First of, we are the most blessed people in the world when it comes to our friends in Chicago! Angie and Tiffany took the best care of us!! Including complimentary facial masks after dinner on Sunday night! (Thanks Tiffany!)
I have to admit I'm growing rather fond of the idea of moving to Chicago!!
The show itself went well too. We were surround by great neighbors: Jason is an amazing craftsman. I'm secretly trying to find a place in our house for one of this beautiful light fixtures! See more here.
Katie and Johnny and Hope are the most adorable family I've ever met!! So warm and playful and just genuine people. I'm definitely looking them up on our next trip to the Ozarks! OH, oh, and she makes amazing little creatures. The biggest problem was trying to decide which one is my favorite! Go here to see them for yourself!
Leslie and I made some great memories, even thought it cost us her car window! Somebody broke into Leslie's car the night before we left to go home. But no worries, they didn't steel anything and we are resourceful. Who says girls don't know how to use duck trap and plexiglas?
I generally don't like snow. It's pretty when it's falling, but otherwise it's wet and cold and turns into slush and makes any commute more difficult than it should be. Snow, in my opinion, belongs in the mountains where you can actually do cool things with it; not Des Moines, where's a driving hazard and just lies around waiting to melt.
Needless to say, I think the snow finally got me into Christmas mode and I spent evening making my paper tree and wrapping presents. (Thanks for the great Scandinavian wrapping paper, Ikea!)

Just a quick update on UrbanPosture. Leslie and I have booked a few shows for the holidays. Partly, because that's expected, but also to get away and see what's going on outside of our little world. Here's where we'll be:

Renegade Craft Holiday Sale - December 5 & 6th from 11am to 7pm at Pulaski Park Fieldhouse (Chicago, IL)

1.Renegade went well. It was exhausting, but good. I'm so grateful for the amazing help of our Chicago friends, Angie, Erica and Tiffany!! All in all, UrbanPosture made some good connections and now we have a pile of work that needs to be done sooner than later!
2. Our kitchen is almost finished. Expect a post in the near future with updated photos of the progress.
3. My dear friend, Jen, is pregnant with her second child. I can't wait to be an aunt again! Now, if I could just get Sophie to say: 'Auntie Sarah'... Oh, and my sister-in-law is due the first part of November and my good friend, Jennifer had a baby boy on Thursday. What does all this really mean? I better get knitting if I'm going to have handmade presents in time for Christmas!!
4. I got spectacles. (I confess that they are only 25% needed and 75% wanted.)
6. The kitchen and bath world has been extremely busy as well, which is the main reason for my absence. However, long work hours=money, which is much needed!
I will attempt to write more updates this month. The Holidays are right around the corner and they bring ample opportunities for projects!
