One crafty weekend a success!

Jada & I had a little crafty weekend planned. It was a huge success. The girls decorated American girl doll size tee's, pumkins & pictures. The martha stewart line stamps, stickers ect. I bought were a huge hit. We also made cookies thanks to my friend Kristin who also brought over a nice little Halloween style chex mix. We had a blast.
Jake & Jada went to the Brewers game Sunday..which by the way they won and now are in the play offs! Yay! So Max and I had our own crafty day which was spent running to the craft store.. they just opened a Michaels in Appleton and I LOOOOVE IT!!! then we went out to lunch.. and a quick stop by U BAKE for some pumpkin cookies for him to decorate! We ended the day with a little game of kick ball! :) Man am I out of shape!
After such a great weekend my Monday is off to a rough start! Our dog Buster had a seizure (he has always had them, but far & few now they are getting worse!)
I also got the kids to school just as the bell rang & Jake is working in Madison for the next 3 weeks! I am feeling a little frustrated!
On a better note~ I have lots to tell you about our month long celebration.. our shop turns 1 on wed.!

Have a great day!

Organic make-up......

I have been having skin issues ever since my son was born... I am told hormones gone wild! ugggh! I was told by a Dr. once the best thing is less is more & the more natural the better. Lucky for me I have a soap making aromatherapy knowledged friend/bus. partner & just using natural Sweet Usoapia brands have helped sooo much. The thing I struggle with most is make-up. I wear very little because I have allergies (The hayfever type) and rub my eyes ect.. so No eye make-up or lipstick ect. I was using some sort of Mineral make-up and was not loving it...but I need something cause my skin gets really red.. long story short I ran out (and remembered at about 11:00 pm) and forgot to get more. A late night run to Walgreens ended up with a fabulous purchase of a organic wear bronzer (just a tad of color) & powder in earth friendly packaging! It was also affordable! So far I love it & just found the website to pass a long! Here ya go... Check it out!

Have a great weekend! :)

A great afternoon at The little Farmer!

The kids had early dismissal today so we walked home from school got in the car and drove around lake winnebago to the Fond du Lac area to visit two of our favorite apple orchards! We stopped at a smaller one first to buy our favorite *honey crisp* apples and some AWESOME homemade donuts and then drove about 15 miles to the next for an hour at The little farmer! It is such a great place for kids to see and set in such beautiful countryside! I also figured out what was wrong with my camera.. the rechargeable batteries were shot! It is amazing!!! Check out some of the great pictures I took today! :)

New Jewelry at the shop!

I just ordered new jewelry for the shop. Handmade by a lovely gal in Texas. I love the vintage feel it has & I just love how it looks on Misha's vintage mirror!
As I was marking it all and displaying it I decided I must keep one of the necklaces for myself! :)
