Sorry it's been so quiet around here this week. I don't really have a good excuse, I guess I just haven't had much to say. Since I haven't posted much this week, I have a bunch random thoughts built up in my head that I've been meaning to share. So, here's this week's Thursday Thoughts:
I've come to the realization that I am a binge reader. I love to read, but I don't always have a book started or in progress. On the other hand, when I find a book or a series that I love, I will be completely consumed by it until I have finished reading them. I will literally do nothing but read until I am done, then I'm so sad when it's over I don't want to start reading a different book or series right away. It's like I have to give myself time to mourn the previous book or series before I move on to the next.
I just finished designing a planner for myself. I really wanted an Erin Condren planner, but I just couldn't justify spending the money. Problem solved though because I LOVE the one I created for myself. I was inspired by this one on Infarrantly Creative, and made it my own. I haven't printed it or gotten it bound yet, but my pretty planner will be ready for use by the end of the weekend!
I am loving this song right now. I didn't even realize it was Christina Aguilera singing at first because the female vocals are softer and less powerful than her norm. It's refreshing to see her versatility. Besides that though, I think it would be an amazing song for a moving lyrical/modern dance piece. I'm crossing my fingers that the song is used in the upcoming season of So You Think You Can Dance?
I am going to start testing my own Bath Bomb recipe and scent combinations. After this testing period, I am going to sell them on Etsy! This is still in the very early stages, but I am excited to see where this goes. I'd love to eventually turn my Etsy shop into a one-stop place for all-things gift giving. I love giving gifts, but I don't like giving things you can get just anywhere. I love handmade, creative, cool items, and I want to provide this service to others.
I am going to start with Bath Bombs for a couple reasons. First, I love taking baths and relaxing, so it just seems fitting that I would make something like this. Second, they are easier to make in bigger quantities and have a quick turn around time.
I'd eventually like to add hair bows and bow ties for littles ones, embroidered leather glasses cases, maybe greeting cards, and whatever else I can think of! If you have any advice, feedback, recommendations, etc., I'd love to hear it!
Alright, I'm out! See you when I see you.
