it's been a busy week of busy-ness
we're almost back into the swing of things
after the BHG whirlwind :) and my in-laws visiting with us
i'm trying to catch up ... and haven't posted any Instagram pics in the past few weeks
so thought i would share them today ♥
are you on Instagram?? why in the world not?? it's super fun :)
you can follow me at raisinguprubies
linking up with Life Rearranged
i kinda went
totally overboard 'n crazeeee all out for the BHG photoshoot,
and checked a lot of things off of a very dusty "last things to finish up in the studio" list
a new sewing machine cover from a vintage sheet ... isn't she purdy?
the sheet strips turned into a bunting i've been wanting to make for a while
to hang above the built-ins ... and my fabric is organized finally
i can see all of it right there! no more huge tangled mess in a canvas bin under my sewing table ... oy
(i think a craft room update post is in order :) right?! yes.)
i got some layers and a trim... BHG was comin'!!
the day after Sandy, we were blessed with hardly any damage here, but school was cancelled for some reason ... the girls built a fort thingy out of sticks in the backyard
then played in the leaves & mud
did you vote? 2 Chronicles 7.14 was on my mind that day
BHG came, they shot, they left! it was a crazy-fun two days that you can read about here
got a few Christmas gifts crocheted while hangin' out with the hubby's rents
who were up for a visit from NC
they bring us all the bad things we can't get up here in the north ...
Chik-fil-a ... nom nom nom
Krispy Kreme ...nom nom nom nom
(chocolate iced are my fav) ...nom nom nom
(then we go on a diet for 2 weeks)
these are my crazeee gurls
on a shopping trip
(i'm sorry but goofy hats & missing teeth get me every. time.)
(wish we woulda bought the hat)
i don't know if i'm getting old or what
but i was ASTOUNDED at the amount of Christmas candy that's at Target!
um, do we need this much candy??
(nom nom nom)
cute gift ideas & tutes for Christmas coming up soon!
... happy felt rainbow bows make me happy :)
oh and since you're here and i've been rambling on and on and on
for a ridiculously long amount of time

happy weekend ♥ loves!
