Happy Saturday All!

Whew!  What a whirlwind week it was!
For those who don't follow me on Facebook, I wanted to share a couple
photos from this past week's Country Club Show.

I've brought myself down to only doing 3 shows a year now.
This is my hobby and it was getting too close to being a business ... and being retired, I didn't want another business so I've cut myself back to a Spring & Fall private show at the local Country Club and a public craft show at the local High School in November.  That keeps me plenty busy I assure you!  LOL

Anyways, since I share with you some of the 'treats / projects' I have created for these shows, I thought you might like to see my 'set up'.  I always have requests for cards of course, but also the tea cups & tissue box covers that I make so those are a 'staple' ... but each show I try to create a few different little gift type things so here's this years offerings.

The Hershey Chocolate Boxes and the Notecard/Chocolate box sets SOLD OUT!!
I made both everyday patterns and Christmas patterns and both were a bit hit I'm happy to say!

Last show I sold out of the tea cups so I made twice as many this time around and only sold half of them!  You just never know what the ladies will be looking for!!

The Tea Bag Booklets (a booklet w/ one tea bag & a msg + envelope) were actually left over from the Spring show (basically the same group of ladies) and all but a couple sold!  Like I said . . . you just never know!  LOL

Well that's my share for today!
Time to get busy creating for the November 4th show!
You know how fast time can fly by!  LOL

Thanks for stopping by today and here's wishing you a FABULOUS weekend!!
As always . . .

Wow is right! This looks fabulous.

I'd like some tutorials on some of this schtuff! It's sooooo cute. Pssst........Hammy, come closer and whisper in Woolfie's ear. Woolfie's my bear. He's smart like you Hammy. He knows he's not real but he doesn't care how many times people tell him he's not. [Bunny]

Darlene, What a gorgeous set up you have! I'm so glad you are so popular with your items. It's been fun to see the projects as you do them, then finally see your whole set up. Thank you for sharing that with us!
Blessings, Sue

I honestly don't know how you do it. When I look at that table full of wonderful projects, I am blown away. Do you have a clone that is helping you? Seriously, you are a wonderful team leader and friend. I was blessed to have you ask me to join your groups at DD and DRU

when I was into tole painting a few years back, a friend and I did shows and it was amazing how things would change from show to show, good to hear you had some big sales that you sold out of, good luck in catching up for you next show!
