This past weekend was non stop and today has been a total recon mission!Â Friday night and all day Saturday, I attended a local craft show.Â Unfortunately the turn out wasn’t great on Saturday, but I did pretty good.Â Â I sold all but two ornaments and had so much positive feedback.Â It was very encouraging!Â Yet, again I forgot my camera so I will have to wait to share with you.Â (My friend got some pictures, so I will have them soon!)
On to Sunday!Â Sunday’s always feel pretty productive for me (ironically I normally get nothing accomplished), but just going to church as a family and spending the day together revives me.Â This Sunday was even better!Â Some friends had asked me to help them make the Advent/ Giving Calendar, and this week worked out the best.Â Their were six of us total and I set up my garage as a Santa‘sÂ Bloggers workshop.
I will admit, I was a little giddy….check out the overly cheesy sign!! 😉
It didn’t take us long to get a system going.Â Some of us stamped buckets, while others organized and added twine.
Pallets ALWAYS come in handy.Â I used two of them as pole holders, by adding shelf brackets.
We had three different styles:Â found branches (like mine), birch (found at Micheal’s), and black bamboo (also at Micheal’s).Â It was fun to see that you can always make something fit your personality.
I am hoping once they get them up in their houses, they will let me take some pictures to show the different styles a little better.
As most of you already know, I LOVE Christmas!Â Check back later this week for a giveaway I hope you will find as exciting as me.
