handmade market

i've been so busy this week! i had a few custom wallet orders to complete earlier in the week. both turned out super cute.

i had to take wes to the dentist yesterday. he doesn't have a car and it's not easily accessible by public transportation, so i had to sit there for 2 hours!! at least i had a good magazine to read!

 i've been sewing for the handmade market at the empty bottle this weekend! super excited!
next weekend is the urban folk circuit at the grafton pub, so i have more sewing to do next week!

i'm stocking up on pouches, but i'm waiting on a zipper order, so i couldn't get many made. i also sewed some more coin pouches because most of them sold in my etsy shop already! they are so cute. i want to make one for myself, but i have to figure out what fabric to use!

in other news, we put an offer on a house we looked at last weekend! i'm excited to hear if  we will get it! here is a photo from one of the bathrooms:

ok, i'm kidding about that one. but that was one of the bathrooms in a house we looked at. you can see my reflection in the wallpaper! whut?! crazy!

i will keep you posted on the house. if you are in the chicago area, make sure you stop by the handmade market on saturday!

busy busy bee

I have been a little busy this week! I have a bunch of custom orders and I keep thinking about our vacation in a little over a month! I have so much shopping to do for our trip. this is what I've purchased so far:

I haven't worn one in YEARS, I will need some cover-ups.

these are from old navy. I bought two of the same style, one in purple and one in the plaid.

this cute little backpack for the beach that wes actually ended up getting me for my birthday:

little marc jacobs bag from zappos

I also bought this super cute dress to wear for the wedding we are going on the trip for.
it took me so long to get this dress. it kept selling out!

rising from the sea dress at modcloth

and these sandals to go with the dress:
rocket dog luscious wedge from delia*s

I still need to get some dresses and cover-ups to wear. I will keep you posted on future purchases. I love shopping, I just wish I had more money to do so!

we are going house hunting tomorrow and moving in the next few weeks. more on that later!
have a great weekend!
