My lil Sister

Is now a Sister Missionary.  It was Just last weekend I got to spend some sweet time with her and my parents before she left for her mission to San Bernardino, CA.  She will be a missionary for 18 months for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  

I am so proud of her for making this commitment and really happy she will be staying state-side.  California is lucky to be getting someone as hard-working and kind as Carlee.  Miss her already! 

I also had a craft show at HighlandsRanch High School and was really happy to have so many helpers!!  My mom, dad, and carlee all pitched in to help me unload, set up, and bring me food :)

they are pretty great :)

I also saw lots of familiar faces and made some new craft show friends, thanks to everyone for your loyal support and encouragement!! It means the world to me!

Jared just completed the busiest week of work, probably ever.  He had conferences for all of his homeroom kids afterschool on Mon. Wed. Fri. - 2 away basketball games (one in Estes Park and one in Ault) on Tues. Thurs. and also started tutoring on his free block.  Sheeesh.  He has a well deserved holiday week off!  and he still managed to keep his wife happy and feeling loved :)

simply the best.

I just finished a holiday craft show in Windsor today, completing my first back-to-back show weekends!  It was a thrill and challenge and I am trying not to go totally nuts with all the work and work and work I am trying to get out on time. haha!  

 newest batch of holiday ornaments! gingerbread men

 (had a booth next to me with some creepy mannequin heads! hah)

It is such a blessing to have so many holiday shoppers and many opportunities to do shows and special orders for friends.  I will be so happy for a few days off for thanksgiving!!  really looking forward to it :)  and hope you are too!!

hugs and love

OH Baby!

time is a flying.  and this is the time of year it feels like there is less and less of it and there is no slowing down!  I got to help throw a baby shower for my friend Nicole last weekend - She is so adorably pregnant and it was a load of fun to celebrate her and the baby!

 I had way too much fun getting crafty!  I made cute little magnets and honey bear favors :)

 Nicole & Me aka
Lowski & Yellski

 this is not the best picture but I made baby boettcher (he's a Boy!) a football blankie with Huskers fabric, mostly because his daddy is a die hard fan. 

 what baby shower would be complete without cupcakes?!  haha
It is so exciting to see our friends pregnant and getting ready for their baby!!! 2 more months till he's here :)

I got to go watch Jared's home Game tonight, he has been conditioning his boys a lot the past couple of weeks!!  they looked like a completely different team running their offense really well and handling the ball much better.  They stomped the Ft. Lupton blue Devils and Jared was super happy after the game - He said they were doing exactly what they had done in practice, awesome!

I also got him a new "toy" for the yard, he has been playing a lot lately haha he mulched the yard like crazy last weekend and It look SO nice.... until the wind blew.  he will be back at is this weekend :)

I am happy to be extra busy working in the studio and ready for our first real Holiday Show this weekend down in Highlands Ranch.

Remember how I was trying to find a red glaze?  well I came up with one better.... PINK!!  just mixed a half batch and am so in love with how cute it is!  I am thinking of naming it "colorado rose" ... yes, no?  I turned my first little pink owl into a tea lovers gift set!  super excited for this weekend!  I will be running out booth during the day but also get to hang out with the fam & especially Carlee before she leaves on her mission next week!
just one more sleep ;)
hugs & love
