Some New Boards and Things

 So I've been pretty busy with life and my shop. I did over 50 boards just for Christmas orders. I also started offering just the circles and hooks (or circles, hearts and hooks) I've had a lot of sales on those too. It's been great! Jeff (my hubby) is also helping me come up with some great ways to streamline and take some of the stress out of my life. In the next month or so I will be making some changes that I think EVERYONE will like! Just bear with me. We are moving in a month and a half, so things are going to get crazy, but I am SOOO excited! I will have a room in our new apartment to have all of my craft/Etsy stuff so I can be more organized! Plus when I get settled I'll be doing a GIVEAWAY! More on that later!

Here are some of the new things I've done over the past few months (not all are labeled the 'Pearlized' way, so more to come)

Worst 5 Minutes of My LIFE!

I had the worst few minutes of my life today. Landon wandered away from me in Wal Mart and I couldn't find him. I kept calling for him and he didn't answer. I was trying not to panic, but was getting louder as the seconds and minutes went on.

Then on the intercom I hear "Lost mommy come to the fitting rooms" (I was in the health and beauty section) I hurried over there with tears forming in my eyes. Got to the fitting rooms and saw Landon sitting next to the fitting room attendant. I told her thank you and burst into tears as I hugged my son. We both cried and he apologized for wandering off.

 He thought I was leaving him so he went to the cash registers to look for me (complete opposite direction of where we were) and a Wal Mart employee saw him and took him to the fitting rooms. Very thankful for them! I NEVER want to feel that way again!

 I had to go down a deserted purse isle and compose myself for longer than he was lost. Garrett, who had been with me looking concerned the whole time, said, "mommy scared." Couldn't have been more right!

The rest of the time we were in Wal Mart we kept talking about how I would ALWAYS come find him and that he needs to stay put if he loses me. And he kept saying, "Mom, I will NEVER wander away from you EVER again." I think he was freaked out a little too.

I know almost every mom can relate, and if not now, will. All I can say is, I hope I never have to feel that way again, and I'm so thankful for the employee that took my son to the fitting rooms so they could call me, and for answer to the prayer a frantic mother said hoping her baby was safe.
