We went with a Canon EOS Rebel XSi. I'm so excited! It's a huge upgrade from our other camera, so look forward to some awesome photos in the near future.

So, to help my mom and I win a new sewing machine (each!) go to this link to vote for our ornament. You can vote once a day, so don't hesitate to vote more than once.
Lucille (my machine) locked up last night and the wheel won't turn, so I could use a new machine right now. I'm breaking out the spare until she's fixed (luckily Lucille still has a warranty to cover her, but it's still an inconvenience).
We appreciate you helping us win this competition!

So, in the short term, I am going to work on my inventory for Sewbot's Laboratory. By March 1st, 2009, I will have a minimum of 21-24 items listed in my Etsy shop.
I have discovered that the only way this plan will ever work is if I try it; so that's exactly what I am going to do. I will be busy working on projects and improving the quality of life for my little family.
*I wrote this rough plan a few nights ago and it's really been pushing me to go for the things I want. I wanted to share it with you in hopes that it might get you thinking about all the things you can do.

I'm going to start in the month of January by taking Fridays off to work on Sewbot. I'm not starting tomorrow because I know with having today off for the holiday and spending probably half of my day with Jason's sister, I won't really work on anything today. So, tomorrow seemed like it would be an extension of the holiday and I would rather go be paid to work at the office than take it off and turn it into a holiday.
So, I'm really excited about this. I'm planning on getting up like I normally do, but just staying in the studio instead of heading to the office. I'm excited to see what I can accomplish in a day off.
