If It's Good Enough For Amazon ----


FIRST ... don't miss our new slideshow ... to the right of this post ... and be sure to click on the "speaker" so you can enjoy the music!

Tonight Sandy told me "Christmas is selling" and I guess being on Etsy for five years has JUST ABOUT made me into a seller.  BUT I'm still hesitating on putting out my Christmas ornaments (for sale) and my restored Halloween and Christmas art.  I think it's because I've spent more than half my life married to a man who has a complete, total meltdown every August --- he has to run to the store and comes home saying  (not yelling .. he never yells) -- but saying with disgust -- "WELL the August Christmas trees are up".  It drives him batty.  BUT Amazon is having IT'S first big sale ... their "Christmas in July" so I guess I have to take that last tiny step to becoming a REAL retailer huh? 

This has been quite the year for both Sandy and me.  She went to Texas for her first visit as a mother-in-law.  And she had a wonderful time with her married daughter and her new son-in-law.  We saw our last grandchild graduate this Spring.  That was very bittersweet.  AND out oldest granddaughter graduated from college this year.  And the middle child, our grandson, starts his second year of college this fall.  Where DO the years go?  My grandma used to say that all the time, and the older she got the more sadness there was in her voice.  I'm starting to understand.

And my first announcement here of an upcoming event:  I WILL be starting my SECOND shop soon.  I know, you've heard that before ... twice ... once from three of us, once from two of us ... and we're down to just me :+)  Sandy, of course, HAS two shops ... and I certainly can't let Sandy outdo me!!!   BUT I have ALWAYS wanted that supply shop and this time I'm doing it alone.  I'm having FUN loading it up with all sorts of goodies ... and keep making myself wait until I get at least 400 items in there.  I'm not a patient person!!!

SOOO I hope all of you are having a wonderful summer -- looking at the calendar, within a month the kids will all be back in school!  Where DOES the time go???
