Upgrades and Newbies

Hello Fabulous Friends!!

I am so glad you stopped by today! The calendar says it's almost autumn but by our weather here in coastal Louisiana it is still summer! Ugh. However we are blessed that the hurricane season has been non-existant in the Gulf of Mexico. We are thankful God has protected us down here!

Today we had a work day for our booth ... but at the house. We have a new booth arrangement and upgraded look so we needed new photos. (Most show organizers or juries require photos not only of the crafter's work but also one or more of the booth.) We had a prediction of a 50% chance of rain for this afternoon. Fortunately we beat the rain! Between the black table covers and the honey-colored panels in the background, it is reminiscent of our beloved Saints' black and gold. I didn't start out planning it that way but that is how it came out. I hope you like it. I am picturing it below.

Here is our old configuration ...

We believe it is an improvement but will fondly remember what we started with.

And now on to the newbies. The newbies include my facebook page and some craft show this fall that I have not been to before.

At my facebook page, I started something new today. I have begun a Featured Product of the Day. The featured product may be a new design or it could be one that has been on the back of my creatino station for a while. Sometimes it will be a coaster design and sometimes you find a trivet, plaque or card set featured. Here is today's Featured Product of the Day ...

Sentiment Reads:

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4)
