I'll see you at the rainbow bridge

Hi everyone!  I'm starting to feel like life I'm chasing the day, the week, the month, where does all the time go?  Crafty Wonderland was a huge success for Kiss Me Kitty.  Cristi and I had another great time meeting like minded freaks with a love of color.  I even had a chance to give a big ole hug to Gracey from Fashion for Giants, she wears her happiness on the outside and I just adored her.  Sorry no pictures, I've been real bad about that lately but like to think it's because I'm more present in the moment :)  Here are some shots from the weekend.
 Check out the banner Cristi made, pretty cute huh.  She also added a new rack for dresses.
 Looking gorgeous!
 We were across from this vendor and I bought Chris a few things and I had to have that green sweatshirt with the tongue.
 I also loved this brand Flat Track revolution, stuff for Derby Girls:)
 I did get a cool purse from them.
 We had a special visitor, the beautiful Bettylou!
 Cristi made her a pair of pink mermaid leggings.
 and her visit made our day.
Tammy came by too and I forgot to take a picture and she gave me these for my Birthday.  Cute huh!
  This was Cristi's favorite artist.  Her stuff has gorgeous and made out of wax.

 They had a photo booth there so of course we had to take this!
After a wonderful weekend of so many happy things it was rough hearing that Sunny was laid to rest on Saturday.
 Peetee and Sunny have known each other since I moved to Oregon in 2006.

 They have camped together, ran together and slept together.
 Sunny before all her gray and Peetee before he lost all his hair.
I really miss this girl.  Peetee and I were lucky to have known such a love!  Things just won't be the same without her and I can't stop crying when I think that she's gone.  Her folks gave her every bit of love they had and she gave it back ten fold.

Rest in peace Sunny, I love you and miss you always.

Those photos of Peetee and Sunny trotting along the beach as just magical, what a sweet pair they made. We expect to outlive our pets but its never easy when their time comes. RIP Sunny.
Looks like the weekend was awesome. The Kiss Me Kitty stall looks outstanding & such temptation from the stands opposite, too. We certainly don't have anything that cool here.
Love your insane Xmas jumpers and the photobooth shot. Bettylou looks so happy with her new leggings.
Speak soon? Love ya! xxxxxxx

The loss of a beloved animal can truly brake ones heart , its so painful...

That is so sad that Peetee has lost his pal, and you can't explain to him where she went. Sounds like she had the best possible life with people that loved her.

If I saw the two of you (wo)manning a booth I'd be over there as quick as a bunny! Betty Lou is such a little sweetie, especially in her Christmas dress. Cristi is so nice to make her the leggings - that little girl adores both of you.

Oooh, Roller Derby bags! I will be telling my BFF who is on the roller derby team here.

Aw, Betty Lou is such a sweetie; she must be so stoked to have such lovely friends like you and Cristi! The mermaid leggings are perfect!
Very sad news about Sunny. Those are some glorious pix of her and Peetee rocking about. Bloody animals, they rip our guts out!
Rock ON, Kiss Me Kitty! The stall looks amazing. I'm so impressed with Cristi's skills and work. There's some nighty awesome talent up there in Portland, mine eyes are bedazzled!!!
Good to see you gals embracing the loony side of Xmas!

I 'm so sorry to read about Sunny, the photos with Peetee are so heartwarming, they were such a great pair of cute friends! All my love goes to Sunny and her family!
You and Cristi made my day too! The fair and the stall was awesome and Cristi's wonderful creations deserve a lot of success! The Christmas photo booth is amazing, especially the sweaters you are wearing and the Huge lollipop!
I love you more than Santa!

Poor old Sunny! It's awful losing our furry friends. They touch us so. But those pics of her and Peetee in their glory days are fabulous.

Talking of fabulous, look at you and Cristi. You are just wonderful together, so full of joy and playfulness. No wonder Betty Lou can't resist you. love the Christmas photo booth and the bunting. How's your dad? Xxxxx

I am so sorry to hear about Sunny. They were lucky to have loved and known each other while they did. :)
Love the new rack in the kmk store. :)

Poor Sunny.
Everything else looks really fun--that art looks very cool! You and Christi look amazing! Is she making children's legging now, too?

pastcaring said...

Oh, so sorry about poor darling Sunny, that's sad. These critters, they paddy-paw their way into our hearts big time, don't they?
Looks like you and Cristi had tons of fun doing the market together, as always the Kiss Me Kitty stall looks incredibly colourful and vibrant. Ahh, and there's little Bettylou, so cute! Love the art too. xxxx

Victoria Rickert said...

You all look like you had a ton of fun! Sweet jacket and great booths, Merry Christmas and have a fantastic New Year!


Trees said...

Oh I am sorry to hear about Peetee's friend Sunny. So sad. But on a brighter note, it looks like the market was super fun! I hope that it was a sucessful day and how cute is Marylou!

Melanie said...

Bettylou looks so Christmasy and how much fun she'll have wearing her brand new mermaid leggings. I'm glad you and Cristi did so well - her new banner is great.
And I'm glad that your lives were so enriched by Sunny. She's sleeping now. Sad. But I hope she visits in your dreams.

Sandra said...

I am so sorry to hear about Sunny, it is so sad, they are family I think and we love them dearly, and we are loved right back.
It's lovely to see Betty Lou in her festive lovely dress, she is adorable and with new mermaid leggings too! the KMK stall is looking awesome and the bags are so cool! x x x

Tamera Wolfe said...

RIP Sunny.
I love seeing the pix of Pink Haired Punk Peetee!!

AAAAWWWW Betty Lou is just so so ADORABLE!!

WOW--the KMK setup is fantastic!! You both looked amazing!!!

Hollie "Jet" Black-Ramsey said...

It's still so crazy seeing what's the norm where you live versus where I live. Oh, man I know I've said it a million times, but sheesh I'm living in the wrong city!! It would be so nice to go to a fair that wasn't selling cowboy figurines and sculptures made from horseshoes...

Anne said...

Nice seeing you, Krista! Sorry to have missed Cristi. But we are definitely having our clothes shopping and maybe lunch date next month when you both are less busy. I did not see that funny photo booth, but boy are you two cute! xo

Melanie said...

Oh poor Sunny :( My mother showed me the Rainbow Bridge poem years ago now and I burst out crying, it still makes me blubber if I think about it.

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

You two made Bettylou's day!! I can certainly see why she made your's too, she looks like an absolute darling. The tongue sweatshirt and derby gear ... gorgeous or what?! Christ's stall looked fantastic. We've never met but I feel so happy that you and Christi have found one another, you both seem to have so much in common and share a love of squeezing the best out of life. It's wonderful to see and we don't need pics to document everything, although it's wonderful to see, but sometimes one simply must live in the moment. xoxoxoxoxo
