I am so excited to be part of these Currently linky parties!  Slowly, but surely, I'm gaining new followers and I'm pumped!

Today was the culmination of months of work - I was part of an annual craft show.  My third year.  However, there has been a trend.  The first year i SCORED in sales.  Last year was a bit less and this year I didn't even break $100.  There were numerous reasons why the turnout wasn't great.  I have another on December 1st.  In the meantime I need to get my scarves on Etsy - or this new Auction situation on facebook!?  Anywho, I love making what I do and it helps me pay for Christmas gifts.  Cross your fingers that things pick up! 

This past week was nutso.   It was our first week back from Fall Break, and you throw Halloween in the middle?  Forget about it.  I was exhausted, the kids were a hot mess - sugar comas - and we were all glad to see Friday afternoon come.  I took Halloween pictures but left the camera at work.  I'll get to it eventually. 

Back to work and our normal routine Monday - we start learning about Andy Warhol! 


  1. Currently linkies are the best to get new followers! :) I completely agree about this week being crazy! Halloween should NEVER be allowed to be on a Wednesday! Awful idea! :) haha

    1. Thanks! Designing it was my biggest challenge actually. I knew it had to be striking so I took a lot of time to make it look right.

      I'll check yours out tonight!

  3. Your blog is looking great, I love the colours. I found it through Farley's linky party.
    My kids were also nutso this week, Halloween on a Wednesday, I think that this is always a recipe for disaster. Anyways, glad to be back to regular routines on Monday as well!
    Happy November!
