Dealing with life stuff & a quick handmade sign...

It's late.
And i'm overwhelmed. 

I probably should just head to bed now...
but it's one of those 'can't sit still' kind of overwhelmed nights.

There's a million things on my mental to do list
and I just want to cross them all out and tell the whole dang list that it's supposed to be summer.
But I guess that's not how it works.
Sometimes I just don't like being an adult with all this responsibility stuff. 
If you can't tell, I'm totally on a venting rampage.

Please still love me :)

There's been a lot of personal stuff going on with random stressful situations and I just wish life would stop throwing us so many curveballs at the moment and let me breathe. 

Hubby is good at taking everything in stride and telling me that everything will be fine and will work out.
Me? Not so much.
I'm more of the 'fix it now' personality and my head goes crazy trying to sort everything out. 
And to be honest, his 'everything will be fine' take on things sometimes just makes me even more crazy.

And selfishly, I feel a bit put out because I had so many things on my 'crafty to do list' for this summer that just don't seem like they'll be happening after all. 
You know, because of the whole money & time thing that I don't have currently...

Maybe I'm just in that whole limbo period of having my one year of classes left until I'm done.
Which freaks me out a bit, to be honest. 
Being done with school isn't something that has really ever crossed my mind in it's full reality yet. 
And it's scary to think that our lives will be drastically different starting next august. 
Wow. I'm soooo off topic it's not funny.

Which is why I should head to bed :)
I love having you guys around to talk too when my head gets too full of life stuff. 
I just wish we could pull up a chair, grab a cup of tea and hug it out. 
Cuz I need some girlfriend hugs right now. 
Not the whole manly 'don't worry about it' mantra.
I just need a good old fashioned girls night out. 
Wish you guys were closer :/

On to the whole 'handmade sign' thing because that's what you're really here for :)

I made this sign a couple weeks ago for a sweet client and I just love it. 
Nothing super new or fancy about it.
But there's nothing like a good, tried & true, handmade sign.

Isn't it pretty?
I love the brown and cream colors together!!

Little man calls her 'mrs. parrot' whenever she comes over which is way too cute :) 
At least he remembers her last name is some sort of a bird. 

Hope you guys are having a great week so far!
I'm so glad to have you as friends!

Thanks for letting me air out my craziness in my head & then follow it up with fun pictures. 
Totally a normal day for me- :)
Now...heading to that bed...
