This and That

I've added a link to my sidebar for everyone to use to send a card to our Troops. Now that Thanksgiving is just a few days away please take a minute to let the Troops know your thinking about them and say Thank You. Really it only takes a minute I promise.

Now my shows were this past weekend, I think I've been talking getting ready for the shows since June. I would like to say Thank You to all the shoppers that came out in the cold to shop and spend their hard earned money with all of the crafter's.
All crafter's have been so concerned with the economy like it is right now and wondering would the people come out to shop for the Christmas season. Well the numbers were down a little bit this year and thats understandable.
I enjoy the shows, yes it's a lot of work but well worth it. You meet so many nice people and you get to see your regular customers from year to year. They are the best.
If your wondering what sold well for me this year, What else, ORNAMENTS!!!
Everyone loves the ornaments.

Now it's time to get ready for the big weekend. I know everyone is sorting through those old recipes handed down through the family over the years. There's probably a lot of cleaning and making everything nice for the family and friends coming in from out of town.
But don't forget to take some time for yourself. Don't run yourself ragged to the point of getting sick. That's no fun, trust me I know from years of experience. Your family is not coming to visit your house they are coming to spend time with you.
You know there is nothing better then everyone sitting around the table telling stories from the past that makes you laugh till your in tears, and just catching up with whats going on in one another's lives.

And if your a painter like me find yourself a pretty Christmas pattern and a turn on the Christmas music and enjoy a warm evening at home painting to your hearts content.
Home is where your heart is.

New Etsy Shop

It's been a while since I've been here, I've been getting ready for my shows and yes I am now the proud owner of a new Etsy Shop. It's brand new just listed my first items last night. If you have a minute go check it out
Right now I only have some ornaments listed but once my shows are over I'll be adding more items. The Santa Bells and a few of the Snowball face ornaments that you see in my slide show are listed there. This is a new learning experience for me I've never had an online shop so there are still some kinks to work out and some tweaking to be done. But I'll learn as I go. They have a very nice site and the Etsy people try to provide you with a lot of information to help you get set up.
