Treasured days...

It's been a busy week here with my sister and her family still in town. We've enjoyed day after day of guests, wonderful family feasts and lots of fun play time together. Last weekend I made up a batch of homemade hot buttered pretzels. They were a big hit. Yum! My sister and I worked on some canvases for little Hans' room and gave the girls a canvas to work on together.
They had a blast and came up with this wonderful creation. As you can see, they were quite excited about it! We won't all be together again until Christmas, so we're enjoying every minute. Nothing beats treasured days like this!! To make things even more exciting, I'm awaiting the arrival of my wonderful art friend on Friday and then on Saturday attending an amazing firestarter session with my sister and Hope conducted by Danielle LaPorte the author of Style Statement.

so excited! I really should be doing a zillion other things rather than reading blogs, like packing, tying out loose ends with clients, get the recyling set to go out... I mean I do have to leave the house at 5am tomorrow... But nope. I am reading blogs :)

I'd really like a pretzel, please -- extra butter, extra salt.
