Well, there it is, folks.  Our LA debut!

We had so much fun vending at the Atwater Farmer’s Market last Sunday–that we’re going to do it again this Sunday!  Provided the 30% chance of rain in the forecast doesn’t manifest.  That would be an ironic ruse by Mother Nature after I was heard gloating about our SoCal weather in my last blog post..!

Speaking of Mothers, I hope anyone reading this who happens to be in the ‘hood will come up and see me at the market.  Especially because after this Sunday (May 5th), the next Sunday is Mother’s Day.  And we have lots of beautiful cards for the Mamas in your life.

I, for one, have been hard at work making and selling cards for Mamas.  (Which by the way is so special to me to have a hand in making the vehicle in which a person sends their love!)  BUT I have not yet caught a scent of any celebratory Mother’s Day preparations around my own home.  Like in honor of me!  Being a Mom is so great, it’s like having 2 birthdays a year!  I get just a tad excited about these things.  But Matt is like a vault–he never gives anything up before the actual holiday!  So I’m left waiting in dithery anticipation.

Matt has a classic memory of being in a department store as a kid.  He and his brother were buying each other gifts for Christmas.  Their parents took them to separate lines at the check-out to keep the surprise.  Little Matt was in his own world, when he heard his brother calling, “Matt…hey Matt!  Hey!  DON’T look over here!!”  Naturally he looked over there, and his brother was holding a huge ball in his arms.

His brother just got so excited about the surprise!  That is often how I feel.

Anyway, I’m really looking forward to the next couple Sundays.  So I just wanted to say that and also that I hope to see lots of happy card consumers and hi-sayers at the market.
