I Have a Large Family

I have a large family...
and..for the most part...
I'm very happy that I do.

Sometimes can be difficult
when something happens that kind of 
turns my normal routine
upside down.

I recently had to travel across state because of a family emergency...
concerning two of my grandchildren.
My daughters and I had to drive most of the night,
we picked up the girls and then had to turn around
and drive back.
I don't know how I managed it...but I drove
the last leg of the trip
with NO Sleep
and didn't doze off even once.

Now.. 'suddenly' all six of my children
are now living within minutes from me.
My oldest child (daddy of the girls) had to have
emergency surgery...
but he will be moving, with the girls, in with my daughter
until he is better...
and set up house here in town.

It's been a while since all of my children lived within minutes
but I think it is all for the best...
so I am happy.

It's put me way behind with my shops...but 'family' has always
come first with hopefully the good Lord
will give us all a helping hand
and maybe give me the energy I need to get all caught up
without upsetting any of my collectors..
as I do try to make sure everyone is happy.

I'm working on some new product for my Zazzle Store.

This is my
complete with the soup recipe
now listed on Zazzle.

I also have a Chocolate Chip Cookie Mug
and a Salsa Mug.
(Which I will probably take off at some point.)
What I plan to do is to have a whole
series of 
Soup Recipe Mugs
in the Store over the next week or two.

I personally think it is such a clever idea:)

 A week ago Friday
I went to see the play

This is a photo of my son, Patrick...
He was not only in the play...he play several different characters...
and did a great job with each one!!

It really was such a very good play..
I was thrilled that I was able to attend...
and even shed a tear or two at the end!

Great job and congrats to all of the cast and crew!!!

I think I'm figuring it out....

It took me a few days...but I think I'm finally
figuring out

Actually...I sold a couple of items and the
kind person who purchased the items
was so sweet to offer a few suggestions of what
I might do to make this shop a little
easier to find.

How very sweet of her.

I wouldn't normally have opened a new shop anywhere
at this time of year..since I am always
busier than normal during the Fall Season...
but since I didn't really want to lose all the work I'd put into
the Shop at 1000 Markets...
and 1000 Markets was acquired by Bonanza...
I didn't really have much choice.

But..I might actually like being there..once I get it all figured out!
