The Indigo Forest Is Having A Sale!

As anyone who reads this blog should know, I am the owner of the Etsy store The Indigo Forest. It means so much to my family and me, all of the love I get for my little shop - purchasing from me really helps to support my family and is very much appreciated this Christmas season. I work really hard to create things that I hope lots of people can enjoy (especially children) and knowing that my creations are making people happy is what really keeps me going. Thank you to anyone who has or will be supporting my small business and family!  
As a thank you (and because of Black Friday-Small Business Saturday-Cyber Monday)
I would like to offer the following to all of you! 
I hope to all of those that celebrated Thanksgiving had a lovely day. 
Until next time...

Gratitute Sunday

Today for the first time I'm joining Taryn over at Wooly Moss Roots for Gratitude*Sunday

In Taryn's words: :
G r a t i t u d e * S u n d a y
"{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.}"

* Wonderful family and friends. I couldn't get by without them.

* Recent sales in my shop. I want people to know that when they choose to purchase my creations, they are really helping me to support my family. Thank you! 

* My husband! He's the most amazing man. He's truly my other half, my missing puzzle piece, my soul mate. He's my rock and without him I'd be lost. 

* Extra sleep! 

* Finding more time to create. 

* Cooking delicious meals. Yay! for comfort food!
* Netflix. Seriously, what would I do without Netfix! (probably more constructive things, but oh well. hehe.)
* Cold weather. It may seem silly, but I absolutely love bundling up and getting cozy!
* My children. Each are very unique and I love that they are mine! They make me laugh everyday.

*  Beer! Okay....making beer! It's so much fun and our bottles should be ready to open and try on the 15th!

* A clean house! It seems that it is a rarity, but when it happens I'm very grateful. 

* Above all else of course, there is God. Without whom I'd literately be nothing.

Feeling It.

I'm feeling it lately. The changing season. The air. It's all different, yet so familiar. I've been so unmotivated these last few months, but something has changed recently. I've had the itch to create once again. My shop has been pretty dead lately and I want that to change! I have so many ideas and have been inspired by so many beautiful things lately that I just have to create!  Having three boys makes having extra time hard to find.
My most recent project is this sweet little sock monkey (shown above). My boys have sweetly named him Mr. Monkey and he was made with lots of love ( & some mistakes too.) 
I plan to add some to my shop once I get the stitching down just right. 
Other projects are well underway as well! My husband has taken the hobby of home brewing. He has been writing about his beer making journey on his own blog Bear Foot Brewer. He's pretty new to the blogging world, so please stop on by and show him some love! 
We are about halfway done with the fermentation process and will bottle in a week or so. I can't wait to taste the finished product! 

Wishing everyone the loveliest of days!
