Going Fast

Tim and I have been so busy at The Brickhouse Craft Shop. Time is flying by and I have so much that I want to do...like bake cookies but I think my Christmas baking will start AFTER Christmas..I just don't have enough time to do some baking now. This morning we are going to the Food Bank to volunteer and then it is home to open the Shop. We were busy in the Shop yesterday which is unusual for a Wednesday. I need to restock and move things around in the Shop. We have been selling lots of our wonderful snowmen...I could kick myself for not ordering more of Beryl's snowmen..Yesterday we sold the last one! Beryl told me that she is working on new goodies for the Shop...I cannot wait to see what she has for us!
On Black Friday Tim and I had a visitor in the Shop. Susan from Henny Penny's http://hennypennyscountrystore.blogspot.com/ came to visit us. Her son, Sam, drove down from Benton with Susan....Tim and I were so excited to see her walk in the door...she is the nicest lady and her son is so nice too...he was enjoying reading all of our funny signs! Tim and I were lucky to visit her Shop a few months ago. She has the neatest Shop and wow is she talented..her quilts are gorgeous!
Then this past Saturday during our first snowfall Kathleen from K's Kronicles and her husband, Bob drove up from Myerstown to visit our Shop....I enjoyed talking with Kathleen and meeting her and Bob....such a nice couple!
My cookie baking may have to wait till after Christmas BUT not putting up our tree! We are planning on putting the tree up today...FINALLY! Oh so much to do...not only are our Snowmen in the Shop going fast so are the days. They say time flies when you are having fun and YES Tim and I are having fun. We love being Shop owners and we love our customers/friends who have made our 2 years at The Brickhouse a wonderful experience...we thank all of you who have stopped by our Shop or our blog....Thank you and may you all have a Wonderful and Blessed Christmas.

Hi Sweetie...
Patti I can see why your precious snowmen fly out of the shop, they are just so lovable. My gosh, people love homemade crafts. They like to have something that will last for generations to come, not commercial made from the store that doesn't last one season. Sewing is an art that will stand the test of time.

I love your blog, and I love looking at anything new you have made.

Have a beautiful day. Can't wait to see the tree.

Country hugs...Sherry
