The holiday weekend proved to be a non-stop whirlwind of activities... we had quite an impromptu crowd Friday night, and i managed to throw together ribs on the grill, coleslaw & roasted sweet potatoes. We stayed up into wee hours of the night by the campfire chatting & socializing.
Saturday morning Big D. and I roused ourselves up early enough to play outside and we finished our stone walkway. A proccess that has taken us about three summers, this little part in the front was the last bit to be done.
Sunday We took the boat out of Wiscasset, Maine & headed to Robinhood, where we stopped and had lunch at The Osprey. Here's Miss Jolene, my Sweet Mojo partner. It is tradition that her and Mikey get the first boatride of the season. (fellow fishermen not included)
Lots of gorgeous views, and these canadian geese did not seem to be bothered by our appearance, and posed appropriately.......
I also managed to squeeze in a trade with one of my favorite crafters, Kirsten of Anabel Fuzz.
Since Jolene and I are going to be hitting some summer markets with our products, I had to think about style, comfort & a little organization. She'll custom design your vendor apron for you!! And I love her retro fabrics!
I have to share with you my new summer scent that I have been wearing every day from Sweet Mojo...... it's called Sunbeam. I have managed to turn several of our customers here in the area into Sunbeam addicts! Including my best friend Brodie who has been coming to the workshop on Fridays to help us. I love a girl who works for product! It was funny, because I was into our floral-garden-like scents this early spring (Butterfly Girl, Fairy Lore & Happy Wings to name a few) as I think I must've been craving my perennial gardens. Once summer hit, I switched to Sunbeam. I'm totally loving that I've got all of these sweet-smelling options at my fingertips these days!

It is a mix of Sweet Orange, Neroli & Vetiver. It is so fresh and summery, and best of all, I have been told I smell good from strangers at the grocery store!! It makes me think of sunshine & blossoms.....
We have a family gathering down the road this afternoon, so I am up early to get groceries. There is a church down the road from me that always has THE BEST lawn sale, so I'm strategizing to be one of the first in line when the doors open!

What did you do for your holiday weekend?? Leave us your link in the comments if you posted... we'd love to see!

  2. I LOVE this scent too! It's actually the one I ordered. I tried the scrub too and it's AWESOME! It's definitely on my "to purchase" list. I've been a little behind on my blog posts, but Sweet Mojo is my next post; I'll let you know. Keep enjoying your beautiful summer! Sheila

  3. Okay, have to order a custom apron, what a fun idea. Thanks Jes. And your products, especially the scrubs, look yummy!! I'll give them a try one of these days. Just too much going on right now!! Take care, big hug. Riki

  4. Riki... I'm telling you, I was just so impressed with this apron! I wish I could explain how the fabric feels... it's ultra soft, yet she has many layers of fabrics, so it's super durable. And it really is prettier in person...

    Sheila... have I told you lately that you rock?

  5. Jessica: My post is up :-) Have a great day...Sheila

  6. YAY the walkway is finished!! Love the cute aprons.
