Tart N Tiny
Man what a week! Aside from finishing another custom order which was actually supposed to be shipped out last week, I have been getting ready for a big move off Vancouver Island. George and I have been entertaining the idea of moving closer to family and old friends for a while now but never thought it was realistic to pull the plug here in Victoria. I mean, I co-owed a Design firm here, George and I own a house here and, as a couple for the last 10 years we have never lived anywhere else together. Kinda scary. I put our house up on Craigslist to see if we would get any interest for the amount we had listed it for. It never occured to me that it would happen so fast, let alone at all. Both George and I had thought that the rent we needed to cover the mortgage was too rich for a lot of people's blood. well apparently we were wrong! Not only did we get a huge response but we also had a number of people though and ended up renting it all within a few days of listing it. Oh, and FOR APRIL! Never saw that coming. So, needless to say I have been packing, searching for a house in the Okanagan, felting fast and furious to get through my orders and wrangling my little goblin who's favourite word right now is MOMMY! And of course for no rhyme or reason. Literally from the moment she wakes to even this moment when she should be sleeping in her crib. I am thinking I don't like the work Mommy to much this week. How can 1 25 pound curly blonde munch-kin run a women ragged like this?
I feel like the candle burning from both ends this week. It's only Monday too! Although I am not sure what that has to do with anything, everyday these days feels like Monday.
Oh, and to top it off...I crushed my finger tips trying to close the garage door quietly so not to wake George since he needed to sleep in this morning. Not easy to felt today with numb fingertips.
Anyway...aside from showing the home, packing 80% while curly-Q ride on my hip I have managed to finish another custom order from Etsy. It was an order I got before Christmas. A fellow had purchased a custom order for his wife's birthday which also happens to fall on Valentines Day! Awww! So she wanted Two goblins. One big and one little to represent her own little goblin Zara. I hope she likes them. Uhhgg I hate being late though. No time to get them there for Sunday. Happy Be-lated Birthday Dawn.
Tart, Bigger goblin in Peacock colors is jointed at the arms and sits 14" tall and Tiny, the lil pink and white goblin with no neck (heheh) sits at 7" tall.
