The Last Few Weeks

The last few weeks have been busy! I've been catching up with friends and getting ready for the craft show. I'm taking a week of from my day job next week and my husband and I are going to visit his parents in Michigan. I'm hoping to find some relaxation there! I'm the type of person that doesn't fully relax unless I'm on vacation. Otherwise I feel like I constantly should be doing something around the house, for the shop, making plans with friends, etc.

Here are a few photos from the events these past few weeks...

One of my very best friends is getting married in September and we had a girls night out (just dinner and reminiscing, nothing too crazy!) and her bridal shower the following day. Her aunties put on a darling shower with mimosas, a choice of salads and sandwiches, cake and the most adorable cookies. I'm not sure where they got them, but aren't they almost too cute to eat? I did eat mine :) The coolest gift she got (in my opinion) was a hula hoop. One of her friends makes them and I'm not sure if she sells them online, but I will find out and let you know.

And this past weekend we had the craft show in Grand Rapids...

Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and we had rain off and on the entire day. So the pictures have a blue tint to them from the canopy. As always, we met some talented people. We even met another shop that is run by a mother-daughter team! It was so much fun to talk with them and hear their stories of how they started and how they work together. Go visit their online shop heim-made. Their soap is fabulous! They suggested to get some other mother-daughter shops together and do a show, wouldn't that be fun?

I must say I have a tremendous amount of respect for people who do shows, especially the outdoor ones. It's not easy to set up a booth or a canopy. My muscles are still recovering. In the meantime I'm working on taking pictures for some new items in the shop, so look for those this week! I hope you are enjoying the last part of July!


  1. Sorry it was rainy! The apron on the dressform is awesome. I'd have snatched it up right away! Then I think I would have run to my car, I hate rain. hehehe

  2. yummy salad! I know what you mean about vacationing...i can NEVER fully relax without getting away.
