Upcoming Events!

Hi all! We wanted to let you know about some upcoming markets that we'll be participating in. Yay! On Friday, 9/3, we'll be downtown for the FIRST FRIDAY INDIE MARKET located on the corner of S. Elm and MLK in Greensboro from 4-9 pm. If you haven't been out there yet, come down! It's a great time and something fun to get you out of the house on a Friday evening. And with live music, puppets, frozen yogurt, sparkly jewelry, and of course, us! it's fun for families and friends alike. :)

SquackDoodle will also be at the GROVE WINERY for the Fifth Annual Crafts in the Grove Arts Festival and Grape Stomp. That's right! A Grape Stomp! How fun does that sound???? Grove Winery is easy to find. Just follow the highway signs from Highway 29 North. They're about 11 miles from the Greensboro city limits, or 25 minutes from downtown. The festival runs Saturday and Sunday from 12-6 pm. Again, it's a perfect way to get out of the house - either with some gal pals, dudes, or the spouse and kidlets. So come on out and sneak a peek!

Hope to see you next weekend. Say hi to Heather! :)

Shopping Cart -- Foxy Lady!

How adorable (and clever!) are these cute little necklaces/mini purses from A WILDERNESS FOR YOU AND ME? I guess you could call them, "sly like a fox!" Oh how I wish I still had those crazy nights out with the ladies so I had an excuse to wear such cuties. Is it wrong to think of a hurried jog down the hall to your child's room at daycare as your own personal catwalk? Jen?

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Look at this adorable mirror and great DIY tutorial from COUNTRY LIVING! It would look great in a bathroom, guest room, or in a kids room. I think Jen and I need to hone in on our mad contact paper project making skills. ;)

Heya! If you live in the Triad area (or maybe even the Triangle?) you might already know about the First Friday Market held the first Friday of each month (4-9 pm). So last night, being the first Friday of August, was a market of course. It was super hot and even more humid but it was a great time. It's so much fun meeting new customers and vendors. You really start feeding off the energy of the crowd. Hopefully you get a chance to see it but if not, take a peek at our pics. :)
