Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and give thanks. I am grateful for so much, but above all, I am grateful for my family. I thank God that my husband, kids and I are healthy and content. I am also grateful for my extended family and all our wonderful friends, many of whom are like family.

Staci and I participated in this year's Columbine Craft Sale on Saturday, November 13th. This is our third year...we continue to create items with felted wool sweaters, paper, fabric and beads. We always have fun at these craft shows, mostly because we get to hang out. We also get a chance to see friends and visit with them when they come see us at our booth.
We are both happy with our sales. We look forward to our next craft fair on December 4th at Bear Creek High School. The Bear Creek Craft Fair is very popular in our area and had been a goal of ours to be accepted into this craft fair.
Here are some photos of items for sale in our booth:
Staci created these wonderful snowman earrings:

Saturday, October 30th was a busy day. Thankfully my family helped me out by helping me set up my table at MCA. My daughter Laura was great. She helped me so much and best of all, she kept me company during the entire day. We arrived at the museum shortly after 8:00 a.m. and were ready for the 10:00 a.m. opening. Soon after the market opened, Lisa and Sophie surprised us and since it was actually pretty busy at the time, we put them to work! Lisa was a great help and I was thankful she was there because I was feeling a bit overwhelmed. Things slowed down considerable by late morning and into the afternoon.
This was a great experience. My booth did well... I was pleased with my sales. Again, the best part was the time spent with my daughter Laura.
