These photos are from about seven years ago. It was one of the last years that I did a Christmas home show (in someone else's home). I did this particular show for ten years. It ran for two weekends beginning the weekend after Thanksgiving. I prepared for this show for months....
I don't make many of these kinds of crafts anymore and I certainly don't create this amount of stuff.
BUT, I do have a couple shows coming up VERY soon...so I need to be creating something soon!
I also have a second yard sale to work on and a trip to Disney World to fit in.
Plus Katie, Mark and Charlotte will probably be living with us for a little while. They have a contract on their house and, Lord willing, the closing will take place in November. If they don't find and close on their next home by then, they'll be staying at my house.
So we're doing a little re-arranging of rooms - just in case!
Oh, did I mention that we're also "making over" the family room and putting new flooring and a toilet in one of the bathrooms.
There's always that 9-5 job too.
I'm also working on my Christmas shopping now because once the second craft show is over (the last weekend in November) I AM staying home and making cookies and decorating for Christmas and wrapping gifts and playing with my grandbabies.
I doubt I'll be able to crank out this many things in the midst of doing all the other things but I do need to get busy and whip up a couple boxes full of goodies. So I think it's time to shorten my blog posts and limit the amount of them for a little while. I have a few scheduled for this week but after that who knows....
Please don't stop visiting and I'll sure try visiting all of you as often as I can!
