What an amazing and fun weekend.

The work, planning and prayers that went into 
the I {Heart} Handmade Market 
craft show
paid huge dividends.

We were swamped.
The newspaper came.
They took photos and wrote an article.

The Give away table

Sheila's adorable tea cup pin cushion

See the pillar candle at the tippy top?  I made that on the day I left.  Nothing like last minute!

My Etsy friend, Loretta. 

More from Sheila!

We sold..
and sold...
and sold some more.

People were carrying bags filled with 
delicious granola, cupcakes, pie in jars, 
crocheted items, repurposed jewelry and books,
items for babies, items for grandmothers,
items for sisters and moms.

It was crazy.

Some even bought soy candles.

I got to meet some amazing women
in person that I've been getting to know 
through Etsy.

They are just as amazing in person 
as they are online.

I came home to a very full and fun day at 
church and then later with some of the 
church ladies at Starbucks.

I am so blessed.
It is official.

This morning I tried to pass by my new 
So new that I hadn't even started it yet.
The Holy Spirit prompted me to pick it up 
and it had the most perfect message in it for me.
Nothing warms the heart like a visit with 
Ya know?

Things are crazy busy with fundraisers.
Tommy candles continue to sell.
The CHALC class order and the Majorettes orders
are both due by Monday.
I mean that I have to have them made and 
bagged by Monday.
I'm starting a new test program with one of 
my salons today.
So....I must get that done and over to her.

And as if all of that wasn't blessing enough
I have regular Etsy orders to finish and ship.

Shaking my head at the Goodness of God 
in my life.

I may have a huge announcement 
to make
Not sure yet.
But if it happens 
I'll be sure to let you know.

No, I'm not pregnant. 
Just getting that one out of the way
right away.

Thanks for bearing with me.
You are simply the best.
