That sweater is adorable!!!

I'm at work and I got the stuff done that I needed to get done. Typical Tuesday, not many people out and about. Of course, it is quite hot out (93 or so). I just get so discouraged. I try not too, but it's really hard. :(

Hang in there!

I leave tomorrow for the summer - have a great summer and I'll be back in full force in Sept! I do have restricted internet (which sucks!) but can answer email and deal with shop related stuff.

Have a great time! I am going to try and take a couple of days off in Sept. Hubby will be away for his job, so it will be me and Farrah. Not ideal, but I'll take what I can get.

I'm not very interesting this week, but over the weekend we are going to replace some of the carpet in our entryway with laminate wood and then I'm putting up wallpaper border in our living room!  I'm super excited!

We did that with all the carpeting that was in this house. It was really awful and dated. I love my bamboo floors!

I think my brain is again beginning to function, though I wouldn't swear to it!  I'm at work, so nothing exciting to report.

Sadly, I am at work too. I've had 2 people in today for all of 2 minutes. It seems that people here have a real aversion to going down stairs. It's hard to stay upbeat when you have days like this. :(

I am home with the kids, enjoying the beautiful weather today and doing some gardening. My tomato plants started blooming, so I am very excited.

hehe yeah our second year in the house we replaced the nasty gross rainbow shag carpet in our basement with a more tasteful blue and gray checkered berber like flooring :)  I honestly like the carpet in our living room, but by the front door where my cat has had a habit of spraying in the past it's not so pretty.   :-X :-[

I'm at work. Luckily I had a new seller come in late yesterday, so I had her things to tag and get out on the floor. A couple other sellers stopped by with new product today too. Otherwise, I would be playing games or something. They have the intersection closed right by the store and so there is NO TRAFFIC here again. :police:
 How many ways can I say D E A D! I get to leave in 30 minutes. I think I'll have glass of wine with my dinner tonight! ;)

Oy, Teresa, I wish things were moving more quickly for your business!  It sounds like such a great store that just needs traffic.

Sandi, great job on the fair!  Love that photo!

I've been really busy with the day job and too exhausted to do much else, though I've had a few face painting gigs as well.

Tomorrow I'm going with Eric, my.sister, brother-in-law, and nephew to the Meadowlands Fair.  On Sunday and Monday I have gigs doing glitter tats and face painting at country clubs.

My SIL designed a new graphic to use as a header for my blog and a banner for my shop!  It got a little squishy on my shop and I'm not sure how to fix it or if it honestly doesn't look that bad....

Today I have a huge list of things to do (returns, bday buys, laundry) and I'm hoping that ripping up the carpet tonight won't be horrible for andy :)

When I get home I'll look up the banner size/proportions.  It's the same as Artfire, if I remember correctly.
