May is always a busy month for us because, besides Mother’s Day, it is my mother in law and husband’s birthday month, so at least 3 weekends of the month, we’re doing something! I have continued with my maternity jeans independent contract, which has turned out to be as perfect a gig as I anticipated. Alycia of Eeny Meeny Maternity is wonderful to work with and I’m getting the jeans transformation down to a science.
Also, being as it is Bridal Season, I’ve altered a few Bridesmaids dresses, one of the most involved of which was for a 8 1/2 months pregnant daughter of my office manager. The wedding was Saturday and I’m dying to know tomorrow if she got to wear the dress, or had the baby instead! (sheesh! I tried to tell her at the beginning of all this to say, “No”!) lol.
Our garden is growing big, but we’ve not had much to harvest yet. The few strawberries that came in got eaten by some birds (!) but I did manage to get 1 1/2 off. Here’s how it’s looking now, as DS helps DH water it. The corn today is almost to our shoulders when we stand next to it! (This pic was taken last week)
Also, since it was a long weekend, we were able to get away to see my father in law who lives in Hermosa Beach, 1/2 a block from the beach! It was wonderful there! And we really enjoyed our time relaxing.
So that’s our story! Today I’ve sewn some curtains for a co-worker (any tips on pricing them!?) and received an email about a possible drop-ship wholesale opportunity. Have any of you done that before? I’d love your input! Other than that, I’m trying to figure out if I should try to get some more sewing done before DS wakes up, clean the house, or start planning DH’s 30th birthday party for next weekend!! We’ll see by the end of the day what, if any of that, gets done! 🙂
