~*Such A Fun Time!*~

Hello my dear friends! Oh... yesterday was so enjoyable! The open house couldn't have been better.... besides my picture taking skills that is. Everyone was so nice! Kris and her family (the owner of Dickerson's) are always so kind, helpful, cheerful, and talented! They always make me feel like I'm a part of their family.... and it is so special! The other artists at the show were super talented & super bubbly. They offered the most amazing Halloween altered art! I had never seen anything like it before. These girls had their kids involved with the fun too.... Trinity bought some gooey vampire teeth from one of their boys & I bought a voodoo doll made by another. (I don't know exactly what I will do it it... but it just looked like something I should have! LOL)

My beloved husband was so kind to help all day. He is not a morning person because of his normal work schedule, but he was up before dawn, drove the hour long drive, and catered to my every need. (Maybe I've said it before, but it is worth saying again.... Tony is the very best husband EVER & I love him so much!) :) My sister-in-law, Robin, showed up to lend a hand also. She brought along a hooked pillow to whip the backing onto... her third rug. (She is hooked on hooking!) We both worked on hooking, punching, and whipping ~ demonstrating the mediums was a wonderful way to stir up conversation with the customers. (Thank you Jo Jo for suggesting it!)

Tony's other sister, Jo, and her husband, Russell, showed up to vist.... along with my Mom, and even my stepson, Jamie, and his sweet girlfriend. Having the family interest & support was more than a girl could ask. Thank you all!!!

I did take a few photos right after things were set out on the tables. The showing was inside the mall.... which isn't very well lit, so the photos are somewhat blurry. I wish I had taken more photos.... but guess I got carried away with the day.

Trinity did a good job helping set up. He put the gourds in the box (homegrown... and something to add to the table display LOL) and spread Mary Jane candies about.

Making new friends, sharing with family, showing my was a really nice time! I can't wait to do it again!

Smiles to ya....



  1. Betty,
    I had a wonderful time. Thank you so much for including me.
    Your work is truely an inspiration to me. You have such cool stuff.
    Love your freind/sister-in-law.

  2. Betty,
    Your display looked great! I'm glad your open house was a success. I can't imagine it not being. Your items are just wonderful. You certainly have a wonderful hubby to do what he did. I can see you smiling as you type it....Thanks for your comment on my blog.

  3. Hi Betty,
    I'm glad you had such a good time. Your display looks lucky you are to have your helpers, too!!!!


  4. Betty, it was so great to see you and Robin! And I loved all of your show items ~~~ you've really been a busy girl.

    I checked my card from last month and Judy's hook-in in scheduled for the 11th so you should be able to go and also attend Americus' Days.

    It was nice to meet Tony (did he find that birthday party without too much trouble?) but I never realized Trinity and your mom were there too. Wish I could have met them also.

    I'm so glad you decided to demonstrate hooking. To me, when you're looking at a hooked item, it's more fun if you can 'see' how it's actually made! And it gave you something to do to make the time go faster!

    I'm glad I had the chance and the time to come see you. It really was an incredible open house!

  5. P.S. I LOVE your hair! So cute and so free!

  6. Wow, your table looks amazing! And sounds like a incredibly wonderful day. Your family is just too special as are your friends. Wish I could have met Jojo and Robin. Next time ladies! Ok, and I end this with, we need a pic of your haircut! : )

  7. Betty~
    Your display of goodies looks awesome. It's incredible how much things you had to offer. Wish I could have been there! It's so nice that you had so much family to come by and visit with and help.

  8. Betty, Looks like your show was a success! You sure did get a lot of stuff made....that is the hardest part!! Thanks for sharing pictures :-)
