Hi all! It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to write. Fall is always a little hectic around here. It seems we go from our summer “tear the store apart and put it back together” August “break” to our New Year’s Sale without taking a breath! This year, we started in July with Nana being very sick and then going home to be with the Lord, we tore the store apart and put it back together, did a craft show, added a new grandbaby 🙂 and then the grandbaby and his mommy & daddy packed up and moved across the continent (We love & miss you Jo, Luke, & Jack!), and now we’re trying to process that information and continue heading toward the Christmas season and a much needed winter break.
I’m still trying to catch my breath!
And, I’m hoping to get back to regular blogging! Papercuttings have been selling like crazy, which is a good thing! I’ve been working daily to keep up with orders. Pumpkins were all the rage last month, and now turkeys are the thing. Trouble is, I REALLY need to get some Christmas things in the works! Yikes!
Today, one of our papercuttings went off to a Guild of American Papercutters exhibit at the Biltmore Estate. I discovered this evening that we put the wrong hanging get-up on the back, but I think/hope it can be remedied by sending additional hanging thingies to the dear lady setting up the exhibit. I hope for her sake all the contributors aren’t as scatter-brained as me! It’s been quite a while since we did a traveling exhibit with GAP, though, and it’s fun to be back in the papercutting loop. For a few years, I thought I had lost all interest and inspiration for papercuttings, but it seems to be coming back full force and the ideas are just snowballing. 🙂 I’m glad to get over that bump in the road!
Well, I guess I need to head off to bed to try and get some shut-eye! Looking very much forward to a restful Sunday! Goodnight!
