Happy Sunday to you all!
First please let me set some minds at ease with an update on my husband, Mark's Kidney Cancer Testing which has been going on over the past couple of months! I'm THRILLED to say that we FINALLY got the good news last Thursday and all biopsies came back NEGATIVE!! PRAISE THE LORD!!! I still don't understand why they make you wait SO LONG for test results sometimes ... sure keeps you on pins and needles!! But when we didn't hear anything within the first week, we went on the thought "NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS" ... and it was!!!
ALSO ... please note an update at the top of my blog on Maria! Thanks so all of you who have taken the time out of your busy schedules to send cards to either myself or my daughter for Maria. These have been sent along to her and have certainly helped in keeping her spirits up!!
PLEASE, if you could find it in your heart and can take a few moments out of your busy schedule ... we would love to continue showering Maria with cards!! Having a broken back AND cancer, needless to say, she's unable to do much for herself. Thankfully, her family, friends & neighbors have all been pitching in on the meals & housework. Her husband has even rearranged the sunporch so that Maria can gaze out upon her gardens and watch the birds while having to spend so much time in bed! Thanks in advance for anything you can do to help this beautiful lady in this trying time!
********* CRAFT SHOW NEWS *************
WOW what a busy couple of week's I've had in preparation for yesterday's craft show. It was GREAT and WOW ... SO MANY PEOPLE came out despite the cold, snow spitting weather! There are probably somewhere around 200 vendors at this show and this is my 2nd year participating! We didn't do GREAT but we covered our expenses & made a little extra cash too ... actually pretty good I thought!! And, we picked up some wonderful suggestions from customers that we'll certainly put into place for next years show!
(This is Terri)My friend Terri Snode (Terri's Cards 'N More) shared in the craft show fun with me this year. We tried to NOT do the same projects which gave us more to share with people and helped us see what sold the best.
(This is ME ...)As you can see in the photo, I use "media" boxes to display my individual cards (works very well). Each card is in a clear sleeve with an envelope and if there is a sentiment in the card, it is also identified on the back of the sleeve.
Here are some of the items we offered yesterday:
- Individual cards
- Boxed sets of Note cards, All Occasion Cards, Christmas Cards
- Post-It Note Holders
- Altered Note Pad Booklets
- Money/Check Holders (Holiday or Birthday)
- Large Gift Card Holders (A-2 card size)
- Small Gift Card Holders (Credit Card size)
- Decorative Boxes ... empty or filled with holiday ornaments
- Taking orders for Monogrammed Note Cards
Those in RED are what sold the best! I was amazed that we did NOT sell ONE boxed set of holiday cards and Terri had some BEAUTIFUL sets made up!! You just never know what people are looking for!!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to have something NEW to share with you tomorrow! I'm doing another SMALLER craft show next weekend but think I have enough product for that show! Hopefully I can play a few FUN CHALLENGES this week and share those creations with you!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
