When I started this blog I was pretty convinced I only wanted it to be about the new business venture I was beginning. But you know that saying, "It takes a village..." It has become increasingly apparent to me that I am not alone on this journey. Well, I mean I KNEW that, but I bet other readers wondered why I seemed to be an island out here floating about painting furniture and other things that don't move fast enough. It's really about time that I introduce you to more of the Twice Nice team. I think I'll probably open up the blog to more family and personal posts from time to time. After all, this little group of mine influences all I do really! Shhhhh, don't tell them they have that much power!
The Spring here in Nebraska has been glorious. I mean just super, super gorgeous. We'll worry about the shoe dropping in July OK?! I have been able to get out in the workshop so much earlier this year and have been able to really amp up production. Much of my recent work has been custom work, a few more new pieces for the Spring Market (see the button above for details), and some new pieces for a new opportunity (details to follow soon). Sometimes it's overwhelming and I just spin around not sure what I should do first, but it's always fun. It's also fun to just stop the work and spend a day with my family! That's what we did on Sunday after church. Here's a slice of that afternoon and some introductions.
Part of what drove our day was the Church's Sr. High Youth Groups participation at Camp Fontenelle's Gaga Ball Tournament. Not familiar with Gaga Ball, well until recently neither were we, but it is apparently quite addicting if these kids are any indication.
While we were at Camp for the Gaga Tournament, there was plenty else around for everyone. Sand Volleyball, Laser Tag, a Jumping Pillow, Easter Egg dyeing and hunting, and live bunnies to play with. We avoided the latter as they had babies ready to be adopted! Ellarie, my youngest 6 year old daughter opted to climb a tree.
Our middle child Madison, 14, was with us at camp, and off enjoying many of the activities with the Sr. High kids for the afternoon. But here is her big moment.
I have 3 young ladies, all growing up way too quickly. All doing great things and staying healthy in mind, body, and spirit! They are 3 of my biggest cheerleaders and even put up with the occasional, "Oh crap, I forgot to stop and make dinner, but would you look at this dresser!", moments. I LOVE them, and I am so blessed to be their Mom!
Hope to have a new reveal or two for you later this week!
