Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween No Tricks tonight, but there were a few Trick or Treaters…It was chilly tonight and not a lot of kids came by, which gave me time to work on my Romance On The Run Bags. Down Under on 42nd a consignment store in New Hope, is going to carry my bags. She requested a dozen to start out with, so in-between answering the door I was busy hand painting the canvas bags. I’ll have to get a few more painted before I stop by the local coffee shops and see if anyone is interested…But at least I’m done with school. I finished up Business Ethics last night.

Cold Minnesota Night

The only thing good about the weather turning colder - is I have a fireplace, a glass of wine, a stereo, chocolate and a leather reclining loveseat. Of course I don't have a digital camera - so I borrowed an image or two...The teenagers are tucked away - one at the dorm, the other at the farm with the puppy. So, it's just me and the laptop and lots of atmosphere to write romance.

A little windy....

After the craft fair....I decided to enjoy what might be one of the last nice days in Minnesota for a while...with Ruth...

Kisses .25 Cents....

I did a local craft fair today and sold kisses for .25 cents. Hershey Kisses. I also sold Romance On The Run bags, hand painted canvas bags with a transfer of my covers on the front, of course the bag contained a flower pen and more kisses...chocolate. It was a perfect day, the weather was wonderful, sunny with a gentle breeze that turns into a gust.
