And I did. Yesterday was a doozy, and today isn't much better. Here's hoping tomorrow I hit some miraculous recovery because tomorrow I work early in the morning and my entire week is balls to wall busy. Like obscenely busy. As usual.
But we did do some fun stuff and I got some Etsy stuff done.
First up, we went to the hot air balloon festival in Duluth. It was the first one in like a 100 years I think? I've wanted to go to this since I heard about it earlier this spring because I love hot air balloons, but I have never been near one, and I really wanted to ride in one. But of course, due to demand there weren't really going to be rides. Well, if you donated to the festival (it was free to get in), you got put into a lottery for tethered rides. Which I don't know if they even did because Friday the balloons didn't get inflated due to wind. I heard today they didn't go up either. They went up for awhile on Saturday, but we only saw two. Unless you count the ones we saw as we were leaving. Which, is really bullshit.
Because with a working PA system, they could and should have been announcing that balloons were going up. We stood there for an hour looking at the two balloons and it's kind of boring to just stare at a balloon. It mostly consisted of mediocre bands, a bunch of drunk people laying in the lawn, and over priced food. But I got to see balloons up close, so I'm still counting it a win. I was really disappointed to see that other balloons were inflated aw we're in our car. Like, why wouldn't you announce that kind of thing? Like hey, "In 10 minutes, another balloon will be inflated!" or something. Nope, none of that. I would have liked to have seen a balloon go up like that.
So then when we came home, I got a few cards done for my Etsy shop. I haven't done much with that in awhile mostly because I haven't had time. Then we were moving so all of my stuff was packed up. But now that I'm unpacked, I thought I'd go through my scrap bin and see what I could come up with.

So.. I got a few things done. I have some ideas for other stuff but I just need time. And adhesive. I'm perpetually out of adhesive it seems. I might even work on some ornaments to get them in my shop by Christmas. Which feels wrong, but if I can make a little extra money then I'll suck it up!
