Man, the days keep passing at lightning speed! I’m not even sure where the last week went, but here we are.
First off, I had a blast at my first craft show! It was really fun to set up my space and have people check out my stuff – and even more fun when they would buy my little creations! I wasn’t sure if I’d like the whole craft show scene, but it turned out to be really fun. Thanks to everyone who came out to support me! I’m even thinking about hitting up another show this season, we’ll see. Here’s a shot of my table.
Getting ready for this thing was quite a task. I am pretty sure that this was the most challenging time to take on such a thing in Luke’s development thus far. He’s growing like crazy and learning new things every day, which is so fun to see. He has so much energy and enthusiasm that he’s not exactly at a stage where I can work on my crafts with him, so any crafting needed to happen during his sleeping hours or when a grandparent was watching him. It’s a balancing act, and I am absolutely loving this season of life, so I wouldn’t change a thing. (Well, if I could add extra sleep hours in, that would be amazing….)
I still have tons of ideas to work on, so I’m excited to keep crafting and looking for more opportunities to sell my creations. I’m still in the process of spiffing up my etsy shop, but I’ve already made a sale, so that’s pretty rad. I’m psyched to get more items up for sale in it soon too!
I realized I never put up a Halloween photo of Luke in all the hustle and bustle of getting ready for the show. When my mom and I stumbled upon a $5 raccoon costume a month ago, I decided that was reason enough not to make Luke’s costume this year – love raccoons, love a good deal. And that was a wise choice, seeing as Luke came down with a cold on Halloween so we didn’t really do any trick or treating or parties. We did head over to Evantide Photography for their annual Halloween kids’ photo shoot to raise money for the local homeless shelter. I love seeing other kids’ costumes, and my fave was a homemade pinata costume – it was amazing! Ask Ian, I’m still talking about it.
Anyways, back to our little raccoon. We weren’t sure if he’d even stand still for a shot, but he stood there looking confused as to what was going on. Then he spotted his little friend Grant, and Grant’s dad Aaron, who was taking the photos. So we got a little smile after all.
He’s grown so much since he was a little owl last year, huh?! I miss all that baby chubbiness!
Okay, that’s all I’ve got for now. I am *hoping* to be back for ten on ten tomorrow, but the day involves a home improvement project and an afternoon with friends, so we’ll see. Happy weekend!
