Good Monday everyone!
I know most people hate Mondays, but, to me, it’s the day when everything goes back to normal. I get to control the schedule….at least between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. During that time my house is my kingdom. This Monday is even more special because the hubby goes back to the day shift after 2 or 3 months on night shift where I had to be VERY quiet during the day in our small house because he was sleeping and then 2 1/2 weeks of vacation where I pretty much followed a schedule which was also not entirely ours due to circumstances beyond our control. I can now wake up at 5:00 instead of 3:45 and have everyone out the door by 6:37. The teenage girl is very particular and doesn’t go out to the bus until she absolutely has to. I can now resume my regularly scheduled programming.
H is also starting a class for work tonight so 2 nights a week I won’t have to have dinner on the table. Next Monday is my first sewing class at ReChic Unique. I just realized how far away from the blog I’ve been. ReChic Unique Boutique is a brand new shop in DeMotte, IN. The owners like to call it a community of women. It’s really great! It’s owned by 2 women, Pat and Kris, and local crafters, who make very good quality products, pay a monthly fee to sell their wares in the shop. It’s not rented booth space. One woman who works there is a decorator and she mixes and matches everyone’s items into beautiful, adorable displays. Everything in the shop is Made in the USA by local crafts people except for some fillers here and there to make it look nice. All the vendors are fairly local, about a 50 mile radius max, and very friendly. I really think of it as my shop. Anytime I refer to “the boutique” that is where I’m talking about.
Anyway, I asked if they would allow me to teach a sewing class there occasionally and the interest has been so wonderful that they have asked me to plan more! My first class is a beginner sewing class where we’ll be making reversible placemats. That is on Monday, May 11th, from 5-7 p.m. and it is full! I am also planning some intermediate classes and a beginner sewing series for kids. It’s very exciting and a little scary all at once because I’ve never taught sewing before. I know it’s gonna rock though!!! I bought 5 new Brother sewing machines for the attendees to use or they can bring their own if they have one. I’ll post pictures of the projects here afterward.
I’m feeling motivated and excited to get my day started so I’ll talk to everyone later! I’ll say it again,
Good Monday everyone!!!!
I’m also linking this to Project Optimism which posts on Mondays. Hmmm…that link doesn’t seem to exist anymore so I’ll open one from here. If you wish to post about anything that makes you happy or optimistic on a Monday just tag your post with Project Optimism and link it here on my Project Optimism page and spread the word so more people can start off their Mondays on a positive note!
