Wow it's been a long time!!!

I guess I've kinda been in a funk lately. I kicked my own butt physically but I am getting better. I lost a good friend to cancer very fast and his funeral was this week. His nic name was "The Harmonica Man" and his wife had one of the bands he played with do the music at his funeral. Our church was packed and the house was a rocking! What a tribute to a great man who will be missed greatly.

I thought I would show you the little owl candy holders I made out of toilet paper rolls a while back. They turned out so cute!!

 I want to show you guys the Halloween Shaker I won from Jill Her daughter Mary picked my name. There are better pictures on her blog. 

 She has opened a new etsy shop,, where she sells these wooden sewing thread spool ornaments and much more. Jill is self taught and very talented .

I feel so blessed and thankful to all of my blog friends. Such giving and caring talented ladies. Thanksgiving is a time to count your blessings and I count each and every one of you as a part of my blessings this year!
I am working like an elf getting ready to do more craft shows and a couple of Santa workshops at the schools. I will try to post more pictures of them as I do them. I am also trying to get to the cool sales the stores are already having!! I've been using alot of coupons I've gotten in the mail. Kaitlin and I have been doing our grocery shopping using coupons too. Our last trip to Krogers we saved $76.00. It is a great feeling to do it. It takes a little more time but well worth it. I hope you all are getting in on the savings too. But I don't think I will be getting up real early on Black Friday! LOL How about you? 
XO Fran.
