Happy Thanksgiving!!!

A very Happy, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  I'm so sorry for having neglected my blog - the season has just gotten so busy.  I'm trying to find the time to fit it all in...

I completed my first craft/art show last Saturday. I did okay for my first time ever trying anything like this.  I sold two picture frames, several slate magnets, and one custom order 12 x12 frame.  I would have liked the show to have been a little bigger with a little more traffic but I had a really good time and I met some great people.

More importantly, I finally did something that I had wanted to do for a long time but always found an excuse not to do.  I am the type of person that thinks about things for a very long time but is very slow to act, partly because of a HUGE fear of failure. So now I have jumped in with both feet and feel a bit more comfortable.  I am very fortunate on this Thanksgiving for my twin sister, Gretchen, who is my consummate cheerleader.  She was my assistant at the show and was a huge support - both physically (in helping me set up) and morally!  My cousin Colleen also stopped by and then was kind enough to take my sister and I out for dinner.  Of course too, I am thankful for my parents, who, even though I am 40 years old, came out to the show and brought me coffee:)  Gotta love family!  I hope everyone is having a Blessed Thanksgiving and if you are venturing out to shop remember to buy local!
