I just wanted to wish you all a great Thanksgiving Day filled with lots of laughter, food, family & fun!! I am thankful for so many things this year. I will be spending the day & night cooking and cleaning, because I will be having Thanksgiving dinner at my house this year!! YIPPEE!! As some of you know, last year we were in TN., and did not get to spend any holidays with our family, so this is extra special for us. I wish my whole family could be here, but I feel so blessed to have some of them coming to spend time with us. Take care & Blessings until next time~~Jackie

~~Update Reminder~~

Whew!!! I have everything all ready for tonight to hit the button at 7 p.m.!! Here's just a little peek!! I didn't know if I'd make it since I woke up yeaterday to a terrible head cold!! I usually don't get sick, but somehow managed to catch a cold this time around!! I just stayed in bed most of the day with my work and managed to get things done in spite of this little bug!! A 2 hour napped helped!! : ) That's usually something that I never get either, and it sure felt good!! I may just take another this afternoon!! I may just get out the old Christmas movies and curl up under the nice warm covers & fall asleep to my favorite Christmas movie~~ The Little Drummer Boy, or my second favorite animated movie~~The Charlie Brown Christmas. No matter how old I get, I still have to watch them every year. : ) Hopefully, I won't sleep through my update!! Just kidding~~I'll set the alarm if I have to! Hope to "see" you there!! Blessings~~Jackie

~Simple Goods Show~

Well, the show is over and we had such a great time!! Max and Candy sure do know how to put on an awesome show!! They are such sweet and wonderful gals!! We only managed to get a couple of shots of our booth, and sadly none of the others, but I can tell you that they were all absolutely wonderful!! Perfectly Primitive!! I got to meet a couple new gals from the show only briefly as everyone was so busy with set ups, customers & then breaking everything down again but I did get to put some faces with names ~Susan of "Bittersweet Susan", Donna of "Crickets in the Corn" Faye & Twigs from Mercantile Gatherings, We even got to see some old friends from Wisconsin, and lots of on-line customers!! It was so nice to see my customers in person. What a great bunch of people. Even though it was a bit chilly on the porch, I'd do it again in a heartbeat!! If you have never been to this show, you have no idea what you are missing! Thank you Max & Candy for making this such a wonderful week end for us!!

The Show's Almost Here!!!

Well, today has been very busy, and we will be working well into the night to get everything packed up & ready to head to Mt. Vernon tomorrow!! We haven't done a show in a couple of years, and I had forgotten how much work is involved. Now, we just have to keep praying that the weather will turn out better than they are forecasting!! Well, my break time has just about run out, but I promise to post pictures of our booth & tell you all about the show on Monday. We are going to have a room with a hot tub in it & relax all week end!! Blessings~~Jackie
