country celebrations...

For years, I've been a participant in Campbell Valley's Country Celebrations in beautiful Langley, BC. This year I hadn't planned on being a vendor, but at the last minute, a spot opened up for me.
The weather was beyond amazing. September, you really do dazzle me every year. This was the field in the early morning, with dozens of huge tents already packed with creations and goodies...
My booth was a split adventure, with half dedicated to My Brown Bag Studio, and half to my Jamberry business...




Talking and visiting with customers was a lot of fun, and I was happy to see some favorite creations head off to new homes. Thank you ALL for stopping by to say hello and for shopping with me!

Now the planning and preparing really begins for me... I've officially set the dates for my annual Christmas Open House to be November 28th & 29th... I'll keep you posted!

feeling fallish...

September is my favorite month.

I love the late summer feeling, with hot and sunny afternoons, and a cool breeze coming in the windows at night.

I celebrated my birthday on September second, the day my girls headed back to school. It was bittersweet...Emily is now in grade 12...
...and Julianna, grade 10.
I'm excited for them to see what the year will bring, but I can't help wondering how they got so old? And so TALL?
And then there's me... that birthday, remember?
At least it brought some lovely coffee dates, complete with pumpkin everything from Starbucks. Maybe birthdays aren't so bad after all!
I've started to feel the nudge to get back into a sewing routine, especially since I'm starting to plan my annual Christmas open house.
I have lots of this and that started.
It's always overwhelming, but I'll make it, I'm sure.
I always seem to.
I'm accepting prayers on the matter though, just in case.
