Manly Mondays Week #28

It was a creative busy weekend! The Christmas Craft Sale was a success. It's going to take me a couple of days to clean up the craft room. Next big project is make table and hall decorations for the Lions Seniors Single Christmas Dinner on December 8.  I've got plenty of ideas and plans for this year's event. Hopefully they will come out as I envision them. 

At the Craft Fair I had both of these notebooks available for purchase and can happily say that they both went. 

This one, a fella actually bought it for himself LOL

There is actually a funny little story that goes with this one.  Two ladies were looking at it. One lady with an Australian accent says to the other "I'm going to get this for Sarah".  Betty and I overheard her so we gently explained that it was actually created with a man in mind. She says "But it's so nice and I call her Honey all the time".  We then went on to tell her that "honey do" was to get your man to get chores done. She was not familiar with the expression and thanked us for saving her some embarrassment with a blush.  She did purchase another one that was more feminine that I will save for another day.

A La Prochaine!
