I had a blast and got so much done at the LCBC 4 day Card and Crop!  A shout out to Vicki Pitts and her crew for hosting us.  The photo above is the “Nice” group photo…but those who were there know that we have a few other pics to scrapbook that will only be seen on our personal pages. 😉 You all are my people, & this month, CTMH has a fun promotion called…

December is Here!

December is Here!

Hello Crafty Friends!  I hope you had a good Thanksgiving.  We hosted about 23 this year including someone who had never been a part of a big family Thanksgiving dinner.  That was very cool, but between that and  Black Friday shopping with my girls, I am a bit tired.  Now I am prepping  more Christmas Cards to have for sale at the GCHS Holiday Bazaar this coming Saturday.  I will have my CTMH vendor booth stocked with cash and carry items at the  Greenfield Central High School Holiday Bazaar on Saturday, December 7th between 8:30 am & 3:00 pm.  I hope you will stop by and see me was you take advantage of shopping with a variety of vendors who will be there.

I also want to give you a heads up that there will be a 24 hour Cyber Monday sale on my website later today  (starts 5pm EST).
