A Quick Update!

So much is going on lately and I may be able to get my illustration Friday post up later, but for now I wanted to give you all an update on what is happening lately.

*Today is the day they have to have the information in the mail to those that have been accepted into Thursdays on First. For those of you not from this area, it is a huge handmade focused show. We are talking food vendors, Live music, and roughly 15,000 attendees at every Thursday! It is huge and I have been waiting for 2 months to find out if I am in.

*I have started taking photos for pattern packs that will be the main focus in my shop if I do end up getting into Thursdays. I expect that I will be too busy sewing for that to be able to also keep my online shops filled with product. So, you will be able to buy the patterns and make it yourself, or purchase before the first Thursday, or wait till the fall. I will update on that when I find out if I got in!

*My birthday is coming up next week.

*We will be doing a garage sale fundraiser during the city wide garage sale for the American diabetes association and with it a Crazy Elephant open house, so if you are in the Stewartville, MN area keep an eye out for details on our facebook page (

*I am also super excited about the social media boot camp they have been hosting on Artfire. I have gotten a lot of awesome info from it. This week is about blogging and guess who's blog was #4 on the list of interesting blogs? MINE! I have to say that I was really excited about making their list!

So it is a little crazy around here lately and as I mentioned before I am getting organized in my home and business. You can expect to see more posts as I plan on scheduling them out. Is there anything you, my lovely readers would like to see me blog about?

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
