.... Just missing him...

I went ahead and got a lot of new aprons done this week...  but today just sucks! I found mold in the brand new restroom, little dog decided to poop in my kitchen and smear it! its raining and humid, the basement is being supper creepy and smelly, and my house is still completely under construction... I crate things because its my way to not get so down when things are high stress full... but today i could really use my husband touch and encouragement.

till next time

And so the Yellow comes out...

My husband deployed Yesterday, my home has been a bit crazy since the last post. I was totally fine once they told them its time to "Roll Out". I didn't cry, feel sad or complain. I gave him one last hug and kiss, we smiled and he got on the buss. I waved till i could not see it anymore and that was that. It wasn't till 6 pm came that i started feeling worried... In our normal day to day he would wake up at 4:30am and leave around 5:45 am and if it was a  long day at work he would be home by 6 pm. So i refused to  get sad or cry and went to JO-ANNS and bout two yards of Yellow Plain fabric to make a huge Yellow Ribbon to but on the the tree in the front of our home. Then it got way in the house so i went to shower and bamb! it hit me, i wont be held, kissed or see him for a while, my best friend is gone. i just sopped. then i cryed more when i took the dogs out to potty cause they were sad too...
UH it was just a sad night... But i am ok,
i had so many ideas to keep business running as usual, nope didn't happen lol.
The yellow is out and will stay out till he comes home again...

Miss you already love,

Hey Everyone!
     My name is Jessica I'm Art nerd, Daughter, Wife, Little Sister, a Big sister and OCD like Crafty person . I began making hair bows one night because i could NOT sleep and the next day i was bored so i went to yard sale with my boss at the time (i was a real face painter) wearing my bow i made and this girl in her teens was so... well this is what she said "Holly crap where did you buy that?" hehehe i was a bit shocked and as soon as i said i made them i had my first order of bows for about 3 teenage girls.
      Then I thought I have the time and this would work around my husband schedule too (he is the United States Army). So we sat down talked it over and it was done. I would start my own little handmade "thingy" business lol. We called it thingy cause we didn't have a full idea of what exactly i was going to make and not make... then i felt stuck so i said nope. I tossed that feeling of restriction and just started creating things: Bags, Touts, Dresses, Halter tops, Phone cozies, Laptop Cozies, Receiving Blanket, Plush toys ect
      That same week i had to drive from Watertown, NY to New York City for my cousin wedding ... with in that 6 hour drive of pure rain kept thinking of a name for my little craft shop in the works... but nothing. Finally the first night in I'm sitting with my mom tell her all that on my mind and how i want a name with meaning... and she says how about your last name "No i want something that has even more"
she says "Nanita" i sighed "that's perfect mom in honor of our Sister"with the softest face this 50+ year old women says the name again "Nanita's Goods"
Susana Neri is my big sister she was had Retts Syndrome. She lived to be 15 years old on April 14 1989. My other sister aka Babs 18 and My Brother Sal 13 at the time... i was 1 year and 10 days old. They got to know her, she got to know me but i did not or i should say cant remember... So in loving memory i strive to do my best, to live my life to the fullest and to make all my little things with extra love as if i was making them for her.

My online store on esty should be open this weekend. I will Post it as soon as it is.
Thanks for reading and Hope you all are safe and well.
