My life is a busy one ~ my husband, Sonny, and I have a blended family of 6 kids, 5 of them married and 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren! We have a building business and I am the Office Personnel, if you know what I mean!! I also have a small rug hooking business in my home studio, where I sell as-is wool and my own hand-dyed wool, beautiful frames and stands that my husband builds and some finished hooked pieces, etc. I would love to hook every day, all day, as I'm sure many of you would ~ but that's rarely possible!! Thanks for checking in and I hope you'll find A DAY IN THE LIFE ~ ~ ~ entertaining!!
St. Baldrick's fundraiser for children's cancer research was a big hit! This is grandson, Luke getting his hair cut by his mom, who owns Michelle's Salon ~ many of her girls volunteered their time to shave heads for free in return for a donation! Abby is cutting our friend, Melody's, hair ~ Melody is a school librarian and has Abby's little girls in school ~ they wanted their mom to do the honors!
And here they are ~ bald as cue balls ~ and apparently very happy about it!! When I find out the total amount raised and how many heads they cut, I'll post it here! One teenage lass, had over $7000 pledged and believe me, she was as pretty without her hair as with ~ just a beautiful spirit!!
And this, my friends, is the BEER TOWER!! We saw many of these served through out the evening!! I hope this happy waitress won't mind having her picture on the blog ~ I should have asked ~ but I think she'll be fine with it!! The event took place at Legends, a sports bar, in Shelby and the place was packed!! They were having so much fun there and the food is great!!
Today, I went to the wholesale market in Columbus ~ I found a few things but I'm beginning to wonder if I've seen so much of this stuff that it no longer has the same appeal ~ or maybe the old girl is losing her touch!! I used to buy things to round out my booth at a show ~ to offer something in addition to the rug hooking but not too much this year. My friend, Vivian went with me ~ we had a fun time, had lunch at Brio's and a little shopping at Chico's and Coldwater Creek! And now, I'm gonna put my feet up ~ Sonny keeps asking what our plans are for tonite ~ so I'm thinking he's ready to go somewhere fun! I'll let you know!!
Have a good evening ~ talk to you soon!
P.S. The blog challenge project is due to be published Sunday ~ um, I need to get that started, don't I??!! Stay tuned ~ the wool dust will be flying!!!!!!
