The Happy Housewife

Due to health issues (I suffer from chronic migraines) and obsessive crafting, promoting and etsying, I didn't do any house work for days. And it showed! Today was catch up day. I made a long to do list, and got everything done! Vacuumin, bathroom & kitchen cleaning, laundry,... You name it, I've done it. The place looks sparkly clean again now, which I'm happy about. I'm one of those people who needs to have everything tidy and organized. Mess = Stress to me.

Don't I have the cutest cleaning gloves by the way? I have a thing for buying cute versions of boring things. I also have a pink brush for cleaning the tub, a pink washing up bowl and pink & red polka dotted dish towels. Love! The more pink and red, the better. I actually have red sheets with pink polka dots too. My boyfriend wasn't too impressed when he saw those!

7 Facts About Me!

Remember the 7 Facts About Me thingie I did earlier this week? Sweet Beans and Woosle tagged me back, so here I am qith 7 more facts about me:

1. I like to watch Star Trek with my boyfriend. I didn't think I'd ever like it, as I used to hate it. But he managed to make me love our Star Trek nights.
2. I've had the urge to go to London for weeks now. I love that city. I'm saving up for the excessive shopping I'll undoubtedly do there though, so I can't go yet!
3. I love baking, but I never eat any cake or pie myself, because my stomach screws up when I do.
4. I started blogging to promote my shop, but I enjoy it so much that now I just blog because I love it.
4. I have two Blythe dolls.
5. I drink at least 1.5 liter of tea a day.
6. I love writing letters and have a whole bunch of penpals.
7. I have a stationery obsession. I have about 5 drawers full of it. It's lucky that I have so many penpals, or else it'd get more and more and take over the apartment!

I'm not tagging anyone this time, because I already did, but if you want to do this, just look in my other facts post for the rules!

On top of all the cleaning, I did today, I made some of these cute polkadotted hair clips (available on Tizzalicious.com already, and coming to Etsy soon!) and I made my 10th Etsy Sale! LePetitBoutique bought a set of my green apple hair clips. They were the most popular product in my shop by far, and had tons of hearts, so I'd been wondering when they would sell! I added a new pair to the shop right away! I wonder if they will do just as good!

LePetitBoutique has an amazing shop herself by the way, with the cutest Blythe dresses! Check her out if you love Blythe! I will have to feature her some day.

I did my first custom order too. Someone preferred having only 1 clip, instead of a pair. Does anyone else feel that way? Do you think I should start selling singles?

I guess that was enough for today. I can't believe how much I wrote! I hope I didn't bore anyone to death.

  1. I seriously need to invest in some cleaning gloves. I hope I can score a cute pair like yours. :) My hands have been getting more and more dry, it's annoying. It doesn't help that I'm in the dishwasher of the household either.

  9. I'm so sorry to hear you're feeling under the weather. Get well soon!

    Oh, I share your love for Star Trek! The Next Generation, anyway. I can't watch the classics to save my life.

  10. I've just stumbled across your blog, and there is nothing like a pair of insanely cute rubber gloves to reel me in.
    I also love those little barrettes - they are little strawberries for the hair. :)

  11. Whoa! One clip? No, I've never had the urge for just one, I think. That makes sense though since lots of people have side parts I guess? Maybe you don't need two! I don't really use hair clips and I have a side part... but I'd just get two so I have an extra just in case. =D
