Another Month Gone By...

It is hard to believe that October is gone and we are into another November. Last November was a hard one for my family...hope this one will be better.

October has been a busy month for me and the Etsy Angels but we have come together and raised lots of funds for the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign in Louisville.

The totals are coming in but so far we had 140 sales that a percentage of will be donated.

The Etsy Angels are going to take November and December off and spend time to work on our own shops and to help promote each other and gain some sales for the holiday season.

I have 4 more craft shows to get ready for and attend, a new grandchild about to be born and am running a program on Addictions for the females in the institute I work November will be another busy month.

Oh, yeah I will also have to do a bit of Christmas shopping!

My Latest Project for Grandson!

My grandson wanted his room to be a big boy room and decided Camo was the theme. His mom is the designer/decorater but due to pregnancy can not do in comes Grammie...but Grammies is not a decorater.

He got his camo colors on the walls but not the design but he loves it and it all seems to be coming together...still need wall art and we are waiting for his camo netting to arrive to make a closet door covering. They live in a small home and every bit of space has to be utilized so his closet is storage as well as his new entertainment unit. We put his dresser in the closet as well to free up some floor space.

Two walls are painted the dark camo green, one the light camo green and the other a dark brown. We bought him the bunk beds and his other grandmother bought him the comforter sets in camo that are reversible. The brown curtains came with it but his mom is going to do something else to them as they are too plain.

He has some army tanks, men and other items that will be put in either shadow boxes or on small shelves. He painted his own light switch covers and plug in covers. As well as a hocket stick with pegs on it for hanging his medals in...he did a great job of making them match his camo bedding.

We are looking for some cool under bed storage units for his smaller trucks and toys. He confiscated his parents dvd rack for his movies and games and put at the corner of his bed....looks great but wonder how long that will all stay together and neat.

Wonderful Quotes to live by!

"Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you."
