it's our blog-iversary!

I feel like 3 years deserves a bigger celebration, but things are so stinkin' crazy around here. So instead of physically celebrating, I thought we could look back on all the significant things that have happened this year with Hey Wanderer. I find it's very beneficial and encouraging to remember where you started, where you have been, and how far you've actually come.

1. We changed our blog name to Hey Wanderer and changed our mission.
2. I quit my job to pursue Hey Wanderer full time.
3. We tried to blog every day, but only successfully did that for one month.
4. We started making kimonos and selling them, and other things as well.
5. We bought our first full hide of leather.
6. We just had a Christmas market at our house with 10 vendors.
7. We got a serger this week, and our lives have been changed.
8. We are doing three shows this weekend selling Hey Wanderer merchandise.
9. We still haven't bought a chair that is suitable for sewing in all day.

I'm sure there are many many other things that haven't remembered, but we can always add to the list, or write another. We like making lists. :)

Happy Blog-iversary Hey Wanderer!

instant film on a christmas tree

Guys, we have been neglecting the blog, but I will say that it is for good reason. We have been working really hard on our Hey Wanderer brand and doing a lot of festivals and pop-up shops. We are hoping to get a lot of our merchandise online soon so everyone can have access to it. We have big dreams for our brand and one day soon we will share the details with you. For now, let's talk about this Christmas tree. We took a lot of instax wide pictures at Casey's birthday dinner and needed a place to display them so Casey jokingly clothes-pinned them to the tree. But we all really liked it so now this is what our tree looks like.
Our Christmas tree is pretty random, so I guess it fits us just fine.
Just thought we'd share this with you so you too could have a new place to display your instant film. We have 3 instant film cameras so we are always needing a place to display these guys. How do you display your instant film?

29 years, a tambourine and a waffle bar

Casey's birthday was a few days ago and to celebrate, we had a few friends over for a dinner party. We had a waffle bar and every guest brought something fun to put on waffles. It was pretty interesting to say the least.
We had maple candied bacon, regular bacon, white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, cherry whipped cream, regular whipped cream, cream cheese icing, fresh fruit, chili, nacho cheese, shredded cheese, chocolate sauce and hashbrowns. It may sound crazy and weird, but it was delicious and perfect. Casey is a little obsessed with waffles, hence the waffle bar.
We just set up an extra table in the dining room and hung up some lights to make it festive. A couple of days after her birthday, we hosted a Christmas Market at our house, which is why there is a Christmas tree present. Casey loves roses so of course those were in the arrangements on the table.
We have sing alongs/ jam sessions constantly at our house and Casey had been joking for a while about needed a tambourine so she could join in. Also, she loves Stevie Nicks. So for her birthday, she got a tambourine, and we broke it in real good. No like, we actually broke it.
(This is our quote wall. This doubled in size this night.)
Casey got herself an instax wide camera for her birthday so we took a lot of pictures with it. This is the first picture we took, and it's probably one of the best ones.
And this is what our house looked like at the end of the party, except times about 10. Oh and Casey wasn't really turning 29, that was just a joke. But it was a delightful and simple night.

Happy Birthday Casey!
