It's Friday Already?!?!?

Hello! It is going to be a reading post today as I am rushing around this week. Just wanted to let everyone know I'm still here!

It has been a very active time for our church. First we had "Old Timers Day". It's a fun time when we all dress up in ol' timey outfits and celebrate all the folks who have gone on before us. We gather for fellowship and a feast after church. We have to specify to bring a covered dish with food in it or we have a couple of empty bowls sitting on the table! We have had some really good recipes come out of these dinners!

On Wednesday, I cooked our bimonthly fellowship dinner. The meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans went over really well on a chilly night. Of course, the German Chocolate cake wasn't turned down either!

This Saturday we have our KeenAgers Fall gathering. These are our Seniors and they are an awesome group of folks! It's that covered dish thing again and we eat like kings! (Hey, we're Southern folk and our favorite thing to do is Meet, Greet, and Eat!) We also try to have some table favors for everyone. So, I have been busy making candy corn treats, Fall Fun Mix bags, and pillow box door hangers filled with goodies. I love every minute of it!

I am also getting ready for a craft fair in November. I hope to have some pics to post soon of some of the items I hope to sell. For now, the challenges and card making will have to wait a bit!

I appreciate you stopping by and listening to my ramblings! I am busy but still blessed and I am so thankful for the friends and family that share this time with me! Come back when you can, check the labels list if you like and take away what you can use! It's no fun to be a crafter if you can't share your ideas with friends!

Be sure to take time for yourselves and get out and enjoy some Fall color! We only have it for a short time so we need to grab the fun while we can! Hope each of you is well and Happy Fall Y'all!

Blessings to you,
