Catching up!

Hello everyone! It's been quite a while since I have been able to post anything...I have 2 days left to work at Smith and Hawken and then our doors will be closed after 16 years at that location. I have worked there for 6+ years. It has been a sad time for me and my fellow colleagues, but we are ready to move onto the next chapter in our lives, whatever that may be.
I thought I would show you a couple of pictures taken last week (before I packed these into boxes) of the goods that I made for my show at a little country club. I made a lot of my chocolate books and almost sold out! That is a first and it felt really good to not have to pack a lot of it back up and take home. This is the Halloween side of the seed rack that I purchased and the next pic is the other Christmas side. I counted 154 little "books" and only came back with 30 of them!
Here is the Christmas side. It looked really good all filled up and I striped the product vertically. This rack seems like it was made especially for these little chocolate books. My customers at the show even noticed the new rack. I also made some calendars and cards, of course. People are buying and appreciating hand-made cards!

I just found out an hour ago that I have been accepted into another show on the 11th and 12th. I am thrilled, but also have to make a ton 'o stuff...

Thanks for checking in!
