Just wanted to see if you were paying attention...
Well, as alotta you know, Lorie and I have been known to move around alot for one reason or another and most of them pretty good reasons, but this one is pure economics. We have both decided to close up shop and just do booth space with our furniture and stuff. I have had a shop for 15 years, so this doesn't come lightly to me and Lorie's Mother developed brain cancer last year, forcing Lorie to care give Ma 24-7, this year has definitely been a testimony to our endurance and love of our craft.
Strange goings on out there in this grand ol'country, we have been lied to, beat up and forced into business situations that should have never happened in this so-called democracy. If this ain't a recession...I guess I REALLY don't want to see a real one. One business after another closing down, families losing their homes and jobs, corporations taking over and controlling our government, insurance frauds and let's not forget global warming. Makes ya just want to start up a biz in the good ol' U.S. of A. doesn't it.
Well, enough of the bad stuff, let's get on with the good...I will still be selling out of Sister's Garden with all the painted furniture, soaps n candles and Lorie will still be doing her booth and trying to paint in between Ma breaks. You can't stop us now, we are just getting started...again. Then just maybe, I will have time to pursue my water colors again, thanks Cathy C. and Dawn(Feathered Nest) for the encouragement. There will just be a slight adjustment in lifestyle (what lifestyle) and always a positive outlook, but this blog should get even better. How can it not with such great friendships newly formed.
This crazy, close to 60, Iowa born and raised country gal ain't done yet...look out Barb(Sisters), I will have more time to think...scary huh...
So let's all get out there and support our great land and get some retail therapy...but if it says China or India, put it back on the shelf. If our government won't stop selling us out, let's all make the difference on our own...BUY AMERICAN MADE.
Peace AND God Bless America
