Big News!

As a lot of you know, I've been discussing a large tote bag order with the National Trust for Historic Preservation for their conference in October. Well, I got the order today for 2000 tote bags! Yay for me!

The Birthday..

Thanks to everyone who came out. I've got way too many sweets left over.. it's South Beach sabotage around here today. We had a nice crowd of friends and family and I think everyone had a good time.

Tara made the adorable matryoshka cupcake toppers. Love them!

And see the lovely handmade hat on the table? Kristen (the newest Tulsa Craft Mafia member!) made that.. so fun! Thanks again to everyone and I love my gifts. I can't wait to use them!

The rest of the weekend was a blur, but I know that Sunday held a visit from the family. My aunt, uncle, 2 cousins and their wives, and my cousin's twins stopped by late in the afternoon. What little cuties! Two sets of precious twins in one weekend is a lot of babies! All of these babies and baby happenings are giving me the baby bug..

Expect new projects this week!

Lots to do

Thom asked me tonight why I would want to make all of this food and work so hard on my own birthday. I tried explaining that I really enjoy making treats.. probably more than I even like having a birthday party.

But, I am dying to make some more buttons/mirrors/bottle openers.. Ahh, I'm ready for Monday!

Tonight we ventured to El Guapo's with Tara & Estela before going by the Breast Impressions Gallery Opening.

I'm not sure what was going on here..

Then a stop by Jackie's Liquor Store (Mad Dog Liquor, by the way! On 11th, between Memorial & Mingo.. you should buy all of your booze there) for some Raspberry Liqueur (for the truffles!).

Almost my birthday....
