Sue and I had a great day yesterday. We were at the Seymour Heart and Home Craft Fair all day. We did well in sales and got lots of compliments on our products. It is very heartening to hear people say we had cool stuff and then actually buy it! We have 3 more fairs scheduled in the next 4 weeks so I will be very busy stocking up, especially since I sold 7 purses yesterday. I think that is a record for me. Trying to catch up today on house stuff-I have seriously neglected the home front lately. Tonight we are taking Meta and her friends to Compounce to go to the Haunted Trail, it will be good to take a night off from crafting.
Last night after the fair we went up to Michael, my nephew,and Lexi's new house. Had a great time, drank some wine, ate excellent food and desserts and got to hang out with the family. So I am off line for now, too nice a day to be inside.

Well we finally broke down and bought a dishwasher. My friend had given us an old one she had but once we hooked it up and tried it we found it actually didn't work. So off to Sears we went and picked up a nice Frigidaire. Tried it out tonight, I am very impressed how nice and clean the dishes were. OK now I can move on to crafts. I did get a chance to put together 3 more felted purses, they came out so cute, I want to keep one of them for me but I know it's too small for all my junk I seem to need to carry around. I am going to start working on some more boxes also, I have a few ideas for winter/Christmas I want to try out. I'll post some pictures when I get one done. Sometimes I have so much in my head I want to do it all at once and then if I don't write it down or actually go and do it-it's gone! I'll be at the Heart and Home craft show in a couple weeks, hopefully I'll have some new items and can see how they go over.

Well I know I haven't written in a while but I have been busy. Lots of stuff to do around the house and in the craft room. I have been diligently posting my purses and Halloween crafts on line all this past 2 weeks. It takes a while to do all that, between taking the pictures, editing them and then typing in descriptions and all that! I have made a few on line sales and I have been featured on a web site called Wickedly Chic, that excites me. Any help in getting my stuff showcased I'll take. Sue and I have 4 more craft fairs scheduled between now and Thanksgiving also so I need to make sure I have stuff to sell at them. I have been working on word banners and my decorated boxes. I have quite a few purses made up and plenty of sweaters to work from, it's just a matter of getting to it. Yesterday I spent most of the day helping Tom put away all the water garden stuff. I had to sink the pots down to the bottom, always a lovely job and clean all the hoses and pumps to put them away until next year., so not too much got done in the craft room. I have an order to fill from one of my work friends , I did spend some time on that. I need to get that to her this week. Below are some pictures of things I have been working on. Let me know what you think. The first is a word banner that spells "harvest". Next one is the word"dream"
