Handmade Monday: Backyard Boutique

Want to see some awesome handmade items? If you're in Lubbock, come check out the Backyard Boutique this Saturday, November 15, 9am to 6pm at the Maxey Community Center at 4020 30th Street.

I had the opportunity to help promote the event this morning on Fox 34's Look Around Lubbock program. It was so fun and surprisingly not-terrifying. Ashley Claster was so much fun to work with, and I really liked getting a sneak peek of some of the items that will be up for sale this weekend.

I had to wake up at 4:30am to get to the recording on time. I put on a full face of makeup, but forgot mascara. Oops. My voice sounds ragged and, also, my favorite slouchy sweater is not as flattering as I thought. But. My first morning news stint was awesome! Thanks again to the ladies at Backyard Boutique and Fox 34 for this opportunity. I had a blast!

FO Friday: Woolies Galore!

I put some new woolies in my Etsy shop a few days ago. I'm attending a cloth diaper event next week here in Lubbock, so I've been knitting a few more woolies as fast as I can. I've got some blue/burgundy shorties on the needles right now. I'm an inch in to the first leg and I'm hoping to knock the rest out tonight!

(Also: I have to get some posterboard. All those stripes back to back are making me a little queasy!)
