the sale!

well I did not sell out
but I did sell alot
enough to buy ALL the Magnolia stamps I have been wanting :)))
yep smiling over here!

I am happy not only because of the fact that I am gettin my stamps
but I got to spend a lot of time with my sisters
and every single person who stopped at my table
had one thing to say...
"you do beautiful stuff"
that was surely nice to hear.
I also had to laugh at some of the other coments like:
"man you got a lot of time on your hands"
or " you must not have any kids to occupy your time"
or "you must be a craft rep of some sort"
and " you got some kinda "craft thumb"
and smile at the ones who said:
"so gorgeous"
"wow...so nice"
"holy crap"
and ponder life lessons in some comments like:
"if I had money I would buy this for my mom" he was about 10yrs old
or a lady who carefully combed through all the cards & books & such, when she left she said " sorry I am not going to buy anything but you are quite an artist"

So although I did not make a million dollars
I had a ton of fun
and man oh man, it was good for my "crafty ego"
I know & appreciate that you girls say all the same things
and I love it that you come back here and leave such loving comments but...
you have to your my friends :)))
thanks for everything :)
