Oh my gooness, where has the time gone? It's already November. I have been very busy with my Boys Football schedules. Being a Football Mom is time consuming. With all the Taxi-ing around, cooking, laudry, photography, game watching...It may as well me a full time job! But, needless to say, I am having a great time. I spent some time creating Team Necklaces for some Mom's with their son's numbers on them, and some School Logo Earrings.
My oldest son's season is now over. They did not do very well in the play offs, but I think he had a fun and good season. We have ordered his letter jacket, which he is excited about. We had it custom made. It should be here in 6 weeks. Just in Time for Christmas. I cried while we were ordering it. I know he was embarassed but I couldn't help it. He just looks so old! He just got his first job. He will be working at Aeropostle for the Holiday Season. He's such a handsome kid, I am sure he will sell lots!
Weston's Team is still going strong! These 12 year old's are tough kids. They made it to the play offs for the Championships. So, practice has gotten intense. Weston is struggling with some back issues but I think he will make it through the season. He is a busy little man. Working hard at his Middle School as a Student Body Officer and Taking Photo's in his spare time. I will have to post some of his work. He really has an "eye" for photography!
We had the kids pictures taken with their Jersey on together. They turned out really nice. I've been saying that I was going to do it every year. I decided that this better by the year. Next year Brandon will be a Senior and I am sure it will be hard to get them together to get it done. I am so glad we did it!!
I also traveled back to Wisconsin for a few days and did a Fall Festival and Craft Fair. I shared a booth with my Sister'n law. Together we did really well. I was pleased. Well worth the trip. My trip was paid for and I got to visit with my neice and nephews. She makes Hairbows and Accessories for little babies and girls. If you have time, you should check out her website. It's http://www.ittybittyclippy.com/. I came home with some great Flower Clips for me. They look great attached to my winter knit visor beanie. I've had loads of compliments on them. I even got one in the boys school colors to wear to the games. SO CUTE!
So...now that things are slowing down a little, I am starting to get back into my blogging, revamping and adding new items to my websites (http://www.howcharmingbymichelle.com/ and http://www.1989michelle.etsy.com/)
and creating new ideas and designs. Currently, I am working with some naural brass materials making earrings. If you scroll down to the bottom of my blog page you can see some of my designs that are available in my Etsy Shop. Just click on the photo for more information on that item.
Thanks for stopping by!! :)
