November was SO crazy that I never even got to write a Mix Tape post for that month – my first missed one ever. So here’s a two month recap!
At the Moment:
The holiday season was a total whirlwind. Our family was busy with holiday happenings, family parties and hosting Christmas in our home. We’ve been enjoying winter & trying to do all the things – sledding, baking cookies & pies, lots of shopping for our loved ones, and warming up with hot chocolate and tea.
Detroit Urban Craft Fair was INCREDIBLE, and we had the best time. It is so much work, and we really have the most wonderful friends and HD family who help and make the weekend so inspiring and unforgettable. I can never thank everyone enough – there are just not enough words to explain what that weekend means to me, and Carey & I could not have done it without all of you guys (you know who you are!) It was again my favorite weekend of the whole year.
Reware Vintage had a record breaking holiday season, and a record breaking year. I couldn’t be happier about 2016 for this biz! Thanks to everyone who shopped with me on this site, in person and on EBay, and to my friends who help me in so many ways. Without you guys, this dream of mine wouldn’t be a reality and I’m beyond grateful for you all!
I made hundreds of notebooks and hundreds of Record Earrings these last couple months, and even snuck in some time for Record Embroideries. Roy & Della and I spent time after the busy holiday rush to craft, but I sadly never got to make anything for myself. It’s cool – I’ve got plans for January crafting.
SO much! The top plays were Solange “A Seat at the Table”, Jeff Rosenstock “Worry”, Nick Cave “Skeleton Tree”, Depeche Mode “Violator”, John Denver and the Muppets “A Christmas Together”, “A Very Special Christmas”, the Moana soundtrack, and The Raveonettes “Pe’ahi”.
Della’s fav song of the month: Jeff Rosenstock’s “Festival Song” – she makes us play it over and over and over again.
