Thanksgiving week.  Let me tell you what I'm thankful for.

I sure hope you all are about ready to enjoy a great Thanksgiving Day with friends or family.  We try to go to visit family, now that the kids are older, it's a lot easier than it was.   Of course, this holiday is a segue into a crazy season that as a maker, is full of deadlines, buying supplies and selling goods and each weekend is a craft show or vendor fair.  So, I ask you, please remember us small businesses this year.  We sure appreciate you and yours.  And enjoy this beautiful season for all it has to offer. ...

This weekend, I do a...

Well, here’s how things are going here: there’s frost on the pumpkin, but who cares because I’m inside under a blanket, knee deep in the Empress on Netflix. I digress, there’s many more important things going on around here than that. For starters, do you love this colder weather? I do! For one, its football season. We’ve been hitting as much high school football as we can, since Levi plays JV. He even got to play varsity the other night. Pretty cool! He had a 30-yard carry for a first down.
