It’s Snowing! Yes SNOWING! it’s crazy! last week when it snowed I wasn’t very happy about it!
But now I’ve realized that I can be cranky all I want over it! But mother nature isn’t going to change her mind! So this morning when I woke up to MORE snow on the ground I decided to be happy about it! I really love snow! It’s beautiful! I just wasn’t ready for it! So this is what it looks like outside my house!
The summer wasn’t to bad here! seemed very short! although I was ready for fall! didn’t get much of a fall it went from summer to SNOW! !
As those of you that do read my blog might of already known that I starting making and selling jewelry last spring! Well did’n’t have much luck with that sold like three things at the farmers market! *people just weren’t looking to buy things like that I guess* But me being me I got discouraged and gave up! It wasn’t worth spending my Saturdays at the market when I could be camping or doing other things! So then I was planning on doing the holiday market this month *it’s part of the farmers market!* and I figured ppl would more be looking for what i sold there then the ppl shopping at the market over the summer! We I decided that I didn’t just want to make jewelry anymore! I have a hard time sticking with just one thing! I like variety! So I finally pulled out my sewing machine that has been sitting in my closet for YEARS even when I lived at home! *it was just easier for me to sew by hand!* WHAT WAS I THINKING? gosh It’s so much faster and nicer to use the machine🙂 So I’ve started to making all sorts of things! I’ve been making tooth fairy pillows, rice bags, slip covers for the rice bags, cute little tote bags, and I have a mile long list of things that I’m going to be making🙂
I will be redoing my display this winter sometime and hoping to have a huge inventory by spring to maybe do better next year at the markets!🙂
here are some pictures of my creativeness!!
Hope you all enjoy them! if you have any pointers or advise it’s more then welcome as I’m just learning the ropes here!
