It’s The Final Up-Load…Until After Art Fair

So this morning when I asked Kiara if I could “push the button” she sang “It’s the final up-load…” – This is our new Platinum version of “Final Countdown”

Now that the final bit of Platinum has loaded we are saving the rest of the beauties for Art Fair! And man do we have some beauties for you. Can not wait to see 435 transform into an Art Fair wonderland for you all, and it is getting close. Every time I go over there, the racks are getting fuller and fuller,  and there is still cutting and sewing to be done. Since this is my first Art Fair, I really have nothing to compare it to so I am constantly annoying the other girls with questions…I just need to mentally prepare myself for this!

For those of you that are planning on exploring good ole Fort Wayne when you are in town for Art Fair we have started a list of things for you!

Our first stop was the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo. You could literally spend the whole day there or even just a couple hours. They have so many fun exhibits and rides and Franke Park is right next door which is great for picnics.

I will take any excuse to go to the Zoo, including borrowing my friends kids, so last Sunday we took Lincoln and Paisley, oh and of course mama Carrie and Holden tagged along! We had so much fun! The weather was fantastic,  got us a little sun…it was just the perfect Sunday.

(Stole these pics from Kiara)

This is the fun log ride in the Australia exhibit. It goes all around “Australia” and you get to see all the animals! Kiara made me stand on the bridge to take this picture. Turned out great…cute kiddos

And here a just a few of the awesome animals at the zoo! I wish I had pictures of the giraffes…they are by far my favorite…I guess you’ll just have to check them out for yourself 🙂

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

I am going to see the Great Gatsby with Carrie…again…and possibly helping Tabitha and Jessica with some painting projects. I spend too much time with these girls…but they are pretty awesome 🙂

The Ft. Wayne Children’s Zoo is really one of the best in the nation! We love it. I think I have all the same pictures you posted, only with our kids in them instead. Looking forward to Art Fair!

And how about us working out of the house mama’s who are gone from our homes for 10 plus hours each day. Stalking the Plat site is a no-no at my work.

Hope y’all have fun at art fair!

Can y’all maybe factor in west coast mamas before “pushing the button”. 6-ish am is a little rough!

It made my day when Plat loaded this morning!! I’ve never had the privilege of going to Art Fair because it’s so far from S.C. This Plat load was my Art Fair and boy did I score!! Thank you so much for all the beautiful clothes. My little grand daughter Emmi Kate loves them and so do I!! XOXO
