Dustbowl Arts Market
My first outdoors show, whoa nelly. It was so insanely windy words cannot describe, and photos cannot show... Trust me, I was holding on to that tent with all my might :)

I made this string of black and white bunting just in case I couldn't use my curtain. Glad I did! As soon as we hung the wall and curtain it acted like a sail and we could feel the tent start to move (with 40lb. weights on all four legs).

Mice & Monkeys, Buttons & Bags...

Love this :)

A pre-birthday party...

My baby won't be 5 till the 27th but we had his Mario party yesterday, dang you busy April.

"Blue Velvet" jumbo cupcakes as requested. And yes, that's Red Velvet with blue food coloring in place of red... don't ask me, the kid is 4.
Awesome Super Mario Bros figures and little star cookies.
The cookies were a stroke of genius, I must say. Tiny star cutter and regular ole sugar cookie dough. The frosting was your standard powdered sugar/butter/milk recipe tinted yellow. I did make it pretty thin so I could just flip and dip, so they would be nice and smooth. After they were dry I used a tube of black gel icing for the eyes (THAT took a little practice to keep them neat). 

My technically still 4 year old and his Yoshi :)

Little day trip...

Went with Squirt on a field trip to OSU...

On the field at Boone Pickens Stadium and I'm making him stop to take a picture. Geez!

And they got to meet "Mr. Pete" ... ah, 4 year olds are so cute :)

They had the longest discussion on whether or not Mr. Pete was a real person. They never did agree...

Otherwise I'm busy as ever working on my booth for the Dustbowl Arts Market on April 25th. Only feeling mildly stressed and insane, that's good :)

It's crunch time! Dustbowl Arts Market is in 20 days! (eep, what am I doing in front of the computer!)

But since the family insisted on a little Easter I had to oblige :)

She can't take a bad photo :)

He's "trying something new" with his hair :)

Goodness, I want to pluck that little eyelash right off his cheek and wish he never grows a day older :)
