our summer adventure begins!

man does summer feel goooood!  jared and i have been loving our days in the studio, it doesn't really get any better!  going in mid morning and working into the afternoon with 711 runs, hackie-sak sessions, and even a little skate boarding in windsor on thursday.  I tagged along to do some sunbathing and reading on my day off from work!!  I have been lucky enough to fit in some studio time and leisure around my shifts :)

felt good to load up almost a full cart for a bisque!  between brad, jared, and i we will be packing it to the brim, yey!

jared and brad have also continued collaborations; combining jared's mugs and brad's monster feet... creative boys

and i am almost done making a dinner set!  it has been quite a bit of work, making 10 of everything to get a matching set of 6, but practice is always good :)  

this week is going to be full of packing and getting ready for our move to the Severance house!  woo!  we are going to go check it out again tomorrow and i can't wait!  

happy weekend everyone hugs and love xoxo

graduation festivities!

i have been wanting to get on and blog all of our fantastic graduation pics for a while now but i have had a really annoying sickness for almost a week.  thank goodness i am finally on meds and starting to see good health in my future... it's about time!  

we kicked off graduation celebrations on friday afternoon down in arvada with the butler fam.  We had a delicious bbq!!! and even more delicious dessert...
lynn picked out a sweet sweet chocolat ice cream cake, it was amazing!!  thank you lynn!
so so gooood!!

we had a fantastic night with everyone, we love you guys!!

ceremony was saturday morning at nottingham stadium.  it was sunny with clear skies, we lucked out!!  and were so happy that nobody had to sit through graduation in crummy weather :)

our art buddies!!  when we were "lining-up" in the gymnasium someone heard that order didn't matter... so we decided to sit together and ignore alphabetical instructions!  haha luckily we didn't look like silly art majors when our names got called.  we all had name cards that we handed to the announcer as we walked onto the stage.  no big deal.  annnnnd i got to sit between jared and michelle :) i was very happy!
it was quite the ceremony, over 1400 names!! and you can imagine the stadium packed with peeps!  we met my fam at the olive garden after a couple quick pics:

(love this one of david and jared)

it was so good to see everyone!!  specially gma and gpa, it has been a whole year and i was so happy they came :)
and everyone one else, of course, we felt a lot of love and support!! love you guys!

now it is summer time! yey!  i am still waiting to enjoy my time off from classes, and back to working more shifts at kenny's... jared has been helping mike with some studio projects and taking care of me in my sickness.  he is a sweetheart. 

hopefully i will be blogging a little more with my new abundance of free time, i love summer!!
hugs and love
