Just a quick post.....really?

I have been absent from this blog for several weeks and I'm trying to figure out how
 it is suddenly November 15th???????
First there were the craft shows.....
This year I added cake pedestals...large and small...vintage and new...

...and glass bowls and vases...



and my journals (this is a sampling)...












 there were some altered canvases made with vintage sheet music and images...




and of course banners and garlands...










Here's me with my Prednisone cheeks...oh my.


 I did say a quick post, right? LOL!
I will be back with another post soon....I have some exciting news and more photos!!
I will be trying to catch up with all of you this week. We are expecting
nine (9!!) house guests over the next 2 weeks....so much to do to get ready!
for now...
xoxo

I wish you would put some of your stuff for sale on your blog, Joy! I love those planners and journals! I see we have some paper in common, too. I have the egg and butterfly print papers that look aged, as well. I am hoarding them until I find a project that screams I must use them!

Hope you had a great sale and day!

Joyce - you look great! I don't want to spoil your news, but I know what it is. CONGRATULATIONS!! How exciting!
I love all your craft fair work! I especially love those pedestals. I have been wanting one like that. Did you sell them all?
How did you do overall - sell a lot? I went to a craft fair this weekend with Chloe and SPENT a lot! She loves to shop. Loved your post. Talk to you soon!

Joyce we have missed you! I have checked many times waiting for this post, and boy was it worth the wait! So many beautiful paper goodies, it's a good thing I'm not able to visit your sale. Your booth would be empty! The cake plates are such a great idea. Now on to celebrating the holiday! Elizabeth
