This is the last weekend for holiday open houses and I'm so happy to say that everyone has been doing well so far . I believe us crafter gals are all ready for a well deserved spa treatment and a glass or two of wine !
I will be ending my season at the annual "Valley Merry Christmas " @ Sandy Valley High School , Nov. 28th & 29th.
I'm already chomping at the bit to start planning my merchandise line for next year,mainly because I feel that I could be better prepared. It was a little, no-I take that back, it was quite hectic this year trying to keep up with all of my shows while keeping the shops filled with the stuff you folks are really wanting .
It's hard to be a one woman army, but I do it year after year because this is my passion and I could never do anything else for an income that is so fulfilling .
I have dug out all of my cherished issues of Country Living, dating back from the late 70's through the early 1980's. Those magazines have inspired me more times than I can count to create some of the wonderful things that I've made over the years,and now I believe that I need a breath of fresh air to create some more cool things for next year ...not to mention some great primitive Christmas ideas !
I really wished that Country Living would stop foolin' around and get back to their roots, they've completely lost what they were once known for these last few years.
Now they are more like Martha Stewart Living and I'm totally not into that ,how depressing :0(
I will let you all know that I plan to bring the paint cans back next year, I'm growing weary of all the glassware...but don't worry, I will still carry the 8, 12 and 16 oz jars I'm just trying to reorganize a bit.
Lots of ideas are running through my mind ,but I can't do it all now so stay tuned..........
