Sometimes I wonder what I did to deserve to be so lucky.
First of all, look at how damn cute my kids are:
(Aidan as Cleopatra)
(Alice as... Brian Setzer? She refused to wear a costume so we just went with a punk/rockabilly theme. She played the part pretty well, don't you think?)
This was the first year that she actually walked to trick or treat.
(her tattoo says "moms")
Aidan liked that she got to wear makeup.
In the studio this week I've been working on way too many projects and have only finished one of them. A going away gift for my dear friend Aimee:
(sterling and dyed coral)
I feel so lucky to have met her and gotten to know her during her time here in Lawrence. She's an incredibly talented artist, she's (as Foxy put it last night) devastatingly funny, and best of all, our families get along together perfectly. In fact, they feel more like family than friends. (but the kind of family that gets along, not the kind of family that's full of drama and conflict! ;) ).
We're going to miss them terribly.
But I can't wait to visit. I'll finally make it to NYC!
Safe travels, Artysville girls! We love you!!
(PS. I will be listing some of these Aimee-inspired dangles in the shop too!)
