Crafts Fair Season

It's that time of the year again...the time for selling my items at local crafts fairs. I love this time of the year. The days are getting colder, thoughts of the holidays start to surface, and ladies at come in wearing Thanksgiving and Christmas sweatshirts. You know that the holidays are almost here!

This year I've got booths at five different crafts shows -- The most I've ever had. The first three have been very slow, which is a little discouraging. Several of us crafters have discussed the possible reasons for this, and all include the basic idea that with the economy down people just do not have the extra disposable income to spend. No matter what the reason, I'm hoping sales will pick up as the holidays draw nearer.
Here are a couple of pictures of my booth at the most recent show I attended.

Majestic Montana!

My husband and I just returned from a much-needed vacation to visit his sister's family in Whitefish. We had a blast. The mountains, especially Glacier Nat'l Park, were phenomenal. There's just no picture that can show the magnitude of its grandeur. It's something you have to see in person to understand. Needless to say, I'm going to create one heck of a scrapbook with more than 800 photos we took while there.
