In my spare time...

As some of you know or don't know, my sisters-in-law have opened up an adorable boutique in Washington. As much as I hate that I'm not up there to be a part of the fun, I still have a chance to participate and make some money. I thought you all might like to see what I do in my spare time...which is the two hours in the afternoon when the kids are peacefully sleeping. With the help of my sweet dad I do all the wood cutting, routing, painting, and distressing on these cute signs. The frames have been a new development in my repertoire of boutique items, but have turned out pretty cute. I have a lot of fun coming up with new ideas and would dare say I am turning "crafty"...yikes!

UM Jill.....look at who your mom is! You girls have been blessed with crafty born right into you!

I LOVE all of these. Alright, when I finally figure out what to do with Mallory's bedroom I am totally calling you!

Thanks for posting pictures of your darling work. You have always had an eye for such things. What a woman - using the precious nap time (I'm sure, even more precious with two) for something other than sleeping yourself!

Jill! I love them! Please let me know when you are selling them here in Ut! Can I come over and buy one from you?

Spare time?! Wow, you are so productive. And I must add that when you say you are turning crafty, you should've probably said you just plain ARE crafty. You are already there, and I love the projects. They are so cute. Keep it up, but relax every now and then to make us all feel a little better about ourselves.

Jill! Your frames, baby signs, and spring signs were a huge hit! You better get busy on more because are next show is just around the corner. We decided to join the Secret Garden show the first weekend of May! ALso, you have a few special orders! I'll call you once I have a chance.
