Wednesday Whatnots

It's Wednesday-- already! Thank the Lord this week is going by faster than the last one. Things aren't going badly, but it's just a drag when the days between weekends go by so slowly.

So speaking of this week, I mentioned here that I had Etsy plans. I still might. Maybe. I just have to change my game plan. This change might have to wait until after the holidays. It's a matter of reconciling the price of what I'd put into making each item versus what I can charge. I also found more of my item on the market than I thought.

What does this mean? Well, a tiny bit of money down the drain. Well, not completely, my friends and family will surely receive these as gifts!

It also means trips to Michaels and Hobby Lobby to return items (some without receipts--yikes!), and I don't want to be near one of these stores any time soon, ESPECIALLY with a toddler who is not a happy craft store camper when his snacks run out. I guess I could just bring the entire bag of Goldfish. Yep, Allie, Goldfish, but I'm looking for alternatives! Today the entire city of Home Town, TX, was  preparing for Christmas at Hobby Lobby at 3:00 pm. Not cool.
I just don't have time for these return trips when I really should be Christmas or grocery shopping.  What was I thinking?

I glanced over to my "Who's With Me," the other day and saw 98 followers. That's pretty exciting!

*Side note--just saw a commercial for Crayola Crayon Maker. Where was this when we were melting crayons in the oven to create unique flavors. Yep, flavors.

I'm looking for some people who want to participate in a book swap. I've got my book sent as I'm supposed to, but none of my go-to peeps want to try it out. Anyone interested? I will send you the info.

So happy Wednesday y'all. I'm off to plan my return excursions!
