What I {Will Catch You Up} On Today

It's been a while.

I'm sorry.

Here goes...

So as I have been whining about for several weeks rachel did. was at its first craft show!
A while back I mentioned some thrift store shopping I had done and some of the great things I found.

You may remember these?


Well I had to make them a little more rachel did.

So here's what I did...


Pulled out the thingies


Shook up the paint


And started painting


And then it was time for the show.  


There was a contest for best display.


I didn't win.


But if you ask me


I was robbed!


But I may be a little biased...


I even made little tags.  Don't they look profesh???


This picture literally stopped people in their tracks.  I actually think Mia was the most successful person at the craft show.  Her head probably grew two sizes with all the compliments she got.


Michelle came up with the idea for the pom pom flowers


They're my favesies.

And really easy to make!


We found these things called Thickers for the lettering



So overall I'd say the show was a success.  I learned a few things, met some cool people, and got some really positive feedback.   I won't do another until the fall cause baby hats will most likely sell better then.  And frankly, I'm a little tired of making stuff! 

I think I have crochet elbow.

I will have a bunch of new stuff in the shop very soon so be on the lookout!

Post Script- I forgot to mention the obscene amounts of rain we had on Saturday.  So that kinda stunk.  
Oh and James of course brought his video camera...

Oh and in cuteness news Mia figured out how to clap! Enjoy.

Yeah yeah yeah... I forgot to turn the camera...it was a moment! No time for thinking!  And I have no idea how this outfit happened.  It just did.

  1. 2 things:
    1. Cuteness news made my day.
    2. I loved your use of favesies

  2. Olivia. Everything I do, I do it for you.

  3. did you sell a lot? everything looks so amazing!
    p.s. i want a fresh headband that's awesome.
    p.p.s. i am seriously still on the lookout for something obscene to send you through the mail, but koreans are bit more conservative than say... the japanese (oh i totally went there). but i am definitely going to bring you and your ward something ridiculous to look at/wear when we have a lunch date (think mid-july)... that is when i pass through the atl on my way to cali. pencil me in, and get my awesome fresh band ready.
