It's almost countdown time

For Card Swap this month we created altered items. I got this great idea from a friend and had tons of fun creating these countdown block sets. I made one reversible base and 2 sets of blocks for each person. One set is a Christmas countdown and the other is a Countdown to Card Swap. The Christmas set alone would make a great gift for friends, familly, teachers etc. for the holidays. I will be selling the kit on my website . The kit includes the blocks and the vinyl lettering and numbers. all you need is paper and modge podge. Check out all the fun designs I came up with....

Harvest Festival Week...So Sad

So last year we decided that due to the economy and our children we would not do the Big harvest Festival shows for my business this year. Now Sean was thrilled because he usually gets to stand in the booth and make signs for 3 days straight! ( and yes I do love him for doing that) I thought I would be so excited no big rush to gets so many signs done time to enjoy halloween and Christmas with the kids(don't get me wrong I do plan on doing those) but as Harvest Festival comes this weekend I find myself sad. Sad that I won't be setting up on Thursday sad I won't get meet all the great shoppers, sad I don't get to know the people at the booths around me who become like family for the weekend, sad I don't get to spend all that time with my husband because even though we are working very hard we are doing it together. I will miss picking up the kids from school on Thur and bringing them to the fair grounds to have dinner and finish setting up, I will really miss the big fluffy bed at the hotel we always stay at in Pamona!

Okay had to get that off my chest, thanks for listening.

P.S. We are still taking orders on the website and at open houses so don't fear we are still in business :)

Here is my favorite new design I think would have sold like crazy at Harvest Festival this year.
