Boutique #1 down

 Hey guys!
Sorry I have been M.I.A. lately.
I had my first boutique was last weekend and it was
c.r.a.z.y.
So much fun and so so crazy! 

Aaron built me a new display this year. 
Isn't it amazing?! 
It turned out exactly how I hoped it would. 
And now my husband can no longer claim he isn't crafty.
Now that I know what he's capable of my honey-do list keeps growing :)

I love this shot of all my towels. 
They look like a pretty rainbow hanging up next to one another.
And that cute little "Lu Bird" sign was made by my friend Courtney.
She has an Etsy shop called Joyful Joyful where she sells adorable banners and signs.
Be sure to check it out!

The first day of the 3 day boutique I sold more than half the towels I had made! I was so excited but that meant I had to scramble to make some more which meant sewing while the kids were awake (something I never do). Wesley was my sewing helper and Mackenzie took out all of my pins for me. 

 I also got to bring the 3 littles with me to help restock and do a little shopping of myself. 
If you get a chance to stop by the next Sugar Plum Festival on November 14-16 at the OC Fairgrounds you must! 
It is their biggest one of the year and there are so many cool vendors. 
These were some of my favorite finds. 
A new key chain and this vintage Little People barn. 

And just for fun I had to show you this picture. 
Aaron and I lifted the 3 (giant, HEAVY) pieces of my display on top of our van and then drove them to the boutique and then had to take them off to set up. I think I about had a panic attack the entire time we were driving. And I realized I need to start working out for next boutique season. Those things are crazy heavy!

Woman, you are a machine! Wow. I'm impressed with it all, the 4 kids, the sewing, the selling, the wood fence. All of it. Way to go!
