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?

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
