This Week's 10 Things!

I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday! Mine was especially nice because one of my newest (and best) friend's birthday was yesterday. (Yes, on the 4th of July!) I went over to her house and we grilled out and had a little party and took pictures with her old film camera and it was basically they best thing ever. AND yesterday was reason #1 why this week was awesome!

1.) Ginia's birthday/ the 4th of July!

I also got a chance to start on a produce stand. I had a pack of these little wooden sticks and I wasn't sure what to make with them... so I just started stacking them.

And the above picture is what I got! So I said to myself that they would make really good crates for large produce like pumpkins and watermelons. So then I kept adding to it... And got this-

!!!! And the best part is that it comes apart and I can change how the display looks! Ahhh! It couldn't have worked out better if I'd planned it. So, alas-

2.) The new produce stand has begun! I am still in the process of painting it, but it's coming along great!

3.) We also can't forget about Karine's lovely gifts!

4.) Things at home have started to settle back down! I try not to mention too much of my personal life on here, but about a month ago my dad's truck was stolen. To make a long story short- they found the truck, but it was ruined so it had to be totaled out and it has finally ALL been settled as of today! My dad actually went out today and began looking for a new truck!

5.) I made and listed some new bakery-style cakes! You can see the Etsy listing here if you are interested!

6.) I also made 6 new ombre cakes! I see these everywhere on Pinterest and I just HAD to make some in mini. These are also listed on Etsy, here!

7.) I did a little bit of drawing! I have always loved to draw, but for the past few months I just haven't. So this week I drew some sketches of my friend's cat! I really enjoyed drawing, so who knows? We might see some more soon!

8.) I crocheted a hat! It was for my friend who's birthday was yesterday. And I forgot to take a picture of it all finished! If I think about it I will try to take a picture of it and show you guys later. I was really proud of that thing! haha! :)

9.) I did some playing around with my watermarks/fonts/branding stuff. I am still not totally sure what to call this stuff, but you can see some of the new watermarks on the images in this post! :D

10.) I don't really know what to put for a 10th thing, other than I feel really good about this week! I am gonna fall asleep listening to the rain!

Thanks for stopping by, as always!

P.S. I am just noticing that it is 11:56 PM and I JUST BARELY made it in time! Haha!

  2. Sounds like you had a great week. The little stands are marvellous and look great with all the bread. Sorry to hear about your dad's truck. Your drawings are wonderful...I wish I could draw like that.

    1. Thank you so much! And the drawing... I think I went through a dozen sheets of paper before I started to be pleased by it.

      Thanks, again!

  3. Well, you are a man of many talents I see! Those cakes are adorable. Tell your friend happy belated birthday and tell your dad no fast red monster trucks. LOL
