Weekly Wishes #4

The Nectar Collective
It turns out I am kind of failing miserably at sprucing up my etsy shop because I didn't do anything with it again last week. This is good news though! I know what you're thinking. . . failure = good news? Yes. Through another week of failure, I have realized that I am seriously lacking inspiration right now. I didn't really realize how much this short season of baby-induced sleepless nights has zapped my creative brain until I tried to sit down and put together a few prints for my sister. My brain couldn't put together fonts or colors. I was even struggling with word arrangement. 

So, this week's wish will be to get creative!

I am determined to do something each day this week to get creative and hopefully get inspired by some of this creativity. Last week's wish (and the week before that) has now become my month of August wish. I'll accomplish it - little by little. 

Now, I just have to rest my brain enough to figure out what creative things I can get my hands dirty with this week.

Weekly Wishes #2

On last week's weekly wishes post, I was blown away by all of the support I received in the comments + twitter from this community on the internet. Seriously, I needed the village to help out raising my two little ones last week. I was just off my game all week and, as a momma, you normally don't get a break to recompose yourself. 

Thankfully, I had you guys and my momma made a trip up here to save the day on Thursday. It was an amazing, family filled weekend with no time to rest, but it was just what I needed to recharge the batteries and keep myself from overreacting to the little stresses of mommyhood. Not overreacting is something I need to keep in mind on the daily since I'm currently the stay-at-home to two very independent little ladies. 

Last week started out rough, but it was definitely a success!

This week, my weekly wish is to get my behind in gear and spruce up my etsy shop. It's pretty much bare bones right now. Unfortunately, I've been neglecting my poor little shop for the past couple months. This week though, that will change! I am determined to add many more prints and start taking things a bit more seriously. 

Now I'm off to go make this happen! Happy Monday!

Father's Day Ideas

Didn't we just celebrate Mother's Day? Sometimes I feel like we are celebrating a holiday every week! However, this is one of the holidays that really deserves to be celebrated. Father's Day is just around the corner (June 16th). Whether you're thanking your dad for not disowning you during those rough teenage years or giving your hubby a pat on the back for being a such a great dad to your little ones, here are two great ideas for Father's Day gifts from some very cute etsy shops:
I wrote about this incredibly adorable Etsy shop when I was hinting to my husband what to get me for Mother's Day. Rain from Cheeky Kumquat makes the most hilarious cards that I have seen in a while. Go check out her shop, you will not be disappointed!
I have seen a lot of these road shirts on Pinterest and you could certainly DIY your own, but look at what a great job they did on this one! The Blue Basket Shop did a fantastic job on this shirt. In fact, this is the ONLY item listed in the shop. I would say 'go check them out,' but this is pretty much it. If you want to get a t-shirt for the dad on your list that doubles as an activity for the kids and a back massage for dad, go buy this one now. I'm thinking I should get one for myself now. :)

Yeah, so I could only come up with two good ideas. It's hard to find a guy a good gift. 

Hope you find the perfect gift for your father / grandfather / husband / brother / uncle or whoever you are celebrating on Father's Day! :)
