A Crafty Post!

Wow, it's been over a month since I've posted here!
The kids are outside playing in the freshly fallen leaves and this seems as good a time as any to do a little catching up.
The girls and I have been crafting. Several months ago a friend told us of an opportunity to sell crafts at a local craft fair. She manages her girls business, Sewing Kits 4 Kids and they sell their products online and at craft fairs. If you have the time please click here . I really am proud of these girls!  
And here is a little more information about their business:


We thought it sounded like fun, a lot of work, but fun. My two girls had sold decorated flip-flops at a state-wide 4H event during the summer, so they had a little bit of experience. We had even gone so far as to call their little entrepreneural effort "Frou Frou 4 U."

 The girls selling their decorated flip-flops during a state-wide 4H event last summer. There were several other young entrepreneurs selling their hand-made products there also.


The craft fair was in October and the girls sold decoupaged glass vases and homemade Christmas ornaments. Although they didn't sell a lot, they learned a great deal. We're doing another craft fair in December. This time I'm going to be selling some of my own creations. The girls and I are excited and busy, busy, busy crafting!

And just gotta add that our great big mama cows are having their calves. We've got three thus far and are expecting two more.

And just a little more news...we've finally found a new church home! We're delighted and excited about this new opportunity to serve and witness as well as be a part of God's leading!

Have a fantastic week and God bless!

I love those vases-beautiful! The calf is adorable. We had 3 calves born this year, but sold a cow/calf pair a couple weeks ago. How exciting about finding a church-so happy for you! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Holly
