Well here it is, another double Photo Fun Friday post. Two weeks worth of photos, since life has been a bit hectic and we were away last Friday! See my last post that explains all of the busy and crazy in my life right now. A funny thing I realized in looking at these photos from the last two weeks, I feel like I have eaten out at more restaurants in the last month than likely the whole year, with all the traveling, birthdays and trying to squeeze in hang time with friends.
It has been a really fun two weeks, a great way to finish off the year! We were in Chicago two weekends ago and then Pittsburgh this past weekend. That is it for our traveling for 2012 and now we are home for the holidays! Yay! Hope you enjoy all of the photos (there’s a lot of them), and I hope you are enjoying your holiday season. We will be at the Western New York Book Arts Center this weekend, this afternoon and all day tomorrow, for the Last Minute Panic Holiday Marketplace! Come on by if you are local, we will be selling our prints, greeting cards and other goodies. I will be there on and off, since I also need to be at home packing 😉
Do you have any fun plans this weekend?
The big tree in Downtown Chicago and the Christmas windows at Macy’s.
Billy and Mark at their live Adventures in Design podcast show at Schubas in Chicago.
Our booth at the Chicago Renegade Holiday Craft Market
Hot mulled wine…mmmm.
The sweet little Stella Maxine.
My favorites!!! Margaux and Stella. I hate how far Chicago will be from Southern California 🙁
Super amazing jellyfish installation at Renegade Craft Fair.
The crowds were crazy this year.
Some of my handprinted gift tags.
One of Margaux’s beautiful baked creations. She made these delicious looking s’mores cupcakes for Mark’s birthday. I couldn’t eat one, but I sure appreciated how yummy they looked and the smile they put on my hubby’s face 🙂
Printed t-shirts for my yoga studio, East Meets West, with their new logo I designed.
A hot Tom & Jerry, a warm fire, Christmas music and lots of great friends. Pretty amazing stuff right there!
Making truffles is messy business, but boy is it worth it.
Those holiday cups at Starbucks sure make me happy!
The beet salad I had at Habitat in Pittsburgh was so good it was gone before I could take a pic 🙂 If you are in Pittsburgh, check that restaurant out. Great seasonal, local farm to table food with a special gluten-free menu. They even have gluten-free bread for sandwiches at lunch.
Christmas tree in Market Square Pittsburgh.
The view from the convention center in Pittsburgh where we were set up for the Handmade Arcade last weekend.
It was this or french fries for me at the convention center. Yay for will power. (But oooh were those fries calling my name.)
One more friends dinner for Tom and Jerrys. This time at the Buffalo classic, Schwabls.
Flavored finishing sea salts. Look for the recipes on Sunday.
Amazing illustration from a vintage children’s book in our collection.
I finally made time to bake last night. I made these amazing grain-free chocolate chip cookies from Against All Grain and topped them with some vanilla sea salt.
Our cat Indie, being silly last night while laying on Mark’s lap.
