& We Have A Winner...

Sorry to keep the suspense for so long !! Internet is back up (obviously!) & ALL the boxes are unpacked (pics of the new studio coming soon!) !! Whoohoo!! Sooo....Drum Roll please.....The Winner is KreatedByKelly ! Kelly please shoot me an email with your adr. & the earrings will be gifted out to you promptly! However did I pick a winner you ask??

It was very mathematical deduction ....
Moi: "Tyler pick a number between 1 & 17."
Tyler: " I'm 8."
Moi: "So the number 8 then?"
Tyler: "Duh!"
I'd like to say he gets his sarcasm from his dad,
but since it's just me here
.... DUH!
************
Thank you everyone for your kind comments! You all literally brought me to tears! I am stunned by all the supportive emails & convos I've received :)
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Did you birds have a Happy Halloween? We went to a party Friday night at the last minute since all the packing got done. Tyler had already gotten a GIJoe costume but I had nothing to wear! Whatever was I to do??? Luckily most of my clothes are more costumes than outfits (thanks for pointing that out mom!haha) so I threw on a vintage ensemble: black velvet & ostrich feather cape (circa 1970's courtesy of my aunt) & my feather & mink hat (circa early 1900's courtesy of my neighborhood antique mall) add some long necklaces from my shop & voila
...a {sort of} Flapper'ish outfit....

Tyler is petting my hat not giving you all the finger, I promise :)

Good thing we dressed up & went because when Saturday night came around we were both pooped! He asked me if " instead of going trick or treating could we just buy some candy & carve our pumpkin?" Poor kiddo! I told him he was making a very grownup descision & then we went to buy chocolate :)

So of course I had to try out my new oven & roast some pumpkin seeds! I dried them off a bit ( I have no patience for these things so they were still damp when I roasted them) tossed them with salt, garlic powder, my delicious Spanish paprika & EVOO. Roasted them @ 300 for about an hour. They're like healthy tiny potato chips...except not :) I've eaten almost an entire pumpkins worth already! I'm sure to have a stomach soon!

XoXo,
Johanna

DRATS! Oh, I mean congrats to KreatedByKelly! Tyler, why couldn't you be 15...huh?

Glad you had a fun Halloween and loved seeing the photos, Tyler is a cutie! He sounds like an old soul and a smart one at that...chocolate and no work!

The expression on your pumpkin has me giggling!

Love and hugs,
Karyn

Your son is a cutie :)

I just saw the "Quit your Dayjob" interview on Etsy!!! Congrats! It is quite the honor and you deserve it. I really appreciated that you were so honest in the interview - don't we all have those days where we second guess ourselves? You are such an inspiration to me.

I just saw that you will be at the Troika Music Festival tomorrow, so I will see you there! :)
