I’m still battling this dumb eye infection and bronchitis, but at least I am not contagious!
Since I wasn’t contagious, I did have a great time at the craft fair last Saturday. I thought I would share a few photos of my booth. One of my daughters helped me set up on Friday night, and then another one helped me (along with some good friends!) work the booth on Saturday. The Saturday-helping daughter rearranged what the Friday-helping daughter had done. Kids!
But here are photos from Friday’s set up.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by! It was a fun and fabulous day!
I know this is late notice. I do apologize for that. If you are friends with me on facebook, you know that I have been making tons of cute things for this upcoming sale, as well as being not so well.
Anyway, on to the important details!! I am participating in the St Mary’s of Nazareth Church’s craft sale this year! Woot! It’s at 4600 Meredith in Des Moines. Here is a link with the map to it. I’ll be there from 8 am til 4 pm. Well, let me amend that a tiny bit. I HOPE to be there, but if I’m not, my things still will be. My daughter and a friend and her daughter will be there.
I’m running a special, too. If you mention seeing this online, you will get a free gift! Fun, huh?
We set up tomorrow afternoon. I’ll try to remember to take some pictures to upload tomorrow evening to show you.
I’m so excited! I hope to see all of you there! Thanks!
Are you ready for the low down on this great sale?
A group of Des Moines area artists are having a sale! This isn’t anything to “howl” at! Come on by and see what great deals you can get for a steal.
I’ll be there, with some awesome deals.
SPOOKY TRUNK SHOW
Sunday, October 24th
Wildwood Lodge’s Thunder Bay Room (lower level)
11431 Forest Avenue
Don’t be a scaredy cat. Stop in and see us!
So I got invited to be in this fall/Halloween sale next Sunday at Wildwood Lodge. Awesome!
But now I am scurrying like a squirrel to get more fall/Halloween things ready. My room is a PIGSTY! It’s awful!
I am confessing to you and indeed, the whole of the internet that I am a messy creator. Good thing the Lord didn’t ask my help when for those 7 days….I’m not very tidy! I think I would have had some left over stars or something. LOL!
I’ve included some pics, so you can see how bad it really is.
I bet it doesn’t get cleaned up til after the sale, either. Oh well. Life is rough all around, huh?
P.S. I will post more about the sale later. I just wanna tease you about it now. But it is Sunday, Oct 24, from noon til 4 pm in West Des Moines, Iowa.
Enjoy my mess!
(look, Renda! I am tweeting! LOL)
See the orange cards on the counter to the right? That’s where I am working! That little bitty space!
Next week, I clean up my room! It hasn’t really been clean since May or so, I am sorry to say. In a way, that’s a good thing, cause it means I have been busy!
There are a lot of “National ___ Month” in October. Breast Cancer Awaremess Month, National Dental Hygiene Month, and Cyber Security Awareness Month.
The one that is closest to my heart is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This is something that I went thru, ten years ago.
I have done a lot of speaking to various groups about Domestic Violence. Nearly every time I speak to law enforcement, one of the officers will ask me where I think I would be today, if I had stayed in that marriage. I tell them “I think I would be dead. I think he would have killed melf and our children by now.” They always agree with me, and comment that they wanted to know if I was aware of that.
Most people think that DV is only if he is beating the snot out of you Here you physically. Yes, that is one part of it, but there is so very much more. The physical scars heal pretty fast, but the emotional scars….I am still working on healing those, ten years later.
Here is a site that has more information. http://www.domesticviolence.org/
I am praying that NO one is in a dangerous situation. I am also praying that you will read this site a little bit, to be able to help anyone you may know that living this nightmare.
Just be aware…please.
God bless you.
Do you have one of these pesky things? Mine seems to get things added to it each night, while I am sleeping!
Personally, I think that’s just mean.
Today, my list includes:
*working on my Christmas Cards (hint, hint, order yours soon!)
*running my dad to the doctor (just a check up, he’s 88 now)
*plan the family reunion for next month
*fold and put away clean laundry
*feed the dogs
*list somethings on craigslist
*work some more on my business class homework
I think I am going to stop there, since it is almost 11 am, and I am going to be gone for the afternoon!
What’s on your list for today?
Come see me tomorrow! I will be at another multi-vendor sale Saturday, Sept 25.
It’s in Pleasant Hill, just east of Des Moines, Iowa.
355 NE 56th Street in Pleasant Hill (south off of University, left at the Wells Fargo Bank,
just west of the bypass highway) Clear down the street on the left.
Feel free to pass this on to friends or bring friends!
Sunday is my birthday.
If you wish me happy birthday, you will receive a gift!
I have a lot of new product to share with you, too.
I hope to see a lot of you there! Can’t wait!
You can tell by the amount of mess I have to clean up, how
hard I have been working. LOL! Feel privileged to see this…
I wouldn’t share it with just anyone.
Now, when will you be over to help me clean up?
I will be having my cards and scrapbooks at another show next Saturday, September 25. It will be in Pleasant Hill, Iowa again. 335 NE 56th Street, to be exact.
I will be there from 10am til 3 pm. Please stop by if you are in the area and say hi!
Here is the new display rack I have been working on filling
up the last few days. Pretty spiffy, huh?
Here is your opprotunity to save 20% on some cards!
My daughter has joined the dance team for Southeast Warren. She is needing to raise some money to be a part of this, so we are selling cards. We are selling a package of 10 cards for $20. That’s 20% off the normal price. Usually, I sell 10 cards for $25.00.

I’m back in the saddle again. OK, I will quit singing. I went to business class again and got a LOT of information. I am ready to go on this again!
I am going to be a busy girl, doing all my work, but I want to recommit publicly (which means I *have* to do it, right?) to blogging more often. Hang on to your monitors, cause this will be going fast.
For now, I wanted to try to clear up the confusion of my last post, http://handstampedbylove.com/blog/?p=80 .
Let me see if I can make this easier. I got a LOT of questions about it. When you buy 3 cards, you get one free. With the discount and the free card, that raises your discount per set of 4 cards to 40% off. 4 cards for $6.00
I hope that makes it clearer. If it doesn’t, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for reading and shopping.
See ya on Monday!
Have a blessed weekend.
