Finally rested after a long weekend!

Okay, I'm finally rested enough to update my blog. I was so tired yesterday and planned to rest, get some stuff cleaned up from the weekend and all those plans went awry with a SEPTIC TANK problem!! Won't go into that yucky mess!

Before the Mistletoe Market this past weekend I had a clay class.



Glenda

This was Glenda's first class with me!



















Lanelle

Lanelle won the drawing and got to take home the project piece I created with them in class.

Mistletoe Market ~ we set up on Thursday and the event was Friday ~ Sunday. We had such a blast and customers were so receptive to what Nicole and I had created!! Saturday was our busiest day and we literally didn't talk to each other for hours because we were so busy painting and personalizing things.
Here are some pictures of our set up - wish I had taken closer pictures of our ornaments and the amazing ornaments that Nicole painted over the weekend. We had some special requests this year - pink flamingoes, John Deere Tractors, cars, ballet slippers, etc. It was too fun!
















































Well, gotta go ~ the septic tank people are here! Not looking forward to this expense before the holidays.
Have a wonderful day.
Blessings,
Sandy

Mistletoe Market - Perry Georgia
GA National Fairgrounds

That's where I've been and will be today! We have had such a wonderful show so far and look forward to the final day today. The customers have been so nice and you certainly wouldn't know that the economy is hurting. The Balvanuca Club that is hosting the event go up and beyond when it comes to hospitality ~ always checking to see if we need anything at all. I'll fill you in with pictures and all in the next coming days.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
Blessings,
Sandy

Finally an update!
I've been busy busy busy and have lots to share.
First off, my hubby is now officially retired from the USAF! He served 22 years and this is a new phase in our life - retirees.

Last week when I was at paint class my hubby took this adorable picture of our pups - Posh & Becks - aren't they cute?































Last Saturday we painted this adorable snowman with sweet treats. It's painted on a canvas board and is intended to be used as a placemat.

Sherry made another lace place with red and green and I just had to take a picture of her with it. Love the colors on it!















Today we painted ornaments! We painted poinsettias, evergreen sprigs, pinecones, holly and berries, snowmen and rosebuds. We had so much fun and I'm sure these ladies will be giving away boxes of oranments as gifts this year.
