guess who's getting all grown up...

Art Haus!  we are celebrating our 5th Anniversary of having the Etsy shop and it feels so so good.
I am full of emotions.
Happy to be celebrating this anniversary, or Birthday as i'm calling it!
Proud to have been dedicated to growing the shop, it isn't always easy...
Lucky to have amazingly loyal customers that have supported us over the years!
and Thankful for the support and love of family friends and community that have been in our corner rooting for Art Haus since day 1!!!

To celebrate we are throwing an "Etsy Party" through the end of the month (even though our official birthday is Feb 28th)

We want everyone to use the coupon code 'HAPPY5' for $5 off your order

and every order made during our Birthday party will be entered to win a 2 month Clay Club subscription, Hooray!

Hopefully you got to share...

Some love with your favorite people this weekend! I know valentines is one of the most hallmarky commercial holidays but I truly believe in getting in touch with your sensitive side and telling people you love them! Even for a cheesey holiday... 
My weekend started with a galentines sleepover - a sweet movie night, popcorn for dinner, brunch at blue sky cafe, and a trip to Arvada's sweetest old town bakery.  What is galentine's you ask?! Only the best day of the year!  It's ladies celebrating ladies, breakfast style - it's actually not an official national holiday, YET! I am spreading the word as much as possible. I have a dream that one day every lady will get to celebrate Galentines! 
It is based off one of mine and Lynn's favorite tv shows - Parks and Rec - we love you Leslie knope!

Friday and Saturday I worked at the restaraunt, and in the words of my mother - I got to be a part of making other people's night special!  It was the busiest we have ever been, a record night for Kenny's steakhouse and I'm so. Glad. It's. Over. 
Sunday was a lazy day with jared - going to our new favorite cinema downtown, making cookies, and lounging around.  Oh, Sundays! 
And here's a little peek at the cuteness that came out of the kiln on Sunday
Pink and hearts and ladybugs and lace all good things!!

Girls basketball

Is in full swing!  I got to watch Jared's 7th grade girls game Vs. Ft. Lupton on Wednesday night - they had an impressive first half shut out and didn't let the other team score a single basket!! 

Their motto this season is "it's not about how good you are, it's about how hard you work" and it's pretty obvious they are working hard each practice and looking better each game - They won the game with 24 points.  I told Jared all he has to teach Them is how to love basketball and have fun, but a win is always nice too :)

Clay Club

Is my first project for the new year!  I dreamed up this idea to have a monthly clay subscription that brings a unique piece of pottery right to your doorstep every month!  okay... it was dreamed up after someone got me a movie watchers club for my birthday :)  the concept is genius and something that I am so excited to have ready to share and ship!  

Every month will be designed around a theme and include a unique ceramic piece with a creative/fun/inspirational message.  I am so excited to have this project for myself too - It will be keeping me on my creative toes to bring every subscriber and gift receiver a very special thoughtful package!   It's not just a pretty wrapped piece of art, it's handmade with a whole lotta heart!
