Watcha Workin on Wednesday

I haven't workd on much for this week, but make sure you checkout Leslie's site more great projects people are working on.

Well, once again I have received the call to pack my bags to head south. If they decide that we are needed I will be leaving by 6am tomorrow. Yes 9/11. The Fire and EMS service are supersticious. It just feels weird to leave for a catastrophic event on 9/11. I am not as wound up this time as last since we were cancelled last time. I am at work and will once again pack up my ambulance and get her ready to go. Then I need to head home later and get some laundry done. I will be gone for 2 weeks if we go. Which means I will be gone for my birthday. No biggie though as I've turned 29 something like 5 times all ready... LOL. So, it you do not hear from me after today you'll know where I went :-) So please remember...

So on to what I've been working on. Other than what you saw on Monday I haven't done much except Christmas. I do wholesale to a few select stores and my friend Kim from Salt Creek Mercantile asked me to make Christmas pillows and ornies that would remind you of an old fashioned Christmas so this is what I came up with... also I have been working with Kim on her new website...Salt Creek Mercantile. If you visit please bear in mind we are not done and are having difficulties with the graphics person finding a picture she likes. BUT... here are some of the great items she carries... We didn't want to go live yet, but she has some great fall items that I don't want people to miss out on. Make sure you check back often as we are still working on adding items (fingers crossed Friday if I'm still here)

Pillow tucks there are red ones and green ones...

I made 18 of these with all kinds of Christmas sayings, but you get the idea... They are both red and green...

These pictures don't so them justice. I did read one page of my camera book and now must try what I learned to take better pics for you.

Pam from Wooster just a note I missed the Budweiser Clydedales at the fair... I totally forgot they were there until I saw the newspaper. I think my son would've loved them.

I have been feeling better, Mary! Thanks for asking. The joint pain stuff is really just about gone and not as many headaches really! I haven't gotten off the carbonated drinks...just the aspartame. I've been drink real Dew occasionally!

Did I tell you that my hubby might possiblye be called out with the hurricanes on the insurance side of things? So far...its good...but he's on the list.


Wendy said...

Hopefully the hurricane will not be as bad as their saying and you won't have to go!!! Take care!~Wendy

Mary, I hope you don't have to go, but if you do, know that there are lots of people out here praying for you. It takes a special person to do what you do!
Take care and hope to hear from you soon.

Hey Mary!

Just read your blog~ and learned about you leaving~ I am sure the people in LA appreciate you being there. Though I am sure it is difficult for you to be away from your family. You will be in my thoughts for sure. Sorry the food is sticky too!!
