Awesome News for Me~New Gatherings~Thoughts!!

A Big Huge Howdy to everyone... I hope everyone is having an awesome Day today!!

I woke up in the greatest mood this morning, no particular reason but it sure felt good since I've been in a funk for weeks it seems. Winter Blues like many of us out there.

I have the greatest news...Remember me telling you all about my Eye Doctor asking me to create the Rice Bags in hopes that I might start a side business creating them for his Practice.
I had my appointment on Tuesday the 25th. Good day to deliver the finished Rice Bags.
I took 11 bags in and am happy to say paid down my bill ..gotta love the barter system!!
He called me this morning and made my already happy mood 100% happier.
He sold all 11 Rice Bags in two days and he ordered 20 more. I think  will make 40 and have them ready to go when he has the next 20 sold.

Now here is even more good news to go with the new order. He said he will be sharing the Rice Bags with other Eye doctors at his next conference as well as with fellow eye doctors in our area and very possibly will turn this into an even larger little business.
If his selling 11 bags in two days is any indication of what I might expect I could have myself a nice little business going on in no time at all..
As I sit here thinking about this I had to kinda laugh at the whole thing.
It was pain and the serious problem with my eyes that took me to the Eye Doctor in the first place. All the panic about my eyes and how I might pay my bill actually turned into a little business that would pay off my bill, take away my panic and possibly even turn out to make extra money..
 Now that deserves a huge pat on the back and put a huge smile on my face and in my heart!!
Not to mention a huge prayer of Thanks that God gave my hands the ability to create!!

Speaking of creating Yes I've been busy all week creating!!
Here's your sneak Peek at all the new creations.

Talking about barting...Time to start paying off my barter on getting my van fixed. Tonight I will start Spackling my Son-n-Law Shane's Paint room.
I'm actually looking forward to it... I need a good break from my daily routine creating and this will be a fun one as I like to spakle. I won't get it all done tonight but I'll get a good start on it and maybe I'll work on it tomorrow as well...I'll have to see how my arms hold up..

Well Ladies and Gents time to get busy... so I'm off to cut out Rice Bags and get those started...
I bid you all a wonderful weekend filled with happy Smiles!!
