Hi friends! I don't know if you noticed but I took an unexpected blog break. I just missed one day, than two, than a week and a half.
I feel so out of touch right now because I haven't read any blogs. I glanced at my reader and I saw that so much has happened with you guys in these almost 2 weeks that I've missed! So I have lots of catching up to do this week.
Here's what I've been up to since I took a blog break:
On September 7th we celebrated our shop's 3 year anniversary
with live music, free food and drinks! It's crazy how time flies.
Last week we had some chilly, rainy, fall-like days in Oklahoma. It was nice to open our shop doors and smell the rain!
This past Saturday we walked a block from our shop to watch the Cherokee Strip Parade in our downtown. We have this parade every September to commemorate Enid's land run history. I probably should have snapped a photo of the horses and longhorns or of the man on the cool old school bike, but instead I took a picture of the emergency vehicles throwing candy because I thought it was hilarious. Do other city parades show off their emergency vehicles, trash trucks and tractors?? And then of course I took a picture of our friend representing the democrats.
After the parade they had some cool stuff going on in our downtown square but we had to leave to open our shop. After a shopper came in with her cotton candy I got really excited and left to go get mine! I love having our shop downtown where they have a lot of awesome events. I love our little city!
I wish there was cotton candy there every weekend.
I got accepted into my favorite craft show I love to do every year (since 2007)! It's Indie Emporium in Tulsa! So I've been doing lots of cutting and making these owl pillows of mine. Every year I say I'm going to plan my booth ahead of time and what not, but every year the night before the show I run around grabbing things that can hold my merchandise. I really hope that doesn't happen again because I usually start having stress dreams where I drive to the show and have nothing in my car. I'm hoping that sharing this problem here will throw my issue out into the universe and help me to actually plan ahead this year! It's next weekend.
I've missed you guys!! Can't wait to catch up on your blogs.
