hey there.
you may notice that i changed my blog design. again.
i wasn't head over heels for my most recent attempt, then i saw that my fancy friend 
carly has a new shop. well, i knew it was meant for me. or something. i mean, these colors.
something you may not know: when i am stressed out, 
doing things like changing my blog look help me a lot. 
also candy. but mostly getting a little creative.

have you checked the free shipping section today? just sayin'
also sayin', thanks a billion. i'm 8 sales away from 200, y'all!
there's a sweet extra happy for that 200th pair of earrings sold!

a few days ago i spent some time writing notes.
a few were finished, most are waiting for me to return.
i have this little helper, see. so writing notes takes awhile sometimes.

speaking of my little assistant...

he has a super difficult time when we drop patrick off for work.
he wails for his papa, and then i start crying because it's the most distressing thing of all time.
another difficulty is, target is in plain sight of patrick's workplace. elijah adores the big red store.

he was particularly upset the other day and i thought to myself, how can i make this better?
well, an idea came to me. and call me silly, but i believe it was the holy spirit 
telling me to give it a try, because he will give us strength.
i took elijah to target. just the two of us. i avoid such things, y'all.
but? it's high time i start getting some more practice in!
so, off we went. just a few minutes inside, choosing little halloween cards for his cousins.
it was peaceful, and even fun. shopping and checkout were a breeze.
i can't wait to take him again this week!

i'm in psalm 119 today. check it out. these verses stuck with me so far this morning:

incline my heart to your testimonies,
and not to selfish gain!
 turn my eyes from looking at worthless things;
and give me life in your ways.
{psalm 119:36-37}

not the best picture. but it actually is the best, you know?
we unloaded elijah's backpack and he yanked this little paper bag scarecrow and squealed.
it was hilarious and wonderful.
i think he likes it a lot. he keeps it with his pumpkin :)

i feel like today is super busy, and each day this week just gets more so!
it was encouraging to see this tweet earlier, from a fave pastor:

instead of all that you have to do today, 
fill your mind this monday morning 
with all god is for you in his son jesus.


linked with fancy carissa today!
