Another big change!

I'm just full of them lately huh? :)

I finally took the first step yesterday to setting up my own Etsy shop. I know that most of the work will have to be done after we move (hopefully that will be soon!!) but I want to be able to bring in some extra money to the family to save, or use for bills, whatever.

I have some good ideas on what I want to do and I picked out the name of my store... MonkeyPeanut Designs! Monkey is for my oldest son and Peanut is for my youngest :)

It's really very exciting. I've been putting off even thinking about it because it seemed overwhelming but I've realized the past few weeks that I love to be able to create things. This past year I've made 8 crocheted blankets for birthdays and babies and I loved it. Now that I don't have a deadline to make anything I wander around the house not knowing what to do.

So I realize that this is something that really isn't that hard to set up. Plus my oldest will be in school this fall and once my youngest gets just a little older it will be easy for me to work during the day.

I'm really excited about this new adventure. It's another thing that is going to make me grow as a person, and another thing that will make me closer to being like that Proverbs 31 woman. I long to be like her :)

Proverbs 31: 10-31

0 [b]A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate
