So sweet of you to say so, Diane. I've been lurking here now and then, but not posting much because I decided not to do shows this year (or maybe any year, lol.)
Last fall I did about 8 shows leading right up to Christmas and literally stayed up nights on end to get ready. I have a large family and Christmas is a big deal around here, too. I was just exhausted when it was all over. The monetary results were pretty disappointing, but overall I enjoyed being at the shows and meeting all the nice fellow crafters.
I've decided this year that I'm working for love, not money! I'm still making stuff but mainly for gifts for family and friends.
Thanks again. It's nice to be missed.
