Our First Family Christmas Crop

Our family has started a tradition, where all the girls get together, each November to have a Christmas craft exchange. Each person has to bring enough supplies for each member to make a craft to take home. This will be our 4th year. So much fun and fellowship, not to mention good food.

Craft Show Results

Last weekend was our very first craft show and we did AWESOME! Other than it being really hot we had a great time and sold a lot of stuff. I think everyone was pleasantly surprised how well we did. Our journals and clipboards were our best sellers.
Our next sale is in Lindale, Texas on October 11th. We then have 3 more shows planned for November.
I sure hope our next show is as profitable as this one was. We learned a few things about how to set up our display and I feel the next time will be a bit easier.
I will post some pictures of our display later tonight.

A MUST have!

I forgot to mention in my earlier post. My new cordless glue gun totally ROCKS that I got for Christmas last year ! It is so much easier than having to worry about plugging it in. Thanks Cathy! I highly recommend you buying one if you ever use a glue gun.

Waiting for IKE

The wind is picking up here now. We are expecting to get a few inches of rain tomorrow. It will be a good day for "crafting". I hope to get lots done tomorrow and Sunday. I made a few new things today and I will post them tonight. I can not believe it is only 1 more week until the first craft show!

Stay dry...

Baskets, baskets and more baskets

All the baskets are finally done (I think). We finished painting 7 baskets tonight for the show. Today I decorated 12 more candy bars with assorted paper and designed the template for the hot cocoa packs. Hopefully I can finish these tomorrow after work. The show is coming faster than I can get everything done I feel like... but, hopefully everything will fall into place. I will post some things tomorrow. Mother is making stuff daily also.
