Friday is my day: SoleDeVita

Happy Friday to all! This is Morrgan's hubby, filling in for her flu-ridden self while she convalesces under a fit of blankets.

Today we'll take a trip to Latvia to meet the bright and bubbly Solvita. From her Etsy shop at she sells delightful handmade pinback buttons, greeting cards and rings for your hands and ears.

Hello, hello!

My name is Solvita, but you can call me Sole. ;)
I am a small town girl from Latvia. I live with my beloved Hubby in a nice little town called Valmiera. And here is my Day.

My day starts quite early (about 07:30), because I have regular day job from 09:00 to 17:00.

I am not having breakfast, because it is too early for me. I know, I know, not the healthiest way to start a day.
So sorry, Dear Grapefruit! You will have to wait till evening! :)

So, I do my hair, wash my teeth and about 08:40 o'clock, I am ready and out on the street.
With a sun in my back, I am on my way to work. It is 20 minutes walking.

Too bad, there is not much to see along this road. It is still winter here, lots of snow and, yes, lots of mud. It is road reconstruction on my street.

It is 09:00 and I am at my office-warehouse-What-Ever-it-is.
I work in a little Ophthalmology company. We buy and sell optical frames and make glasses for nice people. My job is to write invoices and pack orders and do other stuff..

Coffee is my first breakfast.

I check my Etsy and other Social sites. But there isn't much time to chill, I have lots to do.

It is ~12:30 and somewhere between mountains of sunglasses and papers is my lunch from local Take-away. Looks bad, but tastes good. :))

So I spend all my days in these 4 walls building dream castles and dreaming about "quitting my day job".
(Those, who have a Etsy shop, will definitely understand me. :D :D He hee...)

My working day ends about 17:00. There is another 20 minutes walking and I am back home.
Today is my Lucky day. Hubby has made a delicious chilly-bean stew with minced meat. Mmmmmm... Yummmy!

Nope, beer is NOT for me. :))

After the supper and a little dessert it's time for crafting and creativity.

Todays project is, Greeting card + Gift.
I am trying something new. Who knows, maybe these Cards will make me a Millionaire. :))

A bit of packaging and taking photos.

...and that's it. Time flies fast and another day is over. It is almost midnight and my bed is calling me.
So, Bye bye!
