National Handmade Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I created a national holiday, y'all!  Me! I proposed my idea, made its case, paid the processing fee, and waited. It was so exciting to hear back from them, that from now on, the first Saturday in April will always be National Handmade Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Because our time, sewing, pouring, sanding, making, our love, mixing, formulating, quilting, soldering, dreaming, our dedication, and our blood, sweat, and tears all needs to be…

Our Products in a New Shop (Market 1023)

  This happened quickly! I was planning a full weekend in the College Station area. We were hoping that our camper would be finished. I had made reservations at Lake Somerville. We were spending all day Saturday at the Museum of the American GI, for their Living History Weekend. I had found a cute restaurant to try. And then I came across this gorgeous home/body/gift shop! I looked all over…

Chicken Fun Show

We collected eggs for a week.  We bathed the hens.  We packed our chicken show supply bag.  And we were off.         The club pulled together another great show! In addition to the usual raffle, chicken competition, egg competition, fun games, and showmanship contest... we also had a concession stand up and running and we got to play a couple rounds of chicken poop bingo.  ;)  …

Boerne Diva Night

I was warned that the spring Diva Night is never as well attended as the fall is.  But, boy am I glad we didn't listen... and participated anyways! First off, Diva Night is quite expensive for little, old, handmade, don't-have-much-merchandise-to-actually-sell me.  I'll be honest, $200 is very difficult for me to scrape up, just to be listed as a participating business and be put on the map. And then the…

My Favorite Instagram Accounts!

The other day, our entire Boerne retailers group was asked to list a few of our favorite LOCAL lifestyle, food, fashion, travel, style, and influential instagram accounts and bloggers. I was surprised that no one listed me 😉….. But I came up with a pretty long list of my favorites! So I thought I’d take some time to actually pull together a blog post, to introduce you to some accounts…

Kendall County Jr. Livestock Show

The broiler project for the Jr. Livestock Show has certainly been an experience!       Over the last five years, we've raised the chickens indoors (in the garage) and outdoors.  In handmade buildings and in our water trough (that has been used as our pool during the rest of the year).  ;) We've had a year when we lost several of them to the cold or bad health.  We…

TRAVEL TEXAS (Ox Ranch & Drive Tanks!!!)

This was our third Christmas without gifts, our third Christmas to celebrate experiences and our family. Two years ago was Galveston and Moody Gardens.  Last year was Waco, Cameron Park Zoo, and the Magnolia Silos. This year was something that fit the bill for the animal-lover, photographer, and military-obsessed genes in all of us. Our first day of vacation was actually spent trying to take care of all of the…

Our Business Highlighted (San Antonio Magazine)

I get the San Antonio Magazine in my mailbox every month.  Sometimes it only takes me a few hours to get around to flipping through and enjoying.  Sometimes it's so hectic, it takes me a month or two! The December issue?  Even though I saw that it was a "Made in SA" issue (which is so exciting!), it's actually been sitting on my coffee table for over a week.  But…
