Sun Soaking, Water Splashing Fun

It is time for a vacation!


I haven't even completely finished editing the photographs of our last vacation and here we are going on our next. Yes, I have been just that busy and yes M and I really really need this. We have a toddler so it won't be the relaxing vacation of a time before children but it'll take us away from the routine of everyday life. It'll take us away from the Jersey cold and off to the warm sandy beaches of Aruba!

Getting back to the being oh so busy.. I don't know how all these other talented mommy bloggers, crafters and artisans do it but I find it hard to jump from creative mode to mommy mode at minutes intervals. Plus M has been working late.. and this is not just a phase. It comes with the job. It usually doesn't start as soon as December.. usually it starts with January and goes on till early May.. but those are the months where I find myself becoming a single mother.. eating meals alone and being starved for adult interaction and conversation. And to think this only the beginning.. five more months to go.

In the meantime I am trying to stay on top of things with my work. The website is fully loaded with all my photographs. And as some of you may already know I just had my first gallery opening yesterday! I will post more of the details when I get back from my trip. But for now a few photographs. My work will be available at the Art House Gallery till the 28th of January 2012 just in case you are in the area. I want to thank you all for your words of appreciation and encouragement. Your words make my day and lift me up when I am feeling down. Thank you.




And once I come back from my vacation I am doing a Holiday Gift Fair at the PaperMill Playhouse in Millburn, NJ on the 19th of December. Now technically I have done an Open House before but that was four Etsian's in a house. This obviously is going to be much larger than that. And requires much more work to get organized. Printing inventory, signing and packaging. Making a banner, sign up sheets just an endless list of things to do. Which I would like to say I am more than halfway done and I would like to be 100% done before I leave so I don't have to be worrying about getting things done once we get back home. I will tell you more about how that turns out.. and if you are fellow Garden Staters please stop by. I'd love to meet you.. you don't have to buy anything I promise. : )


Now getting to the toddler.. we have been taking swim classes which he loves, one of the reason we decided to take a beach/pool vacation. M never gets to see him in action, that is if you don't count his splashing around in the bath tub. So this way I can lounge in the warm sun (yeah right!) and M and D can catch up on their water bonding. He has also started to walk.. a bit of a late bloomer walking at 16 months but the amount of trouble he can get himself into has now tripled. So adorable..devil! He is like a tiny penguin plodding around climbing on and off things all day. Hopefully he too will enjoy the vacation immensely and crossing my fingers will be so tuckered out at the end of the day that he will sleep till the sun comes up.. ah the dream!

Okay so that is it for me.. see you back here next Monday..
