Sliver Linings...

I got to spend the day with my sisters at a local farm (where one of them works), while we tried to sell our stuff at their annual craft fair. Steph's homemade jams and cookies and kiddie capes sold like hotcakes! I sold one journal and one ornament. But, as I said, I got to spend the day with the girls. Plus, I got 2 free hot cocoas and a piece of pizza. And a discounted Jamaican plate full of rice, cabbage, and jerk chicken to take home!! Yummy.
I think my side of the table turned out cute, and Steph's was nice and tidy, and I think it flowed okay, considering the strange combo of my stuff with hers. Someone dripped her homemade strawberry jam onto one of my bags; but, since it was decorated with a transfer of my art, it wiped right off with a damp cloth!
And I made this cute flower arrangement for our table, too. I thought it turned out really nice.

I also now have lots of new bowls to list for holiday shoppers. Today I am hoping to get some of the photo editing and description writing done so that I can just keep on listing for the next few days. Then, stay tuned, as I am probably going to offer free shipping at some point. Try to get those procrastinators to think ahead for once, right? It would never work for me, but maybe there are some out there who are a little more sensible than I!!

Oh, and I was pretty proud of the quick embroidery job I did on my bleach stained sweater the night before the fair. You can't even tell how careless I am with that nasty stuff (I use bleach rarely, and can't even figure out how I got it on this particular sweater!!).

  1. I'm glad to have been able to spend a whole day with you and show you the farm! (Even if I did end up part of Scruffy's dinner...)
