Let's Get It Started! (But Not Finished)

This is my latest set of bags, a larger version of the "Double Flap Snap". There were 6, but I actually finished one because it was a custom order. The remainder of them need straps & buttons sewn on (I will admit they were taped on for the photos) and threads clipped, which I will get to... eventually.

Brewsky Power!

On Friday night my husband and I joined a couple of friends for Brew Fest, a beer tasting in Neenah, WI. It is a charity event for St. Gabriel's PTO and this year they planned on putting the money towards automating the school library.
All I have to say is - if it's for the children, I'll drink to that :)

Some of the other riders that were there on Saturday (not my family)

This was my view - Sadie, a very nice, but pokey horse

On Saturday I took my nieces horseback riding at Blue Haven Stables for their birthdays. Now that they are a little older, I try to do birthday activities rather than gifts. I don't get to see them that often, so it gives me an excuse to spend time with them.

Across the Pond

Earlier in the summer I had a wholesale order for some of my cute / sassy wallets that were to be sold at the Julie Sion Boutique in Paris that would be opening this fall.

I shipped them out and never heard back from the customer. The other day I was looking at her blog and she had a post about the opening of her new boutique (I think - I don't speak a word of French, but that I gathered from the photos). If you look on the right side of the little table on the left you can see my wallets :)


It is amazing how much a candle can enhance the look of a scribbled on and butchered pumpkin.

In preparation for Halloween I got together with a friend for our 4th annual pumpkin carving. It was a lovely day, so we were able to keep the mess outside.
