Friday, September 24


Hello, friends, and Happy Friday!  My week has been so weird-- at the beginning I would have sworn to you it was the end, and now that it really is the end, I can't believe how fast it's gone by.  I know, I know... Plus, I finally got back to the gym this week.  Yes, it IS as funny as you would imagine.  I look very pregnant and am surrounded by people trying very hard NOT to look like me.  ;)  No, it really is good, and hopefully I'll be getting some energy back.

Tonight will be dedicated to working, because I have several deadlines in the coming weeks.  Currently, I'm stitching on these:
It's going to be a brontosaurus and stegosaurus couple for a wedding cake.  I've actually almost finished both of them now.  I'll try to take proper pictures tomorrow.

In other news... my friend Aaron opened an Etsy shop.  It looks great and I'm so proud of him.  You should definitely stop by and take a look!
He does beautiful screen printed posters, envelopes, etc.  His shop is called Elkwing Prints.

Other exciting things from this week:
*Peanuts + Candy Corn = Oh my! Every year.  :)
*We've pretty much decided on a name for Aquaman (baby).  I'm not sure when we'll share.
*We are possibly traveling to O'Fallon tomorrow for the Strange Folk Festival.
*I received the sweetest package in the mail from Amanda this week.  :)
*Elsie's in Bust! Can you believe it?!  So proud of her! 

I hope your weekend is wonderful!  I'm off to finish my little (and not-so-little) projects.  xoxo Katie
