So, that helped my mood a tad. Now you will never guess what my next project is to brighten my mood, this is a strange one...buy new underwear!! TA DA!! How funny is that. So, tomorrow, when my hubby goes out of town, I am off to the mall, life is looking better; have the house to myself, have a clean bedroom, have new underwear...and oh yes, one more thing. New pencil/pen from the office store. Nothing, and I mean nothing, lightens your load like a new pen/pencil and pad of paper. True bliss.
And then I am off to my art room to paint, yes, I need to paint...in my new underwear...
Here is what the Shop Sisters look like when wearing new underwear...HA!! See, we are happy happy happy happy!!

The Little World...
What is this fascination my family has with the little world? My mother's initials were E.L.F., our niece has the same initials, and she just had a baby with name of Aubrey, whose meaning translates to "Elf." Our father made gorgeous doll furniture - now in the homes of many miniature collectors, and our parents helped establish the Cleveland Miniature society. My mother had a ceramic elf collection, which she displayed on the mantle every Christmas, they are now divided amongst us siblings.
When I was a child, I made tiny houses, barns, horses, clothes and paper dolls, all out of cardboard. Was our family really pixies in a different life?!?!?
Our etsy shop has many prints of our silhouette cuttings, and now the latest is a wee smaller version of them, 2.5" x 3.5". They look so sweet, you can't stop touching them. Some are inspirational, and need to be on your desk, so you can be reminded of their message every day.
So, I was wondering...do mice really have beds made out of match box holders? You know, hidden behind the walls thru their mice hole...like you see in the cartoons? Who knows? I bet they do...

You would think we would be better at this blog writing thing...well...me not so much, but I can blame my "little" sister - she is the English major. (It is why God created little sisters...you know...to blame stuff on.)
Boy and His Dog...Friends
We have lots of new prints up on Etsy TheShopSisters, They are so colorful and inspirational. That is what we need...inspiration to stay current on this blog!
Actually, we shop sisters live in two different states, but we are having a meeting of the minds in one city this Saturday, we will probably spend more time eating and chatting than taking care of business! Eh...I think better on a full stomach.
It is fun having your own online "shop" to play with, but haven't you ever gone into a neat little store somewhere with lots of fascinating things to look at and touch? And haven't you dreamed that you would one day have a shop of your own to play with? I bet you have. Well, I guess Etsy is the closest store most of us will ever have.
Ok, I am off to dust off the prints in our "shop"...really just going to check if little sister is there too, better have a cup of coffee ready for me - 'cause you know - that is why He created little sisters - to wait on you.
