Thirty One

Someone recently asked me to host a Thirty One party. I am very excited about it; they have the cutest bags!! I made my fall Vera Bradley wish list yesterday, and I will start my Thirty One wish list tomorrow.

Tomorrow, I am doing something I NEVER do. I have a plate party tomorrow afternoon in a nearby town (WM); I am going to do some shopping all ALONE before the party. I will not know what to do--no mid-store potty breaks; no Dora purchases; no whining.... Can you tell I am a little excited? I do plan on stopping in at ToysRUs; some of my students want "trick" yo-yos, and I hope to get some Christmas shopping done. Facebook is keeping me extremely busy; etsy is still closed. I will try to do better about posting!

My New Studio

I got a building!! I had honestly given up, then this building fell in my lap:) It was a truly blessed day last Monday. I bought a building for a great price AND accidentally drove through a highway intersection without stopping/without having a wreck. Yes, the Lord was looking out for me last Monday. I thought it would be fun to post some progress pictures, so here are some before. The pictures show the building in its old home and one of the interior. I can't wait to get started. I have some big ideas for painting my new studio! I am ready to get moved into the space; with 6 scheduled plate parties, I will need somewhere quiet to work.

Here I Am!

I know I have been MIA again, but I am snowed under with no end in sight. I was looking forward to the long weekend and thought I would catch up, but no. I hurt my back yesterday, and it was downhill from there. I have been able to paint today, so I hope to get at least one order in the mail tomorrow. I thought I would share a few pics of what has been going on!
I got an order for some bass party favors. I painted a bass and some cattails on water bottles. Each bottled was wrapped with a bows and tag. I hope he had a great party!
Below are some pics of my back to school girls. We wear uniforms, so we have to accessorize with cute belts and bows. We wore braids the first day with polka dots. My mom found some Dora ribbon and made Molly her own belt and bows. She has had to dress up too. She loves being back at the babysitter; I am so blessed to have someone she loves keeping her. She runs the show in that house. She walks in placing her breakfast order and telling them what to turn on the TV. A couple of days ago, she walked in saying, "I like sausage; turn on Dora." The sad part was; everyone started running around to fill her orders. We have created a monster!!
