YAY - I'm in my first ever Craft Shop!

So, let me preface this story by saying that there use to be this grill up the road from us....all the locals went there for some good "grill" food! Well, they had to close because they couldn't get enough hired help.

Last night, we're eating dinner and my SIL calls to tell me that the new grill opened up and they also have crafts. What? Food and Crafts? Can it be? So, I got myself all professional looking and grabbed a cross-section of my "stuff" and off I went to check this place out.

The place is great...you can go sit and eat, take out - stop by just for an ice cream cone.....AND SHOP! I think it is such a great concept. Plus, it's on the main road to the state park near us which attracts lots of tourists! Plus (again) all the locals are already use to going there for food so they'll definitely be coming in!

If I can take a moment to brag...just one little brag.....they loved my stuff! Loved the knits, cards, jewelry and glass...everything!

Tomorrow I set up my booth (3x6). I should be getting all my stuff together...but I'm not. I'm just so excited that I can't even focus on one thing at a time. My mind is all over the place.

Wish me luck my friends!

Today's great find!

So, call me crazy...but I have officially started Christmas shopping....CRAZY! I know!

I just bought this necklace for my 12 yr old niece..I think she will love it (her name is Kerri though)! It is all sterling silver AND, the best part is that it was on Sale. Please stop by Polly's shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=97151 AKA Polly's Handmade Treasure's!

Life and Death

My father-in-law has lost his battle and passed away on June 3rd...exactly 3 months to the date since he entered the hospital. He was admitted on 3/3 for a heartattack. A triple bypass surgery was done on the 9th. He never left the ICU. He battled and fought and hung on as long as he possibly could. It was simply terrible.

This has been a whirlwind of a week and needless-to-say I have not done anything with Etsy - today has been my first day back. I look forward to featuring a new Etsy artist tomorrow!
