25 years

Just a quick post since it's already past my 8 PM bedtime....  4 AM comes really early!

Busy, busy, busy...  A week ago was our local craft fair.

Happy to report I had the best show I've had in years!  Funny, because I had not a new item in the lineup :)

Still working overtime.  Five 10 hour days are the norm, and I volunteer for Saturdays unless I have something else (like the craft fair) scheduled.  Makes for not much time to do anything else. Sundays are pretty much catch up with the laundry, cooking and housework (ya right).

This past Sunday was our annual 4-H Recognition Event.  Believe it or not, this young chick got her 25 year as a leader pin.  Seriously???? How did that happen?  LOL   I started as a leader before I even had kids.  Think I'm a lifer :)

It's an actual Emerald, I think... My birthstone, too!

I'm up late tonite because of a little contest my workplace is having.  I'm decorating a box for the food pantry giveaway.  Makes me think of valentine day boxes!  I loved doing those!  There is a little prize available.  What do ya think, do I have a chance?

I had to scrounge a bit, seems all my crafty stuff has diminished over the years since I'm not actively buying more stuff!  Took me awhile to find my glue gun ~ for shame!  What kind of crafter am I that I can't find my glue gun!  HA  I had to be funny, his butt says "gobble gobble"  :)

All for now,

Long time no see...

Yep, it's been awhile again.

Weaving news for a change!

Well, kinda weaving...  I've got a craft fair tomorrow.  I'm selling older stock, plus some refinished furniture type stuff. 

This is the fair that a friend and I promote.  We do all the planning, renting, inviting, setting up, tearing down, advertising, etc.  We have found a sponsor in the local Lions Club.  They do the luncheon and get all proceeds from that ~ and they carry the liability insurance that the school auditorium requires to rent.  We get the profit, if there is any, from the booth rent.

Makes for a long day, but it's rewarding.  We are providing a venue for locals to sell and promote their businesses, and having something for people to do on a Sunday when no other stores are open in this smallish town.

We're hoping for a good crowd.  Not too nice outside to keep everyone away doing fall outdoor fun stuff, but not so nasty to keep people home.  The weather man prediction is right about where we want it to be! 

I'm also launching a new business for my daughter. 

Introducing, Leah Photography!  I offered to do this first test show for her here in her hometown.  Kinda get the bugs out. 

Here's her website if you'd like to see some of her other photos that are available.


Proud mom here :)  

All for now, JULIE
