Annnnyyyyways, take a seat. This is going to be a long one!
I've been busily preparing for a bunch of big events.. events that have now passed since I originally started typing up this blog post (yeah, that's how long I've been trying to get this done!). We had a super busy weekend! I had a photoshoot on Saturday with some local gals to showcase some of the vintage dresses I have collected and the accessories I have been making. On Saturday evening we had people over to watch the UFC fight and I made some snacks and whatnot. On Sunday, Jessica and I went to the flea market and opened up the "official/permanent" Paper*Cakes Booth and that went well too! Photos will be coming from these events soon :)
We have all kinds of friends and family visiting this summer, and a few weddings to attend (one is next weekend and I am doing makeup for the wedding party). My husband's best friend is coming home after being in the army for months - he is about to move away to Ontario with his wife Jenn and I will be sad to see them both go. Some childhood friends of my Mom's are visiting and we will all be doing fun touristy PEI things, which I am so excited about! Not to mention all of the other friends and acquaintences coming back to PEI for the summer - and then in the fall our best Calgary friends Paul and Alma will be coming.
Jude is turning into such a little man.. which is adorable and funny and sweet but at times tiring and frustrating and even painful when he accidently hurts me lol :) I feel time blurring and my sleep is seriously lacking. I've been trying to get a haircut since april and feel perpetually 5 steps behind everything but life is very good! My ankle is still broken, I am having surgery in August and need to get things finished up before then. Matt has sporting events all the time and has become really involved with work which is fun.
With all of the flea market prep (like spraypainting) I have ended up also fixing up items around my home and finally hanging up prints and decor items I have been planning for ages. Here is a shot of the little montage on my living room wall:
So in conclusion.. I may be more "absent" on a personal level in the coming weeks, but don't worry, I am still here reading posts and comments and posting new items and shipping orders and all of that fun stuff, I just don't have as much time to be as "present" online. I will be re-doing the blogs a little and debuting a new Paper*Cakes crafts website where the design team, tutorials, and anything crafty related will live. I have been posting a lot of photos on flickr daily so if you're missing me please add me as a contact!
Lots of X's and O's
PS: Keep watching today - I will be posting the design team in a couple of hours and roundups from the past week or so later today! The shop will also get an update soon! xo
