Fall Festival

I am good at taking on more than I can handle and this week is no exception.  After my husband's first week at his new job, my family was looking forward to a relaxing holiday weekend that included church and a BBQ with friends.  Not much more than that. 

Then things started happening, like they always do.  While perusing the newspaper last week, I discovered an ad for a fall festival in a nearby city.  My first thought: that would be a fun, inexpensive family outing.  Second thought: I could be a vendor and get my scrapbooking/stamping business off the ground!  Before I knew what was happening, I had a booth lined up and was ready to roll.  Except that I had no product ready for display or purchase.

My family has been very patient with me all weekend while I have been cutting, stamping, and assembling while dinner is cooking, during movies, after everyone else goes to bed and every other chance I get.  Don't worry, no one has felt neglected.  My husband is happy that I sat through his movies with him and the kids cant wait to go sell some cards.  Often things don't have to work out the way we plan for them to work out perfectly.
