Note to self...

DO NOT do two shows in one weekend ever (EVER!) again.

This past weekend my little business did two shows, Weihnachsmarkt & Gruene Market Days. It was fast, furious and a ton of fun! BUT, a little too much, ya know?

It started on Wednesday when we moved in

We put the finishing touches on Thursday morning and then when home and got pretty for the Gala from 6-9pm.

We opened to the public on Friday at 10 am and had a really great day, following by a very SLOW day for the 'Wine & Cheese' Shopping. Just too much going on in NB, I think. That ended at 9 pm and then we came home and packed the car to set up Gruene.

Yep. 7 am, setting up (in the cold) and Kevin had to give me lots of pep-talks along the way. He also picked up this little guy and it was wonderful!

Saturday was a Door bustin', clothes sellin', bow tryin', "OMG" sayin', kind of day.


And Sunday people came back for more.

I got to hang with some really cool girls, and I am thankful for their help and friendship. I couldn't have done it without you!

So, I put one foot in front of the other and will be at the Dominion's Womens' Club luncheon on Friday the 4th, followed by good ole GMD on the 5th & 6th. Come see us!

Too Busy To Blog

That's right, I said it.

My house is filled with all things sewing, all things girly and Christmas stuff galore.

Stacks of Christmas apron dresses four feet tall,

Cozy Coats in every corner,

Skirts and ruffles and ribbon are everywhere.

In 10 days all of this stuff will be here

If you think that is bad, you should see my neglected home. Poor family, it will be over soon, I promise!

So this is where the rubber meets the road, and I am

Too. Busy. To. Blog.

This was truly a fun Halloween... maybe the best one since I was little. All the kids came up with their own costumes (with no coaxing from me LOL!) and they each had a blast.

Parker was a zombie (here he is with Haley a forest fairy)

Rain was a vampire (princess, of coarse!)

and Maya was a cheerleader... GO BLUE! It was so cute because she would be the first one off the hayride and would still be the last on to the door... then she would say, "Twick or Tweat!!" So adorable :)

We decided to bring the 4 wheeler from the ranch and hook-up a trailer to create hay ride for some neighborhood kids. I had no idea what a hit it would be! We cruised the neighborhood in style and the best part was that the trick or treaters were not worn-out and whiny when got home for the...

Traditional Candy Swap! Each kiddo comes back to the house, dumps out their candy and then begins to beg, barter and steal for their favorites. Have you ever seen so much candy? (forgive the picture I took it with my phone) I think this year was the tops!
