Banner Banner and More Banners!

I have found a new favorite thing to make. Banners! They are so much fun to design and make. Over the weekend I made some It's a Boy, It's a Girl and Happy Birthday ones. I will post some pictures later today of them.

I hope to sell them in our upcoming craft shows and also plan to to put some on ETSY.  This is also a great way to use spare paper up. I really got some good use out of my cricut while making these banners.

I found that by leaving my cricut out in the open I use it alot more!

Hugs, Mary

I found this on my computer at work and everytime I see this pictures of Jordan is cracks me up! It is 3 years old but still rings a smile to my face everytime I see it.

ETSY Store

I forgot that I have never posted the actual store's site.

It is

It has all kinds of papercrafting items.

So far we have had 18 sales which is pretty good I understand for a new store. We have only been open since the end of May.

It took a little work getting it set up but it has been fun. I get so excited when I get a message from Pay Pal saying that I have a payment waiting.


Summer is Winding Down

Well it seems that since summer is ALMOST over I have been thinking about fall and how busy it is about to be....

School starts in 2 1/2 weeks
Last vacation of the summer is next week-Port Aransas here we come!!!!
Fall craft shows starting
Getting ready for the holidays
Keeping the ETSY store stocked

I am already getting tired.

But I love it at the same time!

Oh I can not forget keeping up with my "Farm" on Farmtown. That seems to be a new obsession of mine. At least my husband thinks so. :)

I sent the 1st 2 applications in this week for the Gladewater and Bloomburg craft shows. I hope they are successful even more than last years were.

Cass County SummerFest

Today was our second craft fair of this year. About 40 vendors, including food vendors. We did OK, despite the heat. Was 97* today. Not that many people milling around in the middle of the day. We folded out tent about 2:30 and was out of there. We are looking forward to the fall fairs. Weather should be much nicer. We also need to add to our inventory for the Fall and Christmas season.

Schools out for Summer!

Jordan got out of school yesterday and today we have done NOTHING !

I did clean up my scrapbooking room and created a few new items. I went to the American Scrapbook Convention and picked up a few new goodies.

I will post some pics of new creations.

We have a craft show coming up next weekend. It is the Cass County Sumerfest in Atlanta.

I hope we sale lots of items to make room for new items for the Fall shows.

I have uploaded lots of new things on ETSY also. Please check it out! I would love to hear some comments.

Summer is here!

I love summer! I am so glad it is finally here. Of course it just has to be a rainy weekend but at least I get a few days off work....

Jordan has only 2 weeks of school left so we are celebrating that. I plan on adding some new stuff to ETSY this weekend so I guess it is okay that it is going to rain ALL weekend. So far I have had 3 sales That is pretty good I guess since some people go months before getting their first sale. I hope that is a good sign.

Better go craft now. Happy Memorial Day to everyone and Happy Summer!

Finally...after debating for a long time

We did it! We opened up a shop on Etsy. Go check it out.
The address is

I have only listed 2 items so far. It is taking me a while to figure it all out. I have a lot to list on it so it will take me a few days probably.
It is a lot of work let me tell you. I am guessing it will be easier every time.

Please check it out and let me know what you think.
Have a great weekend.
