"Chicken Spots"

Guess what....the varicella vaccine has a rather rare side effect. One can actually get the chicken there is only a 1-in 100 (or something like that) chance though many kids get 5-10 spots. Well Boo was required to get the vaccine to start kindergarten so I took him and HE GOT THE CHICKEN POX! So he got to attend for 2 days then stay home for a week. He's going back today though he still doesn't feel all that great. He's in the life skill class so they can let him sleep if he gets too grumpy.
Now I'm behind again so we've had to push back the re-opening again. We will also be taking a break later for about 2 weeks because Boo has been granted a wish from the Make-A-Wish foundation!! We're taking him to Disney World. Hopefully this trip will go better than last time we went to Florida...long story short...that's when Boo had his first seizure-at the airport as we are getting on the plane. Mom & Dad continued to Florida and Boo, Gracie and I went to St. Vincent Hospital. We did get there a day & a half later but we missed doing some of Gracie's birthday stuff since the trip was cut short. Still it was nice to get away...that was 4 years ago. Now he's old enough to enjoy it so we're going back. I'll post the trip dates when I know. Have a great day everyone!

It's August already!

Boo is doing a bit better post surgery. He should get to start school on the 12th with everyone else. Gracie is also ready to get back to school though her nerves are getting to her. I personally can't wait for school to start so I can get a bit of sewing done.
I'm still hoping for a mid-August reopening. We have several post-op follow-up appointments to go to before I can make it "official" but it looks promising. :)
Due to the CPSIA legislation I will be doing a lot of reworking things in my shop. I'm still working on being able to make things for those 12 and under. I think I've got the rules figured out so I just need to figure out how to make them workable in my situation. I also know that I will be doing very few custom orders for now. They just take a lot of time I don't have right now. Like I said before though, if you need something PLEASE let me know and I'll see if I can help you out.
I am also going to start selling off my extra supplies-the colors of PUL I know I can't use at home. If you can use diaper making supplies then keep checking back once I get re-opened. They will be at my cost (or very close) plus shipping. I just want someone to be able to use them. Thanks for your patience & understanding everyone!
