{Faces Of Cash}

Faces Of Cash

Really, are there any words?? I think not.

{Just A Little Photo Shoot}


A few weeks ago I found this really cool place to take pictures. I want to go back everyday. It's so pretty. We went to brunch one Sunday morning then headed out to take pictures of Cash. He is growing SO fast!


I don't think it's possible to have more beautiful eyes than this little boy right here.


My favorite

This started out as pictures of Cash and a lady showed up and asked if we wanted a family picture. While I hadn't really planned for family portraits that day, but I LOVE how this turned out!



Second Fav

It's FRIDAY!!! (12:09, so I guess technically, it's Saturday) Any awesome weekend plans? I am going to try to hunt down a ladder. I have been looking for an antique ladder like this to display my quilts in my sewing room and at the Dallas Flea. SO, it looks like Cash and I are headed to First Monday. Wish me luck!

{Wednesday...9+ Months}

Cash Swing

Cash Swing

Hi! It's Wednesday! Not that that means anything, but the week is more than half way over, so there's that,... :)

Last week I took Cash to the park because we've been having this AWESOME weather here in Dallas. We tested out the swing and he wasn't a fan on that first try. I took him back this week and he LOVED it! I guess he was just having a bad day last week. He hung out in that swing for like half an hour and giggled and smiled and admired all the other kids playing. It was so sweet and these are quite possibly the cutest pictures I have gotten of him! I will mark this a nine month post,.. even though he was nine months like two weeks ago. What's new??

NINE months:

22 pounds
30 inches
crawling, climbing, pulling, scooting, about to be walking
teething,... still
but no teeth
loves keys, balls of yarn & the swings
wearing 12 month clothing
playing with his fav toy "Elefun ball popper" EVERYDAY, and at like 6 am.
Clapping when I say "YAY"
waving backwards when I say "BYE BYE"
raising his arms when I tell him he's "SO BIG"

The sweetest little 9 month old I know. I'm pretty lucky.

Dallas Flea
In addition to chasing my baby around, I'm currently preparing for Paper Box Quilt Co.'s debut at The Dallas Flea!!! That's right! I will be setting up a booth and selling my items in PERSON! I'm a little nervous about being ready in time, but also super excited at the same time. I am planning to have quilts, pillow covers, mini quilts/table toppers, crochet dish cloths, wall decor, bunting, pot holders, clothespins, some small paper items,.... I think that's it,... for now,... SO, if you're in the area and want to stop in to see me, mark your calendar!! April 21 in the South Side building downtown. I will be among a TON of awesome vendors so you will have PLENTY to look at, shop & admire. Are there any local readers out there??? Any already planning to attend the Flea?? I would love to meet you!

The final thing on my Wednesday agenda is this cute little hutch! I found this on Craigslist for $30 and I plan on using it in my booth set-up at the Flea. I thought it was a bargain! Gotta love Craigslist.

What draws you to a booth at a flea market/craft show?? Does the set-up matter?? Would you pass up a booth that didn't have a pretty/unique set-up no matter what they were selling?? Just curious. I think I am more attracted to pretty booths. Is that bad? I might pass up the most beautiful handmade goods because I couldn't see past the card table they were sitting on. It's the same on Etsy. If the picture is bad quality or effortless I almost always skip it. Does that make me an Etsy/Flea market snob?? I think it might. I'm a little ashamed. BUT at the same time, I like it when people make an effort to draw me in. Make me want to step into your booth. Right?? Oh man,... I've just made myself even MORE nervous. Crap. Gotta go. I have to plan out how to make you want to step into my booth.
