croppin' on the keuka

we still have seats available for croppin' on the keuka! the crop is this saturday. it begins at 10 am and ends at 7 pm. we have included lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, dessert, beverages, goodie bags, door prizes, and raffles in the registration fee. the registration fee is $45 and inky hot mess is donating $10 from each registration fee to the humane society of yates county!

for lunch we are having deli sandwiches, cole slaw, and macaroni salad. the afternoon snack will be chips and dips. our dinner is a hot dinner. we will be having baked ziti, meatballs, sausage, italian zucchini, garden salad with your choice of dressing, and italian bread with butter. we are offering a chocolate bar for dessert. bottled water, coca~cola, sprite, diet coke, and iced tea are the beverages available.

a special note....inky hot mess believes in our community and the people who call the finger lakes home. just about all of the produce is grown here in the finger lakes. we purchase it directly form local farms. there are a few items we are not able to get locally.....if we find them we will in the future! the sausage and meat used in our meatballs are also raised locally and purchased from bostrom farms.

the crop is all indoors. the building sits just off of the coast of keuka lake. the view is absolutely stunning!

please contact us if you would like to attend! we would love to have you!

BIg Shake Up at the House

Seriously. I am a tad on the crazy side. I'm downsizing my studio! I have gone through everything and have parted with lots of things....there maybe more as I move. Yup. I'm leaving the largest room in the house and moving to a room half the size. Gulp.

Not everything is moving with me. Our albums are staying put. My quilting is also staying put. My business has moved out of the room as well.

Here's hoping this all works out! I did buy some new furniture. I have been working on loading them up today.

There will be a tour when I'm done....

Have you any idea how many ink pads I have? Oh good grief! There's inks I didn't even know I had. I still have the first inky pad I ever bought!

Normally, I just use my Close To My Heart ink pads because they are handy. I keep them out so I can use them. But I have inks from all kinds of places. I put my Close To My Heart inks in the bottom of my drawer units. Shock and awe, right? I plan on using other inks for awhile and getting some rotation in there. I have soooooo many colors to choose from. It's crazy!

The embossing powders were also moved and now I can find them without digging through a bucket of them. The glitters and flock are up next!

Hold onto your hat! It's going to be a bumpy ride. :)
