What we have been up to this summer........
We prepared all month for our Art and Wine show in Alameda CA. the last weekend of July. We met some new friends and sold our jewelry.
We went to a bead show in Concord and picked up some gorgeous stone for Mike's earring designs as he builds new hand forged wire wrapped jewelry for our fall shows. He is also going to be working with "In the Mix" boutique in Vacaville. I have sold my designs there since last fall so we are super excited about this opportunity with Darci. You can meet us in person for a trunk show Labor day weekend as the town fills up for the music and brew fest.
Gorgeous strands of Lapis, Black Spinel, Smoky Quartz, Blue Sapphire, and Ruby and Garnet. This is not a great picture but the light is incredible.
Great Grandma Mary came to visit. The kids were so excited and wow did we have a wonderful time with her. She was an incredible help with cooking, cleaning, playing with the kids and lots of late night talks. We had many years of catching up to do and I think we nearly caught up with the last 44 years. That is a lot of catching up!!
She was here for our sweet Natalie's first birthday party.
We ate yummy plums, nectarines, berries, and more.
We baked chocolate chip, oatmeal walnut, hemp seed, coconut cookies.
They were a hit. The kids kept coming back for more.
I added a couple new ingredients and will make these again.
Sunday as we are waiting at the train station, the kids filled in coloring books and puzzles with Grandpa. A big deal, the train station that is!!
