Also, looking at these photos, I realize that the table with my sign should be right where my chair is sitting, so I've learned something. I know it helps to take booth photos before the show starts and now I just need to keep making it happen, so I can catch these things early and make changes, since every show set-up varies just a little. Thankfully, one of the organizers went out of her way to get me a clothing rack, since I left half of mine at home (about a hour away!). Now that's going above and beyond! Thanks Jenn!

I've been trying to replicate a recipe I thought I remembered. Finally, I looked in my recipe box and found the scrap on paper on which I had the recipe scribbled. Why didn't I think of that sooner? At any rate, you can see that they are quite tasty and irresistable!

Putting the pieces together for the recycled card, using some sparkly paper I found in stash in my studio... Originally I had planned to use watercolors that Fyn and I were going to paint, but that didn't happen this year. Maybe next year...

It was a fun afternoon of creativity! We worked on some wooly stockings and enjoyed hanging out together. All the babes stayed home with the papas. Wonderful!

While I always carry bags, I found myself in need of one colossal tote that could hold all my other bags, so I could arrive with one bag in hand. Little f seems to think it's so I can carry him!
Need one? I'll be selling them this weekend at the Holla-day Bazaar at the Inside Out Gallery in Traverse City. Can't make it? Let me know and I'll post some on my etsy site.
We made our lanterns really early this year, at Michelamas instead of Martinmas, but it worked out great, b/c they were ready to go when we needed them. We had a bonfire and walked around a large field, stopping midway to hear the story of St. Martin and how he tore his red cape in two to share it. We sang songs, including our favorite, Glimmer, Lantern, Glimmer. Little f's favorite line is "wander tripping little gnome". We did a little of that, and ended up back at the bonfire. It was so magical!
