Made of Heart Monday – Week 2

I got all excited about more blogging and business building and then my modem blew up. Any idea how hard it is to do cyber things from a dying ancient phone and no real internet access? Now that we’re live again we can get busy with it, but that means that our second week of our Made of Heart link up is more than a week from the first one. You forgive me right? Thank you to everyone who participated! In addition to participating in our handmade link ups you can join us on Pinterest where I’ve created a board for promoting small crafters.

The most clicked item from week 1 of Made of Heart Monday was this sweet piece from Bugaboo Bear Designs.

Long Distance Love State Wall Art, personalized, couples gift, chalkboard art, My Love will Find You Wherever you are,

It reminded me of long deployments and the frequent separations of military life; knowing that no matter the distance love spans space and time. I loved it so much I was inspired to create this treasury on Etsy:

'One Who Waits' by sbuccellato

Nothing harder than a deployment, nothing greater than that next first kiss, nowhere too far that love can't reach. To all the families serving a few items of comfort and pride.

I just loved this Mon-stor from Lu & Ed. I totally need a couple for chaos containment around here.



Being disconnected means I got a lot of work done and there are some new friends ready for adoption in our shop; like Neapolitan, a chocolate and pink yeti.
