Brand spankin' new...

Rings from Fern and Sprout!! Like the one my sweet friend, Anne is wearing...along with a hairclip from F and S and a scarf from her own line of goodies.

I am in kind of a giddy mood this evening. It's amazing that I'm awake at all, considering I haven't been to bed before midnight every night, this week. Then I get up at about 6:30 every day - not enough sleep for me. I also got a little sun at the market. Oh, so exhausted!

I HAD to stay up to make enough of my newest designs. I rolled out the red carpet for these little delights at Sweet William Market, today. They were going like HOTCAKES!! I love that expression. :)

I shared a booth with my friend, Anne. You can see her work here.

We had a great time this morning!

I also featured another new design - the fancy corsage.

So many sweet friends stopped by to see me today! And I made LOTS of new friends, too!

Thank you all for coming! Time for night night! Happy Holiday Weekend to you all!

Meet Rochester

As I was working on some new goodies this evening, I noticed something on my sewing machine out of the corner of my eye. At first, I thought it was a spider but as I looked closer, I realized it was a baby praying mantis. He hung out with me all evening while I worked. We named him Rochester. I wanted to keep him but he is now exploring new territory in the back yard. So long, Rochester!

Tomorrow is the last day of school. That means my work schedule will be changing in a major way. I can't wait to have some hang time with my monkeys.

And I can't wait for DISNEYLAND, coming up in June!!

I spent the day in my studio with my friend, Darci who is helping me with my marketing, pr, and administrative junk.

Yay! We got so much accomplished! Big changes are on the way for Fern and Sprout! Especially for my Etsy shop! I will keep you updated.

I have been working on some brand new pieces for Fern and Sprout. Something big!!! Something I've been wanting to make for a LONG time. I can't share it with you just yet but I will have SEVERAL of these new items at the Sweet William Market, this Saturday. They are going to be sweeping the nation! I can't wait to share them with you, so come see me!

We went to see Iron Man last weekend. Robert Downey, Jr. was hot. Mickey Rourke was fantastic. The movie was good...but Scarlett Johansson was breathtaking! Now, I'm into MEN...but GOOD GRIEF! She looked amazing!

Don't forget: SWEET WILLIAM MARKET - THIS SATURDAY - FOUNDER'S GREEN AT STAPLETON - 29TH AND SYRACUSE - 9 TO 2!!!! Please come see me and my new little delights!! Have a beautifully splendid evening!

More goodies to share

AAHHHHH...Manitou Springs, how I miss thee. So relaxing and soooooooo INSPIRING. We miss you, Safron!!

Here's some more eye candy for you. This time, it is Safron's home.

The bathroom is my fav.

And this is the garden...

We ate breakfast at the Couquette Creperie.


Then we shopped til we dropped, LITERALLY.
This store is called "Whatever." I think they should call it "Jackpot," because that's what we hit. I'll show you my jackpot later.

This was a cute store carrying tons of Day of the Dead stuff, and the owner made the cutest little glittery matchboxes. I'll show you those later.

We took in some yummy Mexican food at the Looop. And some margeritas...


This was the last shop we hit on our excursion. If I thought we hit the jackpot before, we REALLY hit it with this shop. Vintage cowboy boots GALORE!!! Vintage pottery, artwork, jewelry, furniture...and it was all 20 % off. We really scored.

Here's our loot from the weekend. Let's say we spent less than you think we did. MUCH LESS.

And so...that's our trip in a nutshell. Good times. Manitou is up there for me. Very, very inspiring. I miss it, already. Thank you for such a beautiful weekend, Safron!!
