Craft Show season has begun

it is officially here!  and I can't tell you how happy it is making me :)  I had so much anticipation in the weeks leading up to our big opener at the Arts Picnic, and it is such a good feeling to be back showing the public what we love to do.  We could not have had a better First show of the season, and for that I am so thankful to our family, friends, and fans that came out to support us!  We love Greeley and all the amazing creatives and art fans that dwell there!!

Jared did throwing demos on Saturday - he didn't splash too many on-lookers!  And he had a bunch of students come out to see him, which was very cute :)  We are getting REAL in the studio busting out some more pieces for Art in the Park @ loveland in just a week n a half!!  I don't think either one of us expecting to sell some of our showcase items the first show, I love being Surprised :)  

Jared has been busy taking care of a lot of stuff around the house.. we had a cracked spigot in the backyard that was leaking water.  He did a full replacement on it all by himself!!  I was so proud of his plumbing abilities and DIY skills - after about 6 trips to the hardware store :) He also had to change a spare tire on my car that went flat on sunday, of course.  When we needed my car to load up after the show.  Crazy how craft shows always seems to come with car problems for us.  last year it was my window being blown out on the highway... just crazy i tell ya.  

I also had a really good b-day a couple weeks ago :) 

  IT seemed like a week long birthday with celebrating with my family, getting spoiled by jared, and going to denver to enjoy lynn's birhtday treat... She got us tickets to see comedian Aziz Ansari!!  He is one of mine and jared's favs.  It was sad to find out he rescheduled his show - it was so close to the Aroura theater shooting that he said it didn't seem right to come make jokes - so true.  We had a great time anyway and are still super excited to see him in a couple weeks!! 

My yoga challenge was finished on tuesday, and sadly I didn't reach 30 classes.  I had stuff stack up at the end of the month and I ended up being 4 classes short, Bummer!  as much as I wanted to accomplish it, I still feel pretty stoked about how many classes I was able to do.  I did more yoga this month than I have ever done period, and it is super exciting to see how much my practice and body have changed.  more than anything I think this challenge has motivated me to keep going as much as possible.  I have so much enthusiasm for class and the process is keeping me wanting more!  
this was my calendar @ the half way point.  Also an exciting part of the challenge was getting stickers for each class.  I love Stickers!! haha I think I might keep doing it, just stickering my planner for every time I go.  Stickers just make a person happy, doesn't matter how old you are I say :) 

happy August all!!
hugs & love

  1. Happy belated birthday - So glad your pieces are selling, but I can't believe that this is your first show of the season? Which season? summer? I guess that could be it's just that I'm so used to Texas that 'summer' really means beginning in March and ending in October.
