All over the place is how my thoughts are today (and pretty much every night when I'm trying to fall asleep). So when that happens I figure it's usually time for a post about a bunch of random things!
First I wanted to say Thank You to anyone who has bought anything from my Chloe + Isabel store. I've been having fun creating my website and showing off the great jewelry they have. I decided to sell Chloe + Isabel jewelry because I really liked their pieces and I wanted to find something to do for myself to earn a little extra cash. It's definitely been fun and I hope anyone who has purchased anything has really liked what they bought! If you haven't gone to look at their jewelry yet you can go to: https://www.chloeandisabel.com/boutique/kristyw
Remember Valentine's Day is coming soon ;)
Konnor and I have been busy working together to make some cards. We have a lot of Thank You cards to send out, and I also want to try and be better at sending Birthday cards this year. Since it has been so cold out, it isn't always easy finding things to do with Konnor to keep him entertained. He likes to finger paint though so we have been doing a lot of that, and making cards out of his hand prints! He's gotten a little better about not always trying to eat the paint too! :)
I've also been trying to work on Konnor's first year scrapbook. It's coming along, but some days I feel like he will be 3 before I even get the first year book done. He's been awake so much at night the past several months while he's been getting his molars, and so most days I feel like a zombie and I don't get as much done around the house as I would like to. I definitely want to have his book done by the end of February though so that I can get started on his book for his second year and not get too far behind on it! Hopefully I can stick with this goal or even get it done a little sooner!
#100happydays Someone posted a link on Facebook about this project and it caught my eye. I went to their website: http://100happydays.com/ and read what it was about. I love the idea and decided to give it a try. The plan is to post one picture each day for 100 days showing something that made you happy that day. The goal is to take the time to appreciate your life and all the things that make you happy! This came at a good time for me. I'm not necessarily unhappy right now, but with being stuck inside with Konnor most days due to the freezing weather, the fact that I don't really like snow and cold weather, and that I don't really love where we are living right now, I'd say it's definitely a good time to start looking at the things I am happy about! There is no deadline of when you have to start this project so if you think it's something you might like to try then go on over to the website and sign up! You can choose how you want to post your pictures. I will be posting mine on instagram so if you want to follow my 100 days then you can search for me on instagram! (My username is K474)
Talking about Instagram brings me to my next random thought: Prinstagram. I had been searching for a place that will print my Instagram pictures and then one day a relative of mine posted a picture of her purchases from Prinstagram and I loved them! I went to their website and I recently ordered some pictures and they turned out wonderful! It's not always easy to print your Instagram pictures since they aren't the normal 4x6 size, so I love that you can just go to Prinstagram and order your pictures. The photos were all good quality and we even bought some to use as our Christmas "cards" this year. They also have great customer service. I sent an email to the company letting them know how much we loved the pictures, and I got a nice thank you reply back and a coupon code for $10 off my next order. I will definitely be ordering more products from them in the future! The company is social print studio and they also will print any picture you have on your computer or from your Facebook. So if you have any Instagram or any other pictures you want printed out, then you should definitely check them out. The Prinstagram website is: http://printstagr.am/ or you can go to http://socialprintstudio.com/ and find any of their printing websites from there.
Good Night Our World Books. I am in love with these books. We received Good Night Maine from one of our good friends as a gift for Konnor at one of our baby showers. We also got Good Night Charleston from another good friend of ours. Since then we have gotten a bunch of the Good Night Our World books and they are all great. We have Good Night Maine, Charleston, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Ocean, Farm, Baby Jesus, and North Pole. I'm hoping that we can get the books for all the places we live, and for anywhere we go to visit with Konnor.
This is probably enough Random stuff for now! I hope everyone is staying warm! Soon I will have update everyone on how my resolutions are going so far!
