I have been working, keeping my mind off my child not being here, but I have to say it is a little easier than I thought. She has been by everyday so far, and keeping her dog is also nice, she has been asking me to go to the vets and Walmart trips with her. So I guess, it is not the end of the world, like I had thought it would be.
I am stressing trying to get things made for the Country Sampler deadline which is Saturday. I made up a new doll, I am going to call her Miz Ruby. Pattern will be available shortly. I went ahead and purchased a commercial license from Ewe 'n' printables, so now I can legally sell the finished bags on my website and through my ad. It is hard believe that this is the June/July issue they are currently working, in a month, I will need to have my new fall items there. Doesn't seem there is even a spring or summer in designing for me anymore, I work through December for my shows and then before I know it is time for the holiday issues.
I am redecorating Samantha's old room, but I did tell her, she can come home anytime she wants. I am turning it into my craft room. I have so much stuff, I really need to sort it out and get some shelving. But that will keep me busy for a while.
Well, back to work and thanks for all the encouraging comments about my empty nest. Hope to have more new items shortly to share with you.
