My First Craft Fair

I attended my very first craft fair this past Saturday.  It went well and I was very happy to have had the experience.  Here's a picture of my space:
It was at a local elementary school, in the gym.  I sold some of my jewelry and several of my mom's handmade dream catchers.  My hubby paints and we had some of his art for sale as well.

Tomorrow I am going to be in a craft fair.  I'm so nervous thinking that I don't have everything done.  I will post pics after the event.  Hoping and praying for success!

Fall feels like it's here!

All the beautiful colors!  Yeah! 
Though I do feel spoiled because the weather has been so mild, I know that winter is on its way.

My children in their homemade costumes....

Overall, I think they were pleased.  I made all of my daughter's costume and adapted something my middle son had from a party for his costume and added a cape.  My youngest had just a cape to go over his all blace attire to be Darth Vader.  Fun!

What's for dinner?

I know it's not even lunch time but already I am thinking about what I will make for dinner.  I'll think I'll make Porcupine Meatballs (a family favorite). 
1 lb ground beef or any meat
1 large onion chopped
3/4 cup instant brown rice
1 clove garlic minced
Mix together and then roll into balls.  Brown in a hot skillet, turning so all sides are browned. 
Add 1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes
A few squirts of ketchup
1 dash of balsamic vinegar
A pinch of red pepper flakes
Stir to combine and cover for 15 mins.  Then cook uncovered until most of the liquid is reduced.  Serve with mashed potatoes or mac-n-cheese.

I started a blog...

I must say I have no idea how this works but thought it might be fun to post stuff that happens everyday.
