short hair & our cyber Monday sale!

The littlest one hates - and I mean HATES- having his hair cut. The last time we gave him a haircut  it ended with Alex holding him down while I desperately tried to not cut his ear off with the scissors, him screaming his head off the whole time. Terrible...
So we decided to give the electric hair trimmer a shot yesterday. I wouldn't call the experience a breeze, but it was certainly less traumatic (for him)  than with scissors. I will admit however, that I am a tad bit traumatized with the baby of our family looking so much older, but I will adjust.
Just look at those to-die-for highlights.... *sigh*
At least his still has his sweet baby fur on his shoulders and arms... ♥
 Also, I forgot to tell you about our Black Friday / Small Business Saturday / Cyber Monday Sale happening RIGHT NOW! Our Holiday 20% off sale ends tomorrow night~ so if you are thinking about getting a Seed & Sky gift this season, now is the time!

Honey Bee art Design for Seed & Sky Jewelry
I made two new designs for Seed & Sky this past week. This little honey bee is one of them. I have a lot of friends who care for bees~ and I hope to someday join the ranks of beekeepers... but for now I will have to settle for bee artwork. :)
There is so much to love about bees, and this one goes out to all those bee lovers out there. I am all set up to work on turning it into some jewelry this evening! If you aren't already, make sure to join our facebook page to keep up to date when new designs are released in my shop!
Also, stay tuned for my other new design tomorrow. I will give you 3 hints as to what it is:

  1. It is the primary primary predator of the honeybee.
  2. They are also known as American Polecats.
  3. They have terrible eyesight but excellent hearing.
Can you guess what it is? 

my sister's baby shower

Alex made carrot cake cupcakes (or pupcakes as Lil calls them no matter how many times we tell her they are called Cupcakes) with the BEST cream cheese frosting. I made little flags out of toothpicks and washi tape for them~ super easy and cute!
 Everyone brought favorite books for the new baby's library. A lot of great classic children's books from the 70's and 80's showed up. :)
 Kristi made rosemary infused lemonade. 
 Scones, tea sandwiches, and soups (roasted squash and sweet potato & cream of cauliflower.) Those pink and red flowers are the very last stragglers from my garden. I had purchase the yellow ones to supplement them. I am going to miss our fresh flowers so!
It couldn't have been a prettier day here in western North Carolina. The baby shower went really well much to my relief. Throwing or hosting parties is not my strong suit, so thankfully our friends Kristi & Jeff and Alex were able to help co-host it and make it fun, super tasty, and extra pretty. My sister and Dave are really humble and shy about people focusing too much on them, so it was fun to have a reason to celebrate them and their new life. It would be impossible to explain how thrilled and excited I am for my new little niece to arrive at the end of this year!

I saw the most amazing shooting star a few nights ago. It was low, bright, and had a long tail that sparked like a sparkler as is fizzled into the night. It was so magical. I have been feeling extra grateful for all that we have this week, and my heart goes out to all those effected by the hurricane in the Northeast.  (((hugs)))
