We've decided to take a little trip. I know it's short notice, but a tanned, exhausted and oh so excited Trintge came home from summer camp today and we decided we needed to go have some family time before school starts in just a little over a week!! It's been a crazy busy summer for all of us and we need to unwind together. Play games. Swim. Relax. Roast marshmellows. Sit around a camp fire. Read just for the sake of reading. (and it's not school related) Just be.
So we are leaving on Friday for a week in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina where it's only 84 degrees and just beautiful. I'm really looking forward to it. I need a little more time to prepare too for the fact that Trin will be starting high school and Mackenzie will be a junior. I'm nervous for my baby to start high school. Ugh.
So, I'm finishing up a marathon of shipping orders and then we're off. All orders placed from Thursday, July 31st-Sunday August 10th will BEGIN shipping on August 11th. Again, sorry for the short notice, but you have to grab some family time when you can get it, right? I'll check in though, so if you need something, just shoot me an email!
I also wanted to tell you about a fun little date night I had with my wonderful husband last week too. We went to go see Pat Benetar in concert! This is a not so great photo of the beautiful Tennesse Theater where she put on an outstanding performance!! I admit, I'm a rocker girl at heart. I have loved Pat since I was a little girl. I remember getting a bubblegum card with the lyrics to "Hit me with your best shot", and singing them over and over. I loved her especially as a teenager. Do you remember how when you are a teen age girl you have music you listen to when you break up with your boyfriend, and music you listen to when you are mad at your parents? Pat's music was that music for me. It's so funny even after all of these years, I was able to sing along and know every word by heart! And she put on an outstanding show! She rocked just as hard as she did all those years ago!
I was also able to take a little time and work on this collage for a dear friend of mine for her birthday. This collage was fun. Love how the floral tissue paper just added subtle detail over the bing card, and then the layering of the dotted swiss on top of that. The collage and several other things are on their way to her, hope she loves it all.
One last thing before I go. This sweet little doll arrived in the mail this week. A purchase from ebay. She's really quite amazing. She's a very small doll, very delicate, and her details are amazing!
Her dress is made of a heavy velvet, and layers of lace and trim. Her hair is piled high in the back. I don't know a lot about her other than that she is French and gorgeous. Love my dolls. :0)
Oh! I also have to tell you about Lollishops!
Lollishops is the wonderful concept of Sadie. It is going to be a cottage style, romantic, feminine friendly market place. I think it will be just wonderful to be able to shop and find all of the sweet things we all love to buy in just one place! It's not open yet, but I just know it's going to be fabulous! Lots of talented artists going in there! You can check it all out right here!
I hope you have a wonderful week! Enjoy time with your families!
Much love, Cerri xo
