Most of us here in Michigan had an extra long weekend, and no not because of the Super Bowl! We had a big snow storm here last night and most of us are snowed in!! The kids had a snow day and I had a work snow day! It’s such a great feeling to work for a great company that is so thoughtful for their employee’s and their safety!!
So anyways, with an extra day to be home and craft, I decided to finish up a few Etsy orders and get some new things out there for folks to purchase! I just made this super cute Detroit Tiger’s Shirt that I think will be a hot seller since EVERYONE loves the Tigers!
I also designed some Valentine’s Day Cards for my son and decided that why not add them to Etsy to share if anyone else wanted to be able to use them!
Both of my son’s are still playing lots of hockey, either out in our front yard, or at the rink. Caden got to practice with the Michigan State Spartans hockey team on his birthday and that was exciting for him! Brody gets to do it in a couple of weeks. But Brody also got to participate in a shoot-out between periods at the MSU vs OSU hockey game on January 24th and it was such a great experience! We were so proud of him and of course, he SCORED!!!

This is the summer of thrift shopping!! We LOVE going to Goodwill and other thrift stores to see what we can find! My mom is/has always been a bargain shopper, sorting through racks of clothes, we always had great things at the stores on clearance and sale! Saving money is key since I was laid off in December, so just finding cool things at the store is a great thing!! As Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are singing in “Thrift Shop”, it quickly became a favorite song of my oldest son. But now it’s our theme song for the summer. We are making UpCycled/Recycled Shirts Scarves! 🙂 What a better way to give a shirt a new life!! With the help of my mom we are selling them on my Etsy Shop.
We can use any knit shirts to make them! If you have some old shirts from your college days, or your local high school and you’d love another way to show them off, perfect way to do so!! You can send us your old shirts and we can turn them into a scarf!
I can’t wait to go to a Detroit Tiger’s game and ROCK my new scarf!! Too bad it’s mid-summer and I’d be dying of heat right now! 🙂 But come fall, I’m ready!
