Disappointing My 4 Year Old

I have been planning a little birthday party for my little boys 5th birthday. Well as the RSVPs start pouring in the answer is no after no. None of his little friends are able to go. Only one little girl and my 2 year old niece. I have already sent my $50 non-refundable deposit to the party place. I am so upset right now. Not as much for the money as for having to tell my little guy that his birthday party is not going to happen.

I know that life is full of disappointments but this really sucks right now.

You can see the really cute invites that I sent out if you scroll down two posts.

Craft shows can be dangerous

Who would have thought that doing a craft do sell your wares and make a little of moola would be so dangerous?

I went to a show last week to scope out the area and the crowd and to connect with other indie artist and above all to buy myself something cute and unique and handmade. I got to talking to one of the vendors and he was telling me about a situations they had to deal with earlier that day. A swarm of bees invading the space of another vendor.


Gives you the creepy crawlys all over your skin huh?

On July 19 2002 I gave birth to my last child. This year this little boy is turning 5 and it is a little bit depressing for me. I think that any mom knows what I am talking about. You want them to stay little and cute for ever. But I guess that is not possible so I got on the task of making his invitations for the party.
The final result is pretty nifty dont you think?


My little guy was very pleased and it made his day to put a stamp on them and mail them out to his little friends.

Living smack dab in the middle of Southern California is pretty sweet because we are either 1 hour away from the mountains or 1 hour away from the Pacific Ocean. This passed weekend hubby got a long deserved vacations and on Thursday we headed northeast up to beautiful Big Bear Mountain. We walked in and out of the little shops and ate at an Italian restaurant.

The next day we headed for Huntington Beach and the little ones got to splash around in the Pacific Ocean while I did some sun worshiping. They can literally spend hours splashing around in the waves and they don't even come back to eat.

Happy Independents Day

Since it is my beautiful country's birthday I think that I will have a good ol' American sale in my shop. Through midnight Pacific time on Sunday July 8, everything in both of my shops is 20% off of any purchase total. Start Christmas shopping early or just treat yourself. Put July4 in the message section and do not pay until I send you an updated invoice. Happy 4th.
