This weekend has been a whirlwind of excitement, fun, and learning.  We have done two craft shows in the last two days, and really enjoyed making our booth beautiful, meeting kindred spirits and crafty characters, and sharing our creations with people who love and appreciate them.  Here are some photos of the cuteness.

Those of you who have kids know how much energy it takes out of you.  And, the more kids you have, the more demands are made on your time, energy, patience, etc.  So, the other night while scrapbooking and discussing the business of life (she has 4 kids now!), I said to Ann, “I don’t even know how you can find the energy to craft.”  Her apt reply was, “How could I not craft?”  She is perfectly right.  Sometimes we forget that taking time to express ourselves creatively, or do whatever it is that helps you feel complete and competent — this gives to our lives more than it takes.  I know sometimes you just can’t bear to think about getting out supplies and starting a project, but there have actually been times when I stayed up the whole night in a wild frenzy of creative anointing (as we like to call it), and was still so excited, fulfilled, and passionate about it the next day that I didn’t even feel tired.

I would like to take this moment to encourage all the moms who have put their art on a shelf to take care of babies.  If you think you are done with art for the rest of your life, think again.  The next time you are feeling brave, take out your painting supplies, paper crafts, sewing machine, or whatever.  Take it off the shelf and try it out.  You may be surprised to find a bunch of little pieces of you heart floating around in there, that you didn’t even realize you had left behind.  🙂

Yes, this is what it takes to launch a creative day with amen, a cute bowl full of cute little grapes. And, the cuteness makes eating lunch all the more enjoyable! So with our grapes in their cute red rimmed bowl, we set out on a new venture: Baby Bibs! So exciting!! For some reason, I got a photo of the grapes, but not the bibs- so we’ll have to post some later. Needless to say (wink) that they are extremely adorable and sweet, and pretty much every momma will want their baby to spill green beans all over one!
