Catch Up

It's hard to believe that it's been almost a month since my last post. Let me assure you, my life has not been as boring as this blog; I've been so busy! Between family and friends visiting, traveling around Colorado and making time to relax, I've also found time to have the busiest month for simplejoys :)

This past month I had people stock up on stocking stuffers for grandchildren, made multiple hats and booties for newborns, did some custom blankets for friends and mailed a few packages to loved ones on California. Blogs are way more fun with pictures and unfortunately I have been lagging in that area, so here's some pictures, unrelated to yarn, but related to the simplejoys in my life :)
 Loved having my sisters and Court up here 

Roommates for the summer :) 
 Rockies Games

Kat Came to visit!! 

Hope you all are having a fabulous summer! If you have any orders or special requests shoot me an email:

Love love love

Friday Market

Last Friday I packed up all my inventory and headed down to the Granby Friday Market. It was a cold, windy and rainy day so the crowds were light, but I think it was a good practice for the more crowded days to come. Here's some pictures of the set up and such :) Happy Friday!

 Baby Hats and Booties

 Baby Blankets

 Headbands and clips

 Broncos and Rockies Hats

 Mom and Dad came along as moral support- definitely appreciated! 

Mama Bear and I with the whole set-up

Life is about to get crazy in a wonderful kinda way. Grandma arrives on Sunday, Courtney arrives on Tuesday then the rest of the family trickles in throughout the week. It's been nice to have some peace and quiet, but I am SO excited for them to be here!

One big goal this summer is to figure out where the best place to be selling my items is. I've had about 20 people tell me I should try out Etsy, so today I decided to give it a shot! Etsy is a super cool website that is like eBay, but everything is either handmade or vintage.

Check out my shop here :)

Simplejoys of the day: getting to spend time with my dad- he is truly an amazing man and such a great person in my life. Truly blessed.

Big Brother

A few weeks ago my sister asked me to make a baby gift for our friend's newest addition to the family. They love all things sports so we decided on a Rockies hat for the baby (who is coming very soon :) and a Broncos hat for Aiden, the soon-to-be big brother. Tarah and Kyle went to see then last weekend and brought the gifts.

Seriously, does it get any cuter than this?

Along with the hats we sent one of my favorite baby blankets....

Congrats Mike and Sonja, I'm so happy for you and can't wait to meet the little one :)

The Hair Bar

On our way out to Colorado Dad and I stopped in Glenwood to see Tarah and Kyle. The Hair Bar is the little shop that has been selling my stuff so we decided to stop in and see how things were going. We unfortunately did not get to meet the owner, but I did get to see my stuff on display and snap these photos... 

The place was absolutely adorable- a mini anthropologie. I'm on the lookout for some new stores this week so fingers crossed :) 

simplejoys of the day- learning to make lattes with my cousin's new espresso machine- im obsessed!

After a fun but long three days of driving I'm finally in Colorado! Sorry for the lack of blogging, things are about to pick up so I will have lots to share :) Here's some pictures in the meantime...

 Just hanging out on the Oregon Trail 


 Shoshone Falls- the most beautiful things I have ever seen 

My summer home!

Simplejoys of the day: sitting out by the lake, riding my bike around town and the ice cream shop!

Happy Birthday 21st AL!!

Today is my fabulous friend and roommate's birthday :) Al loves her birthday more than anyone I've ever known and I really love to celebrate other people's birthdays, so we make a great pair. We started the day off with a big breakfast, strolled around Pikes, got yogurt and are going out to dinner tonight! It's so fun to be up here and get to celebrate my wonderful friend.

Love you so much Al, you are an amazing friend and such a blessing to know :)

Part of Al's birthday present was some homemade stationary...Here's some pics.
