Craft Fair

I'm SO excited to say that I will be vending at my local holiday craft fair for the first time. It's at the Scotts Valley Senior Center this weekend, November 1 and 2.

I've been sewing like crazy for the last few weeks. Also still trying to finish our Halloween costumes, but I took a break from those last night to make a vest for my little guy.

Isn't he cute? We were running late to daycare, but I got a quick blurry shot. It's fleece, and lined with an old flannel receiving blanket of his. Super warm!

I'm also making neck cozies out of the fleece, but decided that color was more suited for toddler clothes.

Speaking of Halloween, we started a countdown calendar with little prizes for 13 days leading up to it. It was a panel kit, and very easy to sew.

And no Halloween is compete without a trip to the pumpkin patch :)

Celery Growing

I've seen a few articles lately about growing food from, well, groceries essentially. The celery sounded easy enough, so I gave it a try.

I stuck the base in some water, and just a couple days later there was quite a bit of growth.

About a week later I put it in a pot with soil up to the top of the original base. Now it's really taking off! I'm looking forward to having a couple small stalks ready at a time. Really that's all I use at once, so it's hard to use up a whole entire bunch of it.

Plus it's a pretty plant :)
