The Christmas Party was fun!

I was pretty busy so I didn't take that many pictures, but here are a couple...

Also I got to up to WinterPark in Colorado for a nice day of skiing with Greg, my dad and my cousin Abbby.

My Dad

(I forgot to give my dad a blog post last year, he never even complained about it...
I'm sorry and here it is now!)

Is pretty great.
You would probably know that if you've met him. His friends and family have hailed him as the best man they know, the true example of what a man should be, an excellent father etc.
I of course agree with all of these reviews and I know that I am a lucky girl.
Sometimes he does little things that prove to me just how much we are loved, like stocks the fridge with Dr. Peppers just in case his girls are home. I know he would do anything I needed him to, and loves me a lot. Last May when I came in the house with my foot trailing blood and feeling quite scared and nervous, my brother was taking care of me and as we were deciding to head to the doctor to get some stitches my dad was looking a little bewildered and came and hugged me and said "I would go with you but I think I might start to cry", and then he welled up a little bit.
I guess a lot of people don't expect that from him, but he is kind of a softie, and I really love that, and I really can't wait to watch him with his grand babies,
it's gonna be so much fun!

It is also really fun to have a very handsome dad, never met a dad better lookin' than mine!
I love you Dad :)
Happy 52nd birthday!

Here it is again

Styled in a totally different way! Except for the pop of blue...

I made this today

I'm loving this houndstooth print

A taste

of what we enjoyed last night. Ray was so good! I have seen him once before at ACL and loved him, and last night was even better. The only disappointment was that we had to stay seated, not letting me groove to my fullest potential. He was with the band he did his latest CD with, The Pariah Dogs. I was also so excited last night because to my surprise (not listed on the ticket) this group called the Secret Sisters opened and I just heard them do a little live show on NPR and loved it. They are two girls with beautiful voices and sing with an oldie sounding style.

It just oozes out of him...

Baby crafts!
Been wanting to try my hand at some cute baby stuff for a while now and after a baby shower this weekend and more babies today my inspiration overwhelmed me! So I am taking these items up to the school and seeing if any one is interested... Are you interested?

Hot cake plates!

I have now sold 8 of these up at the Montessori school, it's so nice of them to let me have a little display set up...

Trim usage

kinda hard to see the real beauty of this trim here, but I made a cute belt out of the trim I got last week at Ellen's.

The Craft Show

Although my mom, aunt and I would not describe the craft show as a raving success, we enjoyed ourselves and were able to sell some of our things. I probably sold about 9 cake plates, and that was enough to pay for what it cost me to make all my cake plates, so that's pretty good.
mostly we had fun complimenting each other on what amazing products we have.
these were the cute book-lettes Soo Soo made
I did have help from family in offloading some of my merchandise, thanks Tina!
The booth!
my mom's awesome clocks
all my plates!
