Hurricane Ike

First of all, my thoughts and prayers go out to all who were affected by Hurricane Ike. I started to get pretty emotional when I saw the pictures of the destruction in my home state, Texas.

Brittany & I spent the weekend home alone. It rained so much yesterday, we couldn't really get out an do anything fun. I almost booked an outside show for Saturday, and a little voice told me not to sign up~always listen to your inner voice!! So, I went shopping at Michaels to get the supplies needed to complete my necklaces for next weekends' show. I made 10 necklaces~maybe it should rain more often~so I can get some work done.

We did get drenched, we ventured out to the library to get some movies to watch to keep us occupied. A few friends wanted me to go out~but when it rains, this baby stays inside. I am not afraid to get wet or anything, just don't like to drive in the rain.

Designer Matchbooks

Well, I was bored and you know me, I find something creative to make & sell. So, while playing around with my scrapbook stuff~I thought of decorating matchbooks to go with the candles.

Each one is different & unique (no 2 alike) to reflect our "attitudes"....makes for a great addition to give the gal who has, she has designer matches!!!

Hurry~they sell quickly~and new or custom designs welcomed!!

Cute Cards

Last year I attended many shows and saw the craze for custom cards. So, you know me~I had to try it out for myself!! All the years worth of scrapbook supplies just sitting in their storage containers and no time to finish scrapbooks for 4 kids! Who has the time anymore?
Anyhoo...I soon learned that this is yet another addiction!! Like I need another project! My house looks like a craft/hobby shop. I just wished that I had an entire room just to design~instead of my kitchen table...maybe someday my prince charming will arrive and buy me a bigger house so I can fulfill my dream!!!
Enjoy a few of my custom cards~no 2 are alike! All are blank inside for you to customize for that special someone and occasion.

Monthly Open House

Every month...I hold an open house selling my latest creations. August was a bit slower than last year. Probably due to high fuel costs and being close to back to school, since it fell on tax free weekend.

The popular items for the month were Lavender bath salts, the funky frames and the girly items. Everybody loved my new unique creations~sold before I could even take some pictures. Oh well, just means I have to make more....

This months' sale will be held on September 26 & 27 (10--5). A week later than planned due to the show schedule.

9th Annual Fall Craft Fair schedules for Friday, Sept. 19 (11-7); Saturday, Sept. 20 (9-5) at Arapaho Road Baptist Church~2256 Arapaho Road Garland TX 75044

Hope to see you there!!
