Changed My Mind, Again!

I'm sure you all will relate to my dilemma, I am trying to cut back on craft shows this year and I just can't make myself go to just one show! 

I had been looking over my past craft show note books this weekend and realized I used to do 7 shows in 6 weeks! Boy was that a wild ride.  I really don't know how I did it.  I know that with my websites I have had to spend more time on them and less on the Folk Art. 

So, I had myself all talked into just one show and I was feeling good about that decision, but there must have been something in the back of my mind because I didn't throw away the application.  We have such wonderful loyal customers at the Judy Dierker Craft Classic at the Foundry United Methodist Church show that I just couldn't drop off the radar without saying farewell!

here is a picture of last years booth.

Mr. MySpareTime and I talked it over and we decided we would take the booth for this year and let all my faithful friends know that this would be the last year for this show.  {I also wanted them to know that they could find me online or at the Northampton Show} 

I feel better about saying goodbye, but the panic has switched to making sure I have enough product.  We decided to just make what we could and sell it at both shows.  If we only have a few things to take to this last show, well so be it.  At least I can say my goodbyes and feel like I did what I should do.

Now on to other things!

Mr. MySpareTime and I have really been burning the candle at both ends to get all the Folk Art ready because our niece, Aubrie, is getting ready to have a baby! 

Here is the pretty new momma, Aubrie

 I have a mini vacation planned for the 4th of July weekend to go and visit and get my fill of new baby. I want to be at a place with the crafts that I can relax and recharge my batteries, so that means I will really push it until July. 

We are all so excited to see this new addition to our family.  We know she is having a boy and she is due on June 14th, but boy is she ready. It could be any minute, so I will let you all know when I become Great Aunt B! {I think the little stinker is holding out to be born on my birthday June 12th} A new baby how exciting and the best part is I can love it and give it back to someone else.

Do you remember that new baby smell? All sweet clean baby powder and throw up, shooey diapers and heaven all rolled into one!

I saw the cutest definition of a boy: noise with dirt on it!

Better get back to work or I'll never get finished.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. It's sad to know that you will no longer participate in Folk Arts. But I think, it is good for you. I mean, you still have an online shop to run and you also need rest and time for your family. Besides, a new member of the family has been born. He will surely make you enjoy your resting times as you manage your online shop.

  2. Hi Joana,
    Thanks for the support, I think you are right, I will enjoy a little down time with only two shows this year.
