Missing In Action....That's Me!

I have gotten really bad about blogging.
Unfortunately it has gone to the back burner...and I am hoping to get back on track.
How are you guys!?
What is new in your lives?
Can you believe Halloween is less then a week away!
October has come and gone so quickly.
We actually had a snowstorm this was bad....and I am not ready for it.
A huge tree branch fell down in front of the store-we were so lucky it
 missed the store by inches.
This weekend is the Country Living Fair in Atlanta and I have been living vicariously
 through others looking at all the amazing Instagram photos.
Awwww....the Country Living Fair is simply....AMAZING!
Do you have one craft show or barn sale that you really like going to!?
They seem to be PoPpInG up everywhere these days.
I have been pinning a lot....trying to wrap my head around the fact that
it is just about time to bring Christmas into the store.
We are having a Holiday Open House in 3 weeks and there is a lot to get done...
but we will get it done we always do!!
Just thought I would share some of my latest pins with ya!
I am a Summer girl for sure but I do love how the cold weather brings
cuddling, fires, sweatshirts, and low key nights.

October has been a good month!!

October Craft Club....

I woke up in a Craft Club coma this morning...simply exhausted and
extremely grateful that our first ever Craft Club was a success!!
I was truly honored to have 18 of the most dynamic group
of ladies attend our October Craft Club!
To share my passion with others and to hear and see the joy in
their faces as they entered the store last night was inspiring.

I decided name tags were in order for this group!
I didn't want any part of the night to be awkward and I
wanted everyone to feel at home and welcomed! 
It was nice that everyone felt comfortable with each other
and we didn't need to go around stating our names!! LOL!!

Craft Club had the plaza rocking!
We packed the plaza with fun, laughter, and a 18 rowdy girls!!

After the store closed Kev stopped by to help me set up all
the tables...gotta love a hubby that goes that extra mile!
I am lucky!

Everything was ready to go all we needed were our crafters!

And just like that the store was filled with so much positive
energy it was hard not to enjoy yourself!

All the ladies got down to crafting right away...they worked hard
and their book page pumpkins turned out adorable!
It was fun to see how each person made their pumpkin "unique."

Group Shot!!!
Our youngest crafter was 10!!
She came with her mom and was a sweetheart!!

One amazing crafter made home made chocolates that were so incredibly good and
another set of ladies brought their own bottle of sip on while they worked.

The night flew by and everyone really enjoyed each others company.
Craft Club brought 18 ladies of various age groups together and it was magical!

At the end of the night some ladies shopped and then we all said our goodbyes!!
I would like to personally thank everyone that joined guys made
our first Craft Club amazing and have left me inspired to plan the next one for November!
