It's been a long time...

March 20, 2019

I can't believe its been almost a year since my last post! 

In the last year I have taken my Itty Bitty Shasta out once to Linville Falls.  It was a great time and I get to meet some really nice people from the vintage camper group that I joined.  I can't wait to go back and see my new friends again.  I have kept up with them through the power of Facebook to see what adventures that have been on during the long winter.  Itty Bitty looks so lonely down there, but this year I have two, possibly three camping trips planned.  I sure hope everything works out that I will get to go.  I enjoy taking her out so much!  People just love to take a gander at her.

Today is the first day of spring.  Finally the time has come to start shedding the cover of winter and loose those winter layers for some lighter colors and coverings.  I can't wait, but I keep in the back of my mind that here in North Carolina the weather changes like you change your underwear, so there is a possibility that there could be more snow that may make it down this way.  I mean, I have seen it snow in late April before.  At any rate, the weather will warm up a bit and I will be dragging that drop cord and water hose down to the camper cover and start spring cleaning in Itty Bitty.  Maybe, I'll camp out in the yard one night!!!  What Fun!

Ok so, Since I have written last I have stopped consigning in one of my regular spots and taken on a booth rental at a little place called The Weathered Home here in Morganton where I refurb furniture and make odds and ends to sell.  I'm doing surprisingly well with this and actually have some spare time now that I've given up one of the stores.  I feel like a can take a day off and not feel guilty because I've not made anything that day.  I bought me a new stencil cutter and can now make nearly any sign thrown my way.  Just recently a customer asked me to make a very long sign and the cutter did the work in about 4 minutes where it would have taken me hours upon hours and a huge back ache to cut just cut the stencil.  I'll post pictures of that when I get it completed which should be later on this week.

Here are a few of the things that I've got in my booth.

Ahhh lunch break is almost over so I will close out now and get back to my day job.  Happy hump day everyone!  I hope the next couple days fly by and the weekend will be very spring like.
