Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to my wonderful sister!  I don't know who I would be without her.  She is the creative mastermind behind these buttons... shawl pins... all of it.  She is a caring, kind, patient person who tolerates all of my unfortunate craziness. 

We are celebrating her birthday in our shop on Etsy.  Use the coupon code BDAY15 and you will received 15% off your total order.  The coupon is good through August 25th (which just happens to be our mom's birthday. 

Liz is on the left in this photo with our older brother and our Grandpa.  I wonder if she'll like this photo?

What if they find out?

I struggle with the constant feeling of not measuring up... and I always worry about others finding out!  That's my biggest secret.  (maybe it's not as big a secret as I think...)  What if they find out that I don't know what I'm doing?  What if they find out that I can't juggle all the things on my plate?  What if they find out my house (life!) is a giant mess?  So, I am outing myself.  I can't keep up with my life, as hard as I try.  So what now?  Move on.

I love this whole KokoNoelle business... time spent on something with my sister, going to shows and meeting people especially.  I don't like the fear of being found out that it's another place where I don't know what I'm doing! 

So, today, I'm picking myself up again.  We took tons of shawl pin photos yesterday.  There will be much shop updating in the next 2 weeks and then on August 17th, a sale to celebrate Liz's birthday!!!
