So what is everyone thankful for? I am thankful for a wonderful husband, beautiful children, great parents, our house, my lovely pets that itch too much, my little business, good friends, energy drinks and my espresso maker.
Tomorrow morning my mother and I will be heading out into the shopping madness. I have always sworn that I would never participate in the after Thanksgiving craziness, but we need some things and why not go when it is on sale? A couple of mocha's from Starbucks and we should be good to go.
Business is definitely picking up. Thank you Christmas season! It is keeping me busy busy.
Well, add this to the growing list of boring uneventful blog entries, but I thought I should write something since it has been awhile.
Happy eating everyone!

Speaking of entertaining things, we watched Get Smart this weekend. That was one funny movie. I highly recommend it. It was right up there with Fun With Dick and Jane. Although not quite as good as Too Wong Foo Thanks For Everything Julie Newmar. Then again, nothing is as good as that movie. Okay, that may be a bit of exaggeration. Go watch Get Smart.

I'm glad I did it, though. Like I said, I learned some things and I know not to do any more small arts and crafts shows. There is a art show in Hyde Park square each year and I think I will try to get into that next year. It is a juried show so I'll have to submit photos. I think I would fit in there better. It is more of an art show. No penguin egg ornaments or crocheted pot holders. There is nothing wrong with those things, but melting clocks don't fit in with them so well.
Thank you to the lady that bought the magnet!
Ah, it is late. Almost 11:00 and Karina is fussing. Both kids have been sick this week so fun fun. I call Karina my growth because she is attached to me like glue normally, but when she doesn't feel good it is even worse. She is so stinkin' cute, though, I don't mind.
Hope everyone had a happy weekend.
Oh yeah, my hits have been crazy all of a sudden tonight. I'd love to know where people are finding my site. Feel free to let me know where you saw me. Thanks!

My first batch of magnets is completed. I think they turned out great! I added a white highlight to the border and I think it made all the difference. I have two available on Etsy. I am looking forward to seeing the response I get at the art show this weekend.
I was an ornament/magnet machine yesterday. I painted 30 plus of the mini clocks. Now I just need to finish 20-30 more for this weekend. I want to make sure I have plenty of each color in case one color is more popular than the others.
Eli and Karina have been sick. I have to take Karina to the doctor tomorrow morning. Plus I need to get to the polls before Nick leaves for work. I was trying to pack a large clock up today and Karina was fussing and fussing. She had to be crawling on me to be happy which made packing a bit tricky. I got it done, though. Hopefully the customer is pleased. The clock does look very nice! One of these days Eli and Karina will be big enough to put to work. Sanding then eventually painting, spraying, and packing! It will be nice, but I would be okay if they stayed little forever. Well, little and sleeping through the night.
