Is it really September?

Where on earth did summer go?  It even already feels like fall in the air as it has been rainy and cloudy here for days.  I hope that the weather man is right and it warms up this weekend, I really need a good camping trip to top off the summer!

So the open house....  Well I would like to say that it went wonderfully and was super busy, but alas it was not to be.  It went smoothly enough and I learned a great deal from it and I did make some sales and one really great connection, so from that respect I feel that it was profitable enough :)

The farmer's market on Saturday was my best ever and it felt good, real good if you know what I mean!  Then I zipped downtown to meet my friend Michelle for lunch at Starkey's and had a blast watching the rain while catching up on girl talk. 

This morning I was up early and out the door to Capelli's and had my hair cut by Sherry and dropped off seven bags for consignment!!  I am hopeful that they do well there, I guess I will just have to be patient and see what happens this next month.

I still haven't met with Laura from Murdoch's yet. We have rescheduled a couple of times and I think we finally have a date that will work for both of us, next Thursday the 9th at noon!  Wish me luck everyone, this could be the big one!!

I also applied for a juried arts and crafts fair put on by our local Help Center.  It's Thanksgiving weekend at our fairgrounds for two days.  I won't know if I was approved until the first week of October.  It's a good thing I have plenty to do between now and then to keep myself busy and my mind off it!!

I also finally have a launch date for my Etsy shop!  I will be loading purses, totebags and checkbook covers into my Etsy shop on September 19th!!  After my sucessful market last Saturday and dropping off items at Capelli's, I don't have anything left!   And with me being gone camping this weekend, and in WA state next weekend for my 25 year (gasp) class reunion, I will have not time until then to get my Etsy shop set up. 

That's all for now folks.
