Oh Etsy!

Hey all you Etsy lovers! My friend Mindy has opened an Etsy shop called Velours Rouge. It’s awesome. She makes jewelry. She uses a lot of cool stones and other interesting elements. My favorite piece is this one.


And I love Mindy’s descriptions. Like the one for this piece says “This necklace is fun to wear. It is casual and cool. The pendant is carved wood with a flower motif. The turquoise is delicate and light weight. Looks great with a shirt and jeans.

This morning the boys and I have been busy. We’ve been making a checklist for getting ready in the morning. I asked Sai what things we should do in the morning to get ready for school. We wrote them down, with lots of suggestions from me like brushing teeth, and we took pictures of him doing it. I had to take pictures of Jay, too, because he’ll want one too. Then I made a check list in Word and inserted the pictures. I printed it out and put it in a page protector so he can use a dry erase marker to make checks when he is done with each task in the morning. We are going to practice the checklist next week. I can’t believe school is going to start so soon!

    That is a cute necklace.
    Isn’t it just cute? I think my friend Mindy is pretty talented. I wish she were doing this when I still lived close to her so then I could bug her to make me custom stuff!! Maybe I still will bug her. 🙂
