It’s that time, Ladies & Gentlemen! Time to give Hangover Owl over to his new home. YAY!
First, a recap: I found Hangover Owl while thrifting. After the seventeenth time I decided I could no longer pass him up. So I had my first ever give away! My Bestie’s husband Justin won fair and square via random.org. There will be more giveaways in the future, lots more, so don’t be disappointed if you didn’t win this time. I can practically guarantee that if you keep playing you will eventually win.
I met up with Justin at a going away party for two of our closest friends. (Still working on those pictures, Stef! It’ll take me awhile but I’ll post them, I swear.)
I could tell Justin loved Hangover Owl already.
You can love Hangover Owl, Justin. Just don’t love Hangover Owl.
My first giveaway was a success! I can’t wait to see H.O. proudly displayed on Justin’s work desk in his 1980s-era vintage office. It will fit right in.
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about the Etsy shop. When are you going to start listing? What is taking so long? First, let me assure you it’s a priority. It’s quite a challenge to be at home with Isobel 24-7 and she gets all of my attention for the majority of my day. Anthony and I are still ironing out a schedule for me to work on this. I have almost everything ready to go but I’m still photographing items for listing. I am also going to be sure I don’t start the shop unless I know I can have time dedicated to shipping, answering emails, and anything else the shop requires. I’m Isobel’s Mama first and foremost but I’m not going to open a shop unless I can have dedicated time for my customers, too.
It is my goal to open within the next two weeks. I’m nervous and excited and happy to be able to share the thrifting love!
Parenting really isn’t the balancing act everyone claims it is. The word balance implies that things are held in place statically. Parenting is a juggling act. You don’t sit still for a second. You just try to keep up.
