Sara & Judd

Sara and Judd were married at the UBC Boathouse last Saturday. It was a stressful, but wonderful time as they had also purchased a house a few weeks prior to the wedding and gained access the day before!

Congratulations you two!

Flowers from the Flower Factory

Cupcakes from Cupcakes

We had to do a quick flip of the room from ceremony to reception. Since guests were staying in the room, we tried to set up as much as possible so that we didn't have to move tables and chairs around people that were mingling.

These were quick snaps that I took of the venue during set up. Professional photos are on the way from Kyla and her lovely crew at Kyla Hemmelgarn Photography

Fallen for Etsy

Fallen for Etsy was last weekend. One craft fair down, 2 (maybe 3) to go. It was a fantastic show though. We gave out plenty of Got Craft postcards and I sold almost everything I had. Which is A) Great and B) Stressful because I Heart Crafts is this Sunday - eep!

It was my Grandma's birthday yesterday and we celebrated on Thursday with dinner chinese banquet style!

I know it isn't the most flattering pictures, but they are natural :)

That's my Grandma on the left and my mom on the right.

the unloved blog

Things have been hectic lately. I don't even have a picture to post.

Hectic as in stand in the bathroom to curl your hair while drinking a cup of tea and balancing the laptop in the sink and returning emails with the hand that is not holding the red hot stick. I am the multi task queen. Quite frankly though, this queen needs a nap. Or maybe a cup of coffee with a biscuit.

Heads for nap..

Tails for coffee...

Onion and Rosemary Focaccia

With fresh parmesan ...

or without..

This loaf is SO banned from the house. I made both of these yesterday courtesy of "the bread book" and there is only a tiny wedge of bread left. Even my grandma came over and enjoyed some. It was that good.

in with the new... out with the old

This is the old cover for my sewing machine.

This is my brand new sewing machine cover.

This is what it looks like from the inside.

Remember that awesome yellow and black oil cloth I picked up from Portland last summer, well I finally finished my project. The pieces were cut awhile ago, but I didn't get around to piecing everything together. That is.. until last night! I completed the swag bags for Got Craft just before 4:30pm, so I moved straight into sewing the trim and pieces. I love it. Waaaaayyyy better than the old cover. More projects are on the horizon.. stay tuned.

that time of year...

Yes, it's that time of year where I have to maintain, not one, but two blogs! Promotion for the December Got Craft event has begun. So if it seems pretty quiet on this end, go visit the Got Craft blog for upcoming craft events and other updates.

Ps. The jar of pom poms is totally unrelated, but I thought the post would be more interesting with a picture. Plus, I'm really excited about these pom poms. They have big plans. Hint: Holiday garland!

Apple Crumb Cake

This is really good. Like really REALLY good. I have tried them in both muffin form and mini cake / loaf form. Rob rated them 12 out of 10.

You can find the recipe for Apple Crumb Cake on Jeannette's blog called everybody likes sandwiches. I was secretly stalking her etsy shop a few years ago when I first started selling on etsy and I finally met her in person at the last I Heart Crafts Bazaar. I am also pleased to say that she will be one of our vendors at the December Got Craft.

You can visit her shop The Beautiful Project by clicking here.

If I have time, you may be able to try one of these delicious cakes for yourself at the show.
