Well, our first craft show of the season is behind us. I'm always a little nervous about the first one - mainly because it is the furthest one away, and a bit hard to read. The rest of our shows are in this area where people know us. We did see some familiar faces yesterday and we are getting to know the Carson City regulars so that makes it fun. We didn't take as much to this one, but we still did better than the two previous years. It's funny because my soap just doesn't sell in Carson City, but the primitives do very well. The pantry side of the business isn't quite as high there either. But our last two shows of the season pretty much leave all of our inventory depleted.  We have some very faithful supporters and they help us keep going. Each venue has its own personality and it is a challenge to decide what we will take to each show.

We got quite a few stocking orders the last few days. I did these this week, but still have about 10 to go in the batch. We are at over a hundred already which is good. I was a little worried about how these would sell since so many people are tightening their belts these days. Here is part of this week's batch of stockings.

 It's fun to be a part of so many families' Christmas!

Word of the day:
Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Saint(s) of the day : St. John of Capistrano, Priest (1386-1456)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 22:34-40.

When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together,
and one of them (a scholar of the law) tested him by asking,
Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?
He said to him, "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
This is the greatest and the first commandment.
The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments."
