Here it is October and just where did the summer go? I know I did get quite a few bears designed and made and even did a new sock doll so I guess I have just been to busy to see the months slip by. I do know that it has been very hot all summer and I didn't want to leave the house. Grocery shopping, a couple of trips down to the casinos and some company in August and that has been about all my excitement.
Well now I am ready for the fall craft shows to start. We don't travel anymore, due to my hubby's health, so I do only local shows. There isn't much to choose from and they are all mixed crafts and commercial but I have learned to deal with what is available. I started doing a indoor swap meet in January of this year and everyone kept asking me, where were you before Christmas, so this year I am doing the swap meet starting next weekend. We will see what sales are like before the holidays. There are quite a few craft people who did the pre-holiday meet and they said they did pretty good. I will be there every 3 day weekend until the first week in November and then I do a straight 18 days outside show at the AVI Casino and Resort. I have done that show for the last 3 years and have done very well there. Do have to contend with the wind, which we have a lot in the fall but we anchor the canopy down and have never lost anything. After that it will be back to the swap meet until Christmas. I think I am going to be dragging after all that.
So if you don't see me again for a few weeks, you will know that I have just been busy or maybe just to tired to type.
