even reading my tiny bit of the internet. You’re amazing. See you tomorrow.
