Week-end in Review

What a week-end.  Something that we did spur-of-the-moment turned out to be one of the best parts of the week-end, while another thing that I've been planning for weeks was an "epic fail."  First things first:  on Friday evening we were invited to go hear a concert by the band "Gungor".  We had never heard of them, but decided at the last minute if there were tickets available, we'd go.  Wow!  What an incredible concert!  You can check out one of their songs here.  We met up with some friends and had a wonderful time!

Saturday was the craft fair that I've been working on for weeks.  I've never done anything like it before, but thought I would give it a try since it was at my church and quite inexpensive.  I was off work all week (spring break), so I worked hard to get everything all ready.  Here's a couple of pics of my stuff:

It was mostly cards, with a few signs and bookmarks -- nothing over $8.00.  I figured they would appeal to just about anyone.  So, long story short, I sold 5 cards and 2 bookmarks.  My net income was a grand total of $3.00.  And that's not counting my time and materials.  (Although most of the stuff I already had in my stash).  But I did learn a few things -- the main one is that I am NOT wired to sell.  The craft fair circuit is not for me.  I'll just have to bless my friends with cards, book marks and signs.

Today we celebrated my husband's birthday.  The whole family came over with significant others.  We dyed Easter eggs, ate spaghetti and tried to take a group shot of us all jumping.  It's a lot harder than it looks!

 It was easier just to be goofy:
All in all, it was a great week-end.  Hope yours was as well!


  1. I love your cards, bookmarks and signs; I wish I could have visited the craft fair to buy some! I also love the pictures! Thanks for sharing your life!

  2. Fascinating! Well.... if I'd been at the craft show I would have been picking up some of your items. They look wonderful!


I love reading your comments!
