I wish that I could say that the rest of the week has been better but that would be a lie. The deluge of students shows no sign off letting up. This is a Spring registration period unlike any of us has ever experienced. I talked some in this post a few months ago about my thoughts on this group of freshman. I'm starting to get the idea that they are going to need extra time and attention from here on out. We have another week and a half of all walk-ins and then I go back on appointments, which sounds like heaven at this point.
Last week I got my mother in law a little pick me up gift from Zizzy Bob Baskets. I follow Zizzy's blog and have admired her work for awhile now. My MIL is having a hard time right now with her older brother's health going down hill fast. She's having to take on way too much of dealing with his problems since his only son lives in Georgia. It's definitely wearing her down and I wanted to let her know that I was thinking about her. I got the seasonal basket above and I'll probably fill it with her favorite candy.
A few weeks ago I treated myself to one of my blog friend, Nancy from Nfall2rt Designs, contained pendants. I love the simple and organic design of them. It's like wearing a piece of art around my neck and goes with just about everything. I blogged about Nancy awhile ago here.
I definitely feel an impulse purchase coming on today from my favorites on Etsy. Handmade retail therapy is the best kind. If you want to try to tempt me with something from your shop leave a link. I'm feeling particularly weak today.
