I'm feeling a little under the weather right now. I'm no doctor but I'd say I've got a cold and laryngitis!
Being sick is nature's way of telling me to slow down and take care of myself. I find that hard to do! I'm always taking care of others (both human and fur kids) and inevitably I find myself coming in last place. So when I came down with this bug I knew I'd have to put myself first. I took the day off and lounged in bed until I couldn't stand it any longer. Then I moved a few feet so I could sit in front of the sewing machine. Lol. I churned out a couple of holiday ornaments before my energy faded (I got very little sleep the past two nights).
So I'm not 100% sure yet but I may be participating in my first craft show next weekend! I'm still waiting to hear back from the woman in charge. I contacted her a few weeks ago and she finally called me back yesterday. We've been playing phone tag since then. Since time is of the essence, I'm operating under the assumption that I will be doing the show. Therefore, I've got to get my crafty bum in gear! I have 1 week to get enough merchandise together. That's a lot of crafting in a short amount of time! Factor in that I'm also participating in National Novel Writing Month (1,667 words per day) and holding down a 50+ hour a week job...I'm not even sure how I'm going to do it all! ;)
I have will-power on my side...and my ability to work extremely well under pressure (that's how I got through college...I still tell the story of how I wrote a 30 page term paper in 1 night)! So fingers crossed! I will keep you all updated! :)
On to the giveaway! I will be gifting one lucky winner with one of my holiday tree ornaments. :) Here's how to enter:

That's it! I'll randomly choose a winner on Sunday November 11th. Good luck!
Craft stores are evil. There, I said it. Every single time I walk into one with the intention of purchasing one item, I walk out $60 poorer. Today could have been worse. My total was $80 and I forgot my coupons! Thankfully a sweet lady in line behind me gave me one of her coupons. I saved nearly twenty bucks! Thanks stranger...you really made my day with your kindness! :)
I'm excited to work on some new creations!
What got you excited today? :)
