I've fallen behind in my blogging duties. Honestly I haven't had any motivation lately to spend any time in blog land other than catching up with MY favorite blogs. I've never been a good writer and more often than not don't have anything spectacular to share.
I have stayed pretty busy though getting ready for Cooper's Closet (a bi-annual children's consignment event that allows a few vendors with hand-made crafts to set up shop). I've done it for a few years now but this time I reserved two tables instead of one and although I worried about not having enough product to fill two tables, I ended up having more than enough! I also monogrammed onsite and that was an experience! I never got bored, that's for sure. My machine never stopped the entire 4 days, it was insane. Thank you to all of you who came out!
I had such a good time this year. Even if I hadn't sold a thing, it would have been fun because of the two ladies that occupied the tables around me. We got along so well and just laughed and laughed the whole time. Jean makes the CUTEST bows and bow holders and Stephanie creates some beautiful monogrammed jewelry.
I had to take pictures after the sale closed on the second day. I forgot the first day when our tables looked full! Poor Jean couldn't keep hers filled and her fingers had to be so sore from making as many bows on the spot as she did.
We all did very well at the sale and I hope we will all return in the Spring. I know I plan to come back. I'm also hoping to have a Winter Bizarre in my home possibly in October. I've asked Jean and Stephanie to bring their goodies to so that all our friends can do some Christmas shopping while enjoying each other's company and just hanging out. I may ask a few other crafty friends to join us as well.....
I am taking the week off since last week took all my energy out of me. And I'm enjoying every minute of it :) Please remember to keep all those affected by Ike in your prayers. Marie, I'm praying for you and your family if you read this!
