Theresa’s favorite flower is the anemone, so I decided to bring supplies to make some crepe paper ones together while I’m here! Two hours later and these are the results of our crafting. The middle fringe was done beforehand on the plane. 😜

So while I’m up here in New Hampshire, any orders for the Protect & Serve earrings will receive something extra in the package! Just order by the 15th and I’ll be sure it’s included. What is it? Well, that’s going to be a surprise because Theresa and I (and Keith) have our birthdays this week and we like surprises and want to include you in all the fun. 😜 This design was created in memory of her brother and 50% of the proceeds from this design is donated to the @ktmemorialfund, awarded to one Police Cadet each year here in NH! You can read more about it on the listing, as well as the website mentioned in the listing. I’ve made these earrings easy to find by including a link directly to them in my IG profile! Orders will not ship until I return on the 16th. Hope you enjoy your surprise! 💕

Yesterday I met my long time pen pal for the first time! We were paired up through Brio Magazine around 20 years ago because our birthdays are one day apart. She lives up in New Hampshire and I decided back in March to secretly plan with her mom to fly up and meet @ttrombley87 for our birthdays this weekend. And boy is it a gorgeous time to be here with her! The fall colors are popping, so I took a walk around her yard this morning to find some leaves to paint until she gets home from work. To say I’m in my happy place would be an understatement! Lovely people, lovely foliage, and lovely painting time. 😍

This makes me SO happy!! I’ve been wanting a better travel set of watercolors to take with me to New Hampshire and last week when my mom and I were at the Hob Lob, we came across this 48 color set that was 50% off! 😱 I slowly pulled it from the shelf and handed it to my mom with wide eyes and she said, “For your birthday?!!” And I said “heck yes!!” So she “surprised” me with it this morning 😜, just in time for my trip that starts tomorrow! I hear that it’s peak color time for the lovely fall foliage up in NH, so of COURSE I’ll be painting while I’m there and taking lots of photos. So my feed will look a little different for the next week or so. Fall, here I come! 😆

Did you know, I also offer peacock “feathers” (made from embroidery thread)? I’ve got 3 pairs of these darker ones left in my shop and I don’t know if I’ll have more! Tag a peacock loving friend below! 🤗

All set up and ready to get things started at @farmgirlfair in Norman! If you’re coming off of 35, take the Tecumseh exit and head West all the way til you get to the farm. 🤗 Also, today marks the end of my color themed posts which is a little sad, but I hope you have enjoyed them! 💕

Tomorrow! Tomorrow is @farmgirlfair and I couldn’t be more excited! I’ll be loading up my car in a bit, then headed to Norman to start set-up so that tomorrow morning goes a bit faster. There will be food trucks, live music, and around 60 vendors for the occasion and I’ll be sure to bring you along in my Stories! Don’t have plans this weekend, but near the Norman area? Come see us! I’ll be wearing my monarch wings (the costume kind AND earrings) and my sweet mama will be there helping me once again. If you’re not able to come, I hope you have a lovely weekend and find something fun to do! 🤗

New obsession? Cream colored crepe paper sunflowers! 😍 I’ll have five of these available this Sunday at @farmgirlfair and I’m excited to see who gets them!! But you can be sure that I’ll be making more of these in the future and offering them in my shop when I can get around to creating all the listings. Come say hello this weekend if you’re in Norman! I’d love to meet some of you in person! @storytime_signs and @tracicuffs will also be there, and I cannot wait to see both of them again! If you don’t know either of them, head over to their pages and get to know these two lovely ladies! Tell them I sent you! 🤗

Brown with copper is one of my favorites, but I threw in one gold one for ya. 😜 I’m still full throttle show prep over here for @farmgirlfair this Sunday in Norman, so I totally failed to post until now and BARELY had enough light outside to even get a photo! Giving myself some grace, though, because show prep is kinda important. 😆

What is a thoughtful gift you’ve received? For me it was two years ago around this time when the fair was in town and I was discussing the history of my fair experience with a friend. I mentioned I had never ridden  rides at the fair but always wanted to as a kid. My parents couldn’t afford that in my growing up years, but we always went and walked around and experienced all the free things and shared a turkey leg and funnel cake among the five of us. A few days after this conversation, my friend dropped by unexpectedly and let me borrow his media pass and wrist bands for rides so that my mom and I could experience a part of the fair that I never gotten to as a kid. It was such a meaningful gesture that it still brings tears to my eyes even now! We had so much fun riding the Farris wheel and made a point to try foods we had never had before. 🎡
Today I’m working on greenery (or is it brownery in this case? 🤔😆) for all the build your own crepe paper bouquets I’ll have available this Sunday at @farmgirlfair! I’ve used the gold crepe from @papermart for these, so they have just a bit of shine to them and totally feel like fall to me! 🍂

Browns and coppers and rusty colors are the colors of fall (at least here in Oklahoma 🤣). Did you know that paprika makes a great option for pollen on crepe paper flowers? I’ve seen several paper florists use this technique and I’ve adopted it myself! Just dip an edge of a strip of crepe into some glue, then dip that glued edge into a pile of paprika and let it dry completely before you go fringe crazy! You can see the completed look in the middle of the peony in the second photo. Hoping to create more of these for this weekend’s show at @farmgirlfair! And I’m also hoping it doesn’t get rained out and have to move weekends, but it’s a possibility and I’m trying not to stress about it. Okay, who am I kidding? I’m stressing. 🥴😆

Today, today I’m hurting for my dear friend and her family who are saying “goodbye for now” to her nephew who passed away unexpectedly last week after playing a football game. But I rejoice that he accepted Christ last year and that the Gospel will be shared today as they celebrate his life. I pray that hearts will be open to receive the Truth. I’d love for you to join me in this prayer. And also, especially pray for the twin he leaves behind. They would have celebrated their 14th birthday in a couple of weeks and I can only imagine the pain that his twin is and will be feeling in the next few days, weeks, months, and years. We never know when a day will be our last. May we live and love to the fullest, looking to the eternal, instead of getting wrapped up in the petty things that won’t last. May everything I do and say be all for the glory of God, the only thing that really matters. 🖤

So many useful tools in this photo; pinking shears for making fringe on crepe paper go a little faster, my wonderful @surebonder glue gun that @thelittlegreenbean introduced me to, and of course, my @dmc_embroidery thread that all of my earrings are made from! I love that ordinary things can be used to create such fun things! We just have to use some imagination and creativity and see what we can come up with! Some are failures, some are hits, but lessons are learned and help us grow into the artist or person we want to be. We too can go from ordinary to extraordinary! 😜

Have you ever had the privilege of knowing someone who was completely different from most people you meet? The ones who talk different, love different, and act different? You know there’s something about them that screams kindness and grace and you know without them even saying anything outright that they are a follower of Jesus and that their life’s mission is to tell everyone they know, through their words and actions, about the love that Jesus has for them? For me, that was BJ Higgins. You may or may not have heard of him, but serving a summer with him in Peru was an honor and I will treasure those memories. He became a friend I could count on to pray for me during a dark time in my life. Today marks 14 years since he left this earth, and after his death, I learned even more about  just how much wisdom BJ had and especially about his faith. Those words on my shirt? Those were his words. That book you see? I encourage you to pick up a copy and read it. Or you might look up I Would Die For You by @themercyme and listen to the words written by and for BJ. If you’ve never had a BJ in your life, someone to point you to Jesus, that is my prayer for you today; that you’ll be blessed at some time in your life to have someone like him to help point you to the Truth. 💕

In preparation for my next show I finally took inventory of the earrings I had on hand and discovered that in order to reach the goal I want and fill out of stock items (over 130 pairs!), I had a LOT of work to do! So I’m breaking up my goal into smaller portions, and giving myself grace if I DON’T reach it. I’ve been working pretty hard from about 10am-10:30pm to try to get things done each day and I’m slowly getting there! If you saw my Stories yesterday where I was dying some monarch earrings, you know how slow the process of making just ONE earring, not a set, is! Thankfully I’ve found a rhythm and process that makes it not feel as slow as it is, so many earrings are being worked on at one time. While a group of them dries, I start working on another group. Then while THOSE dry, another group is started. Then by day 3 I can start cutting the first group and painting them. If you think that sounds insane, you’re probably right. But I love all things tedious, so it works for me! 😆 What’s something you love doing that might sound crazy to some? 🤔

“Do you have any shades of blue?” Me: “let me show you my obsession!” CLEARLY, I don’t like working with blues. 😜 Now I understand why people feel overwhelmed when they come to my booth at shows. Oops! If you too would like to see my full obsession, I mean, collection, come see me on October 6th in Norman at @farmgirlfair! $5 entry fee will get you in from 11-5 that day. I’ll have all my earrings and a build your own bouquet with my crepe paper flowers! 💙

I’ll be honest, I did NOT want to get up for our morning walk today, but then this gorgeous sunrise greeted us and by the end of the walk, my mom and I both noted how fast it seemed the time went by because we were enjoying the sunrise so much! I suppose that’s a lesson to cherish every moment, even when you don’t “feel” like it. We never know how much time we have left here on this earth, or how much more time we have left with those we love, so why not at least try to cherish every moment? Today begins the @evaloveauction that will help offset the extreme medical costs for a sweet little girl who suffered a traumatic brain injury last month. If you don’t know her story, I encourage you to head over to @lindsayletters.co to read about how you can pray specifically for Eva’s recovery (and get your tissues ready because the words they share are deep!), and I would love it if you would check out the auction to see how you might be able to help. Think about Christmas gifts as you bid. And may you not have a blue Monday, but a beautiful sunrise day of a new week! 💕

Greenery isn’t my favorite thing to make, so I avoid it, but yesterday I made myself work on some and these stems are what I came up with. And I’ll admit, it wasn’t terrible! 🤣 I worked on some of them while I watched @jeopardy which made them more enjoyable, I think. lol I also keep my score of correct answers by setting aside leaves, stems, or small pieces of whatever it is I’m working on, and then count my “correct” pile after the show is over. Some days I do terrible and only get 3-4 correct answers, but if the teen tournament is on, I’ve been known to have over 20! 🤣 So tell me, are you a Jeopardy fan like me? I got hooked on it while taking care of my Granddad several years ago, and we continued to watch it together after he was in the nursing home. Even after he has passed, I still watch and love it and think of him while I watch. 🤗

And I’ll admit, it wasn’t terrible! 🤣 I worked on some of them while I watched @jeopardy which made them more enjoyable, I think. lol I also keep my score of correct answers by setting aside leaves, stems, or small pieces of whatever it is I’m working on, and then count my “correct” pile after the show is over. Some days I do terrible and only get 3-4 correct answers, but if the teen tournament is on, I’ve been known to have over 20! 🤣 So tell me, are you a Jeopardy fan like me? I got hooked on it while taking care of my Granddad several years ago, and we continued to watch it together after he was in the nursing home. Even after he has passed, I still watch and love it and think of him while I watch. 🤗  #greenery  #crepepaperrevival  #papergreenery  #crepepaperleaves  #madewithpaper  #paperart  #natureinspired  #inspiredbynature  #handmadegreenery  #mypapermart  #madeinoklahoma  #tulsaartist  #918makers  #heytheremaker
