NaBloPoMo: National Blog Posting Month

So yesterday I got hip to NaBloPoMo: National Blog Posting Month. The idea is simple: blog every day for one month. I just signed up today. I found out that some months have a theme but November doesn't. What November DOES have that other months don't are PRIZES!!! Anyway, I'm going to give it a shot to see if I can do it. I've tried NaNoWriMo a couple of times but couldn't manage to finish a 50k word novel!!

Anyway, my goal for the weekend was to post some handmade goods for sale in my Etsy shop. Friday evening I set out to take photos of some stitch markers to post, only to find out that my camera doesn't work (never mind that it worked fine last week). Canon customer support says it sounds like an issue with the image sensor, so I have to send it in for repair. So instead of selling those stitch markers, I'm going to donate them to the goody bags that will be distributed at the Sticks N Stitches event in January!!! How cool is that? As my Momma says, I have enough beads to sink a battleship, so I can make stitch markers to sell once I get my camera back and can actually take photos to post to Etsy. I've committed to make one lovely stitch marker for every goody bag (right now there will be at least 100 but could be as many as 150). I have 80 of them made up now, and this week I will work on making nice cards to include with each one. How exciting is that? Take a look at my post from Oct. 22 to see examples of what some of the stitch markers will look like :-)

That's all for now. I gotta go get some dinner, iron some work clothes for the week and settle in for a bit of knitting. Post one is done ... 29 more to go!!
