Help!!!! Or a Great opportunity for Crafters

If anyone is in the Orange County Area of CA, would you like to share a booth at a good sized craft fair with me? It is this Saturday, May 2. I have already paid for a 9'x6' booth, but with all the crazy in my life I'm barely going to pull off a long table of stuff.

Email me, and I'll give you all the info.

Hopefully someone can take advantage of my lack of products!

Oh, its at Piecemakers in Costa Mesa, just down the street from Orange Coast College.

I'll be gone for a while....

Its getting to be crunch time for me. Since we are going to europe this summer, applying for a fulltime ministry position in Kansas City, having a huge garage sale, my first craft show, and my husbands graduation in may, I am now always busy.

I may not have time to post here very much before we leave, May 28. After that i definitly will be gone until mid august, at which time there will be traveling pictures galore for you to see.

I might post updates on my other blog, but thats ify at best.

Want to know what needs to get done in the next 5 weeks while I'm still working fulltime?
  • Gigantic garage sale april 25, make signs, organise, sell stuff
  • my first craft show may 2, make way more stuff, figure out how to make my space all cute, make business cards, price things, make way more stuff,
  • plan husband's graduation party, probably may ?teenth a saturday. i will need to figure that out, invite people, do food(i'm cooking, so however many people come there will be way too much. Its a gift and a curse, like when once in a blue moon i make dinner for me and hubby, and we eat something not so good for a week. I grew up in a large fam, and it never looks like enough food) make sure my mil doesn't freak out about it, i'm sure theres more.
  • plan road trip and book hotel rooms. our missions trip training is in chicago, were from socal, were need to check out a ministry in kansas city on the way there, and leave our car with a friend in minneapolis. It'll be our one year anniversary too. good times, tons of driving. If you are in the kansas city area and want to meet up, i'll be there for 2 days. just not sure which 2 quite yet. theres sooooo much driving, and i need to nail this down so i can book the cheapest hotels i can find.
  • get ready to go to europe. crazy. i need to mail in my passport today. i should go do that.
Life is busy!! I know i will keep up on blogs til i leave, but I might not post again.

Look for me in august!!

some one elses give away, and its my 100th post

go check out coffeetimestitches, she is having a cute giveaway for her 400th post.

maybe i should have another give away for my 100th?

what would you like me to give away?

And the winner is...

first i would like to thank those of you who came to visit and play along with the giveaway.

I had fun seeing the comments, and i think i should have explained what i meant by "follower". I had some comments, saying they followed me, but they did not show up in my "list of followers" widget. I have no way of telling who "subscribes" to my blog via reader or bloglines or whatever, i can only see who "follows" my blog, via google friend connect thingy. If you "follow" and your pic shows up in the widget, you got credit for following me. If you subscribe, and called yourself a follower, I am so glad you read my blog, but you did not get points for following.


some of you got lots of points. Barb, for example, had the most, so thank you thank you for joining artfire and mentioning me.

You can still join artfire for less than the normal rate, but now its $12 a month instead of $7. which is still less than the "normal" unlimited account rate of $20 per month. Click the link on my side bar to find out more.

I have lots of things to list tomorrow and Friday. I have been playing with earrings after i saw some really cool ones at a wedding and said the winner is lili11, and i could totally make those.

so, things to list and things to mail. Friday will be busy. I also want to get to work on my treadle. I have an old toothbrush for the cast iron nooks and crannies, some wd40 for cleaning properties, and some singer sewing machine oil, umm, for the oiling part. and some scrubbers, and screwdrivers for getting pieces off and back on. And my treadle belt is in the mail! I'm hopping to sew on it this weekend. So fun.

Did you the miss the winner?

It's in there, look again

I had to do something fun today.
