Where I prefer not to be called a crafter - I have a line that is considered "crafty". Sales were pretty good considering that the people who pull it together, forgot to advertise (Methinks the event snuck up on them) within the building till the day before.
I am hopeful that next month in Vancouver, WA for the same Organization will be better -- Somehow I was talked into participating, and I have never had the Vancouver experience, so it will be what I make it.
I ran into several friends, and fellow vendors who I adore over the two days. I just love connecting with all of them. I even made new friends! How wonderful is that? ... one can never have enough friends in the area that you are interested to associate with.
All is Good
Saturday, my daughter and I went to Live Laugh Love, where she took a glass blowing class. We have done this before, several times as a matter a fact. It is always an exciting adventure, and warm, as you are surrounded by the furnaces that keep the glass molten. Today, she chose to make a sun catcher out of a deep turquoise blue with a lighter opal turquoise swirled within. There was another class in the workroom, that were making flowers -- hmmm... I think I wanna make a flower too! Next time. I really enjoy this adventure, and love it when we are able to purchase "Groupon's" to make stuff. Last year I made ornaments to give as presents. A little piece of my heart :)
I managed to put up 24 pints of pears, and begun the process for another 12 half pints of apple butter. I tried something new with the apple butter receipe, I made it in a crockpot! -- and had fun doing it. My partner, would come behind me and swoop up the peelings and take them to compost without me seeing -- what a sweetie! Then! ... He fixed us dinner Sunday night.
We are slowly getting the basement straightened around so I don't feel it is that much of a fire hazard -- that is a good feeling.
Today - this day is Monday - and the beginning of another week, in the life, of ME.
