Wow, yesterday's craft show went very well. We had misgivings at first because our setup was awkward, but once things got moving, we did great. Business was very brisk until around 1:30 or so which is the norm for most craft shows. I think people plan their morning around craft shopping and end with lunch. Then, after lunch, the crafters take advantage of the slow down to do their own shopping. I will have my work cut out for me with re-stocking the primitives. I have some Ebay orders to fill also, not to mention the Christmas stockings that have to be made and shipped. I love this time of year!

Evening update:
Spent the day steaming and packaging stockings to ship. Finished a couple more that needed sewing, packed up the Ebay orders, poured a grubby Scarecrow and did a cinnamon oil rub on it. Haven't gotten a chance to re-stock anything from yesterday's show. We are getting a lot of orders off of Ebay this year (aside from the usual stocking orders) and that's neat because I love making candles and soap, but there is only so much room for it here. Eventually all of those things need to find loving homes.

We sold a few more choir CDs this morning. We won't make our goal of selling out by the 27th, but that's okay. Once the people who have bought them start listening to them the word will spread about what a great CD it is.

Word of the day:
Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : Sts. Crispin & Crispinian, Martyrs (+ c. 287)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 10:46-52.

They came to Jericho. And as he was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a sizable crowd, Bartimaeus, a blind man, the son of Timaeus, sat by the roadside begging. On hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus, son of David, have pity on me." And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he kept calling out all the more, "Son of David, have pity on me." Jesus stopped and said, "Call him." So they called the blind man, saying to him, "Take courage; get up, he is calling you." He threw aside his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus. Jesus said to him in reply, "What do you want me to do for you?" The blind man replied to him, "Master, I want to see." Jesus told him, "Go your way; your faith has saved you." Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.
