Is it April already?!!!

....that can't be right?! I really don't know where the time goes anymore. It's so easy to get caught up in creating and family and life in general that before you know it half a month has flown by!

I've been busy, so I haven't updated as recently as I would have liked to. I always have "a lot of irons in the fire." Maybe that's a Gemini thing or insanity or just me, I don't know! Since I wear almost all the hats at Favourite Things Gift Studio as well as looking after my family (including homeschooling my teenage daughter), I often don't get to everything on my TO DO list as quickly as I'd like. At least I don't have to do the bookkeeping anymore. No offense to anyone who enjoys playing with numbers but bookkeeping is so boring to me. I can do it, but there's nothing creative about it so it's just another chore for me - one I gladly passed on to my husband Adam, who's also my business partner. He has to have something else to do besides schlepp my stock to shows! Poor man.


I'm working on a few new things for this year. Finding suppliers for what I need is a big hassle though. I'm sure most crafters can relate to finding something you want to create but you can't find the supplies you need. Or worse, you can only find some things. It's so annoying - and I have access to wholesale! UGH! I finally got an Import number, so I may try to solve this problem myself and not rely on wholesale distributers anymore. I'll keep you posted.

Back to the studio!
