This and That

Congratulations to Karri who was the winner of the Valentine Giveaway package on the Joli Paquet blog yesterday. Cindy put together a great bunch of goodies perfect for lots of Valentine crafting. I'm giving you a tiny little sneaky-peek (shown above) of what's coming up Tuesday on the JP blog - It's MY day to share a lovely project with you, so be sure to be there!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend. We are trying to keep warm here. Actually we are experiencing a slight heatwave (9 degrees) in comparison to a couple of days ago when it was minus 16 degrees - brrrrrr! Everything is relative when it comes to weather here in the Midwest. When the season first changes and temperatures begin to drop, 45-50 degrees can seem cold. But after a few days you adjust and it doesn't seem so bad. I think it's the same during the bitter cold temps of anything that's below zero degrees. It's amazing how our bodies can acclimate to the weather.

In between crafting and putting together kits for Joli Paquet, we've been doing a little housekeeping at our house. We finally got all the Christmas boxes packed up and put away. It's really scary when I see how many decorations we have for just that one holiday. Many I haven't used in years, but can't bear to part with because they are so beautiful or hold sentimental value. I did give our daughter some things this year to use in her new home, but even by doing that and bringing a load of Christmas decor stuff to Goodwill we still have the same number of boxes to put away. How is that even possible? Oh well, it is packed up and out of sight now, so I don't have to worry about it again until next Christmas!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

My name is Angela Harris and I've been interested in finding out more about what lollishops is. Although I've read alot about it I wanted to get the opinion of someone who actually is a vendor. I was wondering if you could tell me if you like it and how it compares to your Etsy shop and what pros you see in having the lollishop as well as the Etsy shop. I know the site is fairly new but obviously I'm worried about spending more than there will be sales. Thank you so much!
