Happy Mother's Day to everyone. I had a wonderful, (and very well-deserved I might add), sleep-in), breakfast in bed - Jackson made me special cereal which, in case you want the recipe, consisted of blue corn tortilla chips, fish crackers, blueberries and milk. An acquired taste I think. Lots of morning cuddles, cute cards and gorgeous paintings - to add to my stash of treasures. After an early afternoon retreat to everyone's respective rooms, (It's Mother's Day afterall, not Miracle Day), I managed to talk Jack and Sam into biking to the Tulip Festival, which turned into a wonderful afternoon with olympic tag and lots of laughs. Thanks kiddos. To the moon.

Can not believe it is 9 days until Handmade Harvest! Annie, Samia and I took a mini road trio out to Almonte yesterday to drop off our swag. The dropoff was at Blackbird which is owned by one of the organizer's. We were in and out in a jiffy as Annie's daughter was in a protest on Parliament Hill (Zoe, age 9, activist extraordinaire), and Sam had kindy, but I have to tell you - that's a shop I need to get back to. Front to back, floor to ceiling gorgeousity. (I'm getting on that making-up-my-own-words bandwagon..my favourite is requenching. That totally should be a word.)
Both Annie and I forgot to take our cameras with us so no photos of the road trip, Blackbird or Colleen (a sweetheart and the other half of the hardworking Handmade Harvest twosome). I had some photos on my phone but do you think I can get them to send to my email? No I can not.
So my list is definitely not getting any shorter by blogging. I leave you with a few snaps of what's brewing in the rehash product line for Handmade Harvest, Saturday May 7th. You don't want to miss this show if you are in the Ottawa area - awesome artisans, great swag and raffle prizes. A great opener to the spring/summer craftshow season. Love.

Mondays aren't usually one of my favourites but this one is doing alright! Checking lots of boxes on my to-do list, got some business happening in my etsy store, my floors are clean, my homework is done, business cards at the printer, and I just got the news that I was awarded a busary for school! Life is good!
