Not Nothing {Monday is Mom-day}

Sunday, April 15, 2012
What have I been up to lately?  Well, at first brush my answer would be "nothing much".  Mostly trying to keep up as a pregnant mother of 4 children.  Preparing for Gwen's visit and the adventure of SNAP- the creative blogging conference coming up this week! (I am dying I'm so excited!!)  Trying to build up inventory for Oh Sweet Sadie the first week of May.
Feeling like I'm not really doing what I want or should be doing most of the time.  Wishing I had much more energy and time for pretty much everything, and really trying to keep my priorities straight.
The kids had spring break last week.  It was nice to have no schedule and no homework.  We didn't do much, but I tried to make it a little interesting. ;)  A trip to my mom's and the park near her house, lunch out, treats from the gas station and renting a movie, playing with cousins and a sleepover (which I'm really regretting, my kids don't do no sleep well ;) ).  No big vacation, no great adventures, but we did what we could with the time and means that we had.

 It doesn't sound like much, but it's my life right now.  Not a lot that I think might be interesting to put on the blog.  No amazing projects, or tutorials.  Just everyday normal, raising kids life.
But now that I think about it a bit more, perhaps there is something to this life that I'm living.   I'm grateful for small everyday things that make life full and wonderful, and perhaps, by glossing over them, or failing to record them, I'm missing the whole point of this life. 

So, I've not be doing Nothing.  I've been doing a million little somethings all day every day.  Enjoying them, struggling with them. Living them.  And I couldn't be happier.

I will be back this week with an update on progress for the boutique, a tutorial for a Gorgeous new pillow (yes another one), and the final version of this new purse that I'm making for my little vacation to SNAP (even though it's in my neck of the woods, I'll be staying at the hotel and away from my family, so it's a vacation for sure.)
I hope you're having a wonderful life full of great little somethings that make your life amazing!  We'll see you soon!

xoxo,
Amy

Love doing nothing sometimes. Wish I was going to snap with ya, (too expensive for me) But I hope you have a great time. Enjoy!

I'm trying to enjoy the "nothing" these days, too. It really is something, isn't it?

Two more days!!!

You know, I've been struggling to keep this very idea at the forefront of my brain lately. I mean, that's what life is really. A bunch of little somethings that make a whole. Sometimes I think I could use a large neon sign in my living room that says: "It's The Little Things". Don't think my husband would go for it but man, it would be most useful.

I find that days full of the nothings are definitely the most tiring! I'm excited to see your new pillow design, and I adore that picture of you with your girls. You all look fantastic in pink!
