I caught him in his morning routine for this week's portrait. He enjoys watching shows on the iPad while eating breakfast. The medium may have changed, but watching cartoons before school has not. Have a great weekend!

I have been a busy bee in the shop this month because I am getting ready for the Flock & Gather 2015 Springtime Handmade Market -- check out all the vendors here. I'm really excited to be participating in my second handmade market. It is such a wonderful experience, and a fantastic atmosphere to be a part of -- plus I get to finally meet you and we can interact in person.
I've got a few more brooches that I've been working on for the market, and I just finished folding the cards and categorizing them and the art prints so they are all ready to go. Of course there are other little finishing touches that need to be taken care of -- like how I'm going to set-up my table -- but I feel like the big stuff is over and now I can focus on the small details. I can't wait to see you there, but if you can't make it then I hope you send some well wishes.

As I mentioned in Part 1 and Part 2, I had a lot of time to peruse the internet while I was on maternity leave. My son and I always enjoyed listening to music while I was working on the shop, and we would often find bands and musicians that we had never heard of before through YouTube. I wanted to share with you five songs that I really enjoyed listening to -- and discovered -- while I was on maternity leave back in 2011/12.
Krewella was another random find on YouTube. You know those videos along the right hand side that are similar to the song that you are currently listening to? Alive was probably in there one time, and it was an instant hit in our house. My husband is a big fan of this style of music, especially with women's voices singing -- and Krewella does have fantastic voices.
