I Have My Life Back

Oh my gosh, after several intense weeks of preparing for a fund raiser spaghetti dinner at our fire station as well as a craft fair just a mile up the road, finally I have my life back!

Not only  am I chairman of the Spaghetti Dinner, I also opted to participate in the local Chief Fuller Craft Fair.  I shared a booth with my friend Paula who offered to ‘man’ the booth while I was off barking ‘orders’ at the fire station.  Paula made lovely earrings.  I had my Stampin’ Up! cards and a few catalogs.

I have my life back
This is my table partner, crafting friend, stamping student, neighbor and fellow fire auxiliary member, Paula.


I have my life back
Would I do it differently “next time”? Yes. But all things considered, I was happy with my cards and presentation.  At least my ID labels followed my branding theme, my beloved phone box.


I have my life back
I shaped some retired Designer Series Paper to fit inside two little crates so I could attach my little sign flag somewhere. The box was borrowed so I didn’t want to place sticky glue on the wood.


There’s not much wonder about why Kim selected this Waterfront card.  Check out her tee-shirt.


I have my life back
It wasn’t easy toting this display rack, purchased from a closing “Hallmark” store a few years ago, so I needed to have that photo next to it. Mission accomplished.


I ‘m glad I participated in both events.  I’m glad they’re successfully over.  And I’m very glad that I have my life back, at least for the time being.  Just think……in a few days (September 5th) the Holiday Catalog goes live and another round of ‘crazy fun’ begins.  Send me an email if you need a hard copy of the catalog.  You can click here for the PDF.  And don’t forget my online store when you’re ready to place your order.  And now it’s back out to the fire station to inventory and put away the charing dishes, take out containers, cups, etc etc etc.
