A Big Weekend, and a Giveaway!

This was our second year in a row to participate in the Fishers Freedom Festival.  I was lucky enough to share a booth with my great friend Helen, from Midtown Chic Boutique.  We always have such a terrific time together.  It's really a mini-vacation for us to spend a couple of days together, catch up with old friends, and play dress-up with some of the cutest little girls ever!

The Freedom Festival celebrates our great country, and the 4th of July in particular.  All the patriotism this weekend (and cute kids wearing red, white & blue), has put me in the mood for a giveaway!

Here are the goodies up for grabs!

One-of-a-kind Knot Dress, Size 2T 

2T, Bodice 19", Length 16.5"

One-of-a-kind Knot Dress, Size 4/5

4T, Bodice 24", Length 22"

Hair Flower in Red, White & Blue of course!

We will draw 3 winners on Wednesday of this week!  Items will be mailed on Thursday via Priority Mail in order to arrive by the 4th!

Here is how to enter!

Please leave a comment on Facebook or on the blog for each activity you complete!  Winners will get to choose their item based on the order their names are drawn.

Best of luck and happy 4th!

An Update....finally!

Has it really been over a month (ok, a bit more than that even) since my last post?  If you are sticking with me and reading this thank you!

This past month has been a whirl-wind for us.

1 big move to the country
4 shows in 6 weeks (this is a ton for me!)
a family vacation
a CRAZY month!

The property that we moved to was built in 1963 by Dr. & Mrs. Jack Walker.  They raised a happy family 4 children here.  Now, we are so very blessed to have the opportunity to raise our little family in this beautiful place.

Here is the view from the house to the main road.  The drive is lined in gorgeous knarly Black Locusts.

The first order of business upon moving was for the men to assemble the new swing set, which overlooks the hill along the river.  The Bug & Hill did the project entirely on their own!

(a view down the hill to the river from the swingset)

My first order of business was ripping out the green outdoor carpet that lined the basement floor.  Yuck!  The poor trash man thankfully hauled it all away.  The floors & walls have all been bleached, and this is where my new studio now resides.  

(Hill, The Bug, and Grandma helped a bunch on this project too!)

Now I have a perfect sewing spot!  It's loaded with natural light from a large window and walkout door.  

The best part is, I get a view of this huge Burr Oak.

Hill & I both grew up in the country on farms, and are so excited to have the opportunity to raise our children that same way.  We're just country folk at heart!

I've been spending loads of time in my new "sweat shop" and I have been creating dozens of dresses for my recent shows.  The last in my series of 4 shows is this weekend!
