HOHOHO it's that time of year!!!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....on my blog, an Etsy, and website.! I'm still working on them though. I thought since it's been a while I'd show you what I've been working on.
For the past few weeks we've been hard at work at the shop getting ready for the Holidays. Here is our new website we designed and created ourselves and this is our new Blog.
As you know I've done Craft Shows this year. This is my booth at the Sharonville Holiday Extravaganza. I know it seems a bit dark, but it wasn't at all. I had a table set up in the right corner of the booth where I did embroidery while people browsed. That opened up a lot of conversation with passerbys. I try to keep the booth set-up the same every time I do it...makes it much quicker. People are beginning to remember my brown canopy and now brown tableskirt with brown gingham cloth as a sort of trademark. I did 5 shows this year. Some were great others, not so much. Craft Shows are new to me so I want to try as many as feasable. I have made a lot of new crafty friends and this Saturday, Dec 5, there is another show at the Milford High School I just found out about a couple of weeks ago..too late to enter...and there are supposed to be almost 300 vendors?! I might stop out there just to see it. I wish I knew of some craft shows in the spring and summer months. If you happen to know of any in the Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana areas I'd appreciate any info. Well, guess I'd better close for now. Lunch is over and I have to get back to the flowers.

Hi, I liked the way that you had your things arranged in your booth. You have to do something to make them remember you that is for sure. I only did a couple of shows, but I may do some more later I really don't know.I checked into another one I heard about, but I guess they didn't have any room maybe it was just as well because I would had to take a day off work and really sold just to break even. I think I like some of the smaller ones because the vendors are more friendly. I can understand the size of yours because of your locations. I have been so tired the last few nights with everything that is going on right now. I haven't done any shopping yet, but I will have to wait and see. I have been trying to find listenings for craft shows on line. Some put out a magazine that tells you where and when, but you have to buy a subcription. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We enjoyed our gift card that my boss gave me for Thanksgiving at Cracker Barrel. Must close Your Missouri Friend Shirley
