Deciding on a Thank You Picture

This past weekend we celebrated my daughters 5th birthday and much to my delight the party was a success! Never mind the fact that my house is still in shambles from the party that we had at home after the party... And that I still feel somewhat exhausted from it all. But I would do it all again in a heartbeat, and I'm already starting to think about next years! I will post more on the actual party later but for now I need help on figuring out which picture to use for our Thank You notes. Having Izzy hold this sign was not an easy task - but I have narrowed it down to the final four.


(this one I just think is really funny because of the serious face,
but I'm not quite sure everyone else would see the humor in it...)

So if you happen to have a favorite let me know!

My First Handmade Market

Today I experienced my very first handmade market. I was really excited to share some of my handmade creations and give it a whirl. It didn't go anywhere near as well as I hoped but I learned a lot, and have a lot of ideas on how to make the next one better. In all honesty it was somewhat heartbreaking because I seriously thought I was going to sell a bunch of stuff and when I didn't, I felt like I had failed. But tonight as I'm sitting here I've decided not to let it get me down, and instead to change a few things, keep trying and simply give it another shot. However it was a fun day, I took a bunch of pictures and it was a fun atmosphere. I had lots of friends and my husband and daughter come down to visit and support myself and my friend Melissa that I shared a booth with.

Here are a few of my bib necklaces.

And some of my hair clips.

And even some "ruffle bottom onesies!"
These I have some new ideas for - so excited!

I've got a bunch of ideas swirling around in my head for new items, and ways to make the items I was trying to sell even better. No plans to give up. Just plans to keep on crafting.
