The last few weeks I have had an *insane* amount of orders. Like twice as many as normal. I have spent many nights working until bed time just to get everything finished. While the extra money is nice, it's not so fun when you don't have any time to actually do anything with it, and there have been some pretty stressful days.

Currently I am caught up enough to enjoy some free evenings again and am looking forward to the weekend. Let's hope it continues. I feel bad that my only posts over the last month have been dropping off finished ambigram & heart designs. So, what would you like to see? More recipes? Some new Orson pics? I don't think I've managed any crafting recently...

For now I will share the most amusing thing I have on hand ~

In the midst of it all, a lot of changes have been happening around here...
-My husband finally convinced me to raise my custom order prices and I'm so happy that I did. I also changed around the way I charge for extra font sketches, which will make me a lot less grumpy about the additional work.
-Orson is 7 months old, crawling all over the place, and pulling up to standing on everything. I don't think it will be long before he starts walking. He's such a happy, giggly baby now and pretty fun to be around.
-Large tax refund on the way. Yay! It's so nice to not *owe* hundreds of dollars every year anymore.
-I got my first ever cell phone and am not really sure what to do with it yet. It's a lovely shade of green with a touch screen and pull out keyboard and all sorts of features that they will charge me extra for if I try to use them. I love most technology but have avoided the whole cellphone thing for as long as possible but we are switching over from the LAN line to save money.
-I finally got around to changing my username on LiveJournal, which I've been meaning to do for years. "PMThreads" always sounded like I was selling lingerie, and made even less sense once Phunky Monkey closed down. All old links should still forward there.
