Many Hands Make Light Work

Thank goodness there are “many hands” at our house today! This weekend, the city of Rayne is hosting their annual Frog Festival. Our small family business will be out there on Saturday, selling our wares, thanks to my super boss. She was willing to share a booth with us. So after tackling the few tests we have to complete today, our family will be preparing the basket of goodies we will be bringing to the festival. If you are in the area, come check out all our Kittles Family Artworks goodies and the textile goodies from the Sew What! shop.

I used to sell my jewelry under the name Rond Alainn when we were living in Texas but when we moved back to Louisiana, I had to stop. We had to find out all the ins and outs of selling things in Louisiana and we had to make new connections. There was no time to do that immediately since we also had the task of settling into the routine of living in a new place. Our old friends had, of course, moved on and grown in their own paths and made new friends, which meant we had to make new friends, as well. You know how the saying goes: “Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver and the other, gold.” There’s truth in that saying. I’m happy to say we’ve kept most of our old friends and made some awesome new ones, adding to “the family we chose.”

I can’t type too much today but I wanted to share a bit of my excitement about being able to sell our things to the public at a live event. It’s been so long since I’ve done so, that I’ll have to dust off all my displays! I’ve also had to refresh my packaging and supplies, and check through all my tags and pricing… Crazy! Well, what is life but a wild roller coaster ride, eh? Have fun! I intend to do so.

Laugh a lot and remember to breathe!
