Fiiiinally

I'm SO excited to announce that I will be having a booth at my friend Heather Kent's Craft Fair on Saturday November 6th. Check out the facebook event here.

It's still a little over a month away but I've been working away at getting all of my stuff ready for purchase and putting together a cute and eye catching table/booth. My roommate has been helping me with ideas and even going to craft fairs and flea markets with me. I'm so excited. This is going to be my first craft fair. Heather' asked me to do a craft fair awhile back but I just didn't feel my product to be 100% ready. I'm pretty type A and I either do things 100% or not at all. So, I decided to hold off and, lucky for me, Heather decided to have another craft fair and I'm honored to be asked to join again! :)

I've made several new items that I'm going to be sharing soon and I want to share some photos of my potential table set-up for the fair to possibly get some feedback.

Ideally I'd like to change my blog up a bit first and make it a little more functional but stay tuned, a lot of exciting things are in the works! :)

Four MONTHS?!

So, as you can tell I havn't updated the blog in over four months. I'm so disaapointed with myself but I DO have my reasons.

I have been SUPER busy recently. I started working at my parents office, along with my job at the bar AND babysitting my cousin twice a week AND making baby clothes AND since the last time I wrote Danica and I moved! It has left me just enough time to do some facebooking and tweeting but not much to really sit and do some decent blogging.

Another reason I've kept away from the blog front is because I have been camera-less :( I have had pretty terrible camera luck in recent months. First, I had my camera stolen at a friends birthday party at a club, being strapped for cash I bought a hundred dollar replacment camera that I lost the charging cord for I guess during the move. Buying a new one pretty much cost the same as the camera so I didn't want to do that. My Canon Rebel SLR has been acting up so I haven't been able to use that either. Long story short... well.. not really at this point, I got a new camera!



It's waterproof, dust proof, shock proof AND freeze proof! If you know anything about me, I'm not real "outdoorsy" but I figured having a durable camera sure couldn't hurt.

Some more exciting news: Since the move, I relocated my "office" to our new place! We have a MASSIVE garage so I packed up all of my "craft room" from my parents garage and hauled it over to its new home. (photos to follow)

Here are some of the pieces that I've created since my last post. Bare with me, all of these are from my phone and for some reason the sizing and placement is a little weird but.. you get the idea.

These are my new favs. I've recently become a huge fan of making what are called "yo-yo's" which I put on the onesies. The buttons that you see are actually faux buttons made of felt.
