All Packed and Ready to Go!

Finally getting to post on my blog today!    My sisters and I had lots of fun doing 2 fairs the first part of November.  We met lots of nice people and just had a blast!  The picture above shows a couple of the gift boxes that we sold.  They were a great success as was a lot of our items!   It is always interesting to see what sells each year.   Below is a recipe/organizer box that opens from the top.   This was something new this year.   You could also store passwords in this cute oven!

I made a bunch of these cute tea lights. They were easy to make and
we sold quite a few of them!

My husband and I have been packing up our house in Topsham.  We have sold it and are planning on heading to Florida again.  We are officially homeless since we don't have a home in Maine any longer and don't have one in Florida right now.  We plan on looking for smaller homes in both states.  The pictures below are of my Craft Room.  My daughter says there are more boxes in that room than any other room in the house.  I am sure it's true!

I really miss being able to go in and work on a project!  I know any house we buy will have to have a room that I can make into a craft room!

This room had such great natural light!    

It's going to be hard to say good bye to this house.  We have been here for 5 years and I really did love being here!  But it really was too big for us with 4 bedrooms!  Plus we want to spend more time in Florida so having a place there makes sense.   We will be here for Thanksgiving but will then head south to warmer weather- I hope!  I may be absent from my blog for a bit but once we get to the condo that we will be renting - I should be back!!

Here is a sneak peak at our Christmas cards this year.  I followed May May's instructions with just a few changes!  The picture doesn't show the completed card!  The card looks great with a tea light just inside the card when it stands up!

I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!

You are so good, and I appreciate that you include links to instruction videos you've come across.
