What a weekend!

It has been crazy here the last few days.

First my girls had an interesting experience on their way home from volleyball the other night.  It was a bit stormy and as they were driving along the road a tree almost fell on them. It literally landed directly behind our car, in between the girls and their Dad and the car that was behind them.

Needless it say, it scared them a bit. My 6 year old arrived home and immediately felt the need to explain it visually for me...

I love that she expresses herself artistically at only 6 years old, lol.  The journaling is pretty good too. Can you read it? ;)

And on Friday night we had our school carnival. I made the girls costumes this year and I will show you my little ones because it turned out darn cute.  Now my older daughter's costume, I'm not so proud of, lol. It needs more work before trick or treating tomorrow. ;)  I'll show you after Halloween, lol.

And my beautiful older daughter turned 12 on Saturday.  And of course we celebrated with a party and then she was allowed to have just a couple people spend the night afterwards.  I can't believe she's almost a teenager. Yikes!  (And can you believe I forgot to take my camera to the roller rink?)

A special note for my customers:

And during all this  I have decided that I will no longer sell my designs at 9th & Bloom.  I don't want to talk negatively about 9th & Bloom, because I have truly enjoyed my year with all the amazing designers that also sold at 9th & Bloom.  And Lizzy Reiber is truly a wonderful woman and great store administrator/ manager, and I have nothing but respect for Lizzy.  But due to some recent discoveries I have decided that 9th is no longer suitable for me to call home.  I will keep you updated though on where you will be able to purchase my designs in the future.

But don't worry,  your favorite kits (such as these) will be back soon:

Thank you for your loyal support! :)
