Today I was featured as one of Sharon Greenthal's give-aways on her blog http://www.emptyhousefullmind.com/goodbye-meh-list-ill-miss-you/. Sharon and I had conversed some time ago how she felt one of my outdoor signs would make a great prize, so give me a pat on the back and I am sure to respond. With her lovely plug she also suggested that people follow my blog. That is when it hit me...I haven't updated my blog for some time.
Back in June, I wrote a beautiful remembrance to my father who passed last August. It was so personal and intimate I chose to keep it private. Now mind you, I have a huge list of topics to write about, I just don't seem to find the time. My Etsy store keeps me busy as well as doing craft shows. Here is one example.
We just arrived back in Ohio after spending the winter in Florida. On the way we stopped at a lovely antique market and participated in their monthly event, http://www.woodstockmarketshow.com/. About a dozen or more artists and antique dealers were set up in the parking lot hoping to entice a visitor of the antique market to shop their wares. I chose to be one of those. It was so hot and being a holiday weekend everyone said the crowd was smaller than usual. But we persevered and made enough money to cover our camping fees at the local state park.
We closed up shop there and moved onward to Ohio where we are currently staying in our RV for the summer months. It makes for a cramped living quarters, but with the weather being so nice, we are often outside working. The orders for custom signs has developed into a very lucrative business and I love doing working with my clients on their design ideas.
Well, I must close, but promise that I will do a better job of more frequent postings. The Ohio State Fair is upcoming and I am working on new items and looking forward to spending the entire time in the Heritage Crafts building. If you are in the neighborhood, please stop and visit with me.
Until we meet again...
