Countdown to the shopping frenzy

Hi Friends. I know I haven't been posting as much lately, but things were hectic getting ready for this craft fair this past weekend. Learned a lot. Set-up was a breeze. Anxiety was kept at bay. However, the sales did not happen, for whatever reason. I sold 6 items, and I haven't had any emails or phone calls regarding the business cards I handed out. Oh well. At least I sold 6 items, right? I made back my booth fee.

My birthday was yesterday and I was showered with gifts from my best friends and my family. Got a Knook, which just means more crafting is in my future. :evil

On Friday, I did post new listings on my Etsy page and my web page. What do you think? I have scrubbies and a new baby blanket and some wash cloths. My current project is a baby boy blanket, so I will have 3 varieties of my block baby blanket.

My apartment is in a sad state. I need to do a major clean. Luckily, nothing is going on Friday or Saturday. So I will be home cleaning and getting things ready for the holiday season. Leftse making on Sunday. \o/

I am also back on the diet and exercise plan. I have been slacking. Not good! I have only lost 15 pounds. Need to get going!

So, I'm going to tease you all a little bit. Who loves Black Friday sales? Small Business Saturday? Cyber Monday? Well, I will be having a sale the entire weekend after Thanksgiving. No coupon codes to remember, no gimmicks. Just a straight sale.

I've also lowered my shipping fees on a lot of my things. I will still ship with a tracking number, but it will be shipped First Class, not Priority, unless you request it.

I've reached over 200 fans on my Facebook page. So excited!

Anyway, I think that is everything. Hoping for sales. Going to see if I can't hop on some more blog hops.



  1. I could have written this post about me, right down to the back on the diet and have been slacking!

    Good luck at your sale (yes, another parallel), and to spending the weekend on the house, yes me too.

    Sounds like you've been busy but that's always a good thing.

    1. That is amazing. Great minds think alike!
