Enter this FREE giveaway from a local

Ok so I am blogging to enter a FREE local giveaway, and let all of you know about this wonderful creative artist!

She does all her own carving of stamps and sells them on her etsy shop, The Mayberry Sparrow.  She all her stamps handmade and she thinks buying handmade is important because it is the purpose of buynig an item that someone else doesn't have.  She also believes in handmade items for the same reason we all make hand made items;  someone has put all their time of hard work into every item.  She doesn't believe in buying items that were possibly made in sweat shops.  Which is great because too!

   I say she is a local because she pretty much is a local to me, I only live an hour away from her Hamilton home, here in Ontario.  She gets lots of her business from word of mouth from the locals.  And relisting items as soon as the sell on her etsy shop, The Mayberry Sparrow.

If would like to know more about this FREE giveaway, feel free to look into it more by visiting: Akane Designs.

Sitting here thinking

Ok so I am sitting here thinking with my littlest one blabbing away and wondering what I should do next.  I think I have come into my point in life where I need to change.  I want still create many beautiful projects for others to enjoy, but I would love to do something a little different with they way I am doing it.

  My dad was talking with his g/f FRIEND the other day and she had come up with the idea that I should make my diapers but also have a diaper cleaning servious.  I was thinking that that was more then just a little change but also an idea to add on to later on in a few  . . .  But sticking with the idea of change I was thinking more of the lines of adding in 'themes' to my items.  So there will still be my diapers, mama products and a little bit of everything else, but have a theme to each item.  Rocker, MOD, punk, skulls, girly, boyish, sports, kinda idea? 

Think this is good?  Well maybe this will be my new change for the New Year.  I will stumble an idea around with my fam. and see what else everyone is seeing.  Maybe I will even get something to progress my career in the form of a Christmas gift?  Who knows, we will see.  Talk to you all soon.
