Crazy Month

Miss me?

It’s been a crazy month and it’s only going to get crazier as we head into early September.

I’ve been busy at the local Farmer’s market selling (primarily) my jewelry and smaller artwork, this Thursday will be my 3rd week and then I am taking the next week off as we head to the Rockies

camping for our 9th Anniversary.

Once I get back I have Prenatal appointments, another week at the Market and then Munchkin and I fly to New Brunswick to visit family leaving hubby home to hold down the Fort (no pun intended, seeing how we live in Fort Saskatchewan, AB).

He’s offered to take over my table (sweet brave soul he is xox)  at the Last Market for the Season on Sept 5th so treat him nice and buy lots 😉

While all the chaos has been happening I’ve also been busy rearranging my studio and basement in general,

working on a few new paintings which I hope to complete when I get back in September

and I also signed up for a big Christmas Marketplace Sale happening on November 30th hosted by the local Chamber of Commerce.

So I’ll also be busy prepping handmade jewelry and art for gifts and stocking stuffers for that event.

But in the mean time I hope to have a few weeks of relaxing with family.

As a side note, I have cut a few prices on earrings and what not in my Etsy store so there’s no better time to shop 🙂

Hubby and I went away camping in Banff for the long weekend. Much needed R&R/alone time was had.

Although, as is standard with my luck, it rained and snowed. Yes, you did read that right.

Regardless of what you’ve heard, love alone won’t keep you warm at night. Well at least not in a tent, during said rain and snow without some good blankets and sleeping bags. Aside from the chilliness, it was quite enjoyable.

Anyway, the whole reason I was posting wasn’t to tell you about my weekend but to show you the first finished installment in the “Life Simplified” series. I was racking my brain over what to title each of the pieces and I realized that I’m doing a series called “Life Simplified” so I should focus on the basics. Since the series involves couples, the basics should be relational.

So what’s one of the major needs in a relationship? To make it easier for my female readership (who will instinctively say something more metaphysical) I’ll give you a hint. What would your man “honestly” answer? Yup, you guessed it. I’m starting the ball rolling with sex! Continue reading “#1 of Life Simplified”
