Woo hoo, hubby set up the sauna today and we had a nice sweat! It's a little two person far-infrared sauna and so good for you immune system. Boy have I missed that!

Yeah, I love creating and making costumes! I think some of the crazy ones I've made over the years. I made leotards when Casie was little because she was so very tiny, it was like sewing doll clothes. We used wild colors and materials - haha. Dance costumes are easy because it's stretchy fabric and I have two serger machines that cut and sew with four threads and it goes fast. The hardest costume, ever, was my son at around age 6 wanted to be a dragonfly...

Carol, that is so exciting!!!! Wow!!!

And thanks for the info on the business. Reviews are definitely supposed to help with web traffic.

I so wish you were closer so you could make Sydney's costumes this year!! We are going to start with what they costume catalogs have, and if they are good we'll use them. If not, I will be looking for someone to help with custom design and sewing. We have one woman in town who is pretty good at it, so we have one option!

Haha - I went on yesterday and wanted to reply to Laurie, then thought to myself, "Oh, I should wait for the Monday post"...duh!

Laurie - CONGRATULATIONS on baby number two!!! I am so happy for you!
We're going to Susan's house in Tucson to help with her house...I wish you were closer, I'd come help with yours! We just finished redoing all the floors in our new house. We chose fossilized bamboo, which is sustainable, solid core all through and has a 50-year residential guarantee! We got the lightest color and I love it! Now we're working on the bathroom, then the kitchen. Never a dull moment around our house!
I'm glad to hear that business is picking up! Having a good, comfortable place to do your work is essential. My husband set up on the kitchen table and suggested he could move somewhere more convenient if I wanted. I looked around and noted it had the best light, had a hummingbird feeder right outside for entertainment and was close to food...what more could he want?I said it looked perfect to me. Who cares if there is forever work and a laptop on the table if he's happy?

Heather - Selling candles sounds like fun! I've never done candles for sale, I've made them with kids a ton of times over the years. I made lots of other things to sell...mother/daughter dresses at Ren fairs (and capes, headdresses, etc), children's Adirondack chairs with fun cushions, jewelry...lots of stuff.
Thinking about your business, get everyone you know (who knows your work) to endorse you on Linkedin and also yelp. I'll text Maureen and ask her to come on here or fb and give you all of her suggestions, I'm sure she'll have good ones.

Okay...I have news! Yikes! I put an end date to my working and to the start of retirement this weekend! Next September we're renting a car and driving up to Seattle, then taking a ferry to Vancouver where we'll board a cruise ship to Hawaii! It's a ten day trip that stops at each island. Then we stay on the ship and go to Tahiti and the surrounding islands there! The trip continues to New Zealand and then Austrailia!!! We'll travel Austrailia for a month and then we haven't figured it out from there...Weeeeee

Hi all! I totally forgot to start a thread yesterday because I had the day off. I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. We had a lot of rain, but I'm not complaining because it really is nothing compared to what so many people are dealing with. Yesterday was bright and sunny and lovely out!

Congratulations to Laurie and her family for a new grandbaby on the way!! Yay!!!

This weekend hubby and I made six cases of candles for our upcoming shows. Tonight I'll label all of them so they are complete. So we only have one more case to make before our first few shows in September. After those shows we will make more!! I hope to sell bucket loads of these candles! They are really fun to make and I love them so much that it's really easy and fun to sell them.

I finally have gotten rid of the cold I had the last few weeks and feel like I'm 100% better. That's a good thing because I need to keep working out! I'm feeling energized!

Have a FUN and ACTIVE week!!
