A Monster Surprise

We had a crazy morning this morning, running around trying to get things accomplished while somehow having fun with three little kids at the same time. It really didn't work. So by the time Zöe's nap time rolled around I was really ready to hit some of the local crafty gatherings with my friend Holly. We ended up at "Riches at Rimskys" which had a great and varied group of local craftsters. There was one in particular that I was looking forward to seeing...Jennifer of Dishy Duds whose stuff I have been admiring for a long, long time. In particular, her monster tees are amazing, beautiful, and so, so unique and fun! It was so great to meet her and we had a nice chat about Portland, crafty stuff, life with kids, cool shops, blogs, and other good stuff. I was really coveting her cool monster tees when she completely took me by surprise and gifted me with one! I was speechless. After the crummy morning I'd had, her generous, spontaneous gesture really lifted my heart. The boys were too excited when they saw it and are now planning a schedule of who gets to wear it on which days. Thanks Jennifer, you made us all so happy with your fabulous blue-eyed monster!

I was hoping to get to that sale too, but the day just kind of got away from me. I love her monster tees!

Wow, that T is so great. I must say that I am totally jealous that you get to meet in person real life crafters! That is too cool.

I was at the sale also and LOVED the Dishy Duds creations....
darn! I should have chatted with her more -
but I had all 3 kids in tow (not quite the environment to be able to chat).

I love your blog! I check it everyday to make sure I don't miss an entry. I enjoy your writing style, -- conversational and personal. It's a real talent and skill to make everyday events, come to life in such an interesting way. Please keep it up, as it is a wonderful way for me to feel a part of your daily lives.
I was really concerned about Jack's transition to his new school. (I said a little prayer for him each day, hoping that day by day things would get easier for him.) The picture of the school and your report of visiting him on the playground was touching and reassuring. Thanks

He looks absolutely perfect in that shirt! I was glad to gift it to you because I draw alot of inspiration from your blog. I don't think I was able to convey that sentiment when we met, my brain was pooped! Anyway, so so glad we got to meet in person and hopefully we'll get together sometime. Thanks for posting the cute photo!!
