I was finally able to make another blanket after over a two-week hiatus. It felt good to get back to the sewing machine. I have fabric to make a bunch more blankets, so I've got to get moving. I'm hoping to do at least one craft fair before Christmas and I'd like to get my inventory up a little more. I also have a bunch of ideas for other things I want to make. I'm going to try to make aprons and i want to get going on my jean blanket. Hopefully that turns out well. I also have a lot of ideas for baby onesies and burp cloths, so I want to jump on that too. Whenever I go to the store and look at their patterns, I have a tons of ideas of things I want to try and sew, whether I attempt to sell them or not, I just want to try and make them. So, I think I'm going to try and just finish the blankets I have, then start making other items. We'll see how it goes.

I'm back from Florida, so business is up and running again. I actually sold 2 blankets while I was gone so I was happy about that. I'm excited to start sewing again. I brought some fabric back with me and I'm hoping to start making some new kinds of blankets and other items. I'm also interested in getting into some Craft Fairs coming up here before Christmas. I'd like to get my inventory moving so I can make some new stuff.
Our trip to Florida was a lot of fun. I had a great time with my kids. They are so much fun. Florida was nice and warm. Kind of sad getting back to Utah and having it so cold and rainy. We did a lot fun things. To read about it more you can look at my personal blog, http://chadshannonandfamily.blogspot.com.
Well, I hope to be posting some new things in the next couple of days. Meanwhile, here are a couple of pics of Florida.
Oh and when I got back, my husband had cleaned the entire house and painted our front room. It looks great! I've got the best husband!

My business has been put on a temporary hold since I'm here with Myra and Lexi in Florida. We're visiting grandparents and having a great time so far. The kids are loving it and I'm loving the warm weather. Chad's at home, holding down the fort and hopefully I'll sell something while I'm gone so he has to take care of the boring stuff like packaging and shipping. Anyway, I'm still busy thinking of ideas and have spent the past hour promoting on Etsy. Hopefully I'll get a sale soon!
