Wow, it has been way to long since I got a chance to write on this blog….I got very sick and was so nice to share it with everyone. I am just that kind of nice Mom. Once you grow up watching Sesame Street and learn that sharing is good, you can’t go back! In the thought of sharing, I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for another amazing year. Thank you for the continued support. Thank you for caring about the Earth. Thank you for being your wonderful self and that can only make the world a better place. Thank you from the bottom and the top, and really just all of it, my heart. You are so amazing to help us continue to grow. We now have over 700 followers on facebook, new people liking us all the time on twitter, instagram and pintrest. Continued support on Etsy and our website. I really can’t say thank you enough. Here are some of the hightlights of the year:
Lets start with some of the fun boutiques or festivals we have been to and just a few pictures of each:
Earth Day at the Ogden Nature Center:
Always a fun place to go. My family and I love to come here. It is always amazing to me that you can find this paradise in the middle of the city. What a fun event every year. This year we had a bunch of rain to start off the day so I don’t really have a ton of pictures but it was an amazing day!
some of the items we had here for the first time:
and some of our stunning recycled/ upcycled clothes:
Earth Jam is always a fun event to go to. The music is great and the people are nonstop amazing to watch, talk and dance with. Of course, we always love to have our booth next An Array of Artistry. Not only is she super talented and sweet but she watches my booth so I can go pee!
