My online time the couple of months has been greatly limited, due to a three main things.
1. The daily joys and challenges of being a wife, mother, household-keeper, laundress, chef, grounds-keeper, teacher-of-how-children-should-get-along [to one's own children]…
2. The weekly involvement in a Bible Study with four girls from our church’s youth group. I LOVE LOVE this… even though finding the time to studying amidst #1 can be challenging some weeks.
3. The preparation for My Faire Lady!
This was a brainstorm that happened upon me a few months ago – the idea to have a little booth at a local festival, exhibiting a few little things that are homemade. Cute homemade.

So, after talking to 2 wonderfully talented friends in the area, the three of us decided to try to make a go of our idea! I am sooo excited to be doing this with Linda and Veronica – both amazing seamstresses and talented women!

We are all having our own little niche, certain things that each of us are doing, and then we’re overlapping a bit too, in what we’re doing. Our little things include [this is all of us, not just me]: window panels, shoulder bags, diaper clutches, pacifier ribbon holder, burp cloths, clip boards, hair flowers and pretties…
[whoever knew there is so much COOL fabric out there. i want to start sewing for my girls next!]
[ruffled half-apron, in the making. Can you tell I'm in love with anything ruffly (??) right now? ]
[Zoe, age three. Loving to be involved, and is constantly saying, "I want to WATCH you..."
So, in a little more than a week, we will be full-swing into
"My Faire Lady -
an eclectic assortment of things beautiful, vintage, and feminine."

[hair flowers. these are called 'lollipop flowers' - i googled them on youtube to learn how to make them]
It’s either going to be a grand success, OR I will have five years worth of gifts left over!! A little nervous about that.
So, these are just a few of the many things that will be [attemping to be] sold at our little county festival! If you’re local, be sure to come and check us out!
Happy weekend to you!
