Well, Handmade Parade is over and for a few days life is going to be peaceful until I start getting ready for Baz Biz and the Maker Faire. Sacramento Craft Mafia and Missy will have booths and Handmade Parade and little lovelies handmade will have a small presence there as well.
Saturday night after things had died down from HP and the yard was (somewhat) back to normal, we had friends over for dinner and margaritas. Nothing like spaghetti and margaritas to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. What can I say, I was tired and didn't feel like cooking or shopping for food, so we ate what Aaron could make without too much assistance.
Sunday I woke up not feeling 100% (no, it wasn't the margaritas) and stayed home from church with monkey boy. I think I just needed to sleep in, because I felt so much better after, that I actually decided to try to tackle my ridiculously messy craft room. After working on it for a few hours it looks not much better. I had layers and layers of stuff piled on my table. I need to get everything put away and dealt with so that I can get in there and create without being bogged down by clutter. I'm hoping that someday some organizational "bug" will get me and I'll be a neat freak. Ha.
Back to the craft room and more organizing. Oh and the cute little bottle above is made by the amazing Vallen of Queenly Things. Go tell her she needs to open an etsy shop!

Your a crack-up little lovely. I can barely balance my checkbook, how would I manage an etsy shop??? Oh, you'll be my accountant? Okay then!

I see you recovered nicely from the big day. Food, drink, sleep. That's all it takes!

I saw those bottles on her blog and loved the idea of using Sorry game pieces as bottle tops. great idea.

Hey, I'm heading down to the Maker Fair too - love the blogger-meeting potential! The Handmade Parade looked like such fun, though I cannot believe you entertained after, impressive stamina!
