I've found another fun thing to make-and I've made a few! These little scrapbooks are made in the style of matchbooks. They flip open to reveal the inside pages. They are ready for you to add your pictures or whatever you want.

I'm having a blast creating them. Since they are so small, I can use my scraps to put them together.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be busily creating and building up my inventory for the holiday season as well as craft fairs I'll be attending.

This Friday and Saturday, I'll be at the Robert G Sanderson Center for the Deaf's annual bazaar. I've been a vendor there for four years now and have enjoyed it. I hope that it will be well attended and I will sell a whole bunch of stuff!

I'll be having a home show next week. Most likely on Thursday. (I've been postponing it wanting to wait until my basement is finished. Hopefully it will be ready by then.) If you're interested in coming, let me know and I will get you the details offline.

Missing the J

Last night, Jordan went to stay with his Aunt Ashlie, Uncle Andy and Cousin Pyper. He'll be there until tomorrow when I go up to Logan to get him. Unless I break down and drive up sooner. I miss him. But I am getting a lot done in his absence. It's amazing how much you can really get done when you have uninterrupted time.

But while I am missing him, let's enjoy this great photo I took last week. He is lining up paper cups in the kitchen. I think this is amusing, because I am told that I used to do this with canned food when I was a wee one. But I had to take it a step further and pull all the labels off the food. My mom tells me that they had many meals with surprise side dishes. Sometimes it was green beans, sometimes it was soup.

Home Sweet Home

OK, we've been here in the new house since the end of June. And I'm now finally getting around to post a picture. I really wanted to do it before snow hit, so I'm getting down to crunch time.
Anyway- here it is. Home Sweet Home. We love it. Our basement will be finished in few weeks, and then we'll really love it! For the past few days the rest of the house has been covered in a thin layer of dust while the walls were being sanded and whatever else they do. Anyone that knows my OCD tendencies can understand what a nightmare this has been for me. But it will all be worth it soon.

Party Time!!!

For this week, October 8-12, I'll be having an online party. No need to RSVP, just visit my shop when you have a chance. For every purchase you make during the week, your name will be entered into a drawing. On Friday evening, I'll draw a name of our "Mystery Hostess." The lucky winner will be announced on my blog and will recieve a ten dollar gift certificate to my shop.

I'll be making updates here on my blog, so be sure to check back. I may even include people that post interesting comments in the drawing. I look forward to hearing from you all!

Garbage Day!

I love garbage day. It's a day when I can feel "reborn" sort of. Out with the old garbage...begin with a clean slate. Yes, I know I am beyond strange. But you love me anyway, right? Right?!

Can you imagine my delight when Jordan began to display the same love of garbage day? I can't say that he loves it for the same reasons, since he runs to the window and watches intently as the truck comes noisily down the street. He giggles as it picks up each can and tips it upside down. But I smile inwardly just knowing we share in this happy day...even if for different reasons.
