I don't think I had mentioned on my blog, if I did then I will just claim parrot syndrome, but events have allowed me to be mostly stay at home mom. I am still working very part time a couple times a week, but mostly I am a SAHM. I am happy to say that the state of our house has greatly improved since I started staying at home. But the thing I am most thrilled about is business. I invested in The Etsy Success Kit from The Buzz on Etsy, which has been a phenomenal help, and combined with the time I can give my online presence now, business is better than it has ever been! January was the best month we have had to date, which is a lot considering how bad January usually is in retail overall. We still have a lot of upcoming projects, but I will share those as they come along ; )
The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.
