At the Moment:
We lost our dog Kona this month, which was very difficult. She was an awesome dog, and we miss her so much! I’m sure it will take a while before this all seems normal, but it is a tough adjustment after all these years of having her in our home.
Our friend Kim came into town & visited right after, and brought a lot of laughter with her (much needed). Love you, Kim! We also took a family trip out to a cottage by Grand Rapids and absolutely loved it. We checked out the incredible John Ball Zoo and had a fun afternoon at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. We spent evenings looking at the stars over the lake in our backyard and some time in the lake with the kids. We even got to go bowling in a tiny 6 lane alley in the town we stayed in, it was really fun. Then, right back to school for Roy & back to work for us!
Speaking of work, I had a fun day selling at the Kerrytown Bookfest for the first time (with one of my most crafty friends right next to me, Type Shy, yay!) and my 8th year of selling at DIY Street Fair. Pals Justin and Lindsy were the best helpers & Carey the raddest neighbor tag-team as always. Thanks to everyone who shopped and stopped by both shows!
I spent a week embroidering more record jackets and sold almost all of them at DIY Street Fair, and also sold most of the new infinity scarves I’d made de-stashing my fabric shelves. What is left will be going on the site soon for you to see & shop!
