A fun weekend in September

wow! what a great weekend I just had.
The only problem with jam-packed fun weekends is that they pass too quickly.

Friday night Sweetie and I met up with Jen of Starving Artist Bazaar and her friend for a night out in the Botanical Garden here in Phoenix.
The night was just beautiful!

This plant is made of glass tubes and lit from inside.

The reason for the evening in the Botanical Garden?

Polka Bands....

German Food and Beer...

and Lederhosen!


Saturday we spent the afternoon celebrating the 10th birthday of a very special girl!

Everybody was hanging out in the pool..
There were presents and pinata...and Birthday cake!
Happy Birthday Renee!
We love you girlie!

Autumn is here!!

Hello all!

September has been a blur.

I spent 4 amazing days in Chicago and its kept me busy all month!
First on the agenda was the Renegade Craft Show.
how much fun was that???
were you there?
Tell me what who you saw and what you got!
Was so great to be in Wicker Park during a beautiful weekend.
So many people out and about shopping and enjoying the weather.
Even the dogs were out in force.
This lady was the belle of the ball in her lovely grey and pink smock.

I did not get a chance to take a pic but I got to catch up with my craft show buddies Casey and Kelly of Biggs and Featherbelle.So amazing to get to catch up with them.
Check them out for all your soap and bath needs.
Their lipbalm is da balm!
lol see what I did there?
I crack myself up!

The second two days was spent with my good buddy Jen of Starving Artist Bazaar hanging out in the Chicago Area.

We hit many thrift and antique shops where I scored many many cool pieces that will be used in new Blossom Shop creations.

The first of which are the new Hairclips!
They are fun and unique and totally vintage and totally Blossom Shop.
They are currently listed on Etsy, Art Garage Sale, PaperNStitch, and Art Fire.
Pick your favorite shopping venue and go check them out!

Good food was in abundance as well.
Chicago deep dish pizza at Lou Malnati's, asian at Joy Yee, bakery goodies at Rolf's and so many other yummy places.

Big thanks to the Syfu's in Skokie for their hospitality!

Many more new pieces to make for Blossom Shop.
Gotta get ready for the holidays!

So many new ideas in my brain and in my sketch pad.
Yes, I have started to sketch my designs.
I find I dream about jewelry and think of new designs in the shower, doing laundry, vegging out in front of the tv.
The brain is getting older so I have to draw them out now.
I laugh at my drawings but the finished products are looking amazing!

Have a great day everybody!
