Farmers Market

I know I should've posted this before yesterday, and I had every intent to, but life got in the way.

I'm now officially doing the farmers market in Port Orchard!! I'm selling my cards, banners (i.e. It's a Girl, etc) and hair bow holders. I'm sharing a booth with a friend of mine that makes hair bows and I'm really excited for this new venture we're doing. :)

My first day was yesterday (my friend started a week early but I was at a wedding) and it was really fun. I didn't sell many cards but I wasn't expecting to the first day. Yesterday and next week will probably be just getting my name out there.

If you're in the Port Orchard area, come check us out! My name is A Caffeinated Crafter and my friend, Marita's, is 29:11.

4th of July Weekend

We spent the weekend at our family cabin on Hood Canal. It was great to get away and have a change in scenery. It was a beautiful weekend and we had lots of fun! :)

Snuggling with daddy

Combing Uncle Josh's hair

The fog that rolled in one morning.

The local deer; the neighbor lady feeds her a couple times a day. Carver LOVED watching her :)

ummm... yeah. Caught this while I was watching the deer. haha silly boy!

What we've been up to...

Here's a quick update on what we've been up to. (I'll post pictures later when I can get to my camera)

*June 24-26: We spent the weekend in Ellensburg, just relaxing. It was a beautiful weekend and we spent a lot of time outside. I have a bunch of pictures from this weekend so I'll post those later.

*July 1-5: We spent the weekend up at Chris's grandma's cabin on Hood Canal. I'm always in awe of the beauty of the cabin every time we go up there. Our friends, Josh and Emily, came up with us. It was a great weekend and really relaxing. Chris brought his dingy and bought a crab pot. Over the weekend, we caught 55ish crab between our pot and Chris's dad's three pots. It was a long process to cut all of them but we ate a lot and gave the rest away. I ate enough to not be sick of it! I usually binge until I can't stand them any more and then I'm disappointed the rest of the summer.

*Today (July 9th): Carver got a zoo pass for his birthday from Chris's parents. We didn't have anything planned for today (surprise!) and it was a bright sunshine-y day (that's what we say to Carver haha) so we decided to go to the zoo! Carver picked the sharks to see first (can you tell he's his father's son?!?) He was in complete awe of all the animals. Since we went in the morning, we beat the rush and it wasn't too busy. I got a couple good pictures while we were there but not many of Carver. :( He was just having too good of a time for me to be behind the lens.

I've finally made a decision that will, hopefully, help our family and give me a little crafting money. A friend and I are going to start doing the Port Orchard Farmers Market!!! She's thinking about starting this next weekend (We have a wedding in Spokane) and my start date will be the next weekend, the 23rd. If you're in the Port Orchard area, come check us out!!! I'll be selling cards that I make (named: A Caffeinated Crafter) and my friend, Marita, will be selling some awesome hair bows (named: 29:11). I'm not expecting to make a bunch of money but anything I get will help me continue my 'hobby'. :) haha

Happy Birthday America!!!!!

I just wanted to pop in and say Happy 4th of July to everyone. :) We're at our cabin and I am using my husband's mi-fi to get internet access. He's out checking the crab pots so I have to be quick. Have a great day and remember the real reason for today.
