Ben & I spent a grand, extra long weekend in Marble Falls with Jim & Idie. We were so thankful for the time spent with them & for the restful visit that it was.
Check out the AMAZING pumpkin patch that we visited at Sweet Berry Farms. If you are in the MF area--you have to visit!
They had lots great of photo ops with pumpkins, trailers, bails of hay, etc...
jim & idie (resisting my attempt to take their picture..haha) in front of the "stuff a scarecrow" barn! How cool is that!?
behind ben & jim is a pumpkin painting area, a petting zoo, a field to pick fresh flowers in, and the list of wonderful fall attractions goes on. they even had a corn maze!
in the spring this farm is a strawberry & blackberry picking farm. these are rows of strawberry plants.
and i couldn't resist this one. since we didn't have any cute little kids to take photos w/ at the pumpkin patch, ben was forced to be the stand in model. you can tell he's loving it, right?
Oh and after all our pumpkin farm fun, I did actually get a pumpkin....a Fairytale pumpkin.
Look's like it's straight out of Cinderella, no?

So.... some of you know this, and probably most of you don't. So here I am, spilling my desire & my new venture all at once. For about two years, or really ever since I started sewing and creating handmade purses and other crafty things, I have had this huge desire to start a fabric shop. Ben & I have tossed around the idea for the past year and a half, prayed about it, let it sit and marinade, and have waited. When we moved to San Angelo, we both decided it would be a good time to turn these dreams into a reality. I have been working on the logistics ever since we moved, to get things in order for starting this venture & I AM SOOOO EXCITED because the day is finally here & my shop is up an RUNNING!!!
My Sunshine Fabric, or My Little Sunshine, however you wish to call it---was birthed out of my love for creating. A love, which can be largely credited to my grandmothers, Sunshine & Mary Ruth. They both spent countless and fondly remembered hours with me, teaching me to to sew and to paint. I grew up wanting to become an artist, largely due to their influence & time spent with me creating things. My grandmother, Sunshine, opened up her own home decor shop in her younger years, to share her creative juices with others & now I am doing the same. In a way, it's my little piece of her, my Sunshine, who is now with Jesus.
Check out the shop here:
We are starting out small, but are excited for the opportunity! I am basking in the thrill of having bolts of fabric in my home! Enjoy & feel free to share with others!
