Talented Artists + Baked Goods = Fun Art Market!

Jess from Son of a Gun had a really fun little market today called Colonial Market. I met some amazing, talented girls, had a fun time with my friend Stephanie and introduced Cherry Runway to some lovely folks. :)

Setting up my table is becoming more fun which is a lovely thing indeed! Alas, my table needs a total refresher course, if you have any ideas please let me know! :)

Foot Twins

Christina and I were foot twins..only her injury made mine look like a silly accident. Goodness..i hope you heal soon Christina!

Sara and Stephanie

Sara from Lily Flys Garden makes really fun jewelry for such affordable prices. I bought a sweet little headband from her too!

Stephanie from Polka Dots and Daisies Bakery

Stephanie is super awesome, and woke up SUPER early to come to my house at 6am to get to the show.

I had a really great afternoon, and hope I get the privilege to see all these amazing ladies again. I am SO game for a craft day! Let me know when you're interested in having one! :)

Operation: Crutches

Life continues to be complicated in my [outside of Cherry Runway] world. I AM officially off crutches which in theory is great, but walking on my foot is hurting me and i finally have to start talking my aspirin/pain killers which I've managed NOT to take any of until now.

That kind of bums me out.

I'm also really scared someone might step on me since i can't wear shoes yet, and stepping on rocks has not been fun. Lastly, i am officially NOT allowed to exercise at all for another two months which literally made me cry at the clinic. I feel icky, and love walks and am really sad i have to wait so much longer to start going on walks or doing Kung Fu again.

Would you like some asprin with your pity party?'s been so long. So sad. I've been MIA from the Internet world really..

I know i know..this is a Cherry Runway blog, but honestly, Cherry Runway has been the furthest thing from my mind as of late, and i feel somewhat guilty so i wanted to share a smidgen of my life for the last few weeks.

jendr -- quality picture? not to much. Meaningful picture? yes sir!

It has also been four? weeks now since my accident, of which, i am still on crutches for at least another three weeks. My gosh...i will try to never take for granted how easy it's easy to do things normally like go grocery shopping, walk to your mailbox, or even pick things up around the house. I haven't even fully unpacked from Renegade, or written out thank you notes to customers which is horrid, but i can't walk around. :( It's been weeks and I'm getting kind of frustrated, and tired that i need help to do EVERYTHING now. I can't even shower like a normal person. It's crazy.

On the bright side, the blessing of all of this, is knowing i AM capable of taking care of myself, of changing my bandages, or getting by for weeks on crutches, and for infinite trips to the clinic. I know I can handle these things without much help, and for that i am thankful. :)

PLUS it hasn't been all bad. I have actually had a real social life [offline] for once, which is kind of strange for me. ha! With this social life comes return of cooking, and playing my guitar which for those i am so thankful. These two have been major blessing in my life right now.




Brian and Amanda (who although are the 2nd of those names to be my friends) are number 1's to me! :) They are both gerat friends with amazing hearts and hearty appities. They have done everything from picked me up to go to Walmart, or church, to stay 17 hours just to hang, play guitar and cook great food. I am very appreaciative of both of you. [even if you won't see this because you don't read my blog!, lol] :)
