Thank you, Quincy! Also, a new doggo!


Hey friends!  It's been a while since I updated the blog, so thought I'd pop in and say HOWDY! I'm having fun enjoying a really busy season.  My days are full and crazy and I'm striving to get a lot of things done at once.  I fall into bed with that nice, exhausted feeling...and when my head hits the pillow, I'm out like a light.  Ha!  Over the weekend, we attended the Quincy Maker's Market, in Quincy, Illinois.  It was an easy drive, only a couple of hours, and it was a lovely event.  I made several new friends and contacts, and we were blessed with the LOVELIEST weather!  I mean, PERFECT! 

The highlight of my day was when a grandma and her granddaughter bought a couple of my scrappy fabric crowns!  The girl got "weirdo" and the grandma got "shenaniganizer." They plopped them on their heads and walked around the rest of the show with them!  I regret not getting a photo of them.  It was the cutest thing ever!!!!  It's got me excited to make more of those crowns! 

In other news.......drumroll please.........

We've adopted a new doggo!!!  His name is Otis Ray Sweetiecakes!  He's a young chocolate lab, who has been on a journey......major surgery (hence the cone) and having to say goodbye to his original family.  We saw one of our friends was fostering him. And when we heard his story, we just had to meet him.  He is the sweetest boy!!! We have spent the past week bonding and overseeing his recovery from his procedure.  And we have just fallen in love. 

He loves hanging out with Dad in his office.  There's a big couch to stretch out on.  He loves walkies and snacks (of course) and butt scratches.  He loves bones and tennis balls, and he's sweet as can be with our yellow lab, Callie Mae.  She is getting used to having a brother again.....haha....but has been very kind and patient with him.  

The house feels complete again.  We are looking forward to years of fun and frolicking ahead. 
I hope you are also having fun and frolicking on this lovely June day!  More soon!  Cheers!!!
