Where I've Been

I got lost but I found my way back.  
I participated in my first Holiday Boutique ever and it was great! 

I had a total of three weeks to prepare for the Holiday Boutique and in that time I managed to knit six scarves......

My hubby and I made a few photo holders that eventually sold out.....

I pulled a few all-nighters to make one-of-a-kind ornaments and by the end of the show the spinner rack was empty.  I already have ideas brewing for next year's Boutique and I hope to have a wider range of items due to me knowing months in advance that I'll be participating.  

I had a birthday celebration and you want to hear something funny?  I found out I'm a year older than I thought I was going to be!!!!  Yep folks.  All last year I kept thinking I was 54 years old and in reality I was 55.  I'm gradually getting over the fact that I missed my 55th year.  I can't believe it.  I was so bummed out.  My 55th year slipped right by me and I didn't even know it.  Oh well.  Anyway, here I am at the table waiting for everyone to sing Happy Birthday to me and see that smile on my face?  That was a smile of anticipation for my 55th year.  LOL!  Little Penny was the only one who didn't think it was funny.  

Well, now that you've had a few glimpses as to where I've been,  Penny and I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year.  May it be filled with good health and hefty doses of laughter.  And if you're 55, enjoy it for me will ya?

Hi Linda,
Great pics and post! I'm 54, or at least I think I am - though when I turned 51 I accidentally bought a "5" and a "2" candle for my cake, had to turn the 2 sideways to look like a 1 for my photo! We all got a big laugh out of that. Congratulations on your boutique sell-out tho' it's no surprise, you look radiant with your granddaughter and Penny is adorable!

That is to funny. Happy Birthday to somebody that doesn't feel her age, or doesn't know her age or doesn't do odd numbers? lolol
How cool to have sold so many wonderful things, well it doesn't really surprise me. Well done. :)Bea
