I am SO behind on blogging. And just feeling absent. But really, I'm okay with that. There are so many other things to focus on right now. I do, however, miss catching up on some of my favorite blogs to read. Some day when I'm lying on the beach somewhere, I'll get all caught up, right??
My job has changed/expanded a bit from simply writing for our clients to also writing DIY tutorials each week. I had mixed thoughts about this, initially, but it's been fun. And I've actually completed more Pinterest projects in the past month than the past year! Not all are projects I would normally have done on my own, but maybe some time I'll share some of them here.
Evie is going to be an owl for Halloween! She totally has the "Hooo hooo" part down. :) I made her costume and still need to figure out some sort of mask/headgear for her to wear. More pictures to come!
I am loving and craving coffee and warm drinks all.day.long. I had given it up for a while, but while in Chicago and with this cooler weather, I got sucked right back in. If a salted caramel latte is wrong, I don't want to be right.
I am up to my eyeballs in last minute projects and finishing details for Vintage Market Days: A Holiday Affair, which is in 2 short weeks! We are beyond excited about it. It's going to be so much bigger and better than the June event (which was awesome but brutally hot). I can't wait! I've even started setting my alarm to try to get up early and get a few things done in the morning before Evie gets up. If you know me at all (and how much I love my sleep), that should say something. I hope to see some of you there! It won't disappoint.
And because of all my last-minute painting, sewing, etc.. this is why I don't ever bother with manicures. Super cute, eh?
Groupon is offering a great deal right now- $10 for an 8x8 Shutterfly book. I haven't made any photo books lately, but I love to do them as Christmas gifts.
I've been itching to knit or crochet something for a while now. I'm thinking Evie will need some new, cute winter hats! I did finally give in and start crocheting some baby booties after seeing little Hattie sporting some. I've had to tweak my pattern a bit and still need to find cute buttons. But I'm hoping to get a few pairs done to sell at VMD!
I am so seriously behind on planning Evie's birthday party, which is just a month away! We finally settled on the date and I HAVE to start planning. I don't think I'm going to do anything elaborate, but my girl loves her some Mickey Mouse, so I think I'll have to incorporate that somehow. I'm just not huge on themes, so I'll have to figure it out. When my brother turned 2, he had a Mickey Mouse party, complete with a Mickey head pinata that my mom made herself! I just remember some picture of his tiny little self swinging a bat at Mickey's head in the backyard. We briefly talked about doing that, but something seems a little off to me about bashing Mickey's head in. I don't think my sensitive girl would be on board for that. :)
We went to the pumpkin patch, oh, two weeks ago, and I just edited some of the pics. So I'll be sharing those soon! Evie was hilarious and loved every minute of it.
I just saw this little knit cowl on Pinterest. GAH! I'm dying of the cuteness! See!? This is why I need to knit! Evie must have one!
