Getting excited

I feel like I am running in circles - I am sooo impatient. I have always been that way, ever since I was little. It's funny I want time to stand still, I want to be able to pause my life so I can get EVERYTHING done, so I can stare at the blures my children have become and marvel at the little ladies they are growing up to be, and so I can complete my "inventory" for Etsy. This is my biggest hurdle. I want my cards to be done and I want them to be done NOW! lol I want to list what I have already finished... but my mom being ever so wise, has suggested I wait until I have a large enough inventory....

"That I wait"... She has known me for my entire existence on this planet and still she tells me to wait. I dont know how to wait! It's not a part of my genetic make-up. I am the person who gives presents the day that I buy them... regardless of the fact that your birthday is 2 months away. I suppose I will press on and be the good little soldier and be patient -

A few more items to complete and I should be listing soon EEEK I cant wait :)

Testing 1..2...3

I have been "creating" this blog for a few months now, ever the procrastinator I am just now getting it done :) Not really sure which direction this blog thing will go... but looks like fun.

I guess I shall start by making introductions. My name is Melanie and I am many things to many people lol. I am the wife of a Police Officer, the mother of two beautiful little girls, daughter of an Artist and a Musician, flawed child of God, friend to many and enemy of few, lover of animals, family and Church. My weaknesses include pouting children and mexican food. I love to scrapbook... (thats an understatement)

Which is where my budding business comes in... I am trying my hand at selling my creations. For years I have dabbled in creating cards, gifts, etc for friends and family... any excuse to sit at my desk and "scrapbook". My mom, who is a talented artist, suggested that I try setting up shop on Etsy. So I did :) We will see how things go. Regardless of the outcome I am having fun (any excuse to make another trip to Hobby Lobby) Stop by my Etsy shop under Scrapdragons. Well my children are stirring and my day begins.
