Life's Little Surprises

This past week was a little crazy...much like this leprechaun sculpture I saw at a yard sale the other day.
I think it had something to do with the impending full moon which is tonight. But I digress, let's just say the week was filled with some surprises...a mis-set alarm on the first day of school, a willful child in my first art class, computer systems down at work...basically nothing went as planned but I also got a very big happy surprise too! I won a trip to Seattle to the School House Craft Conference!

I entered on a whim a couple weeks ago and lo and behold I actually won! I'm really excited about it. 
For those of you that know me or have been following the Horse & Hare blog over the past year, you know how I've been working to build up our etsy and freelance businesses. This conference is all about running creative small businesses focusing on craft, art and design. Some of the classes are - Organize your Business and Create Life Balance, Productivity for the Overwhelmed  (that's for me!), Blogging 101 and an etsy admin will be reviewing shops each day. See the complete class list here
Well, hopefully next week with the full moon come and gone the trip will go off without a hitch and I will be sure to set two alarms for my second first day of school of the year! Wish me luck!
