Frogs and Shop Updates

Monday, June 30th, 2008


Oooooh boy it was hot today! You know when your back gets sweaty from driving in the car for a few minutes? Yuck. And yes, I know I could avoid that with some well-time air conditioning but I just don’t like it. I’m a wind girl. 

Anyhow, beating the heat by making a pasta sauce (so NOT the thing to do if you’re trying to stay cool, but we’ll get a really nice couple of meals out of it) and adding new things to the shop. Woo hoo! It’s been a while, eh? I know. I’ve renewed my commitment to the HappyDashery effective immediately, and no small thanks to a couple of neighborhood girls for committing a few afternoons to Dash. 

So stay tuned. More updates in the days to come. 


What does that photo have to do with anything? Nothing. Just some frogs I thought I’d share with you.

The newest member of the Sattin family. Just a little bitty thing still but I can’t possibly hide it anymore. 

Can’t really hide that basket of dirty laundry in the background either, can I?  

So this is what’s kept me away. This and the morning sickness (which, by the way, sucks if you didn’t know already), and the fact that Dash still wants to be held all day in spite of me having to run to the bathroom every so often.  

We’re really excited to be welcoming a new baby into our family and I’m looking forward to the months leading up to the big day. I love being pregnant (minus the sick) so I plan to make the most of these few months. Not just going through all of Dash’s clothes and other goods that can be reused, but also just enjoying it. Enjoying the belly. Enjoying the way it seems to make everyone smile around me. I love that! 

And also enjoying being a family of three for as long as that lasts. I think Dash will be a splendid big brother, though it does make me a little sad that he won’t remember this time when we were just three. 

And a special note to the Dad before his second Father’s Day… you’re an amazing father with so much love for our little Dash. We are both so lucky to have you. 

Now get ready to do it again! Next year there will be two! 

Happy Father’s Day to all.

That is in answer to a very popular question being asked of me lately. That being, “Where the hell are you?”

I promise I’ll be back soon. I’ve been working on something pretty special for a while now and I’m about ready to share.

(And on the negative side, which many of you know is a big part of my personality, I’m trying not to be seriously annoyed by the new etsy search options that have all but put a stop to my business. You all know you have to actually select “vintage” from a drop-down in order to find vintage items, right? Spread the word.)
