My goodness.  Time certainly seems to fly by.  I am a bit sad that this blog has not flourished in a way that I had hoped when I first started.  It seems that it is more and more difficult to find the time to post.  But I am determined to keep it going and to post often as I can.  Let me fill you in on what has been going on.  Kathi, Carla and I have been extremely busy.  Two weeks ago, we participated in our first Morton Pumpkin Festival Craft Show.  This was very exciting for us.  As I have posted on this blog, we started our company, SistersCg, almost two years ago.  We did a few local craft shows and earlier this year were so very fortunate to be able to rent a space at Second Betty, an awesome shop in Peoria Heights.  We also wanted to stay involved in a few craft shows each year.  The Morton Pumpkin Festival Craft Show was at the top of our list.  Early this spring, I submitted our application but received the news that there were no spaces available, however our application would be kept on file in case of a cancellation.  This is a large craft show with a wait list to get in, so I did not think our chances were good.  About ten days before the start of the festival, I received a phone call saying that there had been a cancellation and asked if we wanted the space.  We were so excited and of course said yes!  However, that meant some very long nights of crafting and planning.  Remember, the three of us still work full-time jobs!!!  What a great time we had.  This is a 3-day outside event.  The first day was cold and wet.  In some of the pictures below, you can see our little area wrapped to keep out the wind and rain.  The next two days were very nice.  We sold a lot of things and made some wonderful contacts and new friends.  We spent last Saturday morning at Second Betty rearranging our little corner of the world with delightful fall items.  I hope you enjoy the pictures.Read More »
