a new nephew, a honeypot, and a flu

this has been one of the craziest weeks i've had in awhile!
monday, i found out this little guy was born: my nephew, Elliot.
Tuesday i drove to iowa and held the little guy a lot and played with his very good big brother, Arthur.
I can't believe how much love you can feel for someone you've known for only a day.
such a sweet nephew.
thursday nite i got home and worked, worked, worked to get ready for the honeypot shop.
friday morn: i chopped my hair again :)
saturday: up at 7, getting ready. honeypotted from noon to 5, it was really fun to see customers in person and to experience what its like to set up a little space. met lots of great folks!
i feel like it wasn't as haphazard as it looks in these pictures. but it was hard to get good pics because the sun was behind my booth

saturday and sunday i got the killer flu ( i will spare you pictures of that!)
but all in all it was a wonderful week.

i fell hard for that little elliot guy, and miss him and his brother so much.

but now its back to the routine (or as routine as my life ever is) and i'm happy to be adding stuff to the shop again.

hope your week was lovely too! i missed you all.

thanks for reading,
