Better Than Ever ♥

Well on the heels of a pretty intense sickness and a bit of time off of work because of it, I have finally decided that here, at home, is where my presence is the most needed. That's right, I won't be returning to my job. There are a lot of circumstances involved in my decision, and a lot of wonderful advice from some amazing and helpful friends, but what it came down to was that I wasn't happy. After a long discussion with my husband, we both agreed that we would rather be happy penny pinchers than miserable people with extra money. And let me tell you, the kids are happier, the house is cleaner, and after lots and lots of prayers about which direction I should go, I'm at peace with my decision.

So the return of my presence at home of course means the return of my much neglected etsy shop! Oh Mandie is open again and in the next few days I'll be adding lots and lots of new bits and baubles and introducing some brand new items as well!
I'm excited to be doing what I love again and feeding my creative soul! Here's a sneak peek of some of my new, soon to be listed items.

Oh sweet crafting, how I've missed you!!
