I love L.A.!

I had the best weekend in L.A.! It was business for my husband and a little business and a lot of play for me! My best friend and his wife are expecting their first child in December and I got to see her oh-so-cute belly! I can't believe that within 48 hours I saw downtown L.A., Laguna Beach, Burbank and Santa Monica! The traffic was a little different than in K.C. On the way back from Laguna it was bumper to bumper the whole way even though there are 6 or 7 lanes of highway! Even with the traffic and the low air quality, I just love it! It smelled like Spring almost everywhere (except downtown, of course).

Before I left Kansas City, I printed off some small promotional cards (about 1" x 4") and left them in various places, like in the restrooms at the airport, tucked into the magazines on the airplane, stuck in the windows of the newspaper machines in L.A., and on the counter at various Starbucks. We'll see if I get any hits from those! I made a sale right before I left, which really got my psyched!

It has taken a couple of days to return to Kansas City time and get creating again, but I am going to list more product this week, so I'm happy.

Finally Fall

Fall is finally here. It has been hard to believe it is October, as temperatures about a week or so ago were in the low 90s. I can finally feel the briskness entering the air and the leaves are changing color. We are going to have a lot of leaf clean up in our yard from our two monster white oaks! We've been rushing this past weekend to get the rest of our house painted, so I wasn't able to list anything for my shop. I can't believe it's already Monday! I better get rolling! I think I'm going to get my promotional postcards today. I can't wait to see them!

I finally listed a few items today and am preparing other product photos to be listed soon. I'm so excited!
