a fresh batch of badges

badgesI made this new batch of badges for my table at the August 23rd fun after 5 ‘Makers Music Fest’ in Basin Spring Park in Eureka Springs, AR. I’m loving the puff-balls and Brooke’s favorite is the red star one. Come pick your favorite at the event next Friday!

We should have our custom tent out, and I should be sharing a table with the amazing woodworker behind Sticks and Stones who builds the frames for our tents (aka, my dad). This is going to be a really fun, family friendly event, so come play with us on the 23rd!

a traveler’s guide

I made this cute little guide book for a trip went on a couple of days ago. It’s just a stack of 3×5 cards with different things I wanted to be sure and check out while I was there. I digitized it into a little book to share here, but the paper copy is pretty gosh darn cute itself!

Now that I’m back from my trip, I’ve printed pictures to go with each card and used double sided tape to stick them to the backs of each card (the cards were all one sided, which my flip book above does not demonstrate well). Below is a quick instagram of each page with photos and binding. Pretty cute eh? I love how we used the book to remember what we wanted to do and where each of those things were and then it turned into a sort of scrapbook/keepsake when we threw the pictures in there!

How do you plan the things you want to see and do when you travel? Do you write them down somewhere? Next time you should make yourself a little personalized guide book!

introducing the stringy bracelet of friendship

braceletThese fun stringy bracelets are so simple to make, and are a super cute way to tell the world that you’re crafty (it’s the rik-rak).
braceletMake your own for yourself and your friends by cutting bits of string, yarn, trimming, etc. about the length of three times around your wrist. Double them over and tie a knot, forming a loop, at the doubled over end. Tie a knot in the loose end and slip it through the loop.

Did you make one? Share it with us with a link to your photo wherever you’ve posted it in the comments, we’d love to see your handiwork!
braceletOr, if you don’t happen to have a drawer full of doo-dads, skip all of the work and buy some of the super cute combos we’ve already made here.

music monday: farmer’s market musicians

On Saturday we rode our bikes up to the Fayetteville Farmer’s Market on the square and found three super great local musicians gracing the crowd with their talent.

farmer's marketThere was this cowboy (above) playing Hank Williams Sr.’s “Your Cheatin’ Heart” which is a favorite of Brooke’s. I like it because it’s easy to play on my ukulele. We did a little jig as we passed him and were on to the next corner where these three (below) were playing smooth jazz! They were Brooke’s favorite becuase, well it’s a three piece band, on the street.

farmer's marketCowboyWhat kind of music is there at your local farmer’s market? Have you ever thought about popping out with your guitar and singing to the world? If so, we think you’re super brave and we’d love to hear about your experiences!

farmer’s market haul

haulAt the Fayetteville Farmers Market Brooke and I picked up: green beans, some super flavorful little onions in red and white, super cool and meaty varieties of sweet bell peppers, and delicious little baby potatoes. Then, my amazing friend brought us a gigantic bag of perfectly ripe blackberries. We are loving the summer market.

What’s great at your market right now? Are you somewhere warm enough to have tomatoes galore? If so we’re jealous!
