So…..how was everyone’s Christmas?
I have a had a great time enjoying the holidays with family and friends.
It was nice to step away from the blogs and focus on home for awhile.
I have missed you all though. I have some major catching up to do.
Which is sort of ridiculous because I never will be able to do that.
I got an iPad for Christmas and it has been a lot of fun learning all that I can do on it.
Things other then Angry Birds and Stupid Zombies that is. Instagram is a lot of fun. I’ll be taking everyday shots with that and then sharing them on facebook. I also got to do facetime with my son in Atlanta.
I have to figure out how to blog on it. Not sure if I can use Livewriter on it. Anyone know?
Maybe there is another writing program I can find.
Let me show you what I ordered from Wuslu. I got these two old file drawers and I really love them.
Wuslu will email you their daily deal and there is a limited amount of them so you have to grab it if you love it. But sometimes they get them in stock again. These were less then 20 for both.
I stuck them end to end and filled them with some wintery trees, candles and greens.
It makes a great centerpiece and I think I can keep it up for awhile.
It’s more wintery then Christmasy to me.
They have metal sides and wooden ends.
Now for the news I have been wanting to share.
I have almost finished up with my Etsy shop and I will be opening that really soon. I know I have mentioned it before but I am going to get this going for real! My goal to open before the holidays is blown but I will go forward anyway. I just have to jump in no matter what time of year it is. Sort of like starting a diet. Hmmm. I'll work on that one too.
I had a hard time deciding on a name. I didn’t feel like my blog name would be appropriate. I wanted something more general so it would cover both the vintage and the handmade items that will be offered.
Skyland Drive is the street I grew up on.
Where I would ride my bike until it was dark.
Where I would play in the creek and catch tadpoles and minnows.
Where I’d fight with my sister over who was using who’s shampoo.
Where my mom was always making something in the kitchen while my father was working in his garden.
It’s the beginning of who I am today.
I hope the different name won’t be too confusing.
I’ll let you know when the doors are open!
Oh and one more thing….
It’s my BIRTHDAY!
We are heading out to dinner with family and friends to celebrate at the Ale House and try out a few beers.
I’ll come back with a report :)
Happy New Year to you all!
