Autumn, Football and Craft Shows, Part II

Helllooo Fabulous Friends!

It seems we are getting a bit of a taste of fall her in south Louisiana. We had lows in the low 60's this morning and a high in the low 80's. Quite different from our usual fare. When my family went to church this morning, dd and I each brought a sweater anticipating a cool sanctuary. Turns out we didn’t need them but we were prepared anyway.

Football .... aarrggghhh. Don’t get me started. My favorite team has definitely had a rough start to the year compared to the last few years. It is heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, and maddening all at the same time. Ever feel like that when watching something happen that is so disappointing and you can do nothing to help it? Well it happens in real life as well as football. Then you have those gloruius moments when you want to jump and and down and squeal! LOL

That has kind of been my last week. Disappointed over a turn of events related to a business thing we attended, I had the same feelings then as I did over my favorite football team. In the middle of this event there was nothing I could do to stop what was going on. The bright spot is that I learned some questions to ask to help prevent this in the future. I have made a mental and written list so I can better prepare.

On a much brighter note, we attended an arts and crafts show at Shadows on the Teche in New Iberia, Louisiana, and had a booth there for our wares ... travertine coasters, trivets, plaques. It was absolutely an awesome Saturday there. A front came through during the week making room for cooler weather. Weather-wise it was perfect.

We had never attended this arts and crafts show, even as shoppers. We were so thrilled to meet so many gracious people, shoppers and other vendors as well. It was one of the most smoothly run shows we have been to. Those who visited our booth were so complimentary and gracious to us about our products. Many made purchases and financially we had a great day. We are so thankful to those who support artists and crafters and their handcrafted goodies. I always feel like I am taking home a little love when I bring home a handcrafted item.

I just want to finish on this note. I am just so grateful for all the blessings God has given us in our life. Here are a few of the things I am grateful for.....
~ a family ... not so perfect but we love each other anyway
~ a love for making what the crafts I make
~ others who are willing to buy from us
~ a God who loves us even when we mess up royally!

God bless,
