Thursday I host around 20 people for Thanksgiving. Luckily we do potluck so I don't have to make as much, but being the person I am I will make way too much anyway. I plan on making turkey, scalloped potatoes, modified Waldorf salad, rolls and dessert. Others are bringing green bean casserole, pasta casserole, meatballs, another side dish and more dessert. Unconventional menu but should be good regardless.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday I will be at the show and Monday I will start adding tons of items to my online shop. I have been trying to add new pieces daily this past week. Just now I added a new hanging wall vase that just came out of the kiln. **Remember- I am giving away a free gift (valued at $8) with every purchase in November**

Today I made these three items and another teapot not shown. I got new stamps last week and used them some. My hope is that the teapot actually makes it this time. Third times a charm? Right?
Last weekend I was in Macon for a Christmas Made in the South show. The photo to the right is of my booth set up. Now I can apply to art shows for next year.

This past weekend I finished packing up for the show this coming weekend in Macon, GA. This is the earliest I have ever been ready for a show. Usually I am working right up to the day before. So I am taking the next few days for me.
I got up early this morning and went to a strength training class. Boy am I out of shape. I usually do a cardio class on Friday, but my arm muscles are sadly lacking. I do want to try this class again. Last spring I lost 25 pounds with Weight Watchers. In June I had my son's graduation and the trip to England. Since then I have plateaued. In March I am going on a trip with my mom, sister, niece and nephew. So we have decided to have a contest for whichever team looses the most by March. Hopefully this will push me to work a little harder at counting my points and working out. I hope to loose 10-20 more pounds.
By the way, with every purchase from my online shop in November, you will receive a free gift valued at $8. So get your holiday shopping done early and get a present for yourself.
