I know, I know..."I've been busy" is the worst excuse in the world, but this has really been beyond madness!
In just the past month, I've started a new day job (YAY day job!) so that's been taking up a lot of my brain time.
Then I had the awesome opportunity to go see "Sleep No More", which is this amazing immersive play based on Macbeth. It's basically Hitchcock and MacBeth had a love child...it would be this experience. If you haven't been, and you were thinking about visiting NYC in the next month or so...definitely make the time to go see it. It's worth the $100. It's like being trapped in a dream or a video game. Only without having to worry about dying or monsters killing you. Insanely surreal and utterly amazing!

Then my inlaws came up to visit for a few days. While I adore them and love hosting them, right when they visited, was right when my Etsy store decided to go crazy with orders! So I had to juggle being a gracious hostess, with the madness of family get-togethers, with fullfilling orders as fast as my little Sweatshop fingers could go (PSA - glue guns are capable of inflicting 2nd degree burns...be careful kids!).
This weekend, my BFF is coming down, and bringing me some minions so that we can whip out 40+ hair flowers as party favors for her wedding...and also making a very special wedding bouquet!
Basically every weekend has been madness. So my normally pristine house and Sweatshop looks like a tornado blew through it...and I haven't had time to clean (I've barely had time to do laundry)!
And despite how busy I am, I'm just so grateful that I get to be so joyously busy. Yes, I'm tired, yes I just want a weekend to curl up and sleep and veg out...but I'm glad that this kind of busy is the fun kind of busy - the kind of busy that is really tons of fun and better then the alternative. I just wish it wasn't happening all at once!
So...long story short...not dead yet! I'm here and pushing out products with as little sleep as I can get away with! I promise, lots of fun bloggy updates coming soon. In the meantime...GO SEE "SLEEP NO MORE". It was seriously worth the angst of having to work double time to make up for the loss of a weekend of fun!
