✵ Merry Up ✵

I love this time of year, and love seeing all of everyone else’s lights and trees and yes, even inflatable decorations going up but I can’t seem to get into the mood to actually do any at our house for some reason.

Some of it may have to do with the fact that I scheduled a couple of markets on top of each other and am busy getting ready for them. To be fair, quite a few of the items in the works ARE decorations.

Some of it might have to do with the temperature. But I can’t use that for long as it’s getting back to feeling quite wintry today.

Whatever it is, I’m thankful we’ve been gifted a couple of items that are helping to give our house just a little bit more merry until we can get ourselves a little more into the holiday spirit! 

Get Outside!

IMG-4509We had the best time yesterday at Lu’s Labs Labapalooza! It was a little chilly, well mostly windy, but still a beautiful fall day. [Finally!] Here’s hoping for a few more like it before we tumble into winter temps and darker days. [Full disclosure: I’m not a huge fan of sundown before 5PM.]

One more outdoor market for this year coming up on Thursday! I’m excited to be back in Crystal City, it’s been a while and there weren’t nearly as many food trucks in the mix but there was – and still is – live music to start easing you into the FriYaY mood a little early. Come check out my new works at the final Crystal City Crafts Market for the season.

 

Yo.

Productive day. Tweaked this site, loads simpler than it was before. But so much prettier (if I do say so myself . . .) Oh, and I got a real email to boot. I’m jessica@lepennyj.com now so I’m a real person. Woot. Looking forward to tackling my online shop next – but that’ll be a more involved process and one I’ll get started on AFTER my show on Saturday at Grounded Coffee shop. Come by and say hi if you’re local!
