Happy Advent + Fall in Review

Happy Advent season, everyone! It's my favorite time of year! Caryn and I finally finished our Advent calendars that we started at the beginning of the year, and now mine is happily hanging in my front hall. And Ryan has happily been eating the little candy canes that are in the pockets!

A lot has happened this Fall, hence the lack of blogging. Last weekend I turned the big 3-0. Ryan took my to Solvang (an adorable Scandinavian town in Southern California) to celebrate. It was the best! Here we are at Buttonwood Farms Winery:

And the weekend before that, my crafting partner Beth and I took the OC Lucia fair by storm! This was our first year at this fair and definitely learned a lot. We were super busy all of November just trying to get our inventory up. Overall, the fair went well and we are really looking forward to the Los Angeles Lucia fair coming up on December 15. If you live in the area you should really check it out, they do a bang up job with the program.

One of my new projects this year are these Dala Horse chalkboards! I love that I can change the sign for any season. I'm going to hang one that says God Jul for Christmas. I also just added this item to my Etsy shop!

(I know the picture isn't the best, I'll try to get a better one soon)

With work, roller derby, and crafting, this Fall has been crazy busy for me! But I am so excited that Christmas is around the corner! And before you know it the Scandinavian Christmas series will be here! Starting December 13, get ready to hear from bloggers from all over about a great Scandinavian tradition, craft, or recipe. And if you know anyone that would like to participate, I'm still looking for a couple more entries so e-mail me! 

Happy Advent!
