Happy Mother's Day!

McKenzie Hope,
Having a child is such a precious miracle.
And I'm beyond blessed to be your Mama.

You are the shining little star of my world.
Such a tiny girl with a huge bright personality!

Each day I see you changing & learning..
becoming such a 'big girl'.  
You are so smart, 
and are more beautiful 
with ever passing moment.
It makes me so proud... 
and a little sad all at once.
You are just changing almost faster 
than I can document or hold on to
the memory...

You make me laugh so hard
I might cry or pee my pants...

You touch my heart in such a way...

Precious daughter, please always know
no matter what, that I love you more 
than words could ever explain or express.
And nothing, and I do mean nothing 
will ever change that baby girl.

Busy Busy Busy

I've been slacking on my blogging
mostly cause I was so busy 
preparing for my first show
... and since then I've been busy 
trying to photograph all my new items.

My first art and craft show went well.
I had hoped for a little better,
but it was a rainy day...

I had 2 great friends who came out 
and took turns helping me.
And wonderful family and friends
who came out to see and support me :)

Here's my table...

and here it is with 'Shelly' in a different spot
to make her better seen to those walking in the door...

I learned a lot,
like for the next show I will 
put money towards a nice black table cloth.
I had spent so much money on so many other things 
I just didn't want to spend a ton of money on a table cloth
this time around...

I was next to two wonderful ladies
and all the other vendors at the show
were super sweet.
We had lots of fun chatting it up and 
walking around to see each other's items.

Plus it was free to have a spot...
I'll definitely go back in December :)
