Also Known As

My life is a work in progress, also known as WIP.
My Twirly Girl, also known as Audrey (my handicapped daughter), and I have been sick this week with a nasty throat infection. We're both on antibiotics and healing. Nothing like being sick and still having to take care of others. I honestly don't know how WOMEN, also known as Supermoms, do it......but we do!
My nest, also known as home, will be full this weekend with all 6 kids and my wonderful hubby! Sigh........also known as contentment!
I finished the last of my bunnies. I was tired of seeing their painted heads sitting around without bodies.
 Yes, it's too late for Easter sales but that's okay. There is always next year!
I promised myself a 'slow down', also know as resting. I'll be placing my Etsy shop on VACATION MODE for a summer fling with my hubby and kids. My inventory is now 194 items strong. I have 14 items on my table painted and ready for assembly not to mention the other 50 items that are already cut out and waiting for paint, also known as THERAPY. It doesn't cost my husband anything except the price of my wood; which compared to a 'Dr. Psyche' bill is not even worth bringing up, also known as highway robbery. So, I'll finish the 14 items and dress these 2 items that are disturbing me without clothing, also known as NAKED!
This is an original pattern from Sandy Schmidt at The Old Country Cupboard.
I have plans for these whimsical primitives also known as PRIMSY! They will be colorful and funny if I can help it, also known as it will happen! Watermelons, Bumbles, and Peanut Butter Sandwiches! 
I will have my next Giveaway in a few weeks.......just in time for Mother's Day.......so make sure you  keep an eye out for the post.....

Oh I think all of us can relate to this post!! I moved half my creations to the kitchen counter so I could still create while making dinner for the hubby and child :) Enjoy your much deserved vacation (also known as salvation!)

Sounds to me like you are a SUPER MOM. Well, I only know you as Vicky, also known as SWEETHEART.
Love those bunny hops and I wish I looked as good naked as your hanging dolls! Ha! Good to hear you'll be taking some time off to have splendor with your family. Even though we'll miss you :( But, you'll be back!
Happy Easter to y'all.
