Do you like SURPRISES???

If you like surprises, then jump on over to Heather's Heartfelt Stitches and enter her 200th post giveaway! She has a box full of goodies for the winner!

As for me.....I am just trying to get my house organized after bringing in all of my leftovers from my last craft show of the year. We had a GREAT time as usual. As for sales, they were a bit slow. But we also had some not so nice weather, so I think that kept people from coming a bit. My boys even joined in on the fun this time. They are becoming my little entrepreneurs! :) They each made a project for the show to sell....and they did better than ME! :) It was wonderful. Unfortunatly they sold out, and the bad mom I am...I had forgotten my camera Saturday! But Jude, my 11 year old worked hard with dad making 24 paper mache ornies. And you should have seen the way those little elderly ladies just ate up their smiles, and bought their things. It was such a good feeling to see them succeed so well. And Aidan, my 6 year old...he made Magic Reindeer Food. He too sold out! They made a killing! :) So they each get $10 to spend, the rest went into a bank for them to use for supplies for their NEXT venture! :) It made them feel really good to earn their own money that way. So I told them that our next show will be in they need to get their thinking caps on!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are getting finished up on that Christmas shopping! I only have a couple things left, and then I am all done! Take care and have a wonderful Monday!

How fun for your boys to be involved with your crafting, Laura! I'll bet they charmed all of the ladies ... And such a nice way to learn about saving, too.

Have you finished your Christmas decorating yet??? Any pictures to show us???

It's so great to have your boys involved with your craft booth. I get excited when I sell things, I can just imagine how they felt when their handmades were selling like hot cakes!
