This weekend we're setting up a small booth in Okemah at their first annual Oktoberfest! Probably won't be much for sales but we'll get to hang out with the inlaws and hang in one of my favorite Oklahoma towns! Next weekend though we're setting up at the Indie Emporium! If you've never been or haven't heard about it before, you're kinda really sorta missing out. I'll post more about the show later as time draws closer and when I have internet! (cross fingers!)
Hope that quickie was as good for you as it was for me!

Ahh the awkward middle school years :) I think I was probably 14 or so in this one? Interesting to look back on my room back then...seems like it was in a transition phase...
High school era. Actually, since the hair was short and red, this was probably right after I graduated and started college! This would be some Walmart antics here.

Notice my new zooming skills! ;)

How about a weekend recap? Well Friday night I headed over to Lovetts Gallery to greet folks for a reception in honor of the amazing Penny Painter. I got all dudded up in some fanciness, complete with heels and a little lip rouge! Stylin' I say ;)
Saturday morning, the mister and I got up and put to use our new bikes we found on Craigslist! Two Schwinns for sixty smackers! We rode to the Flea Market as this was its last Saturday until November (GASP!). My tush was sore but totally worth the ride :) After the FM, we rolled over to another building at the FairGrounds to attend India Fest! We ate our little hearts out, watched cool dances, oohed and awed over all of the beautiful outfits and picked an outfit up for myself as well! I lucked out and found the perfect Salwar outfit for TEN DOLLARS! A stunning three piece outfit for ten bucks! I was so stoked I danced around the kitchen in it for a bit :)
There was one more event going on this weekend at the FG and that was the Miniature Arabian Horse Show! There so SO many horses there that were about the size of the beast! The mister got a pic of a couple pulling a small carriage on his phone :) They were so freaking cute that I'm pretty sure I want one for my birthday :) Did I mention that I'm turning 30 next week?!?! Makes me a little weak in the knees! BARF! ;)
This is from the previous weekend when we checked out the South Tulsa Music Festival with the beast! We had to stop and take some family pictures :)
So what else is going on you ask? Well, I've been busy making new goodies in the evening, teaching during the day and trying to ignore the fact that a milestone bday is around the corner! Lucky for me, we have a show this weekend to keep my mind preoccupied! We will set up at the Broken Arrow Main Street Merchants Association Show this Saturday from 9-4! My grandpa LITERALLY lives on Main Street in BA so I LOVE to be a part of this show! Honestly, I'm not 100% certain which building we will be in but I will let you know ASAP! There will be lots of signage if you are out there :)
One big reason to come out and visit us is to see April's new necklaces she's been designing! This little lady has come up with a fantastic design that we can't wait to show off! We hope to see you!

We didn't do much this weekend except cook lots, watch the OU game, go to the South Tulsa Music Festival to see some fellow Okie awesome crafters, went to a pool party cookout with some fam and (the most exciting for me) REARRANGED!!! I LOVE to rearrange and all of the cleaning that comes with it! Ask my family :)
We spent Sunday rearranging the living room, complete with moving electrical lines and all that shocking jazz. I was SO pleased with that turnout that I thought I'd sweet talk the mister and see if he'd be ok with me rearranging the spare bedroom AKA my workspace!
I mean, the room functioned but I felt like there was some dead room in there and by rearranging, we could maximize our space to its fullest potential! Workspace before...nice, crowded, messy, disorganized, scrunched...

I worked up until the night before the show getting goodies ready. Made forty new switchplates
Made lots of new pairs of fun earrings
