  • I’ve gone all day thinking it was Wednesday what a welcome surprise that I’m that much closer to the weekend. (more…)

  • The thunderstorms –  we’ve been having here in the Pacific Northwest.  I’m a native and have missed the clouds and rain.  A little thunder and lightening have been a bonus.
  • Little girls who take long naps.
  • Independent shops that let me keep my dollar local – I’m learning it’s a lot of hard work but great for the local economy and community.
  • Monthly Art walks.  Hopefully your town/city has one.
  • Working REALLY hard at the gym but feeling sooooo good afterwards!
  • Learning.  I never want to stop learning…

… and all those bad study habits came back like it was yesterday when it’s been more like 10 years (or more).  I applied to show at Urban Craft Uprising’s Holiday show, which is juried.  Yay me!  So exciting.

The application process reminded me a bit of those short answer questions you had in high school and college. Then there was the technical side of uploading pictures, fee paying online – it was like the SATs all over again.  I broke out into a cold sweat at one point and needed to text my husband who’s travelling for work this week about file memory and which was largerMB or KB?  Yeah, that’s how technically un-savvy I am and one of the reasons why I need to keep a happy marriage!

The deadline was last night at midnight and guess who  turned their application in about two hours before the deadline?

Guilty.

In the mean time I’ve been doing the weekend market in Coupeville, WA and am super proud to say that two of my skirts made the cut for the First Day of School outfit for a customer and she came back looking for more.

One of “the chosen”.

The other skirt is actually behind this is one in a navy blue with super cute vintage yellow buttons.  I loved the purple and mustardy color combo on this one.  I think I might be losing my cred as whenever someone starts looking at the skirts I tell them how “THAT one is my favorite” but then I start saying that about every single skirt.  It’s true though is the thing…

Love what you do.

An inadvertent discovery today but one I think I may continue to investigate. (more…)

I know people who never ever buy anything used.

Anything.  They think it bad juju or something.

  1. Living on an island you would think I would be used to the wind.  Putting up the 10×10 tent/awning/gazebo thingee puts you at risk of doing a Mary Poppins and get carried off into the wind.  I will first stake down the frame then attach the roof before raising it.  Good-ness. (more…)

If I didn’t have kids I probably wouldn’t read children’s stories.  Pre-kids it just never occurred to me to wander into the children’s section of the library have a look see.
