Mistletoe Market in Perrry, Ga.

For those of you that are in the South or even those that like to travel to Christmas Market/Craft Show Events, you must come to Perry Ga. the weekend of Nov. 21-23rd for Mistletoe Market. There are so many different types of vendors and Santa makes a grand appearance for pictures on Sunday!! Last year, as you have read in the past I did so well with my journals and hope to expand on that even more this year with greeting cards, paper wreaths and my paper covered music boxes. I will be having a drawing this year so make sure you mention this blog post to enter. You may want to check back here in the next couple of weeks for a giveaway just to get everyone in the mood for Mistletoe Shopping!!!

I finally got Photoshop and cannot do a thing with it! I worked for several days off and on to complete this side bar ad for Lollishops and still not sure if it looks good enough. Graphic artist I ain't!!! There's just no better word for it, AIN'T!!!! If someone out there can tell me how to make this better, please let me know!

The pic is of an angelic music box I have been making and well, I am so glad to be done with the first of many. I have to get busy because Mistletoe Market is just around the corner and I have lots of doll heads lying around. Tags and greeting cards are everywhere as well as antique books torn to pieces and just patiently waiting to be put together as journals. Might lose what little mind I have left in the process but I love to have a deadline and be under pressure to meet it(told you I was psycho).
In the midst of all this chaos, my youth group is coming over on Sat. ,after all the Halloween insanity, for a bonfire fellowship. I have to get this house cleaned from top to bottom, the back yard stripped of all the toys and cover the hole that the boys have been digging to China, not to mention find wood for the bonfire and something for everyone to sit on. Little bit crazy around here but like I said I somehow thrive under pressure. May forget to put on my bra on any given day but I will get this all done!
I have a ton of pics of the new tags and greeting cards that will go to Market with me as well as in my etsy and Lollishop, hopefully will get them added during this week.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and will be safe this Halloween!!!

Sneak Peek

Who can get enough of this? If only all men looked this way in a skirt!
Look at the chick behind him bent over trying to peek!!! HAHAHA.

This is a sneak peek of a new product that is almost done!

If you haven't seen Fireproof the movie, go now and then get this book!

Another sneek peek of a project I have worked on forever.

I have so many more pics to post and projects to show but I have to head off to church now. My youth drama team has performance tonight and I get so nervous that the message will be lost in translation so if you are a praying believer, please pray that we reach all of the youth tonight. Our drama is abt. Drive Thru Church-a place where the church gives you exactly what you want not what you need.
If you haven't checked out Lollishops yet, you just don't know what you are missing, get on over and check out the amazing creations that will be available in 1 month. I'm so excited and have so much stuff to finish along with all of the products I will be selling at the Mistletoe Market in Perry Ga. on Nov. 22(the whole weekend).

Just a little eye candy!!!!!
Car Show at the State Fair in Macon, Ga.
This shot was after fighting over the middle spot!
Brady was so excited only to hang there forever.
Chandler, Griffin and Brady at the fair, look at Brady's profile!!!!

I have been so nuts (my husband states that being nuts is not new to me) lately, volunteering at school, overseeing the drama team at church, teaching SS, working on goodies to sell at Mistletoe Market in Perry Ga., Lollishop items and that is on top of running a household and managing collections at the paint store! I am so blessed to have all of this going on and to be used by God in all of these situations, Thank You God!

I have also kept my mouth shut abt. this election mess, obviously God calls us to love everyone, but I am begging everyone out there to sincerely fall on your knees and pray out to God that his will is done and that this great country turns from wickedness and back to him. Being a born again Christian means that I have nothing to fear in the future, no matter what happens in this life I will be saved in the end, but we all sin and my fear(my sin) gets control over me at times and I do FEAR where this next month may lead us. I went to Barnes and Noble yesterday and found a book by Max Lucado on this very subject, whether you are a Christian or not I highly recommend reading this, praying over it and letting God's choice of president win. Max Lucado points out that God allows all leaders(good or bad) their time in the spotlight, it might have been because the people thought they wanted him and God taught us a lesson thru that or that God was allowing bad things to happen so that we would rely on him and not ourselves, either way no one comes into a leadership role without God allowing it to happen. My prayer is a selfish one and that is that we turn back to him without anymore punishment and that the Leader we elect will be the one that is a Godly man and will follow God's ways and not his own. Even if you are in another country and reading this, please pray for the United States and the sinful mess we have in this country. No, I am not convinced that either man is Godly, in fact if I had to guess I would say neither are but I can see which is the lesser of 2 evils from what their actions in the past have been and by what they say today but even that can all be a disguise so I am asking God to show me what man he wants in this job.

Ok, soapboxes are not a new item that I am working on so I will shutup for now!

I have been gone from here for so long I have tons of pics to post but I will try to stretch them out over a few posts. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, it'll be managing a yard sale for me, UGH!!!
