July Fever

Happy Summer! Hope you’re all enjoying the sun and the heat! We just got over a bit of a heat wave here in Southern Ontario, and I’ve been loving every minute of it – I’d rather be hot than cold and shivering any day! July is my most favourite month of all, and I even took a break from doing shows to free up a little time to enjoy it, (before the mad rush of prep in August for FanExpo.)

It’s also my month in the ol’ “Hot Chicks With Mustaches” calendar! Exciting!

I love shows, but it’s been nice to have none to fuss over since Heirlooms in June – which is a show I haven’t yet posted about yet, ahh! So behind. Here it is then! My lovely friend Heather of Needlings was set up right next to me for the day, which we spent mostly fanning ourselves with make shift paper fans (since we were set up inside a greenhouse!) It was definitely a lovely setting! (I blame the humidity for the extra than normal volume in that coif of mine!)

The rest of June was spent working on custom orders, mostly gifts and favours for weddings. I can share a few with you that have already been received, but the others will have to wait! First is a custom portrait tote bag with the couples nicknames, “Jags” and “Grotes:”

And then this mirror (for her) and bottle opener keychain (for him) wedding set:

Hmmm what else have I been up to… well, this past weekend I took a bike ride down to the local Farmer’s Market for some fresh goods and sunflowers ❤ Sunflowers=summer! Every time I walk or bike around with a bouquet of them, people always stop to chat with me or comment on “how summery I look.” It’s super cute! I’ve got a vase of sunflowers in almost every room of the house now. It really brightens up the place, and makes everything just that much cheerier!

I also celebrated my 29th birthday 2 weekends ago! The man friend and I have the same birthday (super weird, I know) so we rented out the top floor of an old British pub for a combined celebration. We also had a few people over to our place first (I love hosting!) for some drinks and snacks! Anyway, it was lots of fun! I was totally spoiled this year, with gifts of wine, mustaches, cat related stuff, and a new dress!

It was nice that so many pals came out to celebrate with us ❤ Here’s me and a few of the nicest gals. I’m the luckiest 🙂

My sweet sweet dear friend Heather of Needlings made me this look-alike plush ‘biskit doll! It’s me in my ‘biskit show outfit! And the size of my hair is pretty accurate! I love lisadoll to pieces and am slightly obsessed with her. (She’s actually sitting next to me as I type this.)

There’s a whole album dedicated to lisadoll here in case you want to see her close up!

Speaking of sweet gifts, I also received this custom ‘biskit mug (top right) from my friends over at Crock A Doodle Paint Your Own Pottery Studios! So sweet! 😀 I use it every day!

Anyway, that’s about it for now!I will be at the James North Art Crawl in Hamilton on August 9th from 7-11 (out front of Christ’s Church Cathedral, 252 James), then FanExpo from August 22-25!!!

Have a great week everyone! I’ve got some time off from July 26th until August 6th, and I’ve got my dad’s birthday to celebrate, a wedding to attend, lots of restocking to do, and hopefully I can fit in a beach day or two! It’s going to be jam packed! Can’t wait!

Cupcake Fail & 1954

Friday! Today at work, after the most disappointing snow day of all time (there was a call for a huge winter storm and we woke up to… some rain, and no day off!) we had a cupcake eating challenge, which also turned into a huge fail. Miss T was going to eat SIX cuppies, some with buttercream frosting and some with cream cheese frosting, PILED HIGH for a total of $30 OR a bottle of vintage vino. She went into the challenge with full on energy, but it quickly went downhill and left her feeling sick and defeated.

Here is the super anti-climatic event in photos:

Poor girl. At least it made our Friday a little better. We had a whole team in the lunch room cheering her on, and to be fair she gave it her best – next time just needs to develop a better strategy. No breaks, just mow ’em down. Also, don’t eat a sub before hand. This was good practice for next time! WHAT A CHAMP.
Anyway, here is The Daily Dress – sometimes I just want to party like it’s 1954. I loves me a swing dress for some winin’, dinin’ & dancin’.
