And I've been slammed with orders lately. That's normally a good thing, but lately I've been working with some really intense people who have a hard time understanding that making paper goods isn't my full-time job. I've considered closing up my shop for a little while, just to take a breather. I think I've decided against that for now.
Ready for me to stop complaining? I recently got into canning, and I've been busy with 25 pints of jam and some dilly beans. What? Never had a dilly bean before? You're really missing out. I'd offer to share, but you'll have to go through Bryce to get to them, and I doubt he's really willing to part with a single bean. Also on the bright side, I finally reclaimed my kitchen after a week or two of heavy-duty cooking.
I took the picture above on a rare family outing a few weeks back. It's the first time all four of us went out of town in over a year. So despite a few mishaps and a bee sting (that really didn't help Hudson's phobia of bees), we had a great time.
I've got some really fun Halloween activities planned and nearly ready to share with you. So hold tight and I'll be back when I'm in a presentable mood with something fun to share. :)
