Quiet Monday update

On a sunny day with temps in the mid-40's last week, I posted on instagram that I was feeling in a spring like mood and started stocking the booth with some spring like items. Today, I am sitting in my home office with a space heater blowing directly on my fingers so I can type and a blizzard blowing outside my front window. 
We Michiganders can hardly complain this year. Our late start to winter was NOT under-appreciated by me and I have to admit I have had no problem hunkering down with some good books in the evening and enjoying some times of hibernation. 
In fact, my friend DC, just texted me 10 minutes ago to check in on me...."You ok? You've been awfully quiet". :) 
I love having friends that check in with me and as loud as I can be so much of the time, I am thankful for seasons in Michigan where it is okay to come inside and be quiet. 
This loudmouth needs it sometimes. 
Here are a few items in the booth and I am looking forward to a day tomorrow where I might even be able to squeeze in some time to make more product for upcoming Valentine's day. 

Also, just a head's up: Make sure you put February Thursday, Feb. 11 on the calendar. That will be our second annual "Deal with the Dealer Night" at Not So Shabby from 4-7. It's the only time of the year where Jackie (the owner) let's us negotiate and wheel and deal with pricing. 
I'm hoping to have the booth stocked with lots of treasures for that night so stay tuned for pics. 

Below was a custom sign I finished last week as a surprise for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Their small group from church ordered it. I felt a little awkward painting "4 Amazing Girls"-felt a little like bragging, but if the shoe fits.....
I love their small group and they had such a nice time celebrating an incredible milestone. 

Speaking of bragging, I have to brag about my daughter's boyfriend Cole for a minute. Oh, she would kill me if she knew I posted this, but could I not? 
He surprised Brecken with this for Christmas this year. He made it in his wood shop class at school. 
I may have to commission him to make a few pieces in the booth this year. :)
 He also built this barnwood vanity for their new house! I may have to pay him to do some jobs around my house as well this spring! 

A couple of growth chart rulers back in stock:

I have been working on wrapping up some major house remodels this month and am starting several more. I will try to post some of the completed projects soon!
Stay warm!
Meet you back here soon!
