2013: My Year of Changes

Upon review of my life over the past year, I have found it to be a year filled with lots of firsts, lasts, hellos, goodbyes, and forevers. This is my 2013... My year of changes:

Started 2013 visiting Chicago for the first time.
Celebrated my 5th Wedding Anniversary.
One of the photo's I had done for my husband's anniversary gift.
Celebrated the high school graduation of the eldest son of one of my oldest and bestest with all of my oldest and bestest.
Spent my summer preparing to open my very first Etsy shop.
My first 4th of July at Greenfield Village for a patriotic concert by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra that included live cannon fire and an amazing fireworks show.
My first trip to Mackinaw City, and the UP.
Planned my first themed baby shower.
Joyfully welcomed a new member to the family.
Finally got to say "Hello" to my first Niece/Goddaughter.

Delighted to see the first picture of my first nephew.
I said goodbye to my job of 3 1/2 years, and I had my first table at a craft show.
.

In a year that was filled with ups and downs, lots of firsts, many celebrations, laughs and great memories shared with family and friends, it is also a year that will never be forgotten. It is with very heavy hearts, we had to say a painful goodbye to our loving, funny, smiley, amazing "Dominator".

It is with tears in our eyes, and love in our hearts that you are greatly missed. 
You will be in our hearts forever!

Craft Show Crafting Part 2

Last night my mother-in-law asked me if I'm reading any good books for Advent. Hmmm... Considering that I have been spending 12-14 hours a day making bows and flowers
In all different styles
Brainstorming and designing creative ways to display all my product
 For the Craft Show that is this Saturday
        
And I haven't even taken down my Thanksgiving decorations, or put up my Christmas decorations... As lovely as it sounds to sit down and read a good book, I just haven't been able to fit it in. ;) 

As the big day gets closer, I am getting more excited! If you are in the area, stop by and see us!
