Fair's, Fair's everywhere!

It fall fair , and festival time, and I'm lovin every local honey booth, antique treasure hunt, and food truck cuisine galore!
Alas there are only so many this jingling pocket of change can peruse, but we did hit a few. One we ( me and Vintage Honeybee, my sister) recently enjoyed was Green Tree Festival . We were sorely disappointed the homemade chicken and dumpling's were sold out, but we still had a jolly good time slurping juicy sno-cones , and devoured fresh strawberry shortcakes. Oh also THE best authentic root beer ever!! Enough about the food eh? The craft's were great, and we loved the 1800's village set up with awesome craftsman, and of course we love the book fair too! I hope your fall is allowing you time to enjoy a festival or two! Happy Thurs!

Rosie Posey Tote

  Once upon a time    I purchased a couple simple cotton totes for a project for my nieces, but we ended up doing bleach pen t-shirts instead( I'll be sharing that later this week).
Well after they went home toting their new T's, I was still in a makin mood so I cracked open the new box of  Pentel FabricFun Pastel's and went into grown up coloring mode , that is after I sketched some flowers on my tote. I had in mind a softer, pretty bag than the others I own, and I was abundantly pleased by the waxy, vivid colors that I was getting. 
I finished around 2:00 am ( cause that's how I roll baby), then I can't hardly roll outta bed, but hey I have a custom tote to show for my puffy eyed look eh?!

Oh and one final thing : the colors need to be heat set with an iron and a piece of paper which gives the art that over all softness I wanted...
Happy as a clam I am!

Sunday day of rest and play

I'm not gonna lie, I look forward to a Sunday afternoon snooze on my antique down filled chaise lounge. I only need forty five minutes and I feel refreshed and rested for the upcoming week . After nappy time we usually eat leftover's and work on a enjoyable project . Skye has been having a blast making his own paper Minecraft characters. App's that are printable are Minecraft skins, and Paper Studio. It's great to watch your kiddo print, clip, and assemble these little figures for literally hours of constructive entertainment.
Meanwhile I had an artsy urge to make a floral tote with some new fabric color sticks ( essentially heat binding oil pastels). I'm still working on it but I will give a peek... 
Phooey to Monday, but until the clock strikes midnight, I say Viva La Sunday's!

Will show completed project on the morrow!
