Experience is well worth it

So my first craft sale on my own is over and I really enjoyed the experience. It wasn’t the most lucrative sale wise, but it was worth it considering we only live 2 min. away. I really enjoyed figuring out my booth and how to set it up and setting it up and interacting with people and my chaperon. My brother is a joy to hang out with at any time, but it was fun for it to be just us. We had a lot of fun and he is such a good hard worker and I am very thankful for all of my brothers! I started packing right after the sale was over and my two older brothers arrived and it took us 2 trips out to the car and we were done! Awesome! The lady next to us was surprised we were out so fast. Those guys are the Bomb! So awesome! I love these guys!

Here are some pics of my booth.




The Master of the photo bomb right here!




The five new bags I made.



After The sale, and we got home, My oldest brother brought my nieces and nephews over for dinner and I had fun getting to spend time with each of them. They are such sweeties and so cute! Overall a good day and I am counting my blessings!

Oye Vey! lots more to do than I thought!

My sister tapped on the door and told me to give her a pair of scissors. They were playing outside and I came to the door to see my little brother, hanging upside down from the swing set by his boot lace. Poor kid! But I have to admit, he probably did have it coming to him. He is one of the adventurous ones in our family! Well, everyone in our family is adventurous in different ways. Winking smile



I love my sewing machine! This Puppy can carry a heavy load! Going through lots of layer of heavy canvas!



Look at these lovely wallets! So pretty!



Looking forward to tomorrow! Will take pictures and post them later!
