Black Friday 2009

Did you survive yesterday's Black Friday?? Well, ours started out slowly.  My mom and I spent the night at my sisters' home in to bed early to get a jump start on those sales.  But, the morning didn't go as planned.  My mother was very ill with a migraine and had to be taken home so that my dad could take her to the E.R.  My sister and I proceeded with our shopping and checked in periodically to see how what the Dr's concluded.

We scored what was left of the $2.00 video's at Walmart and the cute Twilight hoodies that were $ 7.00 each..We love the Twilight Saga!! Then it was time for Target...electronics were scarce and the sale movies were history. But, we did manage to pick up some items there~can't reveal in case my kiddo's are snooping around on mom's blog.  Best Buy was next on our tour...the sale movies (again) are gone!! Which explains why people camped out on the doorsteps the night before. Movies looked like a big hit yesterday!! T.V.s were still there, but the home theatre stuff shelves were empty. Which is what I was looking for...Santa came early for us!!! Kids will be surprised when they get home tomorrow night!! Next stop was Kirklands...that was a huge mistake!! I wanted everything for myself, but I did score some bargains for someone...

We seriously wanted to sneak off and see New Moon, but the teen girls are waiting on it's back to the house for lunch and pick up. Now, it's time for Sheplers...gotta get those Miss Me jeans!! Can you believe that they had less than 10 pairs~the biggest shopping day of the year and they have peanuts to chose from!!!! The only bargain I found was a $120.00 t-shirt...loaded with swarvoski crystals for $9.99.  What a deal!! Hello Cavenders's here we come.  They had tons of Miss Me jeans and their clearance shirts were marked down cheap, then 50% off of that!! Again, we loaded up!!

And we decided to be really brave and hit the mall~well didn't see anything there and the lines were too long. So, we left to hit some specialty boutiques and I found the cutest purse for my daughter and any Longhorn fan out there.  This was my fav find for the day!! How was your shopping experience?

Thanksgiving Week

It's sad to say that I am bored already!!! My kiddo's are gone with their fathers' house for the holiday week.  Yesterday, I purchased some new materials and spent hours designing new bracelets. They turned out so cute!!!

I also have been working on more dominoes...they are very popular.  As always, I dare to be different and it shows in my work.  The greatest compliment is that I am so talented, because I design ALL of my products.  I am the hand~made queen!!! My goal is to have another store someday, but I need help getting there.  Being a single mom is a job in itself.

This week will be dedicated to getting my items together for First Monday on Dec. 3rd-6th. Oh, there is so much to do!! I have so many knitted hats to decorate~it's not even funny!!! I could open a store with just hats and scarves!! Really....Craft stuff has taken over my house. Speaking of my house...time to plan an open house sale for December also.

Until I get my jewelry done...I have posted some pics of the hats I just completed.

Toodles for tonight!!

Womens' knitted hats

This grey hat is absolutely my fav!!! My grandmother makes them for me to sell~I decorate with crocheted flowers, satin ribbon, adorable buttons and of course bling!! Each one is unique and are available decorated or plain jane. Our inventory continues to grow (along with matching scarves).  Sizes available from newborn (no scarf for a newborn), toddlers-child, adult.

They are also a hit with students!!! We have made custom school colors and designs.  Watch for us at Canton First Monday Trade Days~just outside the Arbor buildings in a tan tent full of colorful bliss.
