Under the Weather?

Our family has been hit particularly hard this Fall with various viruses and illnesses.  About a month ago, 3 of the 5 of us in our family had the H1N1 virus and this last week we all have shared a very nasty stomach bug which has left us all without much energy and a few pounds lighter.  I suppose with one child in public schools, another in pre-school, and the fact that we get never get a full-night's sleep as the baby gets up 2-3 times a night, we're just a pretty run-down lot that has been hit on all sides recently.  Luckily, Summer (4 months old) has been able to escape the H1N1 and had just a day of the stomach virus as she has been our main concern.  I suppose there is no better time in the year to hunker down, rest, relax, and focus on getting better.  I hope all of you and your families stay healthy and for those of you who are under the weather like us, I hope this virtual chicken soup makes you feel a bit better!

The Last Show for the Season

I had a great time at the Vintage Treasures Market at the Nine Mile Falls Elementary School yesterday.  I teamed up with Rustic Angel, A Little Something, and Jessica Cobb to sell our "wares" for our last show until next spring.  On one hand, it will be nice to slow down a little and have to some time to create while being holed up in the house during the winter months, but I absolutely love the shows as I get to meet the customers and all the other wonderful creative people out there!  It was amazing how many people that recognized Sophia's from the Farm Chicks show!  It really meant a lot to me since I wasn't able to participate in many shows after having the baby this past summer.  I love re-connecting with people and it never ceases to amaze me how small the world really is - or maybe how small Spokane really is!  I also had the chance to talk to quite a few of the incredible vendors there including Jamie from The Bizi Shop (she's such a sweetie!), Jennifer from Unexpected Neccessities, and Shari from Southern Charm.  Shari was gracious enough to give some tips on glass pendant making.  Her jewelry is out of this world and as I've just started experimenting with jewelry-making, I was a sponge.  It is always so nice to talk to others that have the same hobby and share experiences with one another.

Vintage Finds and Handmade Treasures Market

I'm excited to be a part of the Nine Mile Falls Vintage Finds and Handmade Treasures Market this Saturday!  The show is organized by Jennifer and Kathy Walker, Unexpected Necessities
This mother and daughter team are so sweet!  I first met these gals when several of my neighbors and I were having yard sales and they stopped by.  I was working on a piece of furniture in my driveway with my garage door open and, of course, it was full of my "junk".  They had commented that their garages were in a similar state and we quickly learned that we were both vendors at the local Farm Chicks Show and share the same passion for "junkin".  Jennifer came to our Angel's Attic Show and invited us to attend their event this Saturday.  Rustic Angel, A Little Something, Sophia's, and Jessica Cobb will all be sharing a large booth together and we are excited to be able to do another show together before winter sets in.  Hope to see you all there!
