Boutique Madness

Last week I participated in my first boutique, Carrie, the lady who runs it is super sweet and so full of information. I just love her and it is amazing what she can do with a rented space. It was certainly a new adventure as I was dropping off my jewelry I was feeling well a tad out of place and so unorganized compared to the other jewelers, but thanks to all of the super nice people I have learned some new tricks and I sold some stuff.

So now I am getting ready for the next boutique that Carrie is doing, the Holly Day Boutiques, so if any of you guys are new to this or have done it before she is having some other boutiques this spring so check out her website and let her know the I sent you there. Remember she is super nice and very informative. Otherwise if your in Minnesota go check out the boutique their are fabulous artists and the prices are great, just check out the website for the address it starts November 1st. I can't wait to do a little more shopping myself!

Hope every one is well out there and hopefully I can get my but in gear and start posting more, I've even fallen behind keeping up with all of my fabulous bloggers out there.

Oh and in other news I am participating in the Sweet Goodness Swaps, Sister Holiday Swaps and we just had our first swap and my lovely partner Sarah sent me the most adorable little bag she made filled with chocolatey goodness. Gotta love a girl that send you chocolate. As usual I am having some camera difficulties, I think i need a new battery pack, I don't think it is me after all.

Anyways back to doing some inventory for the boutique, have a great week you guys.

Happy Birthday to ME

Yes today is my birthday, and thanks for this awful cold that I came down with last week it has been a less than festive weekend. But I suppose I will make it, my OH got me the coolest cake decorating kit and a cupcake carrier. I have been eyeballing both of these for a long time and I was super excited to get them. Other than that it has been a very low key day, just hanging out and wearing the Tiara. So here is to me another year older and another year craftier!

Happy Birthday Sis

Today is my lovely sister Jewel's Birthday so Happy Birthday Sis. She is nine years and 1 day older than me and just about the best sister a girl could ever have. I'm must admit I was a stinker when we were younger and she told me once at 18 that she didn't like me much as a child. Understandable due to the fact that we are nine years about and well I was a stinker. i think I broke alot of her posses ions and snooped a ton through her room.

For instance, I call her Jewel, her name is Julie, not really a stretch but I came across this name as a child snooping through her drawers and this boy that apparently had a mad crush on my sister used to call her that. Well I started calling her that because it used to annoy her to bits. Eventually it stuck and now she doesn't mind it in the least, because well she is a jewel.

I'm not sure if she knows this but I always wanted to be like her, and I always looked up to her as a child. She had the huge 80's hair that always looked great and she could make the best chocolate chip cookies and brownies. She used to babysit me and she was so cool that she would let me dress up in her cool clothes and do my make-up. She as just the coolest older sister any girl could have. she taught me how to ride a horse, make fabulous deserts, and bought me my first walkman, rainbow bright walkman, by the way. She taught me so many valuable things and is so dear to me.

She is an incrediable mother and artist and she has always been behind me encouraging me and well making sure I had enough well balanced meals in college. She is a fabulous cook, so when I was in college and my parents lived out of state I used to go visit her, she would always come and pick me up and then send me home with enough dinners until the next time I saw her. She has always just been the sweetest thing to me and so today I would like to wish her a birthday full of bright candles and lots of pretty packages, and lots of cake with zero calories of course. Well it is her birthday, didn't you know that on your birthday cake has no calories!

She is just the coolest mother and sister, full of so much knowledge and love.
So Happy birthday sis and thank you for everythign you are the best sis in the world and thanks for helping mold me into the gal I am today. I love you lots and I just want you to know how special you really are to me!

So make a wish, a really good one and blow out those candles!
