What a busy weekend! We always have busy weekends, but this one was busier than usual.
I participated in my first craft show this weekend. My girlfriend didn’t have enough product for her table, so she invited me along. I brought in $190.00 for the day. Not too shabby! Of course my friend would not let me help her pay for the table, so we agreed that next year, I would pick up the cost. I also bought lunch for the two of us (note to self…pack a lunch for these things…the prices are RIDICULOUS!).
I also got orders for my Jack Skelington hat! I made one for Carla’s daughter Morgan, and people are really loving it. Here’s a picture she gave me permission to post on my blog:
So I made two of them and also more of my sock monkey coffee sleeve/cozies (I even made one in purple, but I forgot to take a picture, lol).
While I was at the craft show, Amy and Shane dropped my boys off to their dads, took Charlotte to dance, took Austan to a friend’s place for a sleepover and then came home and made a yummy dinner. If that wasn’t enough, they started painting Andrew and Aaron’s room!
On Sunday Amy and Shane finished the boy’s room, while I sat down with my hook and created. I usually feel bad that I don’t help with the painting, but now that I am making money with my crocheting, I don’t feel AS bad. We all bless our families in different ways.
I made a delicious taco soup for dinner, and then Amy and I went off to celebrate a friend’s birthday at Applebee’s. I love my girls so much, and we don’t get to spend as much time with them as we want. It was a lovely 2 hours chit chatting away and eating yummy food!
I was so glad to find out that Carla and the girls FINALLY got their hats! Here’s a pic of the ones I crocheted for her two youngest.
Now we’re battening down the hatches in prep for the remnants of Hurricane Sandy AKA: Frankenstorm. Sending out good thoughts to all our friends and readers in the Northeast. Please take care of yourselves!
