It has been a looonngg winter here in Minneapolis. It pretends to become spring, then it snows. and stays. and is cold.
It is very difficult to get motivated when the weather is like this.
It is difficult to even get out of bed and go to work/school!
But, I am doing it. I have been going to work and to school. I even got officially accepted to Minnesota State University-Mankato for the fall in their Elementary Education program! I graduate from Normandale Community College on May 20th!
Some other exciting things I have been doing is teaching Tap Fitness classes for Minneapolis Community Education (adults!). I teach on Monday nights at Pratt Elementary School and on Wednesdays at Washburn High School. So I have been pretty busy!
Also, I have been trying to make the transition from having a “working” sewing room into a “working” etching studio. It isn’t too much of a difference, as I still have my sewing things, like industrial machines, in the room, but I have turned my cutting table into my etching table!
I started working on Saturdays at a quit shop! It is called Blue Bamboo. I am loving it. I am a little crazy because I really have no days off anymore, but a lot of times, it is easier for me to get along in life to stay busy. I am sad that I have to take a few Saturdays off this summer, but it is for good reason!
I will be selling at the Midtown Farmers Market! Here is my calendar of days I will be selling there:
Saturdays 8:00 a.m. to 1:00p.m.
Tuesdays 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
I will also be selling at Johnstock in Northeast Minneapolis on Saturday, June 1, 10am-6pm. I am excited about this one because my good friend April will also be at the event! We used to do this show years and years ago, and we sold in a tent together under the name Brightlounge Boutique. Those were fun days! I will one day I will start sewing fun things again.
Talking with my roommate about making a fun new food blog. It will be exciting! I will post it on here as soon as we start….
