November 30, 2022 – What month is this, anyway?!

It’s the last day of November 2022. So much happened this month, but so little writing and tracking occurred. My very basic goal for this blog this year was to have at least one blog post per month. I failed back in July. But, that’s ok. I am catching up and moving forward. I am happiest when NOT sitting still.

A quick catch up. I participated in two craft fairs this month. They didn’t get added to my events page, but they happened. On November 12th I returned to St. Ann’s Holiday Gift Fair in Stoughton, WI. I had been waitlisted and someone fell ill. I was offered their spot and gladly accepted. It is always so nice at the St. Ann’s craft fair! The other vendors and customers are really nice people. As always, my only complaint is that I wish I had more creations to offer. I gotta get crackin’!

The following weekend I attended a new craft fair for me, in Markesan, WI. This was a two day event – Friday night and Saturday during the day. The people here were also fantastic and sales were steady. I would attend this one next year.

We hosted our family for Thanksgiving this year. DD made this kooky pastel turkey in art class. Now it is the last day of November.

That is my very quick rundown of November 2022. I am now off to the first Advent Service of the year. DD sings!

I hope your November has been a blessing to you and your Wednesday is wonderful!

August 31, 2022 – Summer Wrap Up and Coffee Break Fest Review

Hello, All!

This was a crazy, busy summer. I look back at my blog and see I have written nothing since June. Now that DD is back in school, it’s time to get back to work. I am stopping by just to say “hello” and share my annual Coffee Break Fest experience.

I absolutely love this craft fair! Every year we have such a great time. However, this year was a tough one. It rained. It poured. Maybe half of the car show participants showed up due to the rain. But it wasn’t hot and we had coffee and great music! Sales were not so good, but I take the responsibility for that. I didn’t put in enough effort this year, due to the “crazy, busy”. My booth could have been better stocked and it needs a face lift. Also, it rained.

I hope everyone had a fantastic summer and you are looking forward to fall as much as I am!

Have a nice Wednesday!
