Craft Fair Madness

I forgot to share all my fun photos from recent craft fairs I participated in. I loved hanging out with my crafty girl friends while selling some fun things. I sold hair bows, earrings and i spy bags. My mom sent I spy blankets. Ashlee sold her photography letters and my friend Jaimie sold feather hair pins. Our friend Robyn also sold some of her aprons and bags.
Here is the first fair: Troy

These were at the Clarkston Fair

It was a lot of fun. But I think I'm done with them for a while. They are exhausting!

Nala the Boxer

So in October I think Travis and I agreed to watch a baby boxer. She was the last one to sell of her litter and needed to be weened from her mom. We named her Nala and began training her. I fell in love right away but had to remember she wasn't ours. A few families came to see her but no one took her home with them. The breeder paid us and covered the food and vet visits. Well after 2 months there was still no buyer so the breeder just told us we could have her if we paid for her last round of shots. So a nice surprise for us. Not necessarily planed but she's great. And Bandit and her are best friends.
