That's just what I feel like I should say after that pitch! Just kidding.

This is going to be a very short post. No pictures. Just one question, and it's an important one.
Who's going to the Farm Chicks Show?
I'm cooking up something special if I have enough readers who are going...so make sure and let me know!
Ok maybe just one picture...
Made by Sandy Hohf of Sweet Notions, and will be available in my Etsy this next week!

Saturday, after a big ol' bagel with cream cheese, I loaded up the last little bit of stuff and headed over to the market. We still had a few last minute things to do. We hung our banner, drove the truck out to the road for display and put on our cute aprons! Vanessa's mom made her some bloomers and wow...I really want a pair! They were SO cute!
We had an amazing photographer come out for an hour in the morning, her name is Jen Arterbury. If anyone in Montana is looking for an awesome photographer, look her up!

I considered using a serrated knife to cut the wood with but apparently that doesn't work so well? Hmm.
Hey, beavers use their teeth right? Maybe I should have gone that route.
Or maybe I can just learn to be patient.

I bought this old radio cabinet for next to nothing, and decided it needed a new purpose. Not that the whole radio thing wasn't cool but....my radio is now is literally like
3'' x 1 1/2''.

Happy Friday everyone! I thought I'd share a couple of things I've been working on over the past week. This would probably have taken normal people a few hours to do all of it, but hey...I'm slow.
And easily distracted...
Anyway...Here's the first thing I finished...what do you think?
I used some remnant fabric, and this awesome khaki colored denim. I think it turned out pretty cute! I have about a zillion more to make before next Saturday...yikes....
Oh, and if you're interested in purchasing one of these, they are 20.00! Just shoot me an email :)
Next up is another pillow (I know....you should see the puncture wounds on my hands. I don't sew. I literally have only sewn like 4 times. Thimbles don't fit on my fingers...and unless they make entire thimble GLOVES, its not going to help anyway.....)
That makes me picture a knight sewing...with an apron on and a glass of chardonnay...only he can't drink it because his mouth guard thing is in the way...
Note to self: Get more sleep and stop sewing until midnight...and stop eating cereal for dinner.
I used part of a really pretty vintage handkerchief, and made some ruffles and rosettes. I wouldn't be sad if this didn't sell....haha
Some more pretty little rosettes I'll make into a necklace....
Another pillow with a little ruffle detail at the bottom...
and a sign that I like to refer to as my illegitimate love child. I recklessly entered into a relationship with a paintbrush and not a thought as to where the letters would go...
Thus producing something that I love, but always look at as something I wish I would have thought about a little more before making haha. That's just wrong. I hope I didn't offend anyone hahaha.
Tanner suggested that I put an apostrophe between the 'cre' and the 'ek' just to close the gap that makes Lauren Hutton's look like a sliver...sorry Lauren. Here's a little closer look at my special child.
Vanessa and I took an evening this week to decorate her garage and to work on a couple joint projects. I just can't believe our market is 8 days away. I am so excited!
We hung burlap, windows, hydrangeas, chandeliers, and a few other special touches involving book pages and repurposed doilies...
And these beauties....well, they're just adorable.
You never know what you might find...
Well, Tanner and I are headed to Spokane for his birthday! We finally get cheaper car insurance, thanks honey! It's like a present for our budget! haha. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend....any fun plans?
