It's so nice to be almost back to normal! My children have been battling the dreaded swine flu for the last week or two. It has been a long haul for sure... several scary nights of 105+ fevers and really sick children. I was even running a fever off and on for several days. But... so far so good today... no fevers for anyone and, aside from nagging coughs, the kids feel so much better. If we make it through today with no fevers the pediatrician said we are free and clear! YEAH! So... now that I have a bit of time I thought I'd share some photos from Apple Fest. This my the booth my pal Jami and I had.

We were really happy with the way our booth turned out, unfortunately though the weather did not cooperate. It was the coldest October day we have had here in 20+ years. We froze our tushes off and apparently looked pretty funny doing it. The few brave festival goers that came all stopped to laugh and comment on our set up. Some even took our pictures! We couldn't figure out what was so funny, but then again we were sitting in camp chairs, bundled in sleeping bags, hats, scarves, and gloves, sitting in front of a mini propane heater... well at least the booth looked pretty!
I have lots of fall and holiday goodies to add to my etsy shop, I'll share some previews here when I get them photographed! Have a great day!

A few little peeks...

I've been working my tush off trying to get some things made for the Apple Festival this weekend. It always seems I'm crammin as much in as possible at the last minute. I thought I'd share a few little looks at some of the things I've been working on.

If you live in the Missoula/Bitteroot Valley area be sure to stop by and see me! The Apple Festival is always a ton of fun for the entire family. It's just off the main drag in Hamilton this Saturday from 9-4. There will be lots of craft vendors,a farmers market, homemade pies, apple cider made on site by the boy scouts, music, food, and the traditional kettle of apple butter cooking away! (oh... and box after box of yummy Macintosh apples for sale!) My pal Jami and I have a table there and she has tons of fab goodies to sell to so be sure and stop by!
