Holiday Market Preview

Two markets to go and the 2013 season is over.

It has been fun.  Tiring.  Exciting.  Long.  Encouraging.  Overwhelming.

These last two are the ones I'm looking forward to the most!  The vibe is very different with the holiday markets.  Everyone is cheery and excited for the festivities coming ahead.

I can't wait to do Kane County November 2nd and 3rd and Three French Hens November 15th and 16th.  I will admit I'm a little nervous for Three French Hens.  This will be our first time and so, new territory.  You do feel a little lost at the beginning and set up will be harder since we've never done a show there before.

Here is a preview of some holiday items we will be selling.  Tell me what you think!

Happy Monday and enjoy your week!

Give Thanks and Holiday Banners

Hi Everyone!

So, is it as cold by you as it is here in Chicago?  We went from summer, to a bit of fall then straight to winter! Already all bundled up in scarves, gloves and the heavy coats. 


Is summer almost here yet???

I had the pleasure of making a custom banner for Marie with Made Lovely M&M.  They are also local and will be setting up a booth at the Kane County market in November.  Their first time there!  You should go by and check them out at Made Lovely M&M on Facebook or Made Lovely M&M's website.

Marie sent me some pictures of the custom banner I made for her.  It looks great on her LOVely mantel.  LOVe the fall decor!

If you're interested in a banner for the upcoming holidays come on over to my Etsy shop and see what I have available.  Bungalov's Etsy shop is HERE!  I've been busy putting all sorts together!  I also do custom banner orders if you have something in mind you would like made.

Here are a few snapshots.

Cold or not hope you all have a LOVely day!

Catching Up

WOW.  It really has been a while.  Last time I said hello was in July.  Feels like yesterday.  Summer is gone.  Fall is here.  Yay!  My second fav time of the year.  LOVe the smells, colors, sweaters and hot coffee.  We've even already gone apple picking, which is what I LOVe the most about fall time.  And maybe all my Yankee Candles I burn thru...

So much to catch up on.

Annie turned one in July.  15 months now.  Getting so big and always very happy.  Walking all over the place.  Says Mama, Dada, Kona, mine, hi (more too just can't think of them all.).  LOVes to shake her heard no telling us the things she does NOT want.  Points at everything.  Already throws fits.  Eek.

Bub started kindergarten.  Yikes.  She's lost one tooth, on the verge of loosing another, and has a third and fourth loose.  Time sure flies!  They get big so fast.  Sometimes it just feels so weird touching her hands and feet and knowing how small they once were.

I've grown another year older.  No happy dance here.  I didn't mind turning 30 but the last few years not so good.  Does it get better?  Or worse?  Who knows!  Wish I enjoyed my twenties more instead of always wishing I were older.  Kicking myself now, huh...

Still busy working on shows.  That is why blogging for me has taken a back seat.  Something had to give.  I needed to focus my time on my family and getting things ready.  Two more to go before the season ends.  Kane County is November 3rd and 4th and the Three French Hens holiday show in Morris on November 15th and 16th.  If you are local please try to come out and support the end of our season!

So, what is going on with you all?  Anything new and exciting?  Look forward to being back in touch!
