Show & Tell Friday

It's window painting season!  I really enjoy painting windows for the Shortline Express stores.  Here are some of the windows from this year.   

Working on Santa. 
I don't know why but I really like the North Pole Sign. 

What's winter without a few penquins...they allows travel in pairs.   
Banners were new for them this year. 
Thanks to my sidekick, Chris for helping me with this project again this year.

Diner Windows

The Southwest Diner in Boulder City s ready to ring in the season.  Happy parade goers will enjoy the windows as well this weekend adding to the festive atmosphere. 

Happy snowmen ready to greet you. 
I am really liking these new trees...the diner is the first to get them. 
Holly in the snow flurry. 
Southern windows got a forest of trees and snow flurry holly.
I made these flowers for the planter boxes in the spring.  I wonder if they'll be coming down for the winter?
White Hydrangeas and Vendela roses for the birde.

Thank you

Thank you to all my family, friends, and those I've never met who have given themselves to serve our country.  Your sacrifice, service and pride in our country is noticed and honored by myself and millions of others.  I am so grateful for all of you.

Cute Snowmen

Check these guys primitive, rustic and adorable.  My friend bought one at the Tuachan craft show last weekend.  They are from The Rustic Rose in St. George, UT.  So stinkin' cute!  Just had to share.

Art in the Park 2011

I just realized I never shared pictures with you from Art in the Park.  It was a good show for us again.  We love the spot we have, and have been fortunate to have the same spot for the last 5 years.   This year we rented tents instead of setting up our own...good move.  We sold out of everything tall/large or on a post.   Enjoy the pictures and please continue to shop with us, we really appreciate it.

Reno Recap

I just have to say I am so thankful we drove up on Thursday instead of my standard 3:30am Friday departure time.  There were several delays due to road construction that put us about 2 hours behind on the way up there.  It was much less stressful Friday during set up as well...which I attribute to a good night's sleep. 

The crowds lined up early for Friday night.  The best children or strollers.  One of my best and most loyal customers, Heidi and her daughter arrived at 4pm for the 5:30 opening just so they could be first in line. 

Here are a few pictures of my booth to share.  It's never quite as polished as I'd like it to be since there is only 4 hours to unload and set up in the courtyard.  But it looked okay.  By Saturday afternoon we were removing the center display pieces and re-arranging trying to make it look full again.  Fall/Halloween were the best sellers for me. 
I enjoyed the time I spent with my best friend, Diane and time shared with my brother-in-law, John and his wife, Rhonda.  It's nice to come back to a home instead of a hotel.
Thanks to the ROTC and other students for helping unload, tear down, and load the trailer.  It makes driving home 8 hours possible that night.  We arrived home at 2am.  I'm looking forward to next year already.

Reno, here I come.

It's that time of year again.  I am once again participating in the McQueen Craft Faire in Reno, NV this weekend.  It's a great show!  I love being in the cooler weather, visiting my hubby's brother and family, and supporting the Booster Club for McQueen High School.  Look for me there, I'll be in the courtyard.

Fall Eye Candy

This time of year I wish I lived where there were real seasons.  I love how leaves change.  I try to head to Cedar Mtn in southern Utah but I'm pretty sure I missed it this year with the cold fron thtat came through last week.  A bit of fall eye candy will have to suffice.

Stop by and visit Florals by Crystal to see what's happening for me when it comes to flowers, weddings, and anything floral.  It's still a work in progress but it's up and running.

It's our anniversary!

Twentynine years ago today my high school sweetheart and I got married in the church I grew up attending...where my parents still worship today.  I met Timm when I was 15, he was coaching an LDS softball team at the park across the street from my home with one of his friends.  He had to wait until I turned 16 to go out on a date, and asked me to marry him the day I graduated high school...sprained ankle, crutches and all.  Fifteen months later we got married...around all the groomsmen hunting trips. 
I am so thankful this man in my life.  He completes me.  We've had our challenges like everyone else.   We've been through thick and thin.  In all that time, we've raised two wonderful boys, practically felt like we raised a hundred more through the Boy Scout program, camped and traveled, worked and played. 
Happy Anniversary Timm...I love you  more than life itself.

Bridal Bouquets

As if I'm not busy enough, I'm now an independent contractor for a local reception/event hall as their florist.  It's been good so far, only part time but that's okay.  I need to get better about taking photos of completed work.  I thought I would share some of the one's Idid remember to photos of.

Show and Tell Friday

Whew, it's been a busy week.  I caught up on some household , met with a bride, and relaxed a bit.  Timm's been working on the dining hall all week.  I'm pleased to say that the outside lights are installed and working.  The facia is installed and the first coat of paint has been put on.  Last night we worked on the interior window trim.  It's looking awesome.  I've gotten 8 ghosts and 8 witches painted.  Chris has cut wood for me so I have more time to paint.  Oh, and we've had rain! 

I thought I would share some photos of our booth at Harvest Festival from last weekend.  Enjoy and have a great weekend.
