Happy Thanksgiving to all...

I am all about quick notes these days. Sorry I do not have anything to post picture-wise this week, but I am just wishing you all a happy Thanksgiving, and I will hope to have something to post. I am just going to go out with a bang, and hopefully, I will have something in the beginning of the new year, 2010. I cannot believe that we have just one more month in the 2009, and in the end of the 20th century. I was born in the mid-60's, dealt with the '70s, 80's, and 90's, and here I am ending the year 2000's with you (or double 00's whatever you call it). I wish I could say that I have seen it all, but I have not, compared to the person I introduced you to three entries back. I have only seen a fraction of what she has seen. I am only in my 40's, a baby, compared to her, and that is my thanksgiving. Behind me is my mom and one of my aunts working on her newsletter for the church. What I like about the internet, is you can work on this blog anywhere, and anytime. I am usually up at 1am EST on this blog, but it is right now, it is 3:47pm CST.


Please check out the website: for all you holiday gift needs. Need to organize, baskets and wrought iron items are the way to go... Entertainment needs, got you covered with pottery. Need a little romantic inspiration...Candles will set the mood. just go to my website. Do you have a chocolate lover. There is a sweatheart of a deal for you... a basket in the shape of a giant Hershey's Kiss. Check out the website, for the month of December.

Well, that is it for now. I will see you later, and happy holidays.

My Weekend

Just a quick note about weekends. They were OK. Yep, just OK. Last weekend was wonderful. I had my home party for Longaberger. I have two and a half orders. The half is I have not entered the last one in. This weekend was the craft show at my nephew's school. It ended up being an exposure event for me, because I receive no orders. I tried, and I think the reasons were I was tired from working Friday at the store (Holiday Extravaganza) from 9am -2pm, packing my bags for the craft show, and then watching This Is It with my mom and nephew, Mike. The movie was wonderful, and I knew that Michael Jackson was a genius, but this really showed his work. You should really go see it, even if you are not a MJ fan. The second reason for the poor sales was everyone was having a craft show yesterday, plus there was an International Festival at Vet's Memorial downtown Columbus. I do hope that the people that took a flyer will call me or place an order on the website. In case you want to order, it is I am aiming for $1,000 in sales for this month, so I hope you do. Lots of wonderful sales for this month and the month of December. If you are a Hershey fan, a very special basket and lid in the form of a giant Hershey's Kiss will be on sale next month. More on that later. there is even a buy one, get one half price sale on candles. Again, that is to order.

I will start making my cards for the holidays this month. I got two new cricut carts, and they are the mini carts, which are a limited edition. One is called, When its cold outside, and the other is called Christmas tags. you can find all the info on them at, although I believe they are sold out on the site. I received the carts from Kim Bush of Cutters Creek ( or click on the banner ad on the right side. She is wonderful, as a fast turnaround, and takes Paypal. When I get finish, I will post them like I did last year, (and one of the reasons why I started this blog.)

Well, I need to go to bed. Late post, and if this business thing is going to work, I will have to go to bed at a decent hour. I am thinking about quitting the job in January, and only do temp work when I need extra money, but we will see how that goes between now and January 1, which is fast aproaching. Pray that God will help me make the right decision. Good night, and God Bless you all. I will try to post something before Thanksgiving.
