Is it Friday already?

I am sitting down with a cup of steaming coffee to reflect on the past 7 days. And what a week it has been.

••• On Saturday my talented sis Leslie opened her etsy shop called clayshapes.

She has been in a gazillion treasuries already — and everyone is checking out her shop. I check everyday to see what new pieces she has added. It is so much fun to discover her work each day. Try it, you will see what I mean!

••• On Monday our Son Aaron launched his kickstarter site to raise money for his new project the Brooklyn Night Bazaar. Check out the video! And pledge away. Or at least pass this on to everyone you know!
Aaron has been working non stop on this project and I have had the pleasure of working through branding and design ideas with him on a daily basis. It has been a great mother/son bonding experience. Very proud ema. Kol hakavod ben!

••• Last week after patiently waiting until after the holiday rush, I received news that I had been accepted into the coveted Etsy Chai team.

There are a lot of rules and I have been studying all of the emails I received from Linda who is the team "ema" (or — the Yahoo List Mom & Membership Maven) to be sure I am doing everything I need to be doing to remain a team member in good standing.

It was a busy week so I finally got around to making my first team treasury today. It gave me a chance to meet the team members and get to know them through their work. In honour of valentines day, I chose pink tones. Hope it puts you in the mood for love!

••• On the home front, I am working on a new series of Ketubah designs based on my pencil doodles. Here is a sneak preview of bits of artwork:

It has been a busy but fruitful week. Lots to think about and lots to be grateful for. Coffee cup is empty — but my wine glass is full!
