Weekends Over Time to Work

WOW, Monday went by quickly. I had Monday Brain all morning! It took two cups of strong coffee this morning to function. (Monday Brain is when you do something and swear it was done, but check and it is either not done, or it is done and you will, and I MEAN will be up in 5 minutes again thinking "did I do that??") yeah :)

BUT!! the exciting thing! My new business cards came!!! I paid extra to get them here ASAP because I have been busy (new job) and I wasn't sure what to get. But I found these amazing bird (wow, yeah. . . shocker I know) cards which are ADORABLE!!! And they go great with my metal bird-card holder.

Moo is an awesome creative site! I think the finished product is amazing! Gotta love them!!!

I have been busy, so therefore I would like to share what I have been INSANELY working on for the past two months. Yes, that is right, this Sunday, I will be in my first ever art show. Super excited! I have a ton done! But I still have a lot to do. I have four more clutch bags to finish, hopefully 3 more coffee sleeves, earrings are done. I'm working on more necklaces, and ruffle shirts.
Okay, so it will be Nation Cherry Festival here in N. Michigan, hence the cherry fabrics. I hope that this stuff will sell big time! I am making it especially for this occasion, (so it better!!)
I'll have like 17 some clutches :)

Sample of my cherry earrings!!
Yeah, that's a lot I know! Gotta be prepared. I think I have like 60 or so earrings. Should that be enough? I hope so, cause I ran out of button supplies hahaha. OF course my display won't look like this, I am just storing them like that for now. :) There are several duplicates, so I'll be able to put those away until they sell.

So that's what I have been working on like a mad woman. :)

Busy Week and Two to Go

I have been away, I know sorry everyone! But I have a great excuse. I started my new job on Wednesday and it's going well. I am trying to learn as much as I can since this is something very new to me. Well, I've been an office assistant for many years, but this a completely new field to me. :)

Also, yesterday in the mail, I got my notice for my art show. I know where my booth will be now and what time I have to be there at. I am SUPER!!! excited! I want to take some pictures of all of the items that I have. I have been working hard to get a lot done now before the event. I think I am about 75% complete. So with TWO weeks left to prepare I am feeling a bit of the "crunch" time coming. But I am know I will be set.

However, I am not sure I am ready for July yet? WOW where did 2011 go?? I am really glad we have gotten a lot done for the wedding this month, because July is gonna be crazy! Seems like something every weekend. But it's gonna be a blast!

Well, I am off!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend! and Happy Fathers Day!

Happy Monday Everyone! The sun is shining and the warm weather is soon to return!! YEAH!!!

Tom and I went hiking yesterday! So much fun, we went to a place just west of us and found a great trail all wooded and then we got to a look-out point over Lake Michigan. I love living in this state! However, I am a goof and forgot my camera. But we just decided we'll have to do it again!
We then ventured to the Cherry Republic store. If you come to my "hood" this store is a must!! We got some Cherry BBQ Sauce (really good) and some Cherry Hard Cider and a Cherry Ginger Ale. Oh man! We ate well last night!

It has been very hot and humid here in N. Michigan. However tomorrow it's suppose to cool right down to 63 or something! WOW go from 90 to 60s, too drastic I think. BUT! I am not complaining. We have had it too cold for too long! So yeah for warmth! (Plus I am in AC all day)
I really need to smile more. . .
Necklace: sew ewe-nique designs
Earrings: sew ewe-nique designs
white tee- target
Skirt- Old Navy
Sandals- sseko's

I also stopped this morning before heading to work to the farm market to get some peonies and strawberries. The flowers are just wonderful! Brighten up my desk, and I cannot wait to munch on some strawberries later!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!

Tickle Me Tuesdays

Alright, so I have a few pics to show for this HOT and Humid Tuesday.

The window in our living room is open and the sun is pouring in what absorbs this the most? A black backed cat. Hamlet loves this! Yes, he's chubby and his feet are hanging off the end. So cute!

So, this was Nanaki as I woke up this morning. AKA LONG CAT! Why must he always sleep at the foot of my side of the bed. Never Toms always mine. . . oh well, he's cute and VERY friendly.

Linking up with Sarah
Have a great Tuesday!

Busy Busy. . . but here's some cakes!

Okay, so I know I haven't posted since Wednesday, I was very bad. . . but when I wanted to post earlier today, our internet was once again out. However our provider has now fixed said problem, and we are up and rolling again.

Tomorrow is my friend Erin's bridal shower and so I went shopping today to get her a gift. . . can't say because sometime she reads my blog :)

But I have been looking at cakes now for our wedding. I have an idea of what I want to do, but pictures always help. Five smaller cakes with five different flavor because honestly, I don't have "one" flavor of cake that I like more than others, I like a lot of different ones!

I just like the concept of each cake, all different.

So, I have to say thank you to everyone for "outfit" advice. I have been to the stores and I know have an idea. I will slowly build my wardrobe, because I am on shoe-string budget here. I have however, been working like mad on new product and ideas for my store. SPRING15 for 15% is still good for a few more weeks! get it while you can!

What I Will Be Wearing Wednesday

So yesterday, I got some really exciting news. I got a new job! I am very excited, however, I must up-grade my wardrobe. Working at my current office job has been very very casual, jeans and a t-shirt. I try to keep it nice, but it's defiantly not business casual. So suggestions are welcome! I have an idea of what to wear and what NOT to wear. No jeans, no backless shirts or dresses-unless covered up, if I wear sleeveless I must wear something over. Skirts cannot be too short.
So, getting inspiration from Summer Finn from 500 Days of Summer (I love that movie!!) I gotta get a new white blouse, mine shrunk when a certain fiance of mine stuck it in the dryer. . . And grey slacks!

I love this blue look! I should rock more blue with my dark hair now!

Okay soo the next five looks are from Banana Republic. I unfortunately cannot afford the BR look, but I can certainly find matches for less. :)

Great linen pants, perfect for summer!

I LOVE this wrap jacket!

This dress is iffy, I know I would wear something over-top, but not sure, I just love the look though!

So if anyone has suggestions, please comment, I need all the help I can get. :)
I'm linking up with Lindsey from the pleated poppy!

Happy Wednesday!
