I had to document this. All three working together making apple turnovers. This lasted for about ten minutes then they were all back to fighting and hating each other.
Oh and the apple turnovers were wonderful!

We started out our Saturday at a local indoor Farmers Market held at Parkers Clapsaddle Farm. It was held inside this great old barn. There weren't too many vendors but we did get some apples that Kimberly later made us a wonderful pie and some apple butter. The girls from Zhoozh, Inc were there too. They create wonderful clothing and accessories from various fabric and old clothing.

I bought this awesome neck art. I just LOVE it!

Kimberly picked out this amazing barrette. She loves it and later told me there were some other ones she liked. SO we will defiantly be buying more!

Of course Makayla couldn't walk away empty handed. She fell in love with all the doll houses built by Scrap Wood Furniture. Here is the one she got with Donald who build all these wonderful creations. He does have a website , you can check it out HERE.

Later after Chris was home from work we decided to take a ride up north. It was so pretty out!

This is our uncle and aunts farm just love how the snow is on all the trees.

We had a wonderful Saturday! We still haven't (Makayla has gone twice) went sledding and it is just too cold today.

I'm Back

It's been a nice break. Unfortunately I have been staying busy, too busy. Still getting up at 5:30 to go to the gym each morning. Getting ready for Roller Derby! Finished up some custom work as well. Painted the three tables below. Created a sign for a local salon. Sorry about the coloring I guess I still haven't figured out my camera yet.

A personalized rocker for the sweetest girl!

Bowling with Makayla and all her "boy" friends.

Lots of time at wrestling matches and tournaments. Jonathan was the winner in his weight bracket here at VVS.

I am back and hope to be posting again! Now I need to catch up with all of you!

My Goals

Or maybe resolutions? I have been jotting some things I want to focus on this year.
I am going to take a shot at CNY Roller Derby. I am so excited about this. I will be taking a 4 week class mid February and then another 12 week class. Even if I never make it on a team at least I can say I gave it a shot!
I am a newly appointed to the Board of Directors for the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts. I want to really focus on how I can help the organization grow. It really is wonderful to have a center in our community while so many others have lost theirs.

I want to focus more on custom orders.
Painted furniture

and signs

Of course focus on making the 2nd annual Chicks show another success!

I plan on downsizing my space at The Shops at 25 West. I love it there and don't intend on leaving but I find myself stressing about having new pieces there and having my space arranged and perfect and focusing less on painting and creating. I think it is time for me to downsize a bit so I can get back to really enjoying what I do. Of course I will be selling goodies at The Chicks Show and possibly the Garlic Festival.

So those are some of my plans this year! Of course I will share everything along the way!
