Autumn has officially come to Ferrum, VA.  God has painted the forest trees in beautiful reds, oranges, and golds, and the serenity of the season is inspiring.  I am busily changing a few things around home for the coming holidays.  November will be a very busy month!  Craft shows are scheduled each weekend and I will have my family over for Thanksgiving dinner, as I do every year.  I really look forward to that!
Since Mom and Dad passed, we try to get together when we can.  Everyone is so busy these days, and it's hard to find a time that suits all schedules, but we try. 

I will try to get a few new listings in my Etsy and Zibbet shops within the next couple of weeks.  I really do try to update, but this is a very hectic time of year for us crafters.
I did set up at the Ferrum Rescue Squad last Sat. and it was worth the effort.  There was a lot of traffic due to the Ferrum Folklife Festival. I think this year was one of the better years for the festival.  A lot of people came to the event.  It was a great day, the weather was good and there are always lots of  folk art and old time artisans.  It's a really big deal for this small town.

God Bless Everyone!

A Good Week

This has really been a good week!  I have had some time to catch up on some craft ideas and things have really worked out smoothly.  God blesses each day, doesn't he?  My lovely daughter is on her way home today to attend Eric's concert tonight.  I am very proud of all my kids, and they share a very close bond. Thank you God!
My schedule for October is busy each weekend from now on. The 22nd I will be at the Floyd Crafters Market from 4-10pm. On the 23rd I will be at the Ferrum Rescue Squad for a craft set-up. There will be breakfast and lunch served. It's an 8am-6pm day, and we'll have crafts for sale the majority of the day.

My November dates are:
Nov. 6   Franklin County High School from 9-3
Nov. 12 Floyd Pavilion from 4-10
Nov. 13 Rotary Field, Stuart, VA from 8-4
Nov. 20 Bassett High School from 10-5
Nov. 21 Bassett High School from 1-5
Nov. 26 Floyd Pavilion from 4-10

Come see me at the shows and find out what's new for this season.  I have some new sellling outlets that I think will be very exciting for me.  Please add me to your prayer lists and may God bless you all!

Rejoicing in the Moment

Good Sunday morning to all! 
This has really been a busy weekend!  Friday night I set up all my goodies to sell at the Floyd crafters market. God blessed with good sales and we had a wonderful time with crafter friends and good old bluegrass music. Then up again at 5:00 to set up at Woolwine Fall Festival at the Woolwine Fire Dept.
Sales were good there too, but the day turned out to be a long one. We had a lot of fun, and there were lots of activities to do. Good food too! There are some good down home country cooks in Woolwine.
I was so tired last night when I got in!  I did sleep in a while this morning.
My craft buddy, Phillis was with me at Woolwine and we really had fun and a lot of giggles together.
My next 'gig' is in Floyd again on Friday, Oct. 22.  So, I have a much needed break this week.
Hope you all have a blessed week!
God is Good all the time!

The Floyd County High School Craft Show

Hi friends,

The craft show this weekend was wonderful. There was a lot of foot traffic, and we had a blast! I have made some great friends along the craft circuit, and this weekend I got to renew some of them.  The variety of artisans there is incredible. There was so much talent displayed.

Next week I will set up at the Floyd crafters market again on Friday night. Then on Saturday, I will be at Woolwine for their Fall Festival.  I covet your prayers for a successful show and perfect weather, as we will be outside for this one.

I'll be really busy this week getting things ready. I am excited about it.

Spent the day with my lovely daughter. We had a delicious lunch and then shopped for fabric at the Fancy Gap Pottery and Fabric Store. We also had time to check out a dress shop and a rustic little craft shop.
I had a very enjoyable day.  God has blessed me with a beautiful family and I really enjoy it when I can spend one on one time with each of my kids.  Priceless!

God Bless everyone!  We are never alone!
