A foot of snow fell overnight.  The predicted high here today is 19, with a low of -7 this evening, and colder tomorrow.  Thermals and fur coat came out this morning!  But I'm warm and toasty inside....  had two more sales !

Yes Kris, I am closing Hollyhocks. It's just NOT happening here. After a break, I think I will scout for a new location. I need to find a place where the foot traffic is at least somewhat consistent. Mebane is not like that at all. I honestly do not know how some of these other places manage to stay open.

I just finished writing out checks to everyone who sold last month. I have some new product to put out and a custom order to make this evening. Lucky for me it's just a simple pair of earrings. She needs them tomorrow afternoon.
I'll try and pop by later if I have time. So much to do! :D

Hi Everyone.  I just thought I'd let you know that I am closing my shop here.  My last day open will be this Sunday.



SO.....if you would like any cards, now would be the time to snap them up :) 


Thank you to all of the wonderful people that I have had the pleasure of knowing, the new friends I have made and for all the help.  Hopefully we can still keep in touch.  I wish everyone the best and lots of sales!

Beth- so sorry to hear that, it's been nice getting to know you. And just because you close this shop doesn't mean you have to be a stranger in the forums. Hoping you are still going to be making your beautiful cards and everything is okay with you.

I finally took a few pictures and am gradually building on my shop here. It won't happen overnight, but getting a couple of things listed, between work and life.

Everyone sounds busy, don't forget to pace yourselves and take a deep breath now and then ;)

Is it wrong to laugh at my boys walking out the door?  Between their backpacks loaded with binders and books, lunch bags, sports equipment and change of clothes, plus music instruments....they look like a couple of pack mules waddling down the street! 


Other than that, the other day I baked a ton of cookies for Andrew to take into the office and to the job site (my tradition) and now can't even look at sugar!  Two kinds of fudge plus 4 types of cookies is enough to make me sick.  I also finished my family Christmas gifts and just need to get them in the mail.


today I am going to do some computer stuff as well as have to run out for Lacrosse equipment that I didn't think we needed for another few months; but I was wrong. 


Hope everyone is well!

 :( Sorry to hear the news Beth, but you gotta do what you gotta do you know. Please pop in to the forum now and then to say hi!

Kimberly, I just had to smile when I read that about your kids. It is crazy isn't it?

Oops, someone is coming in the store. Be back later!

Laugh away, Kimberly, consider this payback for having to haul playpens, diaper bags, toys, bottles etc. just to go up the road for a gallon of milk when they were babies (well, maybe not playpens - haha)
 ;)


Sorry to see you closing up, Beth, please do stick around in the forums!


Sandi, I sure hope you are hunkered down and staying warm, I think you are sending that weather my way

Life is full of choices, Beth, and we all understand that.  Do stay with us in the forums!

The high here today was 12 according to our thermometer!

Brrr Sandi,  it reached the 40's here early today but is now down to 21 and with the wind chill felt colder.
One more day to work this week. and I've been managing to add a few new listings this week :D .

I tried to get in to chat but had no internet service. The ISP said the outage was weather related.
