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

My 2nd Post Today!

This is one of my favorite things that I have made in a few months. I just love the colors!
I think I need to add a few more ribbons to it.

This picture just makes me laugh!

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.
