Regroup & Replenish

I have to post this right now. 

I have to tell the whole world how good of a job I did today. Did I just really compliment myself? Wow. I don't do that very often, if at all. 

The craft bazaar I told you about in my last post was today and it was a major success. Major for me. I didn't make a bajillion dollars but in my little world of sure felt like it. 

I've only done 2 craft shows (the one that I did in March doesn't count) but I have to say that even though I have made a profit - it's not all about the money (it sure helps) but I love seeing people's reaction to my creations. It really makes me happy that people enjoy what I make because it's something I love doing. It's so awesome to see someone smile about a set of coasters or a button bracelet (which were the biggest sellers today!!)

Needless to say, I can't wait for the next show in 3 weeks!! I know the next one is going to be HUGE - not just for me but for everyone involved. It's located at one of the biggest churches around the area. That stated, I am going to have to regroup  which means taking a breath, cleaning my craft room and get to makin' more stuff! I mean seriously MAKE. MORE. STUFF. 

In other exciting craft show news, I finally got to use my Square! It was a big day for me!

If you purchased something from me today, stopped by my table or even picked up a business card and you are reading this, I just want to say THANK YOU! Your support, interest and kindness mean so much to me. It helps to keep me inspired and driven to do what I love! 

I sincerely hope that you enjoy your creations that were purchased. I loved making them for you!

Oh yeah, in my last post I talked about chicken enchilada soup in the crock pot and gave a link to the recipe, you need to try it. The soup was awesome. The only thing I added to the recipe was taco seasoning. It gave it a little bit more flavor. Also, garnish it with some cheese, sour cream and crushed tortilla chips. Yum! Go try some. Have it for dinner tomorrow. 

...until next time...

The Three Cs

Hello, all!

I hope everyone had a great week and you are now enjoying your weekend! It's a cold one - a great day for cleaning, crafting & cooking. The three Cs - which is what I'll be doing as soon as The Today Show goes off. I love "relaxing" (I call it "relaxing" because mainly its just a method of procrastination from what I really have to do - cleaning.) on a Saturday morning with a cup of steaming coffee, my computer and The Today Show! 

I posted about Zoe, the new puppy, in my last update a few weeks ago. We love her to death and she's still a handful. She also makes a mess and pulls all of the dog toys out of the toy box and they are spread all over the living room floor. Basically, I have to clean more. I'm really not a fan of that. I also have to catch up on laundry and I'm not really a fan of that either. 

Next weekend is another craft show at a local high school. I'm really excited but I still have a TON of work to do. I have to name/label all of the button bracelets, coasters still have to be worked on, cards have to be made. I also may have just increased my workload this morning by emailing a local boutique about selling my creations. I'm so nervous! I'll keep you posted on the news!

Yesterday, I finally received my business cards from VistaPrint. They turned out so nice! See? The picture isn't so nice - thanks to being a cell phone picture but you get this gist of it. 

So, for the cooking portion of the three Cs. Tonight is Crock-Pot night. I don't feel like cooking anything so I'll let the Crock-Pot do it. That thing is like a magical pot. I don't have to do anything but put the ingredients in there and let it do it's thing. I'm thinking of Chicken Enchilada Soup for dinner tonight. The hubby said that he wanted some Tex-Mexiky. I found this recipe on Pinterest and I think this is "the one." Sounds yummy!

It's 9:00 am now and I guess I should get up and start cleaning and getting ingredients ready for the Crock-Pot. Procrastination time is over. 

Whatever you are doing this weekend, whether it be cooking, cleaning, crafting, shopping or nothing at all, enjoy it!

...until next time...
