I try to stay off my computer until Sunday nights when I usually pack up weekend orders and stuff, so breaking my routine of heading for my office chair in the morning is strange sometimes. I'm pretty sure I almost always break my own rule though when I grab my iPad... yet somehow sitting in a different room with access to the internet seems less like I'm not working at all.
I've been working on a list full of blog designs... which has pretty much become my full time job and taken over my other design company projects, but I am happy about that because I love doing them.
Fawn & Flora just hit 100 individual orders since we launched on valentine's day, so I'm pretty stoked about that. I've been ordering stock, fulfilling orders, and getting out whenever I can to hunt for unique treasures. Oh and making some cute printables like these cupcake wrappers:
My eBook has been moving along nicely and I am excited to release it at the end of the month! The pre-orders have been better than expected so thank you so much to everyone who purchased one and cares what I have to say!!
Our backyard is undergoing some plans at the moment, which I guess is kind of adding to the bit of stress that's starting to happen. We're trying to get our deck extended, and have plans for a cute patio.
Don't you love my mockup? haha.
All of this being completed of course will be the deciding factor of having our wedding in the backyard or not. Which, by the way, is already starting to stress me out and we haven't even made any definite plans.
That's probably the problem... the date we wanted is only 3 months away and we need to let people know. However, we can't let them know for sure until this backyard stuff is taken care of, and the home builders decide to come back and redo our lawn. Oh yes, that is another thing. They graded and seeded our lawn improperly 2 years ago and it needs to be redone. My backyard is pretty much nothing but dirt and weeds. The side of our house still isn't graded/seeded either and there has been a big pile of topsoil sitting there for ohhhh... a year? Don't let me get into it because it is the #1 thing that makes me angry to think about. If anybody has any advice on getting these stupid builders to get their butts in gear I'm all ears.
So the wedding? Not even sure if it will happen this year which makes me sad. Is it possible to plan something in 3 months? I think it can be done... as I said it would be nothing traditional or elaborate. I just wish I could fast forward and have everything prepared and ready for me to just walk out, kiss my new hubby, and be married. Wouldn't that be nice.
Can time just slow down a little bit?
