A Very Good Day!

Sunday, November 14, 2010

Thank you my wonderful, awesome Spark Friends for your enthusiastic support, encouragement, prayers and comments for my Flea Market sale!

We had a really good day! I was blessed to have some sales, and it was so nice to get out and see some different sights for a day! The weather was pretty good, which I am thankful for! I got to meet several people, and so many of them were asking how soon we would be back!

The plan now is to go back in two weeks, and I am looking forward to that! I need to print up some cards to take with me! That is something I hadn't had the opportunity to get done, but several people asked for them, so I will make sure to get some made up this week!

I had planned to take pictures, but I didn't get the chance to do that. I will make sure I take some next time! There was one gentleman who stopped and visited with me for several minutes. He told me about his wife, who used to make a lot of beaded ornaments. His eyes lit up as he talked about her creations, and then he told me that he "lost her in 2003 to breast cancer". My heart went out to him. He said he will look for me next time he comes, and if he finds me, he plans to bring me some of his wife's patterns! What a sweet man he is!

I am getting excited for the next visit to the Flea Market! I learned a few things, which is always good! And, in the meantime, my fingers are itching to get back to my beads!

Have a wonderful day!

    Hooray! What fun! You're ornaments are so lovely; I'm sure people were excited to see them (and hopefully take one or more home with them!) I see on Weekly Spark Digest that you are in the top 5 Spark Points AND Fitness Minutes this month for the team again! Hooray -- You are doing FABULOUS!! Keep it up!
Let this holiday season be a time of creativity and joy, not all about food -- and you'll be that much closer to your goals by January!!

    OK.. I just sparkmailed you but I did also go back and see where you blogged about your ornaments in Sept. I saw more pictures... and loved them!
Do you have many left with the silver look or white gold look?? I think you made a blue one with the silver over it...

IT is just draped over the ball or is it attached to the ball?

GEEZ I got caught up in my questions and forgot to say

HOW sweet about the little old man... but how sad he lost his wife too! HE sounds like a wonderful gentleman! My mom had breast cancer but is a survivor!

Hope you made lots of money! (wink)
