Bella Kids Sale..

Thought you would like to see how my table looked.. the sale opens up in a half hour.. so excited.. hope I get some orders.. and sales.. one thing nice.. I dont have to sit there for the 4 days.  It is totally automatic.  Everything has a label and will be scanned as it is sold.  That part is wonderful, as I can use that time for other stuff.

Currently I am working on Thanksgiving Hanging Towels to list on Etsy and also for the next craft show the beginning of November.  I will have information on this next week.   First I have to get thru this sale.. I will give you an update tomorrow..

Winner of the contest.. and Update

The winner of the contest is Faithanne.. of Faithanne's Gifts and More.  As soon as I get her address I will send it..

I need another way to do the contests.. as alot of people were having problems.. will have to think on that.. anyone got any ideas? You can always drop me a line at if you got any.. smile..

Well.. went to the Hearing clinic yesterday, and they told me my hearing has gotten worse and asked me how I felt about getting a cochlear implant.. which blew my mind.. caught me totally unexpected.. needless to say I was a bit upset.  My BF and I talked it over and he suggested both a second opinion and checking out the support groups before making a decision.. still it did and does upset me..
Still working on my newest slippers - girls froggie in variegated purples and pinks.. should finish those tonight.. then think I will start a girls duckie ones in the same yarn.. I got to try to get pics tomorrow.. been running so much that when I got home today.. I ate dinner and then went to sleep.. for the next week or so.. I wont be here as much.. will probably give everyone an update on Friday.. smile.. see you then..

Very Good Tuesday!

Well... my day started off by discovering one of the items I put on Ebay is having a bidding war going on.. smile... no complaint there.. lol.. No idea that a Salem Witch Trial Tshirt would be that exciting.. LOL!!

Then, I went to the Dr and actually got them to list to me.. yay.. gonna run some tests on me to see if there is a reason I constantly feel in pain and got muscle cramps. (blood work tomorrow.. ugh!!)

Then after I got home... unexpectantly.. my grandboys came for a visit.. and that delighted me.. lol... nice visit.. then I got to go out for dinner with my friend, Diane.. we went to AC Moore, The Christmas Tree Store (more towels), and then to the Olive Garden for dinner.

Got home and watched my show (Revolution).. and crocheted slippers (almost have two more pairs done again).. then got online to pack my two orders from Ebay and discovered I sold 6 towels.. smile.. now that really made my day.. orders are packed and ready to go.. but it is late now. so the pics I was gonna  put up are gonna have to wait until tomorrow.. smile.. Hope you had a good evening. I sure did.

Just a quick visit..

It was a really busy and upsetting day for me.. I woke up to a text that told me my friend had to put her 14 year old dog to sleep because he had a stroke. (I was just there the day before).  so I guess this post will be for Dillie.. a really nice old lab.
