Halloween is only 3 days away!

Can you believe how fast time is flying? Halloween is only 3 days away and I haven't even started decorating my yard for the Trick R' Treaters. I absolutely must do that today! LOL After that it will be time to get out the ol' Christmas decorations. At least I have already started my Christmas shopping - so I'm a step ahead of the game.

I was at our local mall a few days ago and JC Penney's already has all their Christmas decorations up. Wreaths and little trees and everything. The employees looked a little embarrassed by the Christmas finery when we haven't even had Halloween yet. Sad how retailers try to hurry the time up even more. It just makes us all older. Sigh.

Rose Festival is over - on to Christmas!

Well the Rose Festival Arts and Crafts show has come and gone! And what a great weekend it was! I sold lots of my jewelry pieces, a few of my handpainted pieces and I met some really nice customers and fellow vendors.

Time now to start thinking about the upcoming Christmas season. I will have some of my jewelry pieces at the Plantation Pines Christmas Tree farm gift shop starting Thanksgiving weekend. But for right now, I'm still trying to get all my current listings reactivated on etsy. Hope to finish that big job by tomorrow. My fingers are crossed. :)

Countdown to the big Arts and Crafts Show!!!

Only 4 more days to get ready before the big show this weekend!! I'm excited and nervous at the same time!

It's the weekend of the big Rose Festival and Parade, so there should be alot of people out and about in our fair city. This is always a big event and draws thousands of people from all over to see the majesty of the Rose Festival.

My fingers are crossed that it's a beautiful weekend with great temps like we've been having. That way everyone will want to stay outdoors, buying jewelry from moi! LOL

Getting ready for craft show!

I have a big (for me) craft show coming up in less than 2 weeks. AAARRRGGGH! I have so much to do I can't think straight. Luckily, I made a list, which I'm still adding to about 20 times a day. LOL
Just got a new shipment yesterday of really cool jewelry supplies, so I have to get beading. Check out my etsy shop, and if you see something you like, now's the time to buy. I'll be taking my entire inventory to the craft show, so it may not be in my etsy shop if you wait. ;)

Pumpkin Patch Day!

Well, it was another hot and sweaty day in Texas! Today was field trip day for my son's class and we went to the Pumpkin Farm. We did a hayride, picked a pumpkin, carved a pumpkin, pulled a plow to show how pumpkin seeds are planted and ate lunch. WHEW! It was a busy day and now I'm tired ;).

But alas, I'm off to work on my wooden nativity sets that I hope to have finished and sold way before Christmas. A mother's work is never done. LOL

Oh, and check out one of my latest listings in my etsy shop. It's called Winter Chill and is listed for only $12.00. There's also a matching pair of earrings!
