Nothing New

I did make some more cards but haven't had a chance to take pictures.

Still no possum in our trap. Maybe the mere presence of it in the yard is keeping them away because I haven't seen any ol' possums lurking about.

Big neighborhood garage sale this Friday and Saturday and a great chance to purge, purge, purge. I took tomorrow and Friday off to get ready and then host the sale so hopefully the weather is good, people want to find bargains and a ton of stuff leaves my home to go live somewhere else.

The Trap Remains Empty

I could never have lived in the pioneer days where trapping meant food and clothing.

We have attempted every day now for 5 days to trap a possum and we have had no luck. The closest we came was when the trap was sitting up above the ground and I saw from the second floor bathroom window a possum trying to figure out how to get up and get some of that peanut butter that it smelled. We were successful in trapping a squirrel and I felt so bad for the anguish that it suffered that I put out peanuts for it that afternoon. Maybe there is a smell left from the squirrel in the trap and that is what is keeping the possums away.

Here are the rest of the cards that I made before the craft fair. I did pretty well (I always consider breaking even well). The space was $80 and I made $87. Better than last year!

Busy Weekend

This was a busy weekend for me.
Saturday was the JUG's picnic with a surprise birthday party for Sue. She was surprised and it was a very good time. I stayed later than I should have and paid for it the next morning when I wanted to stay in bed but had to get up and out to the craft fair where I had a booth. Since I came in late the night before I was scrambling around trying to get everything together and of course I forgot things but all in all it was good. I sold enough to pay for my space and make a $7.00 profit. It was a bit slow so I count this as a BIG plus.

I Did Some Crafting

I did some crafting over the weekend in preparation for an upcoming craft fair. I have more pictures but not enough time to upload them right now.

So what is the plural of possum or opossum? Is it possums/opossums or YIKES!!!

Nothing exciting going on except that I have two possums that have decided that they like prowling my yard at dusk. Not happy about this new occurance and I have found out that the city no longer provides trapping. Which means, trapping myself and bringing the captured "friend (take another look at the photo above)" to the forest or paying someone to trap and remove. I am hoping to do the former and save some cash. Unless of course my "friends" decide to give me that lovely grin as seen in the above photo taken from the worldwide web and not a picture of the possums in my yard.

A Couple of Cards

I have been a bad blogger of late. I have also been trying to craft for my upcoming craft show. I have made some cards that I forgot to take pictures. Here are two that I remembered before either mailing them off or packaging for sale. Hope you have a great Labor Day weekend. I will be spending mine cleaning and crafting.
