Karsen's 8th Birthday

This is Karsen. She was lucky enough to go to Mary Poppins on her 8th Birthday. I smile every time I see this picture! It's fun for me to see one of my hats part of her big day. She looks perfect in that color, doesn't she? Her flower is the new jersey type I've been doing. I love how the less it matches the better it looks. A red or brown button would work great too.
What a lucky girl.

It's really me!

Hi! Wow, it's been too long. So much has been going on. My poor blog has been neglected. First, I wanted to let you know that I've been getting reports that my e-mail is not working properly. You can e-mail me @ instead.

I have been working away on many, many hat orders. Thank you for keeping my hands and mind busy! It's been crazy & fun.

Soon, I will have all sorts of hats and flower pins for sale at Mandy Birdwell's studio. You are welcome to purchase my things there. I am also doing at-home parties now. If you are interested in hosting a party send me an e-mail at Turn around time for all orders is 4 weeks.

I am also participating in a gift boutique in Edina on November 12th from 5-9 p.m. There will be only hand-made items for sale. Come get your holiday shopping done and see all the amazing things local women create!

November 12th, 5-9 p.m.
Centennial Lakes Centrum Bldg.

Edina, MN

OK. Enough housekeeping. On to the fun stuff.

Gavin, our oldest, has been begging to be an actor. It's unclear if he even grasps what that means. However, he wore me down. I put together some of Mandy's photos and today we were off to an agency I'm familiar with in downtown Mpls. The owner of the agency seemed to like him right away. She asked him if he would want to be in a TV commercial. He said, "Well, I'd rather be in a movie." Then, she went on to explain to me she thought Gavin could be very busy and wanted to know if I was up for all the driving around the city. Before I could answer Gavin piped in, "Will I get my own office?" I just about died laughing. You could hear my Mother-in-law snickering outside the door. What a silly boy! Love it.... Here's some of the Mandy pics we shared. Of course they LOVED her work!
