One Stop Holiday Shopping – Saratoga Springs (Sunday 11/30)

snow

Hi Friends!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! I must admit, I am still tired from cooking, cleaning, playing in the snow with the kids, and having the family over yesterday. But I love the good food, family togetherness and memories we make. My poor niece couldn’t eat anything more than some Bob Evans mac and cheese and applesauce, 8 days out from her tonsils/adenoids surgery and she is still hurting, poor baby. And my sister’s first outing since her surgery 9 days ago, hard to get comfortable… BUT we gave thanks and praise for their successful surgeries and now pray for their continued healing.

I wanted to remind you that I am going to be at a HUGE Craft/Vendor Fair this Sunday November 30th at the Holiday Inn in Saratoga Springs… we are open 11 am to 2 pm and there are goodie bags for the first 50 people through the doors. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to make anything for the goodie bags, but I have coupons I will be giving out to the first 50 people who visit me at my booth and of course a door prize for signing up for my newsletters/email list. Want to know who else will be there with me on Sunday? Well here is the line up of vendors/crafters- you really can get something for everyone on your list right here on Sunday!

owl thanksgiving

 

Hi there friends! Just a very quick post today to let you all know how very thankful I am for YOU! I appreciate your support, kindness, and friendship. On this Thanksgiving I am so thankful to be blessed with my amazing family, terrific friends, awesome customers and so many wonderful stampers and crafters I have met through the year. I have my niece and nephew here to help out my sister as she continues to recover from her surgery…. today will mark her first day leaving her home since she came home last Thursday and we have a half foot of snow…. my niece is not eating solid foods yet, she is finally beginning to feel better. We will be saying prayers of thanksgiving for them and their healing.

Every year Stampin’ Up! has a big sale over the week of Thanksgiving. There are TONS of products on sale. The sale starts Monday, but since I have the information on what’s on sale, I thought I would pass it along so that you can contemplate your choices over the weekend. Sounds so fun!!  Plus, there will be limited-time doorbusters on the first and last days of Online Extravaganza. You don’t want to miss them!

Good News!

Hi Friends!

My sister’s surgery went well yesterday, of course she’s dealing with pain, but what a trooper she is. Hope she can get discharged tomorrow and come home and rest, nothing like your own environment for the long recovery ahead. Thanks for your kind words, thoughts and prayers. I cancelled all my activities this week to help with my niece and nephew. They are doing really well with all of the changes.

In other good news my oldest niece’s surgery went well today. Poor kid tonsils and adenoids removed, not easy for an 18 year old. Lots of slushies and pain pills for the next few days. I’m thinking our Thanksgiving we’ll have lots of soft foods next week.

It was a pleasant surprise to have my new blog cover arrive! I had custom ordered some work back in April, (my birthday present to myself was a blog “facelift”) and that’s how talented and in demand Veronica is, she had oodles of customers ahead of me. In the next few days I’m going to add the buttons and watermarks and clean up the blog a little bit. What do you think of my little owl, sitting in the palm of hand?? How cute??

A few people asked me what we’ll be making on the 24th at my last Stamp-a-Stack… I’m not 100% sure yet, it will be awesome and super don’t worry! If you have a stamp set you’d like to see me use for this class, let me know. I have 2 spots left, would like to know by Friday 11/21. thanks!

Thank you for visiting today, and hope to show you some cards soon.

Many Thanks!!

trinity booth

 

I counted over 25 of my wonderful customers, friends and family who came out to see me this weekend. The Craft Fair at Trinity Presbyterian was a great hit! I was next to Sam’s Jam’s and enjoyed her yummy treats, there were some unique hand made gifts and everyone had a great time. Thank you for those who came out!

 

I had my new handy cart with a bin full of retired stamps. I had been going through my retired stamps last week looking for a “bucket” stamp for a friend, and couldn’t find it, and it gave me the idea to sell these retired items at my craft fairs.

My best sellers were: Penguin, Rudolf and Santa treat boxes, Chap Stick holders, Santa’s Magic Key, cardinal candles, dry erase boards, and retired stamps.

Yesterday I was Rexford Firehouse again, wowza, it was huge- so many talented people.

My best sellers were: Rudolf, Santa and Penguin treat boxes (sold out by 1:30 pm), mini purses (full of Hershey’s kisses), Santa’s Magic Key, my handmade cards were a hit (I whipped up 24 cards on Saturday night so I was sure to have Thanksgiving and Christmas cards), and my mini coffee cups. (I made these up Saturday night too).
