Goodbye Summer! Hello School!

The boys started school today.
Jimmy started Kindergarten.
Doesn't he look like a pro? I can't tell you how excited he was!
(I can't tell you how excited I was. :)

Evan started 2nd grade. What a big dude.

Yesterday, I got a cooking lesson from my new friend, Natalie. We made dumplings! What fun! She just lives two blocks away, and my boys love hangin' with her daughter. Natalie sings and she also has a cooking blog. Check it out!
This is Natalie, choppin' carrots.

We chopped carrots, and cabbage, and ginger.
Then we added some chopped tofu.
We added an egg to the mixture to "glue" everything together.

Then we spooned everything into the dumpling paper, and folded the paper squares into triangles. We sealed the edges with egg/water mixture.

We lightly floured the dumplings and laid them on a baking sheet.

About 6 or 7 at a time, we dropped them into the steamer.
Only 6 - 7 minutes til YUMMY!!!!!!!!

They didn't last long! And they were soooooooo easy!
Can't wait for more cooking lessons from my new friend! Thanks, Natalie!
Her and her family just moved here about a month ago, so I can't wait to show them around Denver.

Drumroll please...
Here is a preview of my new collection of "Felty Delights" for fall! These are just a few of the pieces I've been working on. PLEASE let me know what you think!!!
I am REALLY excited about these new fuzzy pieces! They will be on my Etsy shop, soon!

Speaking of Etsy, I have been NEGLECTING MY ETSY SHOP! I haven't updated or added any pieces since I opened the shop. I apologize. It should be up and running by next Wednesday. I promise!!!!!

Please - try the dumplings! So easy and so fun!
Thanks again, Natalie!
More soon!
