It’s been quiet here at the blog today

Not sure if msgs. are going out and I am not receiving them or what. I have been crafting and creating the last 3 days. dh is at home holding down the fort while dd and I are at The Croppers Cottage. I have also received an order from a store at home where I have wholesaled some monogram coasters. They have ordered 4 more. I have been challenging myself even on this trip to create by posting challenges with a deadline at my fb page. So far I have met the challenges. I hope you’ll stop by and see what I’ve created and if you like my work, I hope you’ll “like” it and share it.
I am excited that this business is picking up. This past Tuesday I got a rush order that was big. Not sure if I posted it here but … dh’s barber needed some more gifts for her wedding party. She ordered 5 sets of coasters with matching trivets. Then she also ordered a different set of coasters. I had to get it out by Thursday morning because I was leaving to go on my crafty weekend. I ended up getting it done on Tuesday and delivered on Wednesday. It produced some much needed cash for the business. Plus it is getting my name out there.

We are going to have some custom shelving built for my studio at home. I have had to stash stuff in the living room because there is not room to store in my studio. The shelves will be about an inch thick and all will be adjustable and about 16 inches deep. Certainly sturdy enough to hold all my supplies. He is also building out a work table that will be able to hold a granite table top. The guy building the kitchen cabinets is building this job. He has bought materials and will be starting it very soon, if he hasn’t already. I can’t wait to get it done!

On the topic of or kitchen …. the cabinets, granite and sink are all in and dh is working on getting the faucet hooked up. Water lines have all been run for the fridge in the kitchen and the one in the garage, the dishwasher, and the sink. Gas has been hooked up again for the stove. We just have to have the back splash installed. We are on the list and know what we want, just waiting our turn in line. The granite got started the day I left for my trip so I have not yet seen it all installed. I cannot wait to see it when I get home.
