Bad Eyes ...

... and a bump on the head. I had a fight with the handlebars of a handicap scooter as I was loading it into the back of the SUV 5 days ago, and there is no hiding it! It looks worse than it feels, and the color has increased since we took this yesterday. My kids have tried to politely remind me that I'm not 35 any more. I hate to say they're right, but -- they're right. I'm going to try hard to think, and remember this, before I again attempt something questionable!!!

We SHOP a holiday show

Cheri and I have always loved the Junior League of Kansas City MO's Holiday Mart and this year's show was special. (This is the second largest Junior League Holiday show in the country). We hoped to get some ideas for our booth layout and, like always, we had a great sister trip as well. What made it so extra special was seeing friends we've made on our show travels who have been vendors with us at other shows. Several were vendors in KC this year. Here's Cindy, (and hubby, Jerry) owner of Treasures of the Ozarks. We had booths across from each other in Dallas last year. Although she also designs jewelry, hers is very different from ours. It is really beautiful. Check it out at

I spent Wednesday through Saturday at the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo in KC taking classes and buying supplies for our handbags. Watch the blog to see my special purchases!
