Plenty of Projects

I’m really sorry about not getting posts up. 
In all honesty I’ve been really struggling with this being a mom thing. 
Don’t get me wrong.. I love it and I love my little guy, but it is HARD.
I don’t know if my little one has colic or is just having several growth spurts. 
He’ll be great some days and I’ll get the house cleaned, posts written, dinner done and start making plans for the future. 
Then, other days (like the past couple) he cries all the time. And, I mean ALL the time. We are assuming they are growth spurts because he is also hungry all the time on these crazy crying days. 
But, he is lovely and healthy so I am very thankful (even if he can rival me in screaming volume). 
But, enough excuses… onto the projects!
Etsy Shop
I know I’ve said it before, but I think it may actually happen this time. I should have my Etsy shop up with handmade party supplies by the end of October. I’ve been gathering inspiration, making lists, and collecting supplies over the past few months. I will be starting production THIS weekend! 
Is there anything in particular that you would like to see in the shop?
What type of party supplies do you look for when shopping Etsy?
Another Blog
 
Are you asking yourself, “Really!?! She can barely handle this blog!”
Well, you’re right… this is something in the long term project file. But, my {Mommy Monday} posts have been fairly popular and have (at times) received more comments and page views that my other posts. That is really exciting for me and I LOVE talking about being a mom. But, this is a party blog and I would like to keep its focus on parties. So, I am thinking about starting another blog that focuses on being a mom and more about my personal life.  

I’m completely stumped on a blog name…. suggestions?
Would you read a blog that was more about being a mom or do you think you’d just stick with the party blog?
Halloween
If you can’t tell from previous posts… I love Halloween.
It is my holiday to throw a party EVERY year. 
Three years ago I threw a Haunted Halloween Dinner
Two years ago I threw a Bewitching Ball.
Last year we had a Mad Tea Party
  Plans are now in the works for a Spirited Cocktail Party.
I’m currently pinning away Halloween ideas and beginning my menu planning. 
(Getting the newest Martha Stewart Halloween magazine sure did help get the process going!)
What are you doing for Halloween?
Do you have any suggestions for a 
“Spirited” Halloween Cocktail Party?
A Portland Blogger’s Meet-Up 
I read a LOT of blogs daily. 
Several of the bloggers that I read happen to live in Portland (where I reside). Some of these people I’ve been following their blogs for so long I feel like I know them better than my own RL friends. 
Weird, huh?
I’ve been thinking about the possibility of meeting a few of these bloggers IRL, but don’t want to come off as a stalker. Recently reading THIS POST from The Little Things We Do has inspired me to try to get a Portland Blogger Meet-Up organized.
Have you been a part of a blogger’s meet-up of some sort? If so, what did you do? 
 Are you a Portland Blogger who would like to be a part of this? If so, when would be a good time/place to meet? E-mail me!

As always… thank you for reading and sticking with the blog even with my recent sporadic posting. I’d love it if you would take the time to help me with my projects by answering some of the above questions.
And, if you have a project you need help on… 
feel free to tell me all about it!
