A walk in the park and my Fall swap blessings!!!

Well, it's been a while!! I finally got through this weekends craft show at my church I co-chaired!! Lot's of hard work!! But in the end it paid off! We were all concerned once again with the economy but alot of people showed up and bought!!! I had gift baskets and little items to fill in. No pics this time! Darn it forgot the camera!!! But the above pics are from a couple of weeks ago. My husband and I found a really neat park we hadn't seen before and took a long walk there!! We were actually looking for a bathroom for me!! LOL Like always!!  We were out getting pics of the pretty Michigan fall colors that day!!! The other pics are from the Fall swap Lori had. My partner was Deb(garagesalegal), what a pretty and sweet lady she is! I felt so blessed!! She made me the Fall picture frame, cuz I love crows!! I loved everything she sent me!! and the last picture is from the thank you card she sent me, which she made and it has the image from the Thanksgiving stickers I sent her!!! Her cards are so beautiful!! Deb said she felt like it was Christmas when she got mine!! I just had alot of fun buying for her and felt blessed to pay it forward!! I have missed blogging and reading other blogs too!! But now I will have more time to check out what has beengoing on!! Can you believe Thanksgiving is only two weeks away!! Oh my!! Take care, XO Fran.

Pictures from the craft show!!!!

Here are a few pictures of what has been keeping me busy!! I love making all these crafts!! Lot's of good therapy!! It does keep you busy though! My friend has an antique shop and she puts most of my stuff there for me! She just loves my Raggedy Fran's in the suitcase. I have sold quite a few of them!! I did do alot better at this show than I thought I would. People are buying handmade and like the little things better. I felt like I had alot of stuff there but looking at these pictures I guess I didn't! Now I'm still making alot more for the big craft show at my church I am co-chairing. Doing lot's of advertising right now. I'll take more pictures of that one. Feels good to blog!! Missed you guys!! XO

A view from my window!

I love to sit in my bed in the mornings and drink my coffee and pray! When I look out my window this is what I can see! Over the winter we fed the birds in that corner garden so I could see them! I just knew there was gonna be sunflowers and crack grass growing there! LOL sure enough there is, but amazingly mainly the sunflowers, I did plant some old seeds I had and they are the big ones! You can see how tall they are by Kaitlin smelling them (in her Burger King uniform LOL! on her way to work) The birds, bees, and hummingbirds are loving them! and it's so cool to see them out there! This summer we also had a family of bluebirds nesting right on our porch in an old birdhouse I've had for years! This view is from the same window! They nested, had their babies, and then were gone! We loved them so much and were so blessed to have them that close to us! We have alot of nature around us, little gifts from God!
