Basically, I've just been continuing to work on getting things organized and going again with my Close to My Heart business. I've had a workshop and will have my second one tomorrow night...I've done my first crop at the house...I've had an Open House and am planning another one for the 8th of Oct and will also be having my second FREE Crop that night, as well. Then a great fundraiser crop that I'll be doing with a friend of mine on the 5th of November and on to a Christmas Card Workshop and a Vendor Fair in addition to my regular workshop and Crop nights later in the month. So, lots of great things going on in the business area that are definitely keeping me on my feet and busy, but that's always a good thing!
I also attended the Volunteer Appreciation Night at the Majestic Theatre last week! What a wonderful night that was. The theme was the 50's, so thanks to my wonderful and talented friend, Pauline, she pointed me in the right direction for where to find a cute little poodle to create my costume for the evening! So, the procrastinator in me kicked into full swing that morning so I could get my outfit done by that evening! With Pauline's suggestion and a few stops, about $15 later I had the perfect outfit together for the party! (Gotta love Good Will!) The finishing touches were done with Close to My Heart ribbon and flowers and sparkles! The perfect way to top it off!
I really had a great time at the party and met one of the other Volunteers as I entered, so we hung out together until she left and then I waited until the band finished playing and headed back home! It was a great evening put on by the Majestic Staff and I am really looking forward to the season kicking off and spending time volunteering down at the beautiful theatre! Mary Poppins starts in just over a week and I can't wait! I get to go watch it on Sun afternoon, the 2nd of Oct, and then will be working it on Tues evening! I'm sure it will be tons of fun and a great way to start of the season! If I see any of you there, be sure to say hello!
I'm also planning to head home for a while in Oct., so I'm hoping to get to see some of you that I didn't get to see when I was there in July. Maybe we can try to plan a girls night out one night and get everyone together one night. Maybe I can enlist Stacy, Alan and or Cory to help with the planning of said fun! ;-) I'll work on it and see what we can come up with! In the mean time, let me know if anyone ever plans to head to San Antonio! (Tammy, I haven't forgotten. We need to talk soon! Give me a call!)
Anyway, I hope this finds you all well and settling into the routine of kids back in school and life settling back into the fall routine. Love and hugs to you all!
God Bless you all,
God Bless the USA,
