    Happy 2018!

    Here we are, once again starting a new year, full of hope, confidence, and excitement.
    The joy of Christmas fills me with the hope that “anything is possible”.
    Rather than slipping into those after the holidays blues, focus on the possibilities of the new year.

    Sometimes I feel like a kid when I am drafting my new year’s resolutions.
    What can I do to make me a better me?
    What can I do to make things better for someone else?
    What can I do to make the world a better place?
    The possibilities are endless.

    I used to set very lofty goals for the new year, much like following my 1, 5, and 10 year plans.
    I have decided to treat resolutions differently this year.

    I am answering each of the questions I posed above with at least one action item and timeline.
    These are not things that I have to do. They are things that I want to do, and am committing to myself to do.
    I will hold myself accountable.

    The best way to reach a goal is to make it measurable and time bound.
    One of the most common resolutions is to lose weight.
    Well, “losing weight” isn’t really a measurable goal, but how about losing 10 pounds by the end of February?

    Good luck with your resolutions – you can do it!

    Let 2018 begin!

    Dressing Up The Dining Room Table

    One of the antiques that has been on my wish list for several years is a wooden dough bowl for my dining room table. I’ve seen gorgeous examples and have many ideas of how I would decorate one of my own.

    I was fortunate to find one in my price range this fall, and I Wooden Dough Bowl was very excited to decorate it for the holidays.


    Gearing up for fall craft shows

    Good morning!

    We are getting ready for the fall craft shows! The weather has been beautiful in our area. Sunny, high 70’s. I love fall – cooler weather, the beautiful colors of the leaves, hot apple cider, and all things pumpkin! While I enjoy visiting other places, I do love the change of seasons that we are able to witness in the midwest.

    We will be attending the following shows:

    Saturday, October 15 – Inside Out Craft Fair, American Legion on 40 Hwy in Independence, MO

    Saturday, November 12 – Holiday Handmade Show, Ottawa Middle School, Ottawa, KS

    Stop by to visit our booth and the other vendors!

    Enjoy the fall season!
