Appomattox Railroad Festival

The festival is over. I can't believe it came and went so fast. I am so tired. My hubby retired the week before I was tired before we even left! lol I did better this year at the festival than last year. I got tart burners this year to sell and I think that really sold the tarts. Last year, I hardly sold any tarts. This year I had a display rack to make them easier to look at also. I sold only one Annie. I am a little disappointed in that. I wanted to move away from candles and focus on other things like Annies, but I guess that isn't a good idea. Everybody loves candles, especially me! It was good to see my family that I don't see much. Now I am trying to get back into the swing of things! I need to get busy making some Christmas ornaments. I would like to do some small local shows, but I am sharing a vehicle with my son and he works Saturdays. That stinks. Hopefully, he will get a car soon. Well, off to catch up on some tv!

Where is the Sun??

It has rained all week. Finally it is cooler weather. Not cool enough though. I love cool, crisp days. I have been working like crazy to finish my things for the Railroad Festival. It is next weekend. I can't believe it is time already! I finished my Annies finally. Got some scarecrows done. The candles have been done for a few weeks. I am going to make some quick crib quilts and some small Annies and I will be done. The baby is going to stay with his dad for a week. He is leaving tonight. I am going to miss him so bad but next week is a busy week with my hubby retiring so I won't be able to watch him, then we will be gone the weekend. I am sure the week will go by fast. I will be able to get the house cleaned before I go. I love to come home to a clean house. My oldest two will be home but they better keep it clean! I have been watching the Real Housewives of Orange County during the afternoons, and everytime they leave their kids throw a party. I am paranoid now. lol
