I think we’ve finally landed on our dream bed combo. Not that we’d been complaining much (at least not around these parts), but after an innocent sheet purchase on LuxeYard – they’re more gray than blue, although these photos would suggest otherwise – I casually mentioned to Scott that perhaps we should switch up our…

    “In any case…?”

    “There is one downside…?”

    Were the bedding puns intended?ReplyCancel

    Mike, HA! Not intended, but good call.ReplyCancel


With the upcoming holiday season and a whole lot of Renegade on the brain, we’ve been busy, busy bees brainstorming, prepping and trying to maintain a sense of calm around this home. Because, you see, it’s this time of year that has us working longer hours on Pet Shop-y things – you know, like the…
  • Sam - November 1, 2012 - 8:44 AM

    We’ve never heard of Renegade, but wish we could go! Have fun – thanks for the tips. I’m hoping to have a booth one day, and you shared a lot of helpful advice!

    This is a dream of mine! Bookmarking this entry for someday when I finally have the courage to apply… :)ReplyCancel

  • Jessie - November 1, 2012 - 9:18 AM

    I didn’t read any of them since there’s no craft fair booth in my foreseeable future, but the Sew Mama Sew blog just did a series of posts on craft fair prep, displays, etc. http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/ReplyCancel

  • Kim - November 1, 2012 - 9:29 AM

    Alfred, you MUST apply! We need snoods in our lives!

    Jessie, thanks for the link! I love catching up on everyone’s tips at this time of year.ReplyCancel

  • Stesse - November 1, 2012 - 9:30 AM

    Just reading about the upcoming fair makes me all excited for the Christmas season! Any recommendations for other craft fairs like Renegade in other cities(since a trip to the middle of the country isn’t in my immediate future)? I feel like there should be a list or site somewhere with stuff like this, but my Google-fu is failing me.ReplyCancel

  • Kim - November 1, 2012 - 10:05 AM

    Hmm, there SHOULD be some list like that somewhere!

    Stesse, where are you located? Renegade is spread in many cities all over the country. Have you tried Googling your city’s name + “holiday fair”?ReplyCancel

  • Tyrell Cannon - November 1, 2012 - 12:43 PM

    Good advice guys! I’ll be there helping Tina (http://tytinjewelry.blogspot.com/) as well! We’re excited to see ya’ll there. High fives for Renegade goodness!ReplyCancel

    I can’t wait to go to the Renegade Craft Fair here in Austin. It will be my first time going. :)ReplyCancel

    Kim- I love looking at your pet portraits. Is there a digital copy of your Blurb portfolio book that we can check out? I’d love to see the side-by-side comparisons with the pet photos.ReplyCancel

  • Kim - November 6, 2012 - 11:17 AM

    Hi Amber, thank you! There isn’t one, but I’ll definitely keep your suggestion in mind! I’ll be making an updated book this year, and I can see about making it available through Blurb.ReplyCancel

  • Trude - November 9, 2012 - 5:09 PM

    Even though I’m a portrait photog and don’t do physical sales, I’ve done vendor booths before and this is super duper helpful! Love the idea of the bed risers to help bring up the table – genius! :) Thank you so much for sharing.ReplyCancel


Wishing you a happy, candy-filled Halloween!

  • Liliana - November 5, 2012 - 9:56 AM

    LOVE him! And great costume! Suits him perfectly = ) May I ask, where did you find it, or did you just put it all together?

    I did not dress any of my fur babies, and I am regretting it. I may just have to dress’um up to take pictures, ha.


    • Kim - November 5, 2012 - 10:32 AM

      Thanks, Liliana! We pulled it together using a few leftover props from a pirate birthday party we attended, and the black hoodie is his own!ReplyCancel

    How long did Jack go around wearing that eyepatch and scarf? He looks amazingly calm in his costume. hahaReplyCancel

    We took it off shortly after the photos, but he didn’t mind one bit!ReplyCancel
