No Tricks, Just Treats

I have a few treats to share with you, as well as the latest update on our preparations for the big Flea Market next week...

First off, if you need a little sweet treat of non-scary trick-or-treat graphics for last minute crafty projects, take a look at my "No Tricks, Just Treats" clipart kit...

For just $4.99, you get 30 cute sticker-doodle graphics... 5 background papers and a bonus mini-poster with Scripture...
...just perfect for embellishing goodie bags, creating cupcake toppers, or whatever your crafty mind can cook up!

I have another "treat" available for you early this year so you can get a jump on your Christmas shopping. I've made my two original Scripture art calendars available for 2011 in my Cafe Press shop. I'm sure my friends and family are saying, "oh dear, THOSE again?" but there may be new readers who have not seen these yet...

This is the cover of the "My Cup Runneth Over" calendar...
(ignore the fact that the cover image says "2010" in the upper left corner - I still don't have my graphics computer back, so I don't have access to the updated 2011 cover image)

And here's the "Wisdom & Whimsy" calendar cover...

If you follow the above links, you will be able to see all the designs for each calendar on the page. And as always, I have made all 24 designs from both calendars available on notecards which you can see here and here...

Well, it's six day and counting until our debut at Larry's Old Time Trade Days in Winnie! Things are shaping up very well, but I always wish we had just a bit more time. I'm sorry I don 't have photos to share with you yet of the progress, but I had a SECOND computer go down sometime after I had loaded the latest photos (I deleted them from the camera's memory too). Fortunately, we were able to save the computer, but we had to reimage the whole thing to do it and we lost all the files on it. But, it's not as bad as it sounds - it is a fairly new computer and did not have much on it yet. But, the photos are gone forever...  But I have excellent news on my old workhorse art computer that went down a week or so ago - my brother says the data on the 2 hard drives is all in tact! (that's ALL my art files and photos to date...whew!) The problem turned out to be the power supply which he is replacing this weekend if possible. After final testing we will know for sure if the computer will be back 100%, but it's looking VERY good at this point! (Yay God!) What a relief!

I'll try to post an update before we start packing up the trailer on Wednesday, but if I don't, you'll know I'm just swamped with preparations. I plan to document the entire process of packing, setting up, displaying and working the Flea Market to share with you in case some of you are contemplating selling at such a market or show in the future. Maybe you'll be able to learn from what are sure to be our mistakes, as well as successes, along the way...

I hope you have a safe, fun weekend with your family and friends! Hugs, y'all!!


  1. So glad your files are intact on the art computer Becky! Whew! I will be so interested inseeing what is involved in working a Flea Mkt. too! Good luck, I'm sure you will do well with your beautiful stock:>)

  2. Hi Becky,
    I hope you have a wonderful sale :) I need to check out your calendar and notecards!
    deb :)

  3. Please do tell us all about the Flea Market when you get back. Even if it takes a bunch of posts! I checked out their website and it looks awesome. We do lots of crafts shows and Farmer's Markets but have never done a flea market and for sure not one that big. I wish you GOOD LUCK and that your time and effort will be way more than worth all the work involved.

  4. Hello Hello Hello..... I have not been to visit in soooooo long!
    I love your new calender and sweet embellishments!
    Hope all is going well with you sweet friend!

    Blessings, Dolly
