COME ON 2017

It's almost time for a NEW YEAR.

I'm so ready.  How about you?  2016 was filled with ups and downs.  For some of you, more downs than ups.  In many ways, 2016 was better than 2015 for me.  That's  not to say that it wasn't without it's challenges.

However many ups and downs you faced in the past year, I'm wishing you all the very best in 2017.

And the angel answered and said unto her,

The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

St. Luke 1:35

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah: 9:6

Wishing you all,  JOY, PEACE, and, HAPPINESS

I just finished my last show of the year.

As I mentioned in my last post, I've set up at around 30 shows since March of this year.  That includes four Holiday Markets in a row.

As tired as I am, I'm happy.  If some of you may recall, I was without a vehicle last year, and, missed quite a few opportunities.

Maybe I overdid it this year, but, I'm grateful I had the transportation to do these shows.  I'm also grateful for the show promoters, and, customers that made each show possible.

Time to clear my head, relax a bit, decorate, spend time with family, and, friends.  Oh, and, yes, I'm watching my health.

It's been show-after-show-after-show for me this year (somewhere around 30 to be exact).  I've also been back and forth to the doctor, working on getting my blood pressure under control, and, ruling out other possible issues.  I just got through The Mistletoe Market in Chesterton, IN, all while wrestling with a horrible cold.

So, I'm looking forward to my last show of the year.  What better way to end my show season (or should I say year) than with the Hunt & Gather Market in Crown Point, IN.

It'll be a wrap after this.  I'm ready to chill, decorate, and, enjoy Christmas with family and friends.  I need to rejuvenate.

I'll also have more time to work on my Etsy, and, share pics with you all.
