Brrr Its getting Colder
Well Here it is October has 12 days left then comes the frosty November air and then.......
As usual I have been lax with posting to my blog. Sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the days to do all I want to do. Like take this week, My son has a Dr appointment on Monday at 4:00pm and on Tuesday at 4:15pm. My work has finally consented to giving me a flat screen monitor so I need to exchange mine on Monday, which means that I have to make up the time out of office to travel there to get it and back. Don't know when I will make up the time as I also have a craft show on Saturday that I still need to prepare for.
Booked solid though December 14th with craft shows. I am loving every second of it and meet so many nice and interesting people. Yesterdays show was a little slow, but I made two new friends! That sometimes is better than selling anything!
Not to awful worried about the Christmas Holidays this year. There is no extra monies for gifts for anyone. I feel especially bad for my son who lives with me, as he has always looked forward to Christmas. This year we are about on the poverty level as I am sure everyone is, so we will just have a quiet day and not decorate the house or anything so as to not feel so bad.......
Counting on lots of overtime to supplement the monies I spent from my tax returns. Need to have enough to make the trip back to NY for my Sons wedding in May. so I am hoping my craft sales and Etsy sales go well so I don't have to dip into household monies to pay the business credit card. Going to have to do that this month as sales weren't great yesterday, and the monies I made from my last craft show last weekend were stolen before I had a chance to deposit them into the bank.
Oh on to happier notes I have been dabbling with wire wrapping, and will have 2 new necklaces to post in Etsy today. Gosh I don't know if I did it right, but I sure had fun trying to create something different! If you get a chance please check it out. Which also reminds me that I have some beads that I need to mail out...very very neglectful for me to not get them out as soon as I was paid for them. I wouldn't blame the person one bit if they blacklisted me on Etsy!
Well I need to make some items up for my next show and work on getting my excel program updated, here it is the end of the year almost, and I haven't put any information in yet. Well that's not quite true, I had the whole spreadsheet updated to 7/1/08 and forgot to save it, so I have to go back and reenter it all!
Till next time....happy blogging and good luck on your craft fairs.
