Restocked Craft Booth

Restocked Craft Booth

I added a few new things to my craft booth today. It was mostly little things, filler type stuff on the shelves and some hanging items on the pegboard. Stuff like that is really where my heart is. I like to take something old and […]

Vintage Sewing Machine Desk

Vintage Sewing Machine Desk

I found this fantastic vintage sewing machine base at a little picker’s heaven store near Ardmore, AL.  It’s just a little ways down the road from the guy who has a building full of stuff I mentioned earlier. I’m not even sure if the place […]

Craft Booth Update

Craft Booth Update

I’ve been crafting like crazy over here. I want to pack as much stuff as possible into my little space at University Pickers. I want people to walk in and just fall in love with that special something, or somethings! I love those booths that are so full of crafty goodness that your eye just doesn’t know what to stop on or go to next. That’s what I want! I apologize if some of these pictures are repeats. I forget what I have already photographed, and sometimes I have to move stuff around to get a new piece in and shown to its best advantage so that will result in some items being photographed on multiple days. Anyway, take a look and drop me a line to tell me what you think. And stop in at University Pickers if you are in the area!

OH! I have a sign now! I love it, it perfectly sums up my style and the stuff in my booth. Lael said it’s kind of hard to read with the “L” covered in flowers, but people always stumble over Lakauai anyway!

Craft Booth Update

Since I ran out of time yesterday getting my booth set up, I came back today to add some more pretties. A lot of this stuff was left over from an older craft booth I had at another store with a few new things I’ve […]

Sci-Quest Field Trip

The 2nd grade went on a field trip to Sci-Quest today.  Mrs. Porter was not able to go, because she had already planned on going with her daughter to the Space Center for her field trip.  She asked if I could go, since I knew the kids well and could help keep them under control.  Of course I was more than ready to go, I love field trips!!  Here is a picture of Mrs. Humphrey’s class (in orange, of course!) and Mrs. Porter’s (in red, of course!) before we went in.  Also, one of Lael and her friend Sumedha.

Luckily, Mrs. Porter’s class and Mrs. Humphrey’s class were in the same group so I was able to be there to watch Lael and her friends as well as Caeden.  The lighting in there is not really conducive to taking great photos, but I got a few that are decent.  I think the one exhibit that all the kids love is the water one.  There are plastic panels that you can slide in place to direct the stream of water or dam it up.  There is just something about water that all kids, regardless of their age cannot get enough of.  Another popular, fun exhibit was the bubbles.  The metal rings are huge and make equally huge bubbles if you lift it out of the bubble solution just right.  There is another one that some kids really enjoyed and others couldn’t take the time for.  It was one to build simple machines.  There were all sorts of connectors, conductors, transceivers, light bulbs, fans and battery packs.  There were also directions on how to make stuff, or the kids just wing it on their own.  It only took one girl to figure out how to make the fan operate to whet their curiosity and then it was GAME ON!  Caeden was able to build both the fan and light bulb machine.  He was so proud!!  Sci-Quest is a great place to go and spend an afternoon.  Most of the exhibits do not change, but the kids seem to enjoy them the same each time we go.

The Circus

I was very excited about going to the circus and the twins were excited about going to the circus. But, I am sad to say that we were all disappointed. I mean, it was fun – but it wasn’t terrifically cool like I remember it […]

Huntsville – #1

Kiplinger’s Personal Finance has ranked Huntsville No. 1 on its list of the 10 best cities of 2009. That is way cool! I knew I liked it here, but it’s nice to see that others thinks it’s a great city too! Here is the article: […]

Sci-Quest Visit

Sci-Quest Visit

We’ve been wanting to visit Sci-Quest for a while now here in Huntsville.  It is a science type hands-on center like the McWane Center in Birmingham.  This is what their website says:

Sci-Quest is a hands-on science center with more than 100 permanent, interactive exhibits in seven different subject areas. Unlike a typical “museum,” Sci-Quest’s exhibits are designed to engage, educate and entertain.

It is not nearly as big as the McWane Center, but the same type of fun stuff.  Actually a couple of the exhibits were exactly the same!  The kids had a blast!

Field Trip

The 1st grade had a field trip today.  Field trips are always fun, it doesn’t matter where you go.  Since I am Room Mom for Caeden’s class, I got to be a chaperone for his class.  The problem was, I got to be a chaperone […]

Liz Hurley Ribbon Run

Liz Hurley Ribbon Run

When Aimee first sent me the link to say that she was participating in this run, Liz Hurley Ribbon Run, and asking for friends to run with her, I was like ummm, nope not me! I don’t run. I hate to run! I always get […]
