derek took the kids to victoria this weekend to visit his parents. it had been a while since our last visit, and i have been so busy lately that it seemed like a good opportunity for me to stay home to catch up and get through the orders i've got lingering around. on that note, i've removed all the custom and made-to-order items from my shop for the week. this should allow me to catch-up, and hopefully add a few new items later this week. i've got a little hallowe'en costume sewing to get finished, too. while it's nice to have this time to work uninterrupted, it's a little still around here, almost too quiet. almost.
