Phew, yesterday was a great day for me. Not only was it my Great-Grandfather’s 101st Birthday, it was also the day that I found out that my DIY Marquee Letters were featured on HGTV Canada’s site! My husband asked me if I knew that I was #2 on HGTV Canada’s list of The 36 Ultimate DIY Projects on the Internet! I though it was an April Fool’s joke at first, but when he sent me the link, I was overcome with happiness! What an honor to be recognized and featured. Thank you HGTV for making me so happy!
There are 36 fun DIY Projects on that list, so be sure to check them all out. Also, if you want my step-by-step instructions on my DIY Marquee Letters, click here, and make your own! Thanks for stopping by – I will float off on my Cloud 9, now…
Another wonderful Cookie Swap wrapped up today. I’m so thankful for all of the wonderful ladies in my life that make this event happen each year. We had a solid 12 participants this year, can you believe it?! Since there were so many, we decided to make a 1/2 dozen for each person, rather than a full dozen. That seemed to work out nicely. My mom was so sweet and surprised me with a cookie recipe book for my hostess gift. I’ve already started browsing through the pages in search of next years recipe. I can’t wait!
Now I’m going to go and eat one of every cookie, so if you’ll excuse me… haha!
Lately my mom and I have been feverishly working to prep for our October Craft Show. Since we thought we’d be moved into the new house before this show, we stored almost all of my crafting supplies in storage. I thought I would have a week or two to craft my heart out in the new house before unpacking everything else, but boy was I wrong. Recently we found out that our Closing date has been pushed to mid October (the 18th), so I had to go to plan B and dig out as many crafting supplies as possible and tote them to my dad’s house. I’m doing what I can with what I was able to find. We tried to keep all of my crafting supplies in a general area within one storage unit, but that’s not as easy as it sounds when things are packed ceiling-high. Nonetheless, its frantic but so much fun! I hope to see some of you at the show.
Saturday October 5th 9am-4pm
Adams County Fairgrounds – 9755 Henderson Road (same as 124th Ave.) Colorado
$2 admission (14 & under is FREE)
250 Booths in 2 Buildings
Food Provided by 4-H
… enough said. xo
How was your Mother’s Day Weekend? Mine was wonderful! My momma and I started it off strong with the Spring Horseshoe Market in Denver on Saturday. It was so busy and wonderful to see so many of you there. We didn’t get to take as many photos as we wanted to, but we were able to snap a few iPhone ones. We got caught in a strong 30-second wind and dust storm, but came out okay. Then the rain held off until 10 minutes after closing, then it was a down-pour. We came out okay with little damage to our things, but not all of the vendors can say the same. My mom was so smart and brought plastic sheets and shower curtains, and we moved everything to the center of the canopy, covered it with plastic and dropped the top of the canopy down to the ground and waited it out. Once the rain passed, we loaded up and headed home.
Then Sunday morning I called my momma to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day, then Ron and I drove down to Parker, CO to see the model of what our new home will look like. Then we met my mom and brother for some fabulous vegan food and Froyo. It was a lovely day! Such great company and lots of laughs. My mother is the strongest and most caring woman who I’ve ever known. I hope to be that strong and loving one day. There is never a day that goes by that she doesn’t tell us that she loves us. It means the world to me to have her as my mother. Mom, thank you for all that you are and all that you do. You are a blessing in my life and I wouldn’t be where I am without you. I love you to the moon and back. xoxo Reebies
The Mini Roblins are all sewn up and today I’ll be loading the Jeep. I’ve made a serious checklist to be sure that I pack everything that I need – or may need for tomorrow. Our set up time is 6:30am, so I have to make myself go to bed by 9pm. This is easier said than done, but I’ll try. In addition to these little fellas, I’ll have my Roblin Tees and onesies, Roblin Paintings, quilts, and headbands. My momma will have her lovely jewelry, soaps and dream catchers. I’m so excited!
I’ve stayed up late last night tagging and sewing up the mini Roblin’s for the Market this Saturday. Tonight I plan to stuff them and add the price tags. I just love making these little guys. Oh, did I mention that they will be a very Special Mother’s Day price?! heeheehee
These past couple of weeks have been super busy with getting my braces on, wisdom teeth pulled, selling our home and buying a new one, as well as prepping for this year’s Spring Horseshoe Market! Phew. I’ve been squeezing my craft time into every minute possible. I’ve been making up a storm, actually. I’m so excited to share my latest product – mini stuffed Roblins! They’re different from the larger ones that I’ve been making and I think they’re perfect for your young ones. They’re smaller for kids to hold and super soft. This is just a sneak peek, but I’ll be selling them at the Market this Saturday and then add them to the shop later next week. I can’t wait!
I hope to see many of you at this years Spring Horseshoe Market! If you’ve never been, it’s a one day, outdoor craft/antique/food market this Saturday! It’s the perfect thing to take your mom too or to find a last-minute gift for her. Click here for a map and more info. See you there!
