October is almost here!

Goodness!! Where has the time gone????

September was a steady but busy month. We have been getting ready for the Today's Woman Trade Show in Prince George on October 2 and 3 at the Civic Center. If you are in town, please drop by!

The weather has changed and I am finding it easier to be inside these days sewing. The yard clean up still needs to be done but the snow will fly soon I am sure.

The past couple of weeks has seen me make 87 AIO diapers as well as many accessories. It has been with the assisatance of my mom doing cutting for me that I have been able to do this. I am amazed LOL. I feel prepared for the trade show, just printing off pamphlets tonight.

I am all caught up, save two diapers which I just might do prior to going to the show, if not the right after.

If you are considering an order, now is the time to get it in prior to the trade show orders. As always, orders are accepted in a first paid first done fashion.

Summer is over!

Labour day typically signals that summer is over in these parts. It is a fair day today, but breezy...a great laundry day but I have not done any today lol...missed opportunities ;) My first year up here it snowed the first day of school! We will not be facing that this year but winter will arrive soon all the same!

We have had a busy couple of weeks. We went forward with work on the basement and it has all been re framed, insulated and now I have just added the last coat of mud on the drywall today. My hubby is staining lumber to make my wall to wall shelving unit for fabric.

I have picked a sunny yellow for the walls to brighten it up and help negate the six months of winter we are headed for. It should be cheery, and with a play zone for the kids also being worked into this area I think it will be good in the end. I just know I did not want a blue or green as they are cool and all I see out those windows for six months of the year is snow and ice.

I am currently all caught up and what a nice feeling that is! I have a couple of small orders to tend to this week that have come in over the wknd and then it is on to another stocking for both Hidden Element and BB Butts.

I recently made a difficult decision about my other congo dotCA. I have left that congo in order to focus on other areas of my business. I made some wonderful friends through my association there and am grateful for that. I needed the time and effort to stock BB Butts which I found was being neglected.

So back to school!! Two more days....the first day of school is a Pro-D day! Can you believe that?? Oh well, one teenager full of angst will be out of here for the bulk of the day which should lead to more peaceful hours ;) I am still looking at options for the girl for her last year prior to Kindergarten. Dh may also look for a library group for the littlest.

Hope that everyone is enjoying these last couple of days of summer!
