I’d forgotten how much I enjoy running in the rain.
No, really…it’s great!
Sure, you might get a little drenched to start with, maybe a little chilly, and you have to avoid the puddles if you don’t want to feel like you’re running with wet sponges on your feet, but by the end….AHHHH, that sweet, refreshing, strip-to-the-tee-shirt, bring-it-on feeling is like no other. When your heart is pounding, and your lungs are straining, there’s nothing much better than that lovely, cooling joy of rain drops streaming down your face and arms, drenching your head.
O.K., so maybe I’m crazy…but I KNOW I’m not the only one out there who feels that way. Really. Comm’on fellow runners, don’t leave me hangin’ here!
Fine then…moving on.
So, after my lovely run in the rain (and a hot shower…no better way to end a rainy run!), I settled down at my work space (AKA, my dining room table), and gave my sewing machine a run for its money.
My booth-mate buddy, Shanna, has been after me to make some mini notebook covers for a while now. She thinks my pad-folio sized ones are great and is certain that pocket-sized ones would be fantastic, too.
So I made some…
I’m super excited about them! And I’ll be making more today when I have my “play-date” with my sewing buddy, Caren.
Oh! I almost forgot! SO EXCITED!
Shanna and I have been accepted to be vendors at the locally-renowned-and-crazy-fun summer craft fair, Picnic Portland, this year! We had such a blast last year! Here, have a look:
Doesn’t that look like fun!? If you’re in the Portland, Maine, area at the end of August, you should come stop by and say ‘hello!’ There are a bunch of amazing vendors, live music, and some of the coolest stuff that you never knew you needed!
