almost crafty

"There is no last minute anymore," I said to steeb this week as we looked at our schedules in preparation for the big family adventure to Portland for CRAFTY WONDERLAND. The "last minute" is now spoken for by breast feeding,diaper changes and the inevitable milk vomit down the front of the outfit. So I was already slowing down on my production,allowing time to pack and plan tomorrow before we hit the road friday. But even so,I must have been trying to do too much at once, running lists through my head while I tried to do some basic chores and entertain the baby,checking on dinner and thinking about what hand sewing I might do when the boy went to sleep. While washing dishes tonight I sliced my pinkie open on a broken juice glass. Stopped me instantly and brought me to the present. Broken glass always makes me sort of Buddist. What's done is done and now I just have to nurse my wound while finishing up the essentials for travel.Everything else just won't happen. And that's okay. I'm extra glad I got up early today to finish the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle hat...

thanks bellingham

Thanks to everyone who has come out to the farmers market even when the weather has been, well, typical northwest spring:rain, drizzle, hail, sprinkle, sunny, showers and even a rainbow. It is not an easy time to be a professional crafter and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to continue doing what I love. My biggest stress after this awesome month is how to make MORE for market with the baby in my life. And that my friends, is a very lucky kind of stress to be under right now.

The moth and squirrel family will be in Portland next weekend for

We will be back at the Bellingham Farmers Market the second week in may,just in time for some last minute Mothers Day shopping.
