And products are starting to sell out.

It’s Sale Saturday! We, as demonstrators, have been doing a good job of showing you the crafters what is cool to have. So, the Purple Posy Ink Pad, Copper Delicata Pad, and the Moose Punch are no longer in stock. With that I will leave you the host code and not much more since I have swaps to get done for OnStage.

If you would like to order online please use host code 7UW2MACE to help Jodi. This code will be good until Monday evening at 7:30. If you prefer to order in person please contact me.

Happy Crafting!

Sometimes you need french toast.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. Sometimes the ones closest to you get the worst of it.

When I am going through something the ones closest tend to get my grumpies. I tend to not want to talk and just get through life until it gets better. I was reminded this week that it only gets better when you choose it or take the time to fix it.

I had been trying to ignore things since I felt like I had just finished being part of a bad break up. I was beginning to move past it but still wasn’t my “normal” self. I had been playing catch up with work as I had let a few things slip through the cracks.

Well, all I can say, is sometimes you need a friend to pull up in your driveway and say come on we are going to breakfast. Just to know someone cares and knows me that well is a bit refreshing. And in case you didn’t know, french toast really does fix everything.

Who are you friends with that might need a visit?

Using a block to glue.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Did you know a clear block can be used for more than stamps? When using the felt accessories you might have trouble getting them to stick. Instead of using glue dots or tear and tape try the multipurpose glue. Place a little on the felt and stick to the base. Then place a clear block over the accessory. There is just enough weight in the block to get the felt to adhere properly.

Acetate box is for more than cards.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today’s technique is more of a tip.

Soon it will be time to dash out the door and head off to Grandma’s for that infamous turkey dinner. What will you bring? Grab an acetate box and tape it shut on the bottom. Then grab a clear bag. Fill the bag with some of your favorite small candies. (Make sure to leave enough to have a few yourself.) Then place inside the box. Decorate the box with a cute turkey, feathers, something festive. Now, hurry, you might already be late. Safe travels to you.

At peace with rest.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Today is the day to rest and recharge. I usually rest by not doing anything. Anything! But I also enjoy talking to people and being social. So, for today, I am enjoying talking with craft fair goers and simply enjoying being where I am. I love feeling like I am present. It is great to feel at peace and rested while still working. Did I tell you I love my job? Thank you for allowing me to do what I do.

Do you enjoy what you do? Or at least an aspect of it?

Simplify to give back.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.

Do you ever feel that you are so busy that you are never present? Do you constantly look at the time and think about where else you should be? Sometimes cutting a few things out or simplifying life means being more present in what you are doing.

What do you need to cut so you can be more present?

Frosted Flossing

It’s Tutorial Thursday! We are talking about frosted flossing today and it’s not the dance. I am taking the Feels Like Frost Paper and creating an elegant card. The floss comes in when I am gathering the ribbon.
