Left Overs

I mentioned the other day that I did my first ever craft fair last week with my sister in law over in WI. We had NO idea how it was going to go, but left excited about a future in crafts and an Etsy store! We sold out of almost everything we made except for a few items. I decided to post them on here in case anyone is interested. What is not sold will be going into our Etsy shop once we get that up and running. Get in touch with me if you are interested in any of the items!

The 12 Dates of Christmas

I got this idea from my friend's blog, honeysuckle.blogspot.com, and decided to do my own version. I simply wrote out 12 "dates"  for Kurt and I to do together. Some of them include the kids. I'm sure next year I will do an Advent Calendar with the kids which will probably include a lot of these "dates" plus more.

To mkae:
I already had green card stock so I just wrote out the dates, put a whole punch in them, and hung them with ribbon or strips of material on yarn over my kitchen sink. We'll pick one to do every few days. We start tonight with...Watch the Christmas Hallmark movie and drink hot chocolate!

Other "dates"
Go downtown to see the lights and get Waterstreet coffee
Shop for the kids stockings
Make bread and deliver to neighbors
Address christmas cards
Make cookies
Try a new restaurant
Watch Elf
Breakfast in Bed

Family Photos

We went to WI this weekend for a visit and to do my very first ever craft fair with my sister in law! I see an Etsy shop and more fairs in our near future! We had a blast and got to sell things we created and love! 

I also got to take my brother's family pictures. It was one of those sessions that was quick but every picture was great! It was hard to pick favorites! Here's a little sample of them. Hopefully soon I was start doing photo sessions again. I'm feeling settled in MI and am excited to start doing photography again.
