I'm here!

I'm in "I need a vacation from my vacation" mode. And my kids are on Spring Break, so it ain't exactly happenin'. My performance went very well. (I got to participate in an alumni orchestra concert honoring one of my college conductors, who was also the dean of the BYU School of music, and for a short time, my viola teacher as well). I reconnected with a lot of old friends and enjoyed being "back on stage". My musical involvement has been at a bit of a standstill since Sasha was born (at which point I stopped teaching and began waiting for the performance opportunities to pour in, lol). I'm committed to participate in a recital next month. So this orchestra reunion was a good kick in the pants for me. :)

Anyway, I'll be easing back into blogdom. I had to fill an order of Whimsy Wipes as soon as I got back in town. I'm not even sure I ever announced that good news. A local baby boutique (
Hey, Baby!) is selling my covered wipes containers now! (see storefront below)


And check out this new fabric I've found.

Actually it's an old print, pretty much discontinued... but I got my hands on 2 yards of it a couple weeks ago and it's just perfect for a baby boy, don't you think? Good boy prints are hard to come by and I've found that the boys' covered wipes are my best seller. There are so few fun baby boy artsy crafty things for a new mommy to indulge in!

So back to easing back in... I'll be back around to visit you all soon. After being gone for 5 days I've turned most of my attention to my kids... they've made some pretty big plans for us this week. We've already made a music video, gone book shopping and had lunch with Daddy. Tomorrow is movie day and Friday is spin art day!

Hope you're all enjoying the beginnings of Spring. It really lifts your mood, doesn't it?

Hi there,

I'm here by way of mind-muffins. I love your wipe covers. How cute are they! I'm guessing they have a plastic case inside?

Amber said...

Lei, I wish I had seen you did covered wipe containers. I just did a spotlight on Mile High Mamas for Made by Angie's wipes. I would have loved to feature someone I "know"!

Yvonne said...

You are so amazing. I'm glad the performance went well.

Great job on your orders--that's fabulous. (I love the fabric)

Hope you had a great spring break.
(I know Spring will eventually be here for us ; )

This reminds me that our spring break is next week. We better start planning so it doesn't go to waist.
