So much accomplished

Well, I know my posts aren't quite up to par as to what you may expect from me.  Nor have my comment returns to all my friends and followers been.  I do have good reason.  I allowed my dear daughter to confiscate my craft area and to let her creative mind do some exercise the last few days.  I also had to finish some things for the Craft Show I keep mentioning....sorry if I am boring you, but it is a real consumption as of a good way.  I will be back to normal around Monday, I HOPE!  :o)

I did a run through in my living room today, to practice set up and tear down with my daughter, who will be joining me Saturday.  I did a mock set-up so I could be sure that there would be room for all the different crafts I plan to take.  Lance built me an awesome backdrop to display my swags and wreaths from.  I love that he takes part in pushing me to pursue my dreams.  He doesn't just give me free reign, he helps when I really need it.  And I am amazed by his talent to throw things together so easily.  That's probably why we work so well.  For what I lack he has ample to contribute.  The backdrop is made from PVC piping that he spray sturdy too since he added a cross bar.  I will have an easel to display my memo boards, wicker baskets to display cards.  Albums will sit on the table for people to browse through my layouts.  Then I just need a spot for my wood crafts and hand painted ornaments. They may fit inside the wood crates I bought....hmmm...yes.  I think that will do just fine.  I just need to finish up with marketing and networking materials/supplies, inventory checklist, customer order sheets, price guides, and practice driving the white van before the hour trip to Middleburg Heights.  I am a good driver, but I dread driving a new vehicle when it is rather large and I have that long on the road.  Please keep me in your prayers!

I was able to finish up the bows for my friend's wedding.  She stopped by today, looking horribly stressed, as most women are, 2 days before the wedding, and breathed a sigh of relief to see that the bows were completed.  She had offered to pay, but my heart would not allow her to do that.  I offered the bows as a gift to her and her dh to be.  It is the least I can do for someone who so needed it.

I also was able to finish a wreath I had purchased trimmings for last week.  I didn't think I would get the chance to have it ready for the Craft Show, but surprised myself, by pushing through until it was complete. I will also probably glare at it so much, that I will decide to add more flowers.  I do that often.  Look at a wreath that I have finished, or so I thought, and judge it from different angles to be sure it is perfect. 

Is it enough, or does it need more??????  One lucky person who answers this question will get a surprise from me.....who shall it be???
 Thanks for stopping by
Happy Crafting!
