Craft Fair Weekend, A Little Recreation and Vampires!

Happy Monday! The weekend passed in a blink as the weekends usually do. It was a weekend frenzy of activity! Let’s start at the beginning.

Friday afternoon I gathered and finalized all of my projects for the Onslow School craft sale on Saturday. I have been crafting for a while for myself and my family/friends. I knew some of the things that I was making people might like so I took my chance and put a table into the craft fair. Was I nervous? Absolutely. Not only am I as awkward as they come (standing behind a table while people come up to talk to me) but I also had the crafts that I love on display for scrutiny. Yikes!

Here is what my table looked like:

I had crayon rolls, aprons (tied with a wooden spoon), hair bows, holiday gift tags, nativity scenes, body sets (2 homemade lip balms, body scrub and soap) and wooden angels (actually Ryan made these). Yes, pretty random stuff, I know. Normally tables have a theme but I just wanted to make all the stuff that I love to make.

Overall, the craft fair was a great experience! I met some pretty great ladies some for the first time (Hi Jen!) and I got to sit across friends Stacy and Josee and chat when things got quiet. It was fun showing off all the things that I make while making some money for Christmas as well. Thanks to everyone who came out to see and support me on Saturday! :-)

After a busy craft fair I had to lay down for a quick nap because that evening Ryan and I picked up his niece and nephew and headed out for supper. The kids got pretty antsy during supper anticipating some skating! We headed to the arena and laced up our skates and skated to the music for an hour and a half.

It was fun visiting with the kids but I was pooped keeping up to them! ha ha! It was fun skating for the first time this winter season.

Sunday morning we got up early and headed over to my parents house for coffee and breakfast! We wanted to get there early to wish my Dad a very happy birthday!

Sunday afternoon I finally put away my Halloween decorations! I’m so glad to finally have some free time to take them down but it took all my strength not to go ahead and put up some Christmas decorations. Do you have any Christmas stuff up yet?

That afternoon I headed over to Sharon’s with Jilly for supper and a Twilight marathon! We have tickets for the MIDNIGHT PREIMERE of Breaking Dawn this Thursday and we wanted to refresh out minds (and hearts) to our favorite little vampire and werewolf. I haven’t seen the movies in forever and it made me super excited to see the next one on THURSDAY! WOO HOO! Hope the days pass by quickly.

How was your weekend?



  1. Thanks for much for the gift set...I thought I wouldn't like the scent of Coffee and SPice but it smells more like cinnamon and I LOVE the scrub!

  2. I have all of my Christmas stuff out. As far as I'm concerned as soon as November 1st rolls around it's fair game!

  3. They let you take your camera on the ice? No fair! When I went I had a disposable and got yelled at :(

  4. So excited to have my own "O Holy Night" tile now! Can't wait to get the my Christmas decorations out, especially with the new additions I got from you & Josee! :)

  5. I love my O Holy Night tile so much that I could not bear to put it away, its on my TV stand. Does that count as decorations? I don't think so. Its more of an icon for me. Advent One is the 27th, so feel free to decorate on that day!

    You & Ryan must be the coolest aunt and uncle!

  6. Good day! I could have sworn I've been to this web site before but after going through some of the articles I realized it's new to me.
