Work party

This weekend was our company holiday party! It was Western-themed, which was really fun. Since I was too shy to dress up on Halloween, I made sure to look my western-ist for the party. J wore jeans (for the first time I can remember). Aw yeah, livin' on the edge. I had such a good time.

"Cloak of the Quarter"

Well, shucks.

I have to drink how many ounces of water???

Day three of Highly-Marketed-Mainstream-Diet-Plan. If anyone tries to convince me of the nutritional value of carrot sticks, I'm going to gag.

4. Conversations with MR or SJ or CO
5. My Kitties

8. Eucalyptus lotion

9. Inside jokes with my brothers
10. Sarah Groves (especially "You Cannot Lose My Love")

11. pay day (review items 1 & 6)

12. Coffee and book dates with J at Woods.

My first craft fair!

November 15, 2008: Sister-in-law and I had a table of our home-made crafts at the Lynden High School Art Department's craft fair. It was a long day without sky-rocket sales, but it was a good experience to learn the best way to price, display, and sell our handiwork. Plus, it motivated us to make a whole bunch of items (that we can now give as Christmas gifts!).

Our number one seller was Erin's magnets. There are a lot of stylish Fridge doors in Whatcom County this week!

Aromatherapy Wrist Rests

Felt snowmen

Miniature billfolds, made from vintage quilt squares

Lavender eye pillows with removable (washable) slip cover and carrying case.
