It was so cold this weekend! Saturday was in the 40’s but with the wind blowing it felt like it was mid 30’s. Saturday night the temperatures dropped down into the lower 20’s. That is crazy for us here this time of year! It’s normally in the 50’s or lower 60’s. I found Christmas pictures from a couple of years ago and we are all standing outside in t-shirts! Maybe this year we will actually have a white Christmas.
Saturday I was in a craft show. It went really well. I was so nervous since it was my first show. I kept waking up throughout the night thinking I had overslept. So during the show I was so tired! I was surprised at the turnout – there were quite a lot of shoppers. I actually did better than I thought I was going to.

There was a lady and her husband at the table beside of me who were super sweet. She had made beautiful Christmas wreathes and centerpieces. She also had packages of snowman soup. It is a little bag of hot chocolate, marshmallows and a candy cane. The note attached says:
Was told you’ve been
good this year
Always glad to hear it!
With the freezing weather near,
You’ll need to warm the spirit.
So here’s a little Snowman Soup,
Complete with stirring stick!
Add hot water, sip it slow…
It’s sure to do the trick!
I thought that was so cute! She also had dog bones, lip balm, candy, and reindeer food. She was so creative!
There were a lot of crafters there as well as a few Direct Sells companies like Scentsy, Pampered Chef, and a few others. There was a bake sale with lots of cookies and cakes and the ladies from the church prepared food for breakfast and lunch. They even had a wrapping station in the corner in case you bought gifts and wanted them wrapped! They really thought of everything.
I’m glad that I did the show. It is way out of my comfort zone to do something like that.
Now I need to get to work updating my Etsy shop for Christmas gifts!
And go to the grocery store.
And do homeschool.
And clean the house.
And do laundry.
And the list goes on and on…
A woman’s work is never done!
