We began our shop on Etsy but have found over the past two months that we're desiring a more personal approach to selling our hand-made products. We wanted an outlet that is more hobby related and something that could offer a more personal touch (posting photos of bags and listings about how the shop is going, events, specials, etc). I plan to post more later with details on what we plan to do over the next few months, but for now please check out the blog and see what you think.
We love feedback and maybe there's the perfect bag for you!! The pictures don't do justice but that's where we have to start for now. Stay tuned for more info to come, and follow the indie sisters blog to learn about specials, events, and new styles for release!! (for example...our beach bag will make its debut any day now)
PS: The etsy shop will remain active for the next month, but will be phased out as the blog begins to take more precedence. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any purchase or custom order inquiries.
We think he's just the cutest :) I love how big his ears and paws were back then...still pretty big today though.
I love how he looks at me like I'm interrupting some romantic moment he's having with Matt!
For those that don't know, we have some really good bowlers in the family and John (our uncle) actually bowled a perfect 300 recently. It doesn't run in my blood however, I'm happy with breaking 100.
The big news in Rufus' life is that he's 1/2 way done with his obedience training. We were making him practice his sit-stays, come fronts and heel while we were on the hike. Poor thing had a lot of distractions with animals, trees and being outside but he did a really good job!! We're all a little happier with an obedient dog. However, we still have a long way to go.
Ending a long day of fun-loving, quality time together. Thanks to Matt for thinking of taking a hiking at Eagle Creek! It was tons of fun and we can't wait to do it again, maybe it will be a little warmer next time.
Matt playing with his new Snow Blower that he got for Christmas! It came just in time & look at what a good job it's doing :)
This picture is hard to see, but I was scraping my car to go to the dog park and Rufus wanted to wait inside. I asked him repeatedly if he wanted to come inside (while we changed) but he insisted on staying out there till we left. So we started the heat and he sat in the car until we went! So funny. He continues to make us laugh on a daily basis.
Playing at the Bark Park. Matt was playing with snow balls and I swear Ru ran up to him and did this on his own. So I grabbed the camera to get this silly shot! He's so fun.
The picture won't turn the right direction, but here he is getting his post-snow wipe down & for some reason he got really crazy. So he jumped up on the couch and snorted and wiggled until he was all dry. Hilarious!
All the pretty lights made for a great picture. It was a little cold though, but the snow made it actually feel like Christmas time.
Matt and Bella giving me a really big CHEEEESE.
Bella & Johnny all ready to ride the train. She refused to wear her hat, so her hair was freezing and soaking wet. Three year olds are crazy sometimes.
The whole gang ready to ride the train, unfortunately Matt had to take the picture so he isn't in his seat with me yet. It was a little crowded with two long-legged people in a child's train. haha.
Helping Matt put the train together and inspecting it for anything fun to chew!
I love the intensity here...he was so excited to get it all set up and working!
He was unsure of how to feel about the train when it was on, but overall he did really well.
As far as the decorating is concerned, we both had to compromise for what the end result woud promise....a beautiful little bungalow all bright & snuggly for the holidays! Matt wanted the retro C7 lights on the outside, while I wanted clean/classic white lights inside....Rufus voted for anything fun to chew up. (He chose all the great bows that I put on the presents) Needless to say, the bows aren't very pretty anymore.
Now that the stockings are hung and the presents are wrapped, we've settled in for a nice enjoyable Christmas as a new family. It's been so fun already and I can't wait until the Christmas Eve & morning festivities begin.
Thankfully the tree wasn't too tall, it was just right!
This is when I started to get nervous...but he did go skydiving 6 months ago so we figured he would do just fine!
Of course we had to decorate Rufus, too! I promise he loves us.
