Thanks so much for taking the time to look!
My mom is doing great! She had a kidney stone that broke up and was easily passed so all is well, again.
I am off to York, PA for this coming weekend. I know, what was I thinking when I was scheduling this year? Your guess is as good as mine! lol
Hope everyone is doing well. Be blessed!

I just spent last evening learning about trading on Etsy! There was a Trade Frenzy that I went to check out and was hooked. I started looking thru all the shops listed and started to think about Christmas, and thought "What a great idea!"
So off I went and I made 3 trades! What a great way to share my product and get it out to people. I also got 3 Christmas or Birthday (the dreaded birthdays at Christmas time!) presents for both of my daughters!
I also joined the TradeAHolics Etsy Team. If you are interested in maybe getting your name out there and meeting some other great Etsians, you might want to consider joining. This is a blog that will give you information about the team. http://www.tradeaholics.ning.com/
Hope to see all of you on the trading list!

I'm traveling with my mom and we are now in St. Joe, MO. Since we've gotten here my mom has been to the ER 2 times. Once for a UTI and yesterday for a kidney stone. Didn't expect to spend hours in the ER waiting room but what can you do. I am now off to set up the next art show so I hope the weekend will turn out great after such a crappy week!

I just got back from a working vacation, and I had a lovely time. My kids and I went to Minneapolis, MN for the Loring Park Art Festival and decided to spend a few extra days at The Mall Of America.
The first day was the day to look around and shop. We went to stores like Best Buy, Marshalls, Barnes and Nobles, and a bead store that are not your typical fare for indoor malls. We found all of our back to school clothes all in one place, and all on sale, too!
The food is plentiful and varied. It has 2 full food courts along with a multitude of restaurants. Some of them are Rainforest Cafe, Bubba Gump's Shrimp Co., Famous Dave's BBQ, and Ruby Tuedays to name just a few. We enjoyed going more casual with Long John Silvers, ourselves.
The second day was the fun day, and the kids loved it! We bought all you could ride wrist bands and rode rides for the whole day. The park is amazing when you think that it is indoors and has a 4 story limit. It has 3 roller coasters, bumper cars, the log ride, swings, and so many more. It was fun for young and old. And the best thing was the lines weren't all that long! I think the longest that we waited was 10 minutes! The park stayed open til 10pm so we had plenty of time to do all we wanted.
This was the funnest mall that we have ever been to! Even my 16 year old son enjoyed going and had no lack of good things to say!
