September Shenanigans

The last day of September is a good day to talk about what you did in September.  Mostly I worked a lot, but I did some other good stuff too!

Felix is officially in Kindergarden.  He catches a bus at 7:25, which means I get up at the exact time of 6:18 most mornings.  Sometimes Chainsaw does it, but usually it's me.  One morning I had the deluxe pleasure of waking up to this sight:

It was glorious!  I've also caught some fantastic sunsets lately.  The clouds have been doing a great job of catching those last rays of sunlight.

Before you start thinking that I spent all month taking pictures of the sky (you'd be right), I have a few other things to tell you about also.  Chainsaw went on a weeklong road trip, so I took the week off.  I don't make enough doubloons to make it worth my while to pay a babysitter while I work.  I had a girls night the first Saturday he was gone.  I didn't happen to take any pictures at the actual event (and for good reason, haha!), but I did get Felix addicted to proscuitto.

The next day we went to the Gem and Mineral Show in Denver.

The rooms with the phosphorescent minerals reminded me of Electric Lady Land so hard.  Electric Lady Land is my favorite of all places in Amsterdam and I highly recommend you check it out.  Not ashamed to admit that drugs increase it's awesomeness, but it is almost just as mind blowing without them (done it!).  I tried to rob a picture from their website, but it doesn't work so well.  So do me a favor and click on that link.

We went to Boulder Falls and had the whole place to ourselves. Zero idea why this picture uploaded itself in such a tiny manner.  Sorry.

And this is getting pretty long.   I might also be out of pictures that are not of the sky.  Oops!

Don't forget that this is the last day of my 20% off sale.  Enter coupon code THANKYOU20 while checking out of the Hot Butter shop.

100 Sales!

I am so excited to announce that I sold my 100th item in my etsy shop earlier this month!  It's taken me a bit to celebrate because I wanted to get my shop stocked, but the time is now!  Without further ado, I'd like to offer everyone 20% off anything in my etsy shop as a thank you for your love and support.  Just use the coupon code THANKYOU20 when checking out.  I have a craft fair Saturday morning, so this sale runs until Friday night.

Back to business.

My creating hiatus is officially over.  I've been making tons of  awesome new pouches, such as these beauties:

I also made four Half-Moon Handbags from Keyka Lou's awesome pattern, which appears to be out of print.

I might have accidentally kept this one for myself.  Oops.

And this one was claimed by a friend, but I have two other adorable half-moon bags in my shop.

These aren't newly created, but at long, long, long last I have gotten some photos of them that aren't the worst ever.  They aren't very good, but that's beside the point.

I do have more messenger bags, but those three were the only winners in the photo department so far.  It's like the universe wants me to keep them all for myself, but I already have one!

Anywho, Horseshoe Craft and Flea Market this weekend in the Highlands.  Be there or be square (or too far away to come).

Here's some crazy doubloon eyes as a parting gift:
