End Of Summer Fun

This week has been busy and fun.

Today was a warm one here in Buffalo. We were expected to tie the record for this date set back in 1877 of 87 degrees today. The kids enjoyed the sprinkler today. They were having such a fantastic time running through it and filling up squirt guns.

Lily was too funny today. She wanted to wear her hat that I had bought her for her first birthday. She was so proud of herself sitting in the chair and wearing it. It's too funny how she LOVES to be girly. Yesterday a friend of mine watched her and when we picked her up she was carrying around 4 purses and bags. It was too cute!

At the end of last week I was asked by a fellow FAM Team member, emcisaac, if I made my snowflakes in white. She wanted to buy them to put on Christmas cards for her family. I had never thought to make them all white before. I was afraid the little pieces I had place on them wouldn't show up. I made a set for her and they turned out fabulous! I am going to add the classic snowflakes shortly to my etsy shop. Also what a great idea to add them to the front of a handmade Christmas card!

I was asked to be a part of the Buffalo Indie Market this week. It was so exciting to wake up to an e-mail from a person that I don't know inviting me to take part in a monthly market for local independent artists at Pearl Street Grill & Brewery. I signed up to take part in the October, November and December shows. I have only done one craft show in the past and it wasn't the right venue for my creations. I'm a bit nervous and have lots of things to make, but I am very excited about doing it. My husband and I are going to check out the Sept one, can't wait to see what it's going to be like. I just have to remember to breath, relax and make lots of lists.

I also have another pretty exciting thing happen to me this week. I was accepted into Lollishops! LolliShops is a juried, online selling venue for talented artists, collectors of vintage and art supply vendors that will be opening before Christmas. LolliShops will appeal to those who love...Elegant Whimsy, Romantic Inspirations, Fanciful Creations. LolliShops patrons enjoy feeling like a kid in a Candy Store!LolliShops will be the froufrou friendly market place. I came across this sight during the bloggy giveaways, but never thought I would be accepted. For some reason I decided to apply...what does it hurt, right? Well, I was accepted in just a couple hours. **doing the happy dance** I am pretty excited to be among such great artists. Come check out their blog here. Bookmark the site it's going to be great! I am planning on a special new line of ornaments for my new lollishops site. Keep checking back for some sneak peaks.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.
