Last weekend was NC State Day hosted by Small Wonders of Cary Club. The ladies did an awesome job--- the project was great, the site was wonderful and there was PLENTY of good food throughout the day! I had a sales table for my friend Sydnie who is a member of the Cary club. Sales were good and I think she was pleased with the total. There were a lot of people hard at work during the day, I however, opened my kit, looked at the contents and put it all back in the bag-- except for the floor tiles-- a couple of other ladies really wanted green floors and I know I'm not going to use them, so I passed them on. I had a great time catching up with friends I only see once a year. At lunch we exchanged table favors- I made boxes of snacks for everyone and a grocery sack. After lunch the souveniers were given out and the centerpieces given away. The souveniers were a chair for the project and a plate of donuts and cup of coffee. For the centerpieces, we each picked a box out of a bag that was passed around the table. Everyone opened them together-- it was a pad of paper and some desk accessories (actually another souvenier), one pad of paper at each table said "you won". I looked in the box and then was looking around the table to see who won-- I was in such a hurry to see who won, I hadn't looked closely at my own box- see, I have never won a centerpiece and just figured my "luck" would continue-- well, I was wrong-- I WON!!!! The centerpieces were a half inch scale version of the main workshop. My friend Mary Ellen made the centerpiece on our table- a garden shed. I was more than excited-- what do you think? Remember, the scale of everything in this project is 1/2 inch = 1 foot.
Tomorrow is UPS at Debbie's house. I hope she has recuperated at least a little after last weekend and all the work she did for State Day.
Wednesday, April and I went to Charlotte to shop at IKEA. We had a BLAST-- it was a lot of fun. I pretty much behaved myself- I got a new light fixture for over the kitchen table-- hopefully it will be installed soon and I can post a picture of it.
Yesterday, I worked out with Megan then went to miniature club. After club I went to see Sydnie and help her as she is getting her house ready to sell. I know this move is a good thing for her, but I'm gonna miss her!
Of course, I've been working-- have to support my habits you know.
Tomorrow evening is supper club--we are bringing salad and garlic bread. I'm glad I've got it easy since I'll be playing during the day!
So, I guess I have been kind of busy-- and probably a little lazy too--- but that's some of what's been happening around here-- I know I still have to catch up with the calendar-- maybe on Sunday---more later!
