...I'm going to miss this guy.
Sappy blogpost coming your way!
The monkeys and me are heading to Vegas, tomorrow.
I'm really going to miss him while we are gone.
He is so sweet and thoughtful.
He is so silly and goofy.
He is so kissable and romantic.
He is downright HANDSOME.
It has been a really DIFFICULT couple of months for us.
I don't know how he remains so patient with me. I think I would have given up on me a long time ago.
It's going to be so hard to be away from him.
We'll miss you, Scott!
We love you.
I love you.

Happy birthday to one of my dearest friends, Jenna.
It's the big 4-0 and I must say...it looks GOOD on her!
We spent the morning at one of my favorite breakfast spots, JELLY.
It is so cute and the food is DEEEEEELISH.
What a HaPpY place to celebrate a birthday!
We had a delightful time, and we looooooooooooooooved our server!
I presented Jenna with some of my new "ittie bitties," in the colors of her wedding, which is also coming up SOON! She is marrying the most WONDERFUL man.
I've known Jenna for TWENTY years now. Wow. It's amazing to look back at a friendship like ours. We have so much history and we have shared so many good times and a few bad times.
I don't know what I would do without her over the last two months. She has listened to me cry and vent and rant and rave, all the while making me laugh like only SHE can. She's one of the funniest, most talented and inspiring people I know.
Happy birthday to you, "Silly Slug!"
I love you!

Bigsby and I spent the day in the studio. I made a bed for him out of this little Coca Cola box. He loved it.
I've had a rough couple of days so it took me a while to get the "creative juices" flowing.
Once I started, I couldn't stop...
and boy, did I have fun!
I am calling them "ittie bitties."
They are little pieces of Fern and Sprout flare that will brighten up any back-to-school outfit, or fall blazer.
And of course, you can wear them in your hair
and on your shoes, too.
They kinda remind me of vintage enamel pins (only made of felt.)
Each piece is only about 1/2 - 2 inches wide.
I want to eat them like CANDY!
Please - send me some feedback! I would love to know what you think!

It's back-to-school time!
I've been working on some new designs for fall,
including some new earrings and clippies.
But, you can't go wrong with the classics shown above.
I spent quite a bit of time at Fancy Tiger Crafts, last week and over the weekend...
I splurged on these BEEEEEAUUUUTIFUL wool felt sheets. You'll be seeing these colors take shape in the form of Fern and Sprout goodies at the Gypsy Farm Market, in September. Can't wait!
Even though I'm ready for this heat to end, I will hang on to summer for as long as I can. Look at these amazing flowers right down the street from my studio...
Happy Monday to you, my friends!

October, 1965 - June,2011
The boys lost their dad this summer. And, I lost a very huge part of my heart and my history. It's been about 7 weeks since he died in an accident at his workplace.
It has been a VERY, VERY, VERY difficult summer to say the least.
Bret, we miss you.
I just want to say THANK YOU to all of my friends and my family, for your love and support.
I have been a mess. I'm still a mess, but I know I have all of you and I feel the love. Thank you for sticking with me. I'm so glad you are here, and I am back to my regular blogging schedule.
There are exciting things coming up, this fall. I can't wait to tell you about all of them!!!
The boys went back to school today. And today, I went back to work.
I must say...it is good to be back.
Thank you for reading.
See you tomorrow!
<3 to you all.
