Last Saturday (11/8) we had a yard sale.....where do we get all this JUNK??!! Anyway, we laid all our stuff out for folks to buy...we did pretty well considering most, if not all, of our "merchandise" was pitiful. The kids set up a coffee stand and were selling cups of coffee for .25....they had a good time (at first anyway).

We have a rule in our home....anything that goes out for a yard sale doesn't get put back. So, around noon we loaded up any unsold items into the truck and took them down to the Good Will. Viola! Instant clean up!

Breast Cancer Awareness Vendor Booth

Today I, along with the help of my daughter, Madison, sat up a Stampin' Up! vendor booth at the local Curves which was hosting a Breast Cancer Awareness Event. I had never sat up anything like a booth before so it was fun getting all the stuff ready. I didn't come away with tons of sales or bookings, but I did make a few contacts for future stamping events and talked with quite a few ladies about stamping and Stampin' Up!.

The Event raised approximately $500.00 in a silent auction, all of which will go to the fight against breast cancer.

Overall, I had a fantastic time talking with folks about SU, browsing the other vendor booths, and being part of such a worthwhile endeavor.
